Action: Top secret government ops try to stop terrorists from getting their hands on plutonium they intend to use to create nuclear bombs that will destabilize the current world order.
Despite having previously put former government agent turned terrorist Solomon Lane (SEAN HARRIS) behind bars, Ethan Hunt's (TOM CRUISE) work is not done. Lane's followers, known as The Apostles, have become terrorists for hire and are now after plutonium they intend to use in nuclear bombs to create a new world order. With marching orders from Alan Hunley (ALEC BALDWIN), the former CIA director turned Secretary of the IMF -- the top-secret Impossible Missions Force of the U.S. government -- Ethan and his small team -- comprised of field agent Benji Dunn (SIMON PEGG) and computer hacker Luther Stickell (VING RHAMES) -- set out to stop that from happening. But by saving Luther's life, Ethan ends up losing three small containers of the radioactive element.

Accordingly, new CIA director Erica Sloan (ANGELA BASSETT) isn't happy and assigns one of her assassins, August Walker (HENRY CAVILL), to accompany Hunt to find an arms dealer known only as John Locke and thus get that plutonium back. But just when they're nearly finished getting a facial scan of the man they believe to be Locke, things quickly turn sideways and Hunt's former adversary turned ally, MI6 agent Ilsa Faust (REBECCA FERGUSON), kills that man to save Hunt's life.

Unable to complete the facial scan and thus create a lifelike mask, Ethan instead pretends to be the man to meet a dealmaker known only as the White Widow (VANESSA KIRBY). She informs him that she can arrange for the delivery of the plutonium in exchange for the release of Solomon, something that doesn't sit well with Hunt for obvious reasons. With Ilsa also after that man and Hunt worried about her safety much as he did with his former wife, Julie (MICHELLE MONAGHAN), he and his team do what they can to foil the efforts of the various villains, all while preventing the deployment and use of the nuclear bombs.

If they're fans of any of the previous "Mission: Impossible" movies they probably will.
For violence and intense sequences of action, and for brief strong language.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.
