"Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation" Early Reviews: 97% on Rotten Tomatoes

Tom Cruise in "Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation"

Wow. Just when I thought the franchise couldn’t get any higher than the 93% score that the Brad Bird directed “Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol” received on Rotten Tomatoes, the soon-to-be-released fifth outing is sitting on 97%.

It’s still early, and there are only 30 reviews so far. Nonetheless, “Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation” is off to a fantastic start.

Directing Tom Cruise this time around is Christopher McQuarrie, a screenwriter who has collaborated with the action star in “Edge of Tomorrow,” “Jack Reacher,” and “Valkyrie.”

In my podcast with Binh Ngo this week, I’m predicting that “Rogue Nation” will open in the $70M range this weekend, mainly because of the good will from the previous film. If it gets there, then it would be the biggest opening for the franchise.

Great reviews will certainly help.

The early consensus from Rotten Tomatoes reads: “Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation continues the franchise's thrilling resurgence -- and proves that Tom Cruise remains an action star without equal.”
