So how impossible can Ethan Hunt’s new mission be if Captain America and James Bond have the same one...? I mean sure, Shakespeare said there’s nothing new under the sun, but I doubt that as many plays were being written back then as movies are being produced today. And even beyond the evil organization plot, 2015 is chock full of spy movies in GENERAL! Kingsman The Secret Service, Spy, The Man from UNCLE, Spectre and Mission Impossible Rogue Nation. Then there’s the title, which is echoed in the X-Men Days of Future Past Rogue Cut as well as the upcoming Star Wars spin-off Rogue One. In fact, Paramount had to ask Disney not to discuss Rogue One too much until their movie was released. So...how IS Mission Impossible Rogue Nation supposed to stand out from the crowd? STUNTS! And not just any stunts, but REAL stunts performed by a REAL movie star! That publicity tactic worked pretty well for Mission Impossible Ghost Protocol, so now with this fifth film they’ve pretty much based the entire ad campaign around Tom Cruise actually strapping himself to the outside of an airplane that actually took off and flew around a bit. Now for those of you who are like “uh, and why couldn’t you use a greenscreen? I mean, it’s not like Cruise has blond hair...” - well, then how about the talent involved? Cruise reteams with his Jack Reacher writer-director here, Christopher McQuarrie, and that movie was surprisingly good. Imagine what they can do with a much bigger budget... Not to mention Alec Baldwin joins the party, while Ving Rhames and Simon Pegg return. And sure, Pegg said blockbuster movies were infantile, but he wasn’t talking about THIS movie..! So, is Mission Impossible Rogue Nation one of the better Tom Cruise movies? Because come on, is there really such a thing as a BAD Tom Cruise movie...?
