A cryptic message from Bond's past, sends him on a trail to uncover a sinister organization. While M battles political forces to keep the Secret Service alive, Bond peels back the layers of deceit to reveal the terrible truth behind S.P.E.C.T.R.E.
Armed with a license to kill, Secret Agent James Bond sets out on his first mission as 007, and must defeat a private banker to terrorists in a high stakes game of poker at Casino Royale, Montenegro, but things are not what they seem.
CIA chief Hunley (Baldwin) convinces a Senate committee to disband the IMF (Impossible Mission Force), of which Ethan Hunt (Cruise) is a key member. Hunley argues that the IMF is too reckless. Now on his own, Hunt goes after a shadowy and deadly rogue organization called the Syndicate.
Although most of the "Mission: Impossible" films have avoided references to their predecessors in the series, this one either directly or indirectly references all four of them (aside from each of Ethan's IMF team members having been in at least one earlier film). When Hunley and Brandt are speaking to a U.S. Senate subcommittee, Hunley mentions the IMF's break-in at the C.I.A.'s Langley headquarters Mission: Impossible (1996) as well as the destruction of the Kremlin from Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol (2011). In the following scene, where Ethan is prepped for what appears to be a grisly torture, his rescuer Ilsa palms a handcuff key attached to a rabbit's foot, an apparent reference to the MacGuffin in Mission: Impossible III (2006), which was never shown on-screen, but referred to as the Rabbit's Foot. Additionally, the motorcycle chase in this film is reminiscent of the one in Mission: Impossible II (2000). Furthermore, the duplication of the thumb drive by Benji and subsequent theft of it by Ilsa is reminiscent of the scene in Mission: Impossible when Ethan steals the NOC list from Langley. Finally, a major scene in the film's third act is set inside a London train station. The first movie included a long scene filmed at London's Liverpool Street Station. Additionally, Hunley mentions during the Senate hearing, that the I.M.F. is currently without a Secretary, referencing the events of Ghost Protocol, where the Secretary (Tom Wilkinson) was killed when Russian security forces opened fire on his car, while looking for Hunt.

Me and a friend again had the opportunity to see an early screening of the movie 'Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation'. One word. Excellent. Everything about that movie was just perfect! It had the right amount of every element that would make a movie simply brilliant! This sequel for me, was definitely the best Mission movie yet. And at the same time it recalls so many details from the first mission impossible movie. And most of all the action. WOW. Every action scene in this movie was breath taking and there will be moments when you would just want to get up and start clapping. They did a good amount of the stunts without CGI and that will make you appreciate the action even more. Oh and if you thought that plane scene in the trailer was crazy, then you are in for a treat! When it comes to acting, Tom Cruise easily convinces us that he is a top notch agent of IMF(Impossible Mission Force). This time every member of the team has something to give in comparison to Ghost Protocol. Kudos to Simon Pegg for his impeccable timing for humor. And the villain was perfect! They made the villain perfect for the IMF and the ending of this movie is so satisfying. One of the few movies where the ending just pleases you so much. On the whole, Don't miss this movie!! Seriously.. Don't! It is a movie mean't to be watched by everyone!
