Not sure what to expect from the movie, Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation, I was pleasantly surprised by the amazing action scenes, stunts and humor in the film, with the one liners bringing laughter to both myself and the audience. The story of the IMF Vs. the Syndicate, not only held my attention throughout the movie, but had me sitting at the edge of my seat watching as Ethan Hunt, played by Tom Cruise, and his team faced off against a network of highly skilled special agents known as the Syndicate. While the IMF has disbanded, Ethan and his team go undercover to join forces with disavowed British agent Ilsa Faust, played by Rebecca Ferguson, who may or may not be a member of this rogue nation. The group faces their most impossible mission yet – saving the world against these highly trained operatives, who are hell-bent on creating a new world order through an escalating series of terrorist attacks.
Watching the action movie, Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation, I couldn’t help but think about the fact that the star of the movie, Tom Cruise, does all of his own death defying stunts; hanging out of airplanes, holding his breath for five minutes and jumping out of glass windows, without the help of a stunt double.
In an interview with Jimmy Fallon, Tom Cruise said it took him eight takes to complete the incredible airplane stunt, where he is literally hanging on the door of an airplane, while it is thousands of feet in the air. I was watching the movie in complete awe of how the actor handled the stunts in the Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation when I realized as a mom I at times also manage the impossible – also known as the “mom possible.” Not only do I manage to be “mom possible”, but I make it fun, against the odds.
While Tom Cruise’s character, Ethan Hunt had to hide out in another country in order to get some alone time during Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation, I have it a bit easier, thanks to my ‘secret agents,’ also known as my children. Since my ‘secret agents,’ are in middle school and high school, they are a huge help around the house. Some of their chores include emptying and loading the dishwasher, helping me with the laundry, emptying the garbage and taking care of the family dog, allowing Mom to have some “me” time. The time saved with the help of my ‘secret agents,’ allowing “me” time is something I truly appreciate and cherish, making family time even more enjoyable.
I saw Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation with my 11 year old son, who enjoyed the film as much as I did. The storyline, the action scenes and of course, the actors were all amazing and a great excuse to get out of the hot sun and to a theater near you Friday July 31st, 2015. Be sure to purchase your tickets at Fandango. This is one film you have to see!
