Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation (2015)
Director - Christopher McQuarrie
Tom Cruise saves the world yet again. This time around Sean Harris is the big bad heading up some shadow organisation that only the Cruiser knows about. MIRN (as no one called it) follows the same template as the rest of the series, having the Cruiser hunted not only by the baddies but by his own people too. Same old, same old. That said McQuarrie handles the action with aplomb, Simon Pegg is funny and the usual 'bit of skirt' for Cruise to rub up against (Rebecca Ferguson), is actually more than his equal and possibly the best thing about the film. Five films in and it still feels like there's life in the old dog yet. Perfect Saturday night flick.
