Fifth about The Seventh

Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation

Mission Impossible Rogue NationMission: Impossible – Rogue Nation: Christopher McQuarrie presents a relentlessly summer-ish film: the action sequences are engaging, the plot is convoluted enough and the gallery of duplicitous characters, rather welcome. The cast is all solid, but Rebecca Ferguson is a real find, as is Sean Harris. Respecting the original source matters (at the risk of becoming generic; of course, it assumes the original material was appreciated in the first place), and McQuarrie creates a few set-pieces which are appropriate (even if the outlandish action scenes, fun as they are, depart somewhat from the series); it also gets extra points for the opening credits. Robert Elswit’s camerawork is elegant, and the numerous locations are all well-used.
