Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation. Christopher McQuarrie. 2015. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
As is the case with its successor, set piece game in Rogue Nation=STRONG. Opera sequence RULES! I would LOVE an entire thriller set during an opera. Various levels/sorts of conflict are negotiated (Baldwin bureaucratizing IMF, Benji wanting to be a "real spy", Ilsa having adversarial relationships with both Lane and Hunt, etc.) expertly, excitement never wanes. Ding: icing record store woman=LAZY inciting incident.
