Jeremy Renner
Simon Pegg
Rebecca Ferguson
Ving Rhames
Sean Harris
Alec Baldwin

Directed by Christopher McQuarrie

Mission Impossible 5: Gadgets Galore or better known as Rogue Nation is the fifth and not the final installment in the Mission Impossible series and it can arguably stand its ground as one of the best in the franchise.

You will accept this fact 60 minutes into the movie, get ready to be marveled as Tom Cruise playing Ethan Hunt delivers one of his and will be best performance yet. He has officially stamped himself as an action hero and he delivered nice stunts and great acting as usual to cement the point.

J. J. Abrams again is producing this film and Christopher McQuarrie is in the director's sit. This will be McQuarrie's second movie with Cruise as the lead action hero, the first being Jack Reacher in 2012.

Cruise has not delivered an exceptional movie nor box office hit in a while. His movie delivery in Jack Reacher (2012) and Oblivion (2013)have become questionable. Although Jack Reacher (2012)delivered in the box office it and Oblivion (2013)were not so great a script. Edge of Tomorrow (2014) on the other hand was a wonderful movie, except it was not a box office hit this made me keen to see Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation. This movie is exceptional and it is guaranteed to be a box office sensation in the months to come.

The movie didn't digress from the regular Mission Impossible tale. A lot of running and shooting, some needless stunts, espionage and excellent cinematography.

Ethan Hunt is after the syndicate, but this time the bad guys get a jump on our agent of the IMF and instead of killing him, (which is the most reasonable thing to do) they decided to keep him for questioning.

Put two and two together he broke free, but the IMF has been dissolved by CIA director Alan Hunley (Alec Baldwin) by the time Ethan broke free and Hunley has marked Ethan as most wanted deploying his tactical team to hunt him down. Now Ethan is on the run from the US government, with help from his former mate, IMF agent William Brandt (Jeremy Renner).
Brandt does all he can even using former agent Luther Stickell (Ving Rhames) to help him find Ethan and keep Hunley off his tail.

Ethan recruits Benji Dunn (Simon Pegg) to help chase down the syndicate leader, and the whole team (Ethan, Benji, Luther and Brandt) reunites and the mission starts.

For me other than Cruise, Simon Pegg delivered a wonderful performance to make this movie a most watch the moments the moment you get the time, or better still... make time.
