What’s NEW: Subtle comedy scenes that lift off your mood
Story: Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) & his company decide to take down the ruthless Solomon Lane in the fifth part of the Mission Impossible series. His prime motive is to capture the leader of the undercover rogue terrorist agency ‘Syndicate’. The disavowed IMF team finally reunites to avert the catastrophic terrorist attacks by Syndicate. Being an international fugitive, Ethan Hunt is pursued by Alan Hunley (Alec Baldwin) head of the CIA in the entire movie. The quest ends when Alan comes to know the secret behind the existence of Syndicate. The story unfolds itself in the second half of the movie.
Performances: Tom Cruise as the heart and soul of this iconic franchise does justice with his role. His impressive agile moves are awe-inspiring. Be it the breakneck vehicle chasing or the fighting scenes.
Jeremy Renner has limited but vital role to play in this movie. His witty one liners during the movie are expected yet quite funny. He steals the show in the second half of the movie with his action and brilliant performance.
Ving Rhames & Simon Pegg’s performances are as good as their performances in the earlier Mission Impossible flicks. Simon Pegg’s unique acting style in this action packed film adds bit of laugh & lot of techy stuffs.
Rebecca Ferguson’s (Lisa Faust) role is magnificent. She is a fierce agent & furious driver, whose on-screen presence is commendable.
However Sean Harris (Solomon Lane)’s role & performance fails to connect to the audience. His voice in not audible enough & audience just have to understand his character based on context of the movie. As a villain, his role is not at all threatening or intimidating to spread menace.
Direction: The writer-cum-director Christopher McQuarrie has given excellent direction. The direction is top class & the movie has a very crisp & polished look likewise the other Mission Impossible movies. Some scenes are slightly prolonged but his direction guarantees to keep you more than ‘just entertained’. The fighting scenes & VFX are quite brilliant as compared to the earlier Mission Impossible movies.
Combo-On-Offer: Action + Older yet refreshing look of Tom Cruise + bit of humor
Verdict: We give the movie Claps as inspite of being fifth movie of Mission Impossible series, it still has maintained the charisma & excitement.
