Movie review: Mission Impossible Rogue Nation

My heart stopped about twice in this movie. 

The plot? Ethan Hunt needs to save the world from some terrorist organization that's bent
on chaos and destruction. Who's seen that one before? *raises hand* (And I may or may not have written a book like that... hmmm. Oops.) 

So while I wasn't overly thrilled with the overall plot, it was the execution that made this movie so totally awesome. The characters were more witty and interesting than most action movies, the stunts were utterly amazing and THE BETRAYALS! Oh, it was too good. You never really knew who was on who's side or what they were fighting for, and they all seemed to switch sides once or twice (and I lost count in one character's case). 

My favourite part of the movie (besides the stunts, which did I mention were amazing?) was the conflict between Ethan and the bad guy. They kept outsmarting each other to the point where as soon as I thought I had everything figured out it all changed again. Just when you think it's all over, when people are strapped to a bomb or when someone else is about to be shot point-blank, the movie yells "HA!" and rips the rug out from underneath you. 

Like all movies, there were a few downsides. First of all, Ethan is dead. He pretty much dies three times in the space of half an hour and he gets up and walks away. He. Is. Dead. I also didn't think it was as funny as the last movie, which I was really sad about. There were also one or two slow parts (and Hawkeye didn't get an action scene! That is a crime, people!!) but it didn't negatively impact the movie too much. 

Overall, this movie rocked. Why are you still here? Go see the movie, my jabberwockies!

    1. If you get the chance, you should so see it. They are such entertaining movies. The fourth one was really really (really!!!) good as well.
