Tom Cruise is back as Ethan Hunt, facing his most blisteringly impossible mission yet, in “Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation,” the fifth installment in the constantly accelerating action-thriller series.
Agents Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise), Benji (Simon Pegg) and William Brandt (Jeremy Renner) along with British agent Ilsa Faust (Rebecca Ferguson) are on a mission to bring down a network of highly skilled operatives known as the Syndicate, an international criminal consortium.
Syndicate’s mission is to establish new world order of dictatorship and Ethan Hunt’s last mission is to stop them from doing so.
Their Mission: Take down the SYNDICATE. With the IMF disbanded, and Ethan out in the cold, the team now faces off against a network of highly skilled special agents, the Syndicate. These highly trained operatives are hellbent on creating a new world order through an escalating series of terrorist attacks. Ethan gathers his team and joins forces with disavowed British agent Ilsa Faust, who may or may not be a member of this rogue nation, as the group faces their most impossible mission yet.
The deep-cover espionage agency known as the IMF has been under fire, but now it faces total disbandment, even as the most harrowing threat yet known to the free world lies in the shadows. That threat is The Syndicate, an impenetrable, exquisitely-trained group of renegade spies who have left behind their countries for an agenda all their own – an agenda intent on destabilizing the very foundations of civilization.
The Syndicate has long been rumored to be just a wild-eyed myth among spies. But Ethan Hunt has just uncovered the unwelcome reality that this rogue nation is not only real but a ticking time bomb about to detonate worldwide if he doesn’t act. The CIA doesn’t buy it. His own team is under threat. Yet, Ethan will never turn his back on the highest stakes.
Other actors playing pivotal roles in this thriller are Alec Baldwin, Ving Rhames, Sean Harris, and America Olivo.
Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation is definitely one of the best spy movie in recent times, with its breathtaking opening sequence, the motorcycle chase in Morocco and the climax when Ethan infiltrates the submerged data center in Morocco are just too electrifying.
