Movie Review: Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation

Going into this review you should know two things about my opinions on Tom Cruise movies. First, I love The Last Samurai. Second I'm not a big fan of the Mission: Impossible movies. I might be one of the few that feels that way and it might tell you to exit out of this review right now. But if there's one thing I pride myself with on this blog its speaking my version of the truth. So there you have it. And yet Jenn somehow convinced me to go see the latest Mission: Impossible movie, Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation.

My problem with all of the Mission: Impossible movies is that they are forgettable. I've seen them all and yet besides the tropes that carry over from movie to movie the plots always feel forgettable. Now a week removed from seeing Rogue Nation I remember very little of it. And yet that really doesn't matter. Have you watched the trailer for the movie? It's utter insanity. Tom Cruise is on a giant plane that takes off and yet still manages to get in. And that's the first scene of the movie. The insanity meter continues to fill from there. 

Mission: Impossible continues not to be a series for me. I found Rogue Nation to be a very entertaining yet forgettable movie. I probably sound like a broken record but I like more substance in my movies nowadays and this just didn't have it. Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation is the antithesis of a summer action movie. If that's what you're in the mood for Rogue Nation isn't a bad use of two hours. But for me I just continue not to be a big fan of the Mission: Impossible franchise.
