'Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation': An Emphatic Continuation Of The 'MI' Legacy

The movie is essentially a throwback to the first two films of the MI franchise--Mission: Impossible (1996) and Mission: Impossible II (2000). Also, the influence of the classic James Bond films cannot be overlooked. As a matter of fact, Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation is a lot closer to the 007 films of yore than the most contemporary James Bond films, which, because of their over-dependence on the plot elements, lack not only in action but also in style and adventure.
