Official Synopsis: Ethan and team take on their most impossible mission yet, eradicating the Syndicate – an International rogue organization as highly skilled as they are, committed to destroying the IMF.

Review Summary: The Mission: Impossible franchise continues to prove that it’s one of the best in existence with Rogue Nation, a blast of suspense and intrigue, a great mashup of the best of the original and Ghost Protocol. At this point, it’s redundant to say Cruise is excellent here, but he is! His commitment to these films is immensely commendable. Rebecca Ferguson almost steals the whole film with her portrayal of a stunning agent who has shady loyalties. The team element that made Ghost Protocol so fun is retained here, which keeps the pace fairly fast. The final act loses a bit of steam, but the ride is well worth it.
