Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation

Tom Cruise continues to push that gigantic boulder up the hill. I’m not sure that he’s ever truly lost his grip and faltered — at least not so that he’s felt it roll back on him.

Tom Cruise continues to push that gigantic boulder up the hill. I’m not sure that he’s ever truly lost his grip and faltered — at least not so that he’s felt it roll back on him. Throughout his career, he’s occasionally had to lock himself into place to hold steady, but that’s the worst he’s endured during an impossible run. And now he’s back, with support from Christopher McQuarrie (his writing and/or directing collaborator from Valkyrie, Jack Reacher and Edge of Tomorrow) and in the comfortable skin of his franchise character Ethan Hunt for Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation fighting an international team of spies intent on destroying his organization. (Opens wide Friday) (PG-13) Not screened in time for review
