You have to admire Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) and his highly-trained, utterly fearless Impossible Missions Force (IMF) team – no matter how impossible the mission might be, they will take it on without a second thought (but not it must be noted without raised eyebrows and jocular quip or two).
They’re back at their taking-it-to-the-baddies best once again in Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation, hanging off airplanes that are taking off, swimming through an insanely large amount of water without oxygen tanks – breathing? Pfft! It’s for espionage rank amateurs! – and almost dying, and then, naturally enough, getting into high end very fast car … and driving.
As you do.
It’s all in a day’s work for the IMF’s best and brightest, who are battling a shadowy organisation called The Syndicate who means to bring them down, way, way, wiped from existence, down.
Not very nice people at all, really.
So naturally Ethan and the gang fight back, and fight back hard as only they can, and we, dear gloriously over the top espionage-loving viewers of four Mission:Impossible films before this, are the lucky recipients.
All we need to do now is buy some popcorn, find the code to open the plane door ahead of time (not, I repeat, not during take-off; so many OH&S issues … so, SO MANY), and oh yes, fasten our seatbelts before backing at high speed into a canal.
Yep, that happens too.
Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation opens in USA on 31 July 2015 and Australia on 6 August.
