Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol(2011)
No Plan. No Backup. No Choice.
Tom Cruise returns in the fourth entry to the Mission: Impossible franchise, shot across Dubai, Prague, Moscow, Mumbai, Bengaluru and Vancouver.... More
After wrongly accusing Ethan Hunt (Cruise) for the terrorist bombing of the Kremlin, the President initiates 'Ghost Protocol' causing the immediate termination of the entire IMF agency. Forced to go rogue, Ethan teams up with a bunch of fellow IMF fugitives in order to clear his name and prevent another attack.
Newbies to the series include Jeremy Renner (The Hurt Locker) and director Brad Bird, the animated movie giant (The Iron Giant, The Incredibles) making his live-action feature debut.Hide

The fourth impossible mission, a stand-alone entry with minimal ties to previous instalments, is a lean, effective action flick. Far more entertaining than the latest Bond, the focus here emphasises the team aspect of the original television series.... More
Not that Thomas Cruise Mapother IV (real name, no kidding) is a minor player. This is very much his show (especially during the lose-your-stomach IMAX sequences scaling the world’s tallest building, in which he apparently did his own stunts). Surrounding him in the field, however, is a solid ensemble of espionage: the amusing Simon Pegg, the sexy Paula Patton and the mysterious Jeremy Renner.
Director Brad Bird, making his live-action debut after the fantastic Pixar hits The Incredibles and Ratatouille, stages simple yet effective chase scenes, fist-fights, break outs and break ins. An Incredibles-eque score from Michael Giacchino keeps the mood buoyant, while a tight edit keeps proceedings tense and engaging.
Sure, the villain is a bit weak and there isn’t much re-watch value, but I found Ghost Protocol to be a fun night at the cinema. It gets the basics right, isn’t over-ambitious and the plot (albeit thin) keeps ticking forward with setbacks for the team around every corner. I wouldn’t be averse to seeing another outing with the same team in a few years’ time.Hide

This would have to be the best Mission impossable so far.There are plenty of twists in the story to make it interesting.
It has a good cast,all with their own different personalities,which does make it fun at times.There are still plenty of high-tech gadgets,some which always seem to work in the nick of time.
A little on the long side but still ok.
