“Your mission, should you choose to accept it…” is to see the latest installment in the ‘Mission: Impossible’ franchise, code-named ‘Rogue Nation’.

Tom Cruise returns to reprise his role as Ethan Hunt for the fifth film in the franchise, this time after the events of ‘Ghost Protocol’, the government has decided to shut down the IMF, leaving Ethan to find a guy that may have connections to the Syndicate.

‘Rogue Nation’ has a lot going for it; it has fantastic action sequences, sometimes different to most recent action films, some very good acting performances, especially praises to Tom Cruise – not only delivering a good performance, but his stunt work is unbelievable.

Also, the score is also very good, even offering up classical scores.

My only problem is that at times the film does have slow moments and at times the narrative can be a little too confusing, but for the most part the story is very solid.

‘Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation’ is a solid follow-up after the brilliant ‘Ghost Protocol’, with some fantastic action, a good story and some fine acting.
