The fifth installment in this franchise is the best one yet, with a compelling plot, a Bond-esque super villain, and the intense action set pieces that Cruise does better than anyone.
I've really enjoyed this franchise so far (other than one less than stellar film) and damn, this film carries everything on. Honestly, one of the main reasons I love the franchise is probably because they are so similar to the 007 franchise. Instead, these are a bit more light with jokes and, obviously, American. Except they spend some time in the UK this time.
Anyway, yea, about this specific film. Great action. I mean look at this photo because it was awesome. Specifically though, the car/motorcycle race in here is just so engaging and fun. I've got to say, Tom Cruise might be crazy, but he is a great action star.
A franchise that gets better with each installment, this was great, the set pieces were brilliant, and the team know exactly what works now, The Cruiser for me is the Postman, he always delivers!!! Thoroughly enjoyed this
Rogue Nation is a thrill ride...until about two-thirds in. After that, you get a rather weak ending. The movie keeps up the pace and style of the two latest instalments of this franchise but fails to retain the momentum. The acting was good...especially Rebecca Ferguson. Luckily she is slated to return in the next one.
Rogue Nation is so far, the weakest since number two, but it's still worth a watch.
Slider..sniff sniff...you stink
"Looks like the mission....just got impossible." - Quote by Ben Stiller.
The story in Rogue Nation is about Ethan Hunt and his team face their biggest and most dangerous threat yet (Would you believe it) The Syndicate, an international rogue group that are as skilled as they are deadly - and their number one goal is to eliminate the IMF.
Before I talk about Rogue Nation here is all my thoughts on the previous Mission Impossible movies. The first movie in my opinion was decent and a lot of hard work went into that film, I mean you look at the behind the scenes of the first movie people really worked they ass of on that movie and to me it paid off nicely. I give the first movie a strong 3/5 star's.
Mission Impossible 2 was pretty terrible to be honest. I felt like I was watching a different movie because to me I didn't feel like the first movie or even a Mission Impossible movie. I'm giving Mission Impossible 2 a 2/5 star's.
Mission Impossible 3 really got things back on track after the messy MI 2. Philip Seymour Hoffman was a great villain and JJ. Abrams did a good job directing the action scenes and the whole movie. I'm giving the third one a 3½ / 5 star's.
Mission Impossible - Ghost Protocol was pretty good. The actions scenes and the characters are the highlight of the movie. My only problem with the movie is that the villain was a bit weak and wasn't really that menacing. Overall I'm giving Ghost Protocol movie a solid 4/5 star's.
And now for Rogue Nation and it was a very enjoyable movie and I liked it a little more than Ghost Protocol.
I was a bit worried but at the same time interesting on what Christopher McQuarrie will bring to a franchise like this, because this is the same guy who directed Jack Reacher and I though that movie was okay but nothing special. Brad Bird was originally suppose to direct this movie but dropped out because he wanted to direct Tomorrowland and then Christopher McQuarrie stepped in. After seeing the movie I'm so happy to say that Christopher McQuarrie did a great job directing this movie as he added a lot to this movie when it comes to action and it's characters. McQuarrie really gave the actions scenes a feeling of rush and the action never got stale after wards like some action movies do after awhile. Nicely done Christopher McQuarrie.
It's crazy how Tom Cruise is 50 years old and he's doing all of his own stunts for his fans and keep it real and not over use CGI. He was great in this movie like in everyone movie Tom Cruise was in. You can tell by his face that he's in the zone when he dose these stunts that could kill him or hurt him really bad. Tom Cruise nailed the humor, he nailed the action scenes and he nailed the role.
Many people and myself had no idea who Rebecca Ferguson was before Rogue Nation. She was in last years Hercules with Dwayne Johnson that nobody remembered and I already forgotten that movie already. Rebecca Ferguson was so good in this movie that she is going places after this because of how good she was. In this movie she was like the female Liam Neeson from Taken because it's the whole "I'm going to kill you in one blow" kind of character. Rebecca and Cruise worked together perfectly and she nailed the role of a strong female character.
Simon Pegg was great in this movie playing Benji. It's surprising that not a lot of people give him credit in this movie as his known best at comedy but he's also a great action actor star as well, he proved that in Ghost protocol, Rogue Nation and Hot Fuzz.
The rest of the cast like: Ving Rhames, Jeremy Renner and Alec Baldwin all did great in this movie.
The one thing that the Mission Impossible movies doesn't do very well is it's villain. Philip Seymour Hoffman was the only good villain in Mission Impossible series but the rest of villains have been weak and pretty forgettable. But the villain in Rogue Nation has a lot of motivation and he's the kind of villain that you understand where is coming from. Sean Harris dose a great performance as this chilling character but it wasn't an incredible villain but still better than the one we got in the other movies.
Now for the problems: The movie itself isn't flawless as these some scenes in the movie that the pacing dragged a little bit and when the characters have conversations about the gadgets and stuff it wasn't that interesting as Ghost Protocol did it better, because Ghost Protocol was a straight up action movie filled with humor and entertaining characters and when they have conversations about gadgets it was interesting and creative.
Overall Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation isn't only just a good action movie it's a good movie on it's own. The movie took elements from the first movie and Ghost Protocol and puts it together in this movie which made it a very entertaining movie.
I was a bit harsh on this one last time, and I have to say I enjoyed this film quite a lot more than 2015 me seemed to.
It’s solid all round and I thought the plot was pretty compelling so god knows what I was banging on about.
I also neglected to mention that I am deeply in love with Rebecca Ferguson but alas my somewhat downbeat review of Mission Impossible V has probably turned her off. Still Rebecca, if you’re reading, my wife says it’s ok.
Pulled out the Blu-ray to test my new setup. I really don't think I gave this movie proper credit when it came out. Its so so amazing. Not only are the action scenes exhilarating set pieces not ruined by green screen overkill, they're funny too. This series always gets that right, injecting humor into super serious badass action.
I think this was another situation where I couldn't judge the movie properly the first time around because the weight of the previous film. Ghost protes is one of my fave movies of all time. It's a tough aft to follow even if you follow it with one of the best movies of the year. It's a real WALL*E/Up situation.
Indeed this was the best movie of the series, Cruise deliver a very good Ethan with nice action sequences and chases. Pegg was a comedic genius of the film. Nice touches of comedy by everyone
Building over the previous instalment, Rogue Nation proposes a plot that involves a deep-secret organisation hidden in plain sight within the confines of the world-wide intelligence community. Of course, this isn't something new, at all (S.P.E.C.T.R.E. did all that back since the late 50's). The greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn't exist, and just like that The Syndicate goes to extreme lengths to cover its tracks, not too convincingly. I mean, The Syndicate has been operating with almost unlimited funding since 9/11, but has never been able to manage a true chaos environment to thrive in and keep the status-quo... and that's a complete failure of its mission statement, specially with that kind of budget. The real C.I.A. did better than that with just a a minimal fraction of that money in South America in the 60's and the Middle East in the early 80's. The action scenes are good enough, but none of them surpass the elegance and thrill of the Burj Khalifa sequence in Ghost Protocol (and that's sad, in my opinion). Sam Harris isn't as convincing as he needs to be as the main antagonist, and I did find his exposition scenes a little bit forced, and within the Hollywood cliché that the villain has to explain everything to us, mere mortals, instead of just just killing the hero. The Chinese investment in the film is felt and unwelcome, in my opinion, just like it happened to Marvel in Iron Man 3, trying to add Chinese characters and scenes (trust me, those 15 extra minutes of the Chinese plot in Iron Man 3 available only in the Asian version of the film are worthless). Overall, this is a fine movie, albeit of lesser quality than the previous one in terms of scope. IMF is always (except in the first 2 movies) in the verge of disappearing, and 4 of the movies have the characters in rogue mode, so it's a little bit disappointing to me that they are still beating that same dead horse once again. Please, it is that hard to portray a few flawless missions just as the TV series did in a hundred episodes with a bare-bottoms budget and good acting?.
Love the fact that this movie is partly set and was partly shot in Vienna, the capital of Austria. Besides that it's a nice action-flick bit nothing to spectacular.
Honestly, how do these movies keep getting better? They just keep finding crazier stuff to do and Tom Cruise does it. Rebecca Ferguson is a great addition, she is wonderful. Sean Harris plays a good villain, the second best one in the series behind Philip Seymour Hoffman. I really like that this feels much more like a continuation of the same story from Ghost Protocol unlike the first three which were almost completely separate stories. Very much looking forward to Fallout.
Have to say that motorcycle chase scene was pretty intense and the IMF team is awesome!
Great movie. I am just not a fan of the anti-climatic showdown between Ethan and the main villain in the end.
7,5/10 really enjoyable movie!
Right now it's the best spy movie franchise. Yes, better than JB and better than the other JB. Most of all, it's probably the only movie franchise that gets better with each movie.
Like in its previous installment, Rogue Nation has fast, gripping action while still maintaining its clever plot progression by utilizing gaps between scenes. But I would say Rogue Nation falls a bit slightly from its predecessor for its lack of proper characterization.
Unlike Ghost Protocol, Ethan (Tom Cruise) mostly work by himself here, letting only a little room for his dynamics with the other team members. Especially the new cast Luther (Ving Rhames) and the female protag Ilsa (Rebecca Ferguson). The relationship with the latter is especially important because by 3/4 of the movie the plot started to progress with Ethan orienting himself toward Ilsa and the other member of his teams.
While this is not necessary a bad thing, but the lack of development with other characters make the film a bit rushed toward making the impression that Ethan already bonded that much with someone he barely know. The villain Lane (Sean Harris) motivation and goal also remained unclear until the end of the movie, making Ethan's goal himself in the last half of the movie seems kinda fuzzy - which seems to explain why other characters have to mention it several times, we're being told a story here, not being shown.
I personally see this film as bridging Ghost Protocol to the next sequel, a trend that I seem to see from movies out in this year (Suicide Squad, Age of Apocalypse), as the ending seems to suggest. So while I'm not completely satisfied on how Rogue Nation turns out to be, I'm looking forward to the next MI installment.
<3 <3 Tom Cruise is so hawt #ShiftvW8
More in the same vein of the MI series. I must admit though as predictable as "spy" movie plots can be this one was different just enough to keep me in the movie until the end. I do like it when the plot or the characters fool me...not that easy but still happens too often. So, "thumbs up" for this one even for me who finds Tom Cruise' acting way too overrated. Just an opinion Tom, nothing personal. #ShiftvW8
I said in my review of The Man from U.N.C.L.E. (2015) that I'd have to watch and compare this with that and Spectre… Well, here we are.
The 2015 Mission: Impossible installment roundly beats out The Man from U.N.C.L.E. in writing, production, and on-screen chemistry. Rebecca Ferguson is no Alicia Vikander (LOVED her in Ex Machina), but the interactions between both leading men worked much, MUCH better in this film. It helps that Christopher McQuarrie let this film have a much calmer editing style—it's a hell of a lot easier to follow than Guy Ritchie's chaotic simul-action sequences with 2-5 camera views on screen at once.
I'm still undecided whether I like Spectre or M:I better for my top 2015 spy film, but I'm officially knocking U.N.C.L.E. out of the running. MI-6 and the IMF can duke it out.
(It's entirely possible that I'm being easier on this film because I lack a solid background with the franchise; I've seen very little M:I compared to U.N.C.L.E. But I don't think that's why I like this one so MUCH more.)
Podemos ser quiénes queramos... y hacer lo que queramos. Sólo es cuestión de lanzarse.
Lent this on Google Play Movies and did not regret it: great action flick! I really enjoyed the two hours with it and think that it is gripping and thrilling until the last scenes because one doesn't know who is crossing who.
I now have to give the previous installment of the series a shot, which I missed so far. Hopefully it is as good as this one!
I liked the previous film alot better. Bit disappointed about this one.
Bon film d'action à voir.
Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) & co. return for the fifth time in the Mission: Impossible franchise. This time the Impossible Missions Force (IMF) is disbanded at the request of the CIA, but as this happens in Washington D.C, Ethan Hunt is in London uncovering a plot to cock up the world. The IMF team must go off the record in order to stop the threat.
Let’s get one thing out of the way first: they have to stop using the stupid magic mask thing so much. It’s not central to the plot this time but all you are thinking for 120 minutes is ‘is that really X or is he just wearing a mask?’. Yes, disguise is an important part of the franchise, but this is just lazy storytelling.
As ever there are some spectacular and original action scenes. The film has been heavily marketed on the premise that Cruise does a lot of his own stunts, but it’s not just a sales pitch, it’s something that really helps the film. CGI is great when you don’t notice it, but so many films rely on it to completely render crucial scenes. Not so here. It’s an expensive route to take but a worthwhile one.
The supporting cast return, notably Ving Rhames & Simon Pegg. The close knit trio of friends proves to be a winning formula and the three actors strike up a convincing on-screen “we’ve been through lots of shit together” relationship.
As to ‘newcomers’ Sean Harris plays a suitably creepy villain, and Rebecca Ferguson gets to run with an interesting character caught between spy agencies. Something about her pierces through the camera; when paired with Tom Cruise it’s almost too much Hollywood-good-looks to handle (just kidding there’s never too much of that). Jeremy Renner (who was in the previous film) is caught in a sort of no-man’s land, not quite doing Cruise’s job, but not really given his own thing to do.
The plot is a thin frame upon which to hang some cool action scene ideas. This is a shame because it means that the stakes are low; 50% of what makes a good action film is some sort of emotional investment with what is happening. Sometimes this even develops as the scene unfolds, like with John Wick. Mission Impossible V makes no such attempt to get us interested.
With the exception of the pretty terrible Mission: Impossible II this has always been a solid if ultimately underwhelming series of films. Rogue Nation is no different; it’s an entertaining, well-made action film let down by a poorly thought-out, unsatisfying storyline.
It's been a while since I saw 2, 3. 1 and 4 are fresh in my memory. That said, this is probably the best of the series.
And once again, great, this franchise just don't let me down. The plot, the action, the acting, great. Since the beginning is fast, interesting, and fun, the whole movie is a fun ride. The bike chase was the best, and that new character very good, and the way they work her background too, really liked it.
por favor me diga como assistir filme neste site.tem que assinar?,e gratuito?.tem manual,se tiver aonde encontro
Great action and story on this one. The grand break-in was also a great reminder of the first episode.
i don´t think i ever felt the real speed effect like i did on this movie on the bike chasing scene...
Very good film. For me Tom Cruise like a signal that film will be interesting))
I enjoyed this movie quite a lot. I have to say though what I went because of the cast and not because it is Mission: Impossible. I love Simon Pegg and Jeremy Renner and I got what I wanted. :)
It has been entertaining, the action does not decay and the action scenes are well
Well, there can be no denying that Cruise still has it, in spades! Too many stunts to think of, however, with plane, car and bike sequences to name a few there is something for everyone in this movie.
Favorite scene has to be the bike chase; that was truly brilliant.
All this said, truthfully Tom and the team are looking older now, as we all are, and maybe this should be the last with the crew... if MI is to come back again perhaps it should be with a new team of players.
Continuing the tone of the successful Brad Bird entry, Ghost Protocol, there isn't a stunt that quite matches the Dubai sequence - hanging Cruise outside a plane whilst impressive is a short teaser at the start of the film rather than having a whole sequence built around it. But the film itself is a lot of fun and it is interesting to see how the films have gradually brought back the team dynamic after the terrible first sequel. The strongest new element is a focus on the new female character within the film and Rebecca Ferguson is great. The film does a good job at keeping her background a mystery and whilst the plot becomes increasingly convoluted, it moves along at such a pace that these elements are easy to forgive. Despite the fun action sequences, however, after four sequels, they have yet to top De Palma's tension-filled sequence break-in of the CIA from the original.
