Ethan Hunt returns with him team of highly specialize skills to fight against an organization as skilled as they are. One of the most anticipated movie of this summer, Mission Impossible Rogue Nation might has returned the “M.I” which almost started to fade away. After the 4th installation of the franchise, serious doubts started emerging on how the Mission Impossible movie line would continue but to our surprise it delivered better than expected.
The Gist of It:
Good organization vs Bad Organization
Following the shut down of IMF now Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) is blind with new adversary called the Syndicate. The Syndicate in short is a clone of IMF just that they want new world order via terrorist attacks in which didn’t go well with Ethan and his teams. A handful of IMF which consist of the previous group members, William Brandt (Jeremy Renner), Benji Dunn (Simon Pegg), Luther Stickell (Ving Rhames) and Ilsa Faust (Rebecca Ferguson) a British agent whose credibility is questioned.
The won’t die agent is back and this time it isn’t your regular spy movie, well it is a little abit but what I love about it was the manner it was delivered. It still has that quality in which you always wanted to know what the hell do they manage this kind of situation.
What’s new and refreshing is that Benji Dunn has more dialogues and his presents always help neutralize the tension. The rest is all the same with Ethan is an expert car driver, hand on hand combat and the latest is that he could hold is breath for almost 3 minutes.
The new would be Ms Ilsa Faust (Rebecca Ferguson) a double agent whose motive is still unknown. Ilsa Faust character reminds us alot of Emmanuelle Béart character the first M.I movie where her motive was unknown. Either she is a friend or a foe.
Ethan Hunt is more lively in this round, looks more mature and funnier. That’s the cut off part, where Ethan Hunt is funnier which we believe is really the one reason why the movie works this time.
The bike and car chases are still there with better improvement on the angle which a plus point basically bringing the audience a clearer view of the chase.
The upclose and personal concept in which is highly focused on the MI, MI2, and MI3 is no longer there. Which is good as the fans would love to watch and feel the gravity of the situation that the team is in.
Honestly it’s our 2nd favorite after the first MI. The plot is something new and certainly a better the previous installation.
Favourite Line: “Desperate times, desperate measures.”
p/s: They will tear out a BMW M3 like it’s worth nothing.
