Disassembled by C.I.A. Director Alan Hunley (Alec Baldwin) the Impossible Mission Force is forced to reckon with a mysterious Syndicate of evil operatives bent on gaining political and strategic power globally. Now, Ethan (Tom Cruise), Benji (Simon Pegg), Will Brandt (Jeremy Renner), and Luther (Ving Rhames) will have to outsmart, out muscle, and outplay their toughest chess master yet, Lane (Sean Harris). But what’s the connection to the British Prime Minister (Tom Hollander) and the mysterious femme fatal Ilsa (Rebecca Ferguson)?MI-Rogue Directed and partially written by Christopher McQuarrie all the requisite parts of your standard Impossible Mission film are present; however, a revived sense of freshness is unfortunately absent. For all of the film’s clever setup, its final bowtie feels all too convenient and tidy. Along the way to the finish line a loss of suspense falls into place; and, while thrills, chills, and spills aim to dazzle the end result is a relative shoulder shrug, you knew it had to go down this way. Still, a crash boom bang orchestra of action worthy of at least a matinee. This review will self destruct in 5 seconds. Mission: Impossible– Rogue Nation is rated PG-13.
