Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation - Review

 If you don't want to read the review than watch it below.

Tom Cruise is back in the Mission Impossible franchise as Ethan Hunt, the top secret agent who works in the shadows for the IMF to stop terrorists around the world. Simon Pegg, Ving Rhames, and Jeremy Renner return to the best mission yet.

Rebecca Ferguson and Alec Baldwin add to the cast as a rogue British agent and a CIA spook with agenda's to either bring down or help Ethan in his impossible mission to topple a rogue nation of spies bent on molding the world to their satisfaction. Rebecca Ferguson is a great choice, probably the best female lead to set foot in the franchise, with acting chops and action stamina to keep up with Cruise. Alec Baldwin play's the typical CIA agent you hate but hope pulls through for the team in the end as the movie progresses.

Jeremy Renner's character seemed to be in the film as a buffer between Baldwin's CIA agent and Cruise's Ethan Hunt, always talking on the phone and trying to calm the waters between the two. Simon Pegg is the comic relief, but evolving into a better agent in this film and not so slap stick compared with the last mission outings. Ving Rhames is there mostly for moral support and as a franchise constant in the character of Luther, he's more pronounced in this film compared to the cameo in Ghost Protocol, but still more of a throw away character than the rest.

The action is top notch with a 52 year old Cruise still jumping off buildings and hanging onto planes; it looks as though the actor just won't age as he keeps coming back for more. It still amazes me that this actor still wants to do all of his stunts, whether it behind a wheel of a car or parachuting in for a landing.

If I had to rate this film out of 10 I'd say it sits firmly at an 8. Great action with a great storyline, some of the characters could have been thrown out for a tighter film but overall good. If Hollywood needs a diagram on how to make an exciting tent pole film, than this is the one to follow.

Home Depot Commercial.

Ever wanted to make a commercial for the hell of it, to see if you can come up with something better than what's on the television?  Well I did and actually took a few hours out of my day off to create a video for The Home Depot.  Check out the video here of what I've created and let me know what you think of it by commenting below the video on YouTube.

Ben Affleck is Batman

Funny how just last week I mentioned Christian Bale might be back as the Dark Knight for the new Batman/Superman film, but just a few hours ago it was announced that Ben Affleck will be Batman.  I definitely disagree with this choice.  I disagree for a couple reasons, first off is the fact that the last super hero outing that Affleck tackled was Daredevil, a movie which didn't do well at the box office nor did it  create enough positive buzz with comic book fans.  Second reason is, Affleck isn't the greatest actor in the world, and is dead wrong for the role, this is of course my opinion and I could be wrong when the actual film comes out in a couple years but this is how I feel at this moment.  Thirdly, Warner Brothers is loosing out big by not bringing back Bale as Batman.  He has a built in fan base for the role he's filled for six years now with an origin story already told.  Why not use him again?  You can see a link to a youtube video I made here for further thoughts on the topic.

Production So Far.

We have one more shooting day left before we wrap on Solitude for the summer.  I would just like to thank everyone who has made this film possible, most notably Ben Enke (director of photography), Darla Edin (visual effects makeup), Cheri Anderson (production design), and all of the actors who have participated so far.  You guys were great during production and I look forward to coming back in October and January to finish what we've started.  Click here for a new blooper video.  Stay tuned for more blogs in the near future.  You can follow us on Facebook by clicking here.
