A sinuous series of set-pieces that never bogs down in exposition. Tom Cruise gets stranger and more robotic each year, but the Mission: Impossible series keeps improving. I was particularly impressed with the assassination games during the opera, a complex minuet of overlapping POVs that provides one of the many tense standoffs between Cruise and Rebecca Ferguson… Ferguson slinks away with the movie, her lithe athleticism perfect for the film’s clockwork mechanisms.

Writer-director Christopher McQuarrie settles on an aesthetic that fits in somewhere between the workmanlike anonymity of J.J. Abrams’s Mission: Impossible III and the graceful comic precision of Brad Bird’s Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol. McQuarrie is a wittier, more volatile director than Abrams, and though he lacks Bird’s formal ingenuity, he brings a certain rough-hewn panache to the proceedings.

Comic relief is everywhere, an aspect of franchise engineering where McQuarrie seems to have gone with the flow. Nothing in Rogue Nation feels as abject as the bit in Ghost Protocol when Tom Cruise and Simon Pegg disguised themselves as a corridor, but the jokes are still a drag.
