Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol

Tom Cruise returns in the fourth entry to the Mission: Impossible franchise, shot across Dubai, Prague, Moscow, Mumbai, Bengaluru and Vancouver.

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.

Good action flick

Would recommend to anyone. Saw this in IMAX, the scenes with him on the skyscraper were tough to watch!

Seriously underwhelming

Having seen the other 3 MI films, this one was seriously pretty average, lacking the novelty value of the first while not being quite as much of a train-wreck as the third. So I was completely gobsmacked to see this received 97% on RottenTomatoes... Sure, this was high budget, plenty of 'exotic' locations, and there were brief moments of levity from Simon...

The Incredibles Mr Bird

Fantastic big screen action entertainment - take note Mr Bay! Brad Bird leaps effortlessly from animation (IRON GIANT and INCREDIBLES) to live action and it really works. MI3 was the best so far in the series - JJ Abrams did a great job and the villain was sheer class (Philip Seymour Hoffmann). MI4 lacks a great villain - but delivers by the B52 payload in...

A Well Made Movie

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.

Mission Accomplished!

Okay, I have to confess something: this was my first Mission Impossible film experience! For some unfathomable reason, I had just never seen any of the first three films before. So, I was a little skeptical about Ghost Protocol, as I thought it might be one of those cliched thriller/spy films. To some extent, it was - BUT it subverted the cliches...

Film of the year

Is there anything Brad Bird can't do? Interest was certainly high when it was announced that the animation director would be making his live-action directing debut, choosing to tackle the third sequel in the Mission: Impossible film series. Brian De Palma's first, while it hasn't aged well, is a tense 70s style thriller, John Woo's M:I 2 increased the...

Awesome Action Series

The Mission Impossible series is so fun to watch so exciting and i love watching Tom Cruise. It was so amazing to watch him climb that bulding in Dubai. Just a fun movie series to watch.

It's a movie of dazzling individual parts that don't come together to fully satisfying effect in the final stretch.

A few damp squibs aside, Bird’s sensibilities make for the most animated Mission to date. Don’t see in IMAX if you’re a vertigo sufferer, though…

This is a good value, bang for your buck, old-fashioned blockbuster that makes up in action what it lacks in soul.

Wall-to-wall action in a spectacular, if repetitive, fourth series entry.

One of the big-studio highlights of the year—it's smart, snappy and stylish fun just in time for the holiday.
