First Reactions: 'Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation' Is a 'Blast"

It’s just a trickle, but the first reactions to “Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation” are out, and they’re glowingly positive across the (very small) board. As is its habit, Paramount is holding back the movie until near the last minute, with first reviews embargoed until the Friday before its July 31 opening and many critics not even seeing it until the 27th. But a few have seen it and gotten permission to Tweet brief reactions, and they certainly whet the appetite in a series that’s become one of Hollywood’s premiere showcases for action. It’s probably not a coincidence that the studio softened the embargo just hours after reports that “Rogue Nation” was tracking towards soft opening weekend box-office, but even these short takes give you something to look forward to.

“Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation” opens July 31.
