J.J. Abrams turn to direct an outing for the Mission impossible franchise made it clear that every movie in the series would be very different from each other. While it is better than the second, and most certainly better than the absolutely miserable first one, it still feels like some of the fun had been sucked out of the action sequences, and in it's place lied constant violence in a more frantic and desperate tone. Don't get me wrong, there are very good action sequences in this movie, just like the previous one, but all of the joy of the franchise just doesn't seem to be neatly as high as it previously was. So, parents should except: More intense action violence, some disturbing images involving a bomb charge going off, some sexual content including two fairly tame sex scenes, and finally, some infrequent but moderate profanity. So while ti could have been much better than it is, it is still a fairly solid action movie.
