Benz Eye View: Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation

Pros:

There is a great amount of action here.  Not only is it well done, but entertaining enough for any action enthusiasts.

There is also a great amount of suspense.  You are not exactly sure if Ethan Hunt is going to die/fail in many situations, especially when he screws up on a plan (although, this can be ruined if you watched the trailer, and memorized it).

…That is about it.

Cons:

The story/plot is pretty basic.  The premise may be interesting, but not enough to be completely engaging or pleasing to anyone.  You may end up wishing for the movie to move along to the next action scene.

I argue that the story/plot in this movie is not as engaging as the last movie, because there are certain moments where I got bored, and found it to be predictable.

…That is about it.

Overall:

The Mission: Impossible movies are great action flicks that everyone can enjoy (although, Mission: Impossible II is argued to be the worst one), and this next movie is no exception.  It delivers on its action sequences without shying away the movies’ style.  However, it does not do anything new like the last one, so this movie’s only memorable trait is its action/spy sequences.  I wish I can say more about this movie, but it does not give me much to talk about.  It is a good movie, and that is all.  If you are looking to be entertained with some action and spy business, this is for you.  If you are looking for a deep and compelling story, look elsewhere, because this movie does not deliver much on that department.

7.8/10
