What are the themes?
The film also explores the concepts of loyalty and betrayal. Tom Cruise’s character has been with the Syndicate for a long time, and he has done many missions for them. He has even committed treason by using a CIA-created plan against the people that created it, thus committing treason. He does this to spite those who have hurt him and his family in some way or another. Simon Pegg’s character is also an accepted member of the Syndicate, but once he learns of an operation from his old company MI5 that he is forced to work on, he cannot do it because of his loyalty to MI5.
Who is the antagonist? What are its motives?
The Syndicate is the main antagonist in this film. The film’s plot is about stealing the world’s most powerful weapon and using it for hostile deeds. The Syndicate wants to take over the world, but more importantly, they want to be able to control it. If they can do that, people will have no choice but to follow their rules. The fight between Hunt and Cavill is one of the most epic scenes in the film. Hunt has been working with Luther for a long time but gets angry when he learns that Luther lied to him about how his wife died.
Who is the most loved character?
Simon Pegg plays David, who was in the Syndicate. He was recruited to be a member because of his hacker skills, but after he finds out that the agents behind the Syndicate are terrorists, he turns against them. Although he comes back to them, his loyalty is still with MI5. Alec Baldwin plays Luther Stickell, a member of the Syndicate. He acts as sort of a mentor for Hunt. Luther is also Ethan’s boss and has worked for the CIA for many years; thus it would not be strange if he had been recruited by “The Syndicate.
Would you recommend watching this?
Watch the film if you have a taste for action and thrillers. I would not recommend this movie to anyone who has sensitive feelings. The plot and all the violence in this film are very realistic, so it may not be as suitable for children or teenagers, especially if they have a softer side. Thanks for reading!
