Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation Reviews

It’s hard not to be awestruck. The 53-year-old leading man hasn’t self-destructed in five films, and I, for one, can’t wait to see Cruise lunge forth a sixth time.

Witty dialogues serve as icing on the cake: In addition to ensuring a strong emotional connect, the team behind ‘Rogue Nation must also be praised for coming up with a screenplay which contains a scoop of humour. The use of witty and catchy dialogues like ‘desperate times desperate measures’ create light moments. This in turn establishes ‘Rogue Nation’ as the complete package.

Mission Impossible franchise has gathered a momentum all its own and there's just no stopping it. MI 6 is something of a cert. The only question on which we are ready to take a bet is how Cruise will try to get himself killed this time.

If you're a fan, then you're probably going to enjoy Rogue Nation - the film starts with a heady action sequence, and doesn't stop as one sequence follows another with staccato precision.

A winsome mix of old school and new, Rogue Nation will thrill you throughout.

This well-balanced entertainer is a visual treat. Cruise is a delight to watch - even as he indulges in the same shtick in all the M:I films (a tad bit tiredly this time, it seems). And whatever you do, don't miss the beginning.

The film is a must-watch for all those who love Tom Cruise. He is a great action hero, and the entire movie stands testimony to that fact. However, as far as the series goes, Rogue Nation is possibly not the best of the lot. Ghost Protocol had a lot more to its story, and Mission Impossible II definitely stands above the rest. This instalment will not disappoint those who love the franchise, but that is about it.

...will not leave the fans disappointed as it is one of the best films from the franchise. If the chase sequences and gun fights are your thing, then this film is definitely worth a watch.

Christopher McQuarrie (who wrote The Usual Suspects and directed Jack Reacher, Edge of Tomorrow with Tom Cruise) is at the helm of affairs here and he has peppered the film with enough action and thrills to make this fifth film in the series, one of the better mainstream Hollywood films in recent times. And they did it in 2D.

The story is cookie cutter by 'Mission Impossible' standards but it's the way the story is presented that makes all the difference. McQuarrie bravely spends time establishing character arcs and genuine conflicts that render stakes, so when our heroes are in danger you root for them to make it out alive. The film also moves at the pace of a hurricane, zipping from one exotic foreign locale to the other, yet somehow seeming coherent.

There is a 'bird', and a plane and Ethan Hunt at his best...What everyone will agree on, however, is that the finale is way better than the cringe-inducing ‘Indian’ segment from the previous movie. If this is the direction that this franchise is taking, then it’s a good sign that there’s only a gap of two years until the next Mission Impossible.

...features high-octane action sequences, along with a generous sprinkling of humor. It is an out-and-out entertainer, right from the cold open to the end credits. If you want to enjoy a film that is just plain and simple fun, catch this one in theaters this weekend!

    Crisp, Clean, & Faithful. ♦ 68%

    Rogue Nation is a film with lots of energy and novelty. Hunt's (Cruise) escapades are breathtaking as he and his team begin their seemingly impossible mission to hunt down an international terrorist (Harris). The stunts inch closer and closer to absolute brilliance if one compares it with the film's predecessors. Ghost Protocol was rad, and now I can even take the risk of saying that Rogue Nation is even more.

    The film doesn't lose sight and is FAITHFUL to the franchise's theme. It treads into unexplored territory leaving the audience in awe and wonder. The sequences are stunningly shot by Robert Elswit who also gifted us Nightcrawler (2014) few months ago. With CRISP writing at parts, the story is fairly believable. But of course, there are holes which if detected, should be ignored for a good viewing, hoping you are not one of the v-bloggers who take pride in videos like "10 Mistakes About Rogue Nation In 100 Seconds."

    The antagonist starts smart, but ends up like a rabbit, afraid of its hunters. Plus, there is an air of romance that touches the plot for some time, but thankfully flows away, preventing the whole drama from falling.

    Cruise is terrific; the guy can run and boy, with elegance. I am sure we will never get bored of him. Renner sports a grim look throughout as he is more like a bureaucrat in this installment. It was fun watching Ferguson and Pegg. Overall, they are all well-directed.

    Films in the Mission: Impossible franchise are erroneously considered and compared with other action films by junkies, giving rise to polarizing reviews citing mindlessness and plot holes. It is only when one accepts M: I films as pure spy-fi is its real magnitude perceived. The fifth installment is thus a better concoction that has high entertainment quotient.

    BOTTOM LINE: Rogue Nation has car and bike chases, masks, saxorifles, and glass cages. What more can you ask for? Mr. McQuarrie, have a beer, will you?

    VERDICT: 7 stars out of 10. Recommended.

    Can be watched with a typical Indian family? YES

    Impossibly possible in bits and pieces...

    Nation may rogue...humanity may rogue..love may rogue..smiles may rogue..tears may rogue but tom cruise is as charming,lovable,dashing and honest to his 'ethan hunt' as ever...this mission has again kicked off making some 'impossibles' possible... one, age is just a number,it is impossible for a 52 year to do gravity defying, bike chase and underwater stunts so smoothly and convincingly....two,it is impossible that a hollywood commercial pot bolier goes even without any 'sealed lips sequence' let alone the physical intimacy...three,it is impossible that a girl gets a meetier character in otherwise a male centric espionage movie....four, it is impossible that background score alone can lift a movie to a decent level...however,with these thumbs up,there are few thumb downs as well... Barring couple of high octane action sequences,it offers nothing novel...story also gets flat...at times,while watching movie,it just gets impossible to stop yawning...u may watch it if u r TC fan otherwise HBO pe to aa hi jayegi...
