Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation

Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation ★★★★½

Never gonna forget the raucous cheer in the theater when Alec Baldwin says “Ethan Hunt is the living manifestation of destiny.” Absolutely love them letting Cruise play it a little dazed after the underwater mission, and absolutely absolutely love that the big sequence they marketed the movie with, is the very first thing we see. The final resolution to this movie isn’t even a set piece or anything, it’s just talking and then running, and it still works. Ballsy!

Rebecca Ferguson is one of the best adrenaline shots this franchise has received and I hope her returning means she’s being treated better than the other women in this franchise seem to have been! This one is a small dip between the two franchise highs but any other franchise would kill to have this be considered a “dip.”
