Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation review

Mission Impossible -Rogue Nation

Polly watched many bollywood films recently. But now she wanted to watch some action Film. And there she got a treat with the release of Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation! Polly was already flattered watching the handsome Tom Cruise in the movie! Oh.. Polly Just loves him!

When asked about the movie Polly said that Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation is a 2015 American action spy film written and directed by Christopher McQuarrie starring the handsome hottie Tom Cruise, who reprises his role as IMF Agent Ethan Hunt. It is produced by Cruise, J. J. Abrams, and David Ellison of Skydance Productions. In the film, Hunt is on the run from the U.S. government as he tries to prove the existence of the Syndicate, an international criminal consortium.

Rogue Nation kicks off with a bang on Big screens, with the 53-year-old superstar Tom Cruise once again doing his own stunts hanging precariously from a military plane carrying poison gas. It required eight takes for him to pull that off. The film thankfully never strays into chemical or nuclear territory again, but the evil here comes in the form of a vaguely defined ‘Syndicate’ raging against the “system” and then “trying to change it” through means that involve randomly selected attacks, ranging from assassinating the Malawi head of state to the World Bank secretary.

The height joke, obviously directed at Cruise’s 5.57 ft, is played at least twice more in Rogue Nation, to admittedly good effect. So obviously, Polly was confused to the true identity of Ilsa, which remains a mystery for the better part of the film. There is an impressive scene under water, requiring a manipulation with stored profiles and computers — that’s where Hunt plunges through a shaft head first — and some crazy driving through Morocco on motorbikes and cars. A Vienna opera shootout is almost too beautifully orchestrated, with curtains, thin screens, holes in walls and a beautiful, beautiful thigh.

However, McQuarrie, who has now been associated with Cruise in several films but is directing his first Mission: Impossible, keeps coming back to Syndicate head Lane (Harris) and his iffy motives. It’s been 19 years since the first Mission: Impossible, and that scene of Cruise’s life hanging by a drop of sweat in it is still vivid in our memory. Or the first moment when a mask is pulled off and Cruise emerges from below it. Even the last film, Ghost Protocol, pulled off a near-impossible Burj Khalifa shot apart from giving us some heart-popping moments of suspense through certain tight negotiations. Polly missed that in Rogue Nation, though it ticks all the boxes, gives its woman a satisfyingly meaty presence, and has Cruise defying age again — apart from death of course.

But Polly was quiet happy to watch the film and no wonder Polly again fell in Love with Tom Cruise! Polly says it’s a must watch film for all the Tom Cruise lovers!
