Ethan and his 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 Impossible Missions Force (IMF).

Dove Review

“Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation” delivers what most fans of the old TV series and the modern movies would expect: a few masks hiding true identities, chase scenes (featuring both running humans and car chases), a character who is not clearly good or evil, and instead of a self-destructing audio tape, a self-destructing vinyl record. The opening sequence, in which Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) jumps onto a plane that is taking off, is pretty spectacular and looks remarkably realistic.

The plot features a Syndicate that must be stopped, and Ethan Hunt and his team (Jeremy Renner, Simon Pegg, and Ving Rhames) are the guys to get it done. The Syndicate plans at least two major assassinations. However, the mysterious and beautiful Ilsa Faust (Rebecca Ferguson) seems to be on Ethan’s team one moment and on the Syndicate’s side the next. To which side does she truly belong?

This action-packed thriller features an energetic motorcycle chase, an assassination attempt at the opera, and a lot of intrigue. Unfortunately, it also features a strong use of profanity, not to mention too much violence, to be considered a family-friendly film. Therefore, unfortunately, we cannot award it our Dove “Family-Approved” Seal.
