Apparently not, because the world’s most famous Scientologist (and rare achiever of the religion’s goal of getting “Clear”) is willing to do just about anything to entertain the pants off of you. And he succeeds at every turn, whether it’s clinging to the fuselage of an ascending airplane in Minsk or racing motorcycles at 100 mph along a narrow, snaking road in Morocco. He even holds his breath for more than three minutes under water — in a whirlpool! Which is only right since we have to hold ours for two whole hours, as “Rogue Nation” delivers thrill after thrill to the point where your nerves can’t take it anymore.
