Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation

mission-impossible-rogue-nation-motorcycle-explosion_1920.0-e1433808025568I watched the fifth Mission Impossible movie, Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, this weekend. It was a good movie, I’d give it a B. It does suffer from some dicey story moments where things happen that feel fake but need to be there to keep the story moving — but overall this wasn’t too bad.

I’d rate the Mission Impossible movies best to worst:

  • Mission Impossible (1996)
  • Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol (2011)
  • Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation (2015)
  • Mission: Impossible III (2006)
  • Mission: Impossible II (2000)

It seems like the structure of these movies is to come up with an overall story and hang this off of three or four big action scenes. Which for Rogue Nation and it’s $680 million + box office seems to be working well.
