Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation starring Tom Cruise

It’s impossible to miss Mission: Impossible

Maybe the biggest blockbuster of the summer, this Tom Cruise franchise stepped up its game once again for Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation.

The Mission: Impossible series revolves around special agent Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) who is part of the Impossible Missions Force (IMF), a spy agency operating under the United States government, and his insane missions he is posed with.

In Rogue Nation Hunt’s agency is compromised and it is up to Ethan and a select few of his friends to conduct their most important mission yet, one that their lives depend on.

Rogue Nation also takes its stunts up a level from past stunt renowned Mission: Impossible films. The previous installment of the series, Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, had Ethan Hunt scaling the Dubai tower. In Rogue Nation, Ethan Hunt actually hangs onto a plane mid flight for an intense airplane infiltration scene.

If you are looking for a movie with action packed fight scenes and stunts, then Rogue Nation is for you.
