MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE - ROGUE NATION [2015]

Usually by the fifth film in a franchise movie-goers are groaning "another one?" but due to being an immensely entertaining series, director Christopher McQuarrie's Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation is more than welcome.
This time around, while being hunted down by the CIA, Ethan & co. are determined to take down an international crime orginization, known as The Syndicate (olde tyme TV series fans will be giggling with glee).
Little Man Cruise proves he's a believable action star once again, while the rest of the cast back him up quite nicely, especially Rebecca Ferguson as an ass-kicking agent who may or may not be a friend.  Unfortunately Sean Harris (who I quite like) isn't given a whole lot to chew on as the villain and that hurts the threat of danger a bit.
There's enough going on here that proves it's got at least one more good film to go before it tires itself out.
