Belarus delivers chemical weapons to terrorists in new Mission: Impossible film

33

The fifth instalment of Mission: Impossible was released on July 30.

It is called Rogue Nation. Residents of the Czech Republic were among the first to watch the film, which will be released in Belarus on August 6, Radio Svaboda reports.

The film shows American secret agents trying to expose an international terrorist syndicate that kills politicians and organises terrorist attacks around the world. Many top officials and politicians are linked to the consortium, which makes the task more complicated.

The story begins in Belarus. Secret agents try to get on a plane that is going to take off from a military aerodrome in Minsk. While his partner is trying to hack the Russian-language control system and open the door of the plane using his iPad, agent Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruis) leaps onto the wing as the plane is taking off and gets into a baggage section. The plane carries chemical weapons from Minsk to Damask, but the special agent manages to stop the sending of dangerous cargo.

The story then moves in Malaysia and later to the US, the UK, Cuba, France, Austria and Morocco.

The scene of the AirbusA400M Atlas take off was shot at a military base in the UK, with green fields and forests resembling Belarus.

The list of roles on IMBD website includes three roles of Belarusian soldiers and criminals. The role of a Belarusian soldier who accompanies chemical weapons and meetsTom Cruse on the plane was played by Denis Khoroshko, a London-based Belarusian actor.

The authors say most stunts in the film were performed by Tom Cruise. For example, he trained to hold his breath for six minutes and flew outside the plane at a height of about 1700 metres.

Mission: Impossible 6 is expected to be shot next summer.

Four previous Mission: Impossible films earned more than 2 billion dollars, making it one of the most successful franchises of Paramount Pictures.
