Mission: Impossible -- Rogue Nation is one of the most fun, exciting popcorn movies in the last few months. It is so well executed that the many silly plot devices and plot holes disappear in the action and adventure. However, there's a lot of mature content.

The plot of Rouge Nation is similar to Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Many people in the government may be on the wrong side, and Ethan and his three friends may be the only people standing for justice, loyalty and friendship. (For spoilers and a detailed overview of the story, go to www.movieguide.org.)

Miraculously, each one of them has a pocket full of devices that can open any safe, take over any computer, and open any facility. In other words, the devices are impossible, keeping with the theme of the series. The movie is so much fun, however, that the impossible situations and devices become part of the jeopardy and humor.

Regrettably, however, there's a tremendous mount of killing. Some of it regrettably even looks like a lot of fun. Rebecca Ferguson, who plays Ilsa, is like a young Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow. Her fight scenes are impressive.

The movie has less Christian content and less moral content than the previous Mission: Impossible movies. That said, Mission: Impossible -- Rogue Nation is devoid of overt sexual content and only has a handful of obscenities and profanities. Sadly, most of the foul language is at the very beginning, setting the wrong tone for the rest of the movie.

These filmmakers in the past have produced some of MOVIEGUIDE's favorite movies. They understand story and plot. If they only understood to tone down a couple scenes, Rogue Nation would have been a great movie for teenagers and adults. As it is, older fans of the series who love popcorn movies will enjoy Mission: Impossible -- Rogue Nation. It's the best crafted popcorn movie so far this year.
