Mission Impossible – Rogue Nation | Review

13 hours ago | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

This Time, It’s Rogue: Cruise Continues Singing It Forever Just Because

Arriving nearly four years after the highly celebrated and significantly lauded fourth Mission Impossible installment, 2011’s Brad Bird directed Ghost Protocol, Tom Cruise and company are back, perhaps nervously expecting to pale in comparison to what remains a difficult act to follow. Though an element of surprise is lacking, it’s safe to say Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation is an energetic action comedy manufactured with the utmost attention to detail in its remarkable action sequences. Helmed by favored Tom Cruise scribe Christopher McQuarrie (who wrote Valkyrie, Edge of Tomorrow, directed Jack Reacher, and did uncredited revisions on the last Mi film), the whole endeavor feels like a snug outfit for its headlining celebrity.

Considering he first donned the Ethan Hunt persona almost twenty years ago in Brian De Palma’s 1996 outing, he remains an impressive bundle of action star energy, »

'Mission: Impossible 5' Review: Better Than Bond and Bourne?

15 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation has crisp action and pacing, but suffers from a slightly nonsensical plot. It's likely that the script was written around the action pieces. While any movie this fantastic needs suspension of disbelief, there's a point in the story where everything could have been wrapped up neatly. But then you'd have a seventy-minute film without the explosive climax. Tom Cruise, who hasn't aged in a decade, will thrill audiences with his death defying stunts. Hanging from airplanes, pummeling Euro baddies bare chested, hurtling through Morocco on motorcycles; this latest installment is a clear testament to Cruise's viability as an action star.

Rogue Nation begins with the Imf disbanded by congress. A snarky CIA director (Alec Baldwin) has had enough of Ethan Hunt's (Cruise) destructive tactics. While Brandt (Jeremy Renner) deals with government bureaucracy, Hunt is captured by a diabolical organization called The Syndicate. He escapes death »

Exclusive: Interview With Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation Director Chris McQuarrie

17 hours ago | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

McQuarrie had previously worked with Mi star Tom Cruise on Jack Reacher (which he wrote and directed) and co-wrote the screenplays for Bryan Singer's Valkyrie and the sci-fi hit Edge of Tomorrow. With Rogue Nation, McQuarrie follow in the footsteps of previous directors Brian DePalma, John Woo, J.J. Abrams and Brad Bird. With the Imf now disbanded and Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) out in the cold, a new threat -- called the Syndicate -- soon emerges. The Syndicate is a network of highly skilled operatives who are dedicated to establishing a new world order via an escalating series of terrorist attacks. Faced with what may be the most impossible mission yet, Ethan gathers his team and joins forces with Ilsa Faust (Rebecca Ferguson), a disavowed British agent who may or may not be a member of this deadly rogue nation.

Tom Cruise goes rogue in Mission Impossible 5

29 July 2015 8:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Ethan Hunt, aka Tom Cruise, is back for the fifth instalment of the Mission Impossible franchise with ‘Rogue Nation’ – a high-octane adventure that sees the Impossible Mission Force pitted against their most nefarious enemy to date.

Starting life back in 1966 as a hit Us TV show, Mission Impossible has grown into a multi-million dollar franchise spawning a series of hit, slick, action movies.

This next chapter in the series sees Tom Cruise reprise his role as daredevil spy Ethan Hunt, – and his team that includes computer whizz Benji played by Simon Pegg, Jeremy Renner as special agent Brandt and Ving Rhames as hacker Luther – pitted against ‘The Syndicate’; an anti-imf agency headed up by the menacing Solomon Lane, played by Sean Harris.

Director Christopher McQuarrie, who takes over from Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol (2011) helmer Brad Bird, is now in the driving seat. Talking about the challenges of directing the film, »

Review: 'Mission Impossible Rogue Nation'

28 July 2015 6:02 AM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★☆☆☆ Tom Cruise reprises his role as spy Ethan Hunt in Rogue Nation (2015), the fifth instalment of the Mission: Impossible franchise, this time helmed by screenwriter-turned-director Christopher McQuarrie. While it may deliver on the expected hi-octane thrills and spills with a slew of outrageous stunts, it also delivers a ham-fisted third act and the predictable, woolly plotting will make audiences yearn for the days when the Impossible Mission Force were in the safe hands of Brian De Palma. McQuarrie previously worked with Cruise on several projects, including the abysmal Valkyrie, the more enjoyable Edge of Tomorrow and Jack Reacher, a bland effort to reignite interest in Lee Child's eponymous hero.

‘Mission: Impossible’ – Breaking Christopher McQuarrie out of Director’s Jail

27 July 2015 1:00 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

This Friday, Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation will be released. It’s the fifth film in the iconic franchise, but sadly stands as only the third film of its director Christopher McQuarrie in 15 years since he got behind the camera. That’s a real shame, because Christopher McQuarrie is Hollywood’s best-kept secret when he really should be their pride and joy.

Christopher McQuarrie was so damn hot in the mid-90s. He wrote the script for the classic The Usual Suspects and came home with an Oscar. He ended up using that clout to get his feature-directing debut made with the criminally underrated The Way of the Gun, released in 2000. The film failed both critically and commercially – a domestic gross of $6 million, and a worldwide gross of only $13 million against a $21 million budget – and McQuarrie went from insider to outcast in Hollywood.

Fast forward eight years and McQuarrie had only »

White Queen star Ferguson makes her franchise debut in Rogue Nation as Ilsa Faust, an intelligence operative who partners with Ethan Hunt (Cruise).

Faced with a worldwide conspiracy organised by the shadowy Syndicate and the CIA seeking him for arrest, Hunt has to partner with his old Impossible Missions Force team for what could be their final mission.

Back to aid Ethan Hunt are his Imf cohorts Luther Stickell (Ving Rhames), Benji Dunn (Simon Pegg) and William Brandt (Jeremy Renner).

The fifth Mission: Impossible movie also reunites Cruise with writer-director Christopher McQuarrie, with whom he previously worked on Valkyrie and Jack Reacher.

36 major blockbusters and why they never got made

11 June 2015 6:53 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

We look at the films that slipped through Hollywood's net, from biblical epics to a time travelling Gladiator sequel...

This article contains a spoiler for Gladiator

If you're one of those frustrated over the quality of many of the blockbusters that make it to the inside of a multiplex, then ponder the following. For each of these were supposed to be major projects, that for one reason or another, stalled on their way to the big screen. Some still may make it. But for many others, the journey is over. Here are the big blockbusters that never were...

1. Airframe

The late Michael Crichton scored another residential on the bestseller list with his impressive thriller, Airframe. It was published in 1996, just after films of Crichton works such as Jurassic Park, Rising Sun, Disclosure and the immortal Congo had proven to be hits of various sizes.

Tom Cruise And Ed Zwick Reteam For 'Jack Reacher' Sequel

19 May 2015 9:47 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

The last we heard anything about sequel to the modestly performing "Jack Reacher" was that Paramount had put the movie on the "fast track." That was in 2013. But it seems engines are revving for the vigilante drifter to get back on the big screen, and the project now has a director. Deadline reports that the movie will mark the reunion between "The Last Samurai" director Ed Zwick and that film's star, Tom Cruise. It's interesting to note that Christopher McQuarrie—who wrote and adapted the first film, and has been Cruise's go-to writer for the past little while (also penning "Valkyrie" and "Edge Of Tomorrow") — doesn't appear to be involved. Could those rumors of rewrites and possible problems about the ending of "Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation" have had some merit? The filmmaker denied it but it does make one wonder. At any rate, Richard Wenk ("The Equalizer") penned the the first draft of the. »

13 British comedy stars lured to Hollywood in the 1990s

20 April 2015 10:52 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Hollywood went hunting for lots of British comedy talent in the 1990s - and lured the likes of Hugh Laurie, Stephen Fry and Emma Thompson...

For some reason, Hollywood fell in love with British actors again in the 1990s. Sparked by Alan Rickman's turn as Hans Gruber in Die Hard at the back end of the 1980s, many movie villains were either Brits, or in the case of Cliffhanger, John Lithgow taking on the mannerisms of a British antagonist.

Yet in particular, Hollywood went recruiting British comedy talent, with faces then mainly - but not exclusively - known for their small screen work getting roles of various sizes in Hollywood productions. Here are some who racked up the air miles - starting with the man who arguably became one of the most successful...
