Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation is Tom Cruise's fifth Mission: Impossible adventure as Ethan Hunt. It's built on the same foundation as the four preceding films, meaning there's lots of thrilling action, death-defying stunt work, and violence (stabbing, shooting, explosions, hand-to-hand combat), though much of it is stylized and choreographed, and it's relatively bloodless. Swearing is infrequent, though "s--t" is used, and there's not much in the way of sexual content (just flirting) or drinking/drugs (a bit of social drinking by adults). Teamwork and loyalty are running themes of the series.
Make no mistake, ROGUE NATION is clearly part of the Mission: Impossible franchise -- by which we mean it checks off all the usual boxes: high-octane action sequences (one in which Hunt danges from the side of a plane as it takes off is pretty gnarly), glamorous locales (Morocco and Belarus), comedic banter between Hunt and Benji (Pegg), and super-complicated missions that require death-defying entrances with Hunt as the centerpiece.
Although it may be predictable, it's also undeniably entertaining -- and genuinely thrilling. Yes, the geopolitics are scrambled and confusing, and the villains are non-specific and generic. But by the time you hear the strains of that world-famous theme song, you'll be salivating like a Pavlovian dog. Resist all you want, but you'll be hard pressed not to succumb to MI: RogueNation's charms from the first scene.
