Movie Review – Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation

Tom Cruise is back in his most impossible mission yet!  This is the fifth installment in the Mission Impossible franchise, and you’d think Ethan Hunt would’ve had enough and would be ready to retire.  But instead he once again has gone rogue in order to save America from yet another doomsday, World War III catastrophe.  Of course the CIA is trying to stop him every step of the way.  Lucky for him he has his crack team of Simon Pegg, Ving Rhames, and Jeremy Renner on the sidelines helping him out while he takes care of all the ‘impossible’ stuff.

Newcomers Rebecca Ferguson and Alec Baldwin add some spice to the mix.  Baldwin has a vendetta against the MI team, but of course turns out to be a pretty good guy in the end.

This is a pretty good movie, and Tom Cruise is a fine actor, but it’s just hard to take him seriously as an action star these days, what with all the couch-jumping and other strange off-screen antics he’s participated in over the last decade or so.  He’s believable when he’s hanging off of planes or jumping into a secret underwater computer terminal, but not so much when he’s speaking.  I just don’t buy him as a kick-butt, secret agent with a license to kill.

On other subject, there’s a new James Bond movie coming out later this year…
