Product Description

The IMF is shut down when it's implicated in the bombing of the Kremlin, causing Ethan Hunt and his new team to go rogue to clear th eir organization's name.


On the cusp of turning 50, it looks like Tom Cruise has entered a new phase of self-conception with a more maturely controlled version of superspy Ethan Hunt in the sleek and supercharged Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol. The things Cruise has done right in M: I part four include toning down his youthful, arrogant preening and letting his cast mates share more of the spotlight (Jeremy Renner, Paula Patton, and Simon Pegg all have some terrifically shiny moments). He also lets the unique creative vision of director Brad Bird shine through in a first live-action outing for the acclaimed helm of Iron Giant, The Incredibles, and Ratatouille. Still looking much younger than his years (that hair! those pecs! those abs!), Cruise is playing more age-appropriately, letting a little wisdom and grace seep into his charisma so the wattage of his mere presence smoulders a little deeper. It's a nice nod to a greying generation that says you can get older and still be cool. All that is not to say he doesn't play up his action-star chops to the max. In a mostly inconsequential narrative arc that has something to do with purloined nuclear launch codes, an important metal briefcase, satellite uplinks, and global annihilation that leaps from Moscow to Dubai to Mumbai, Cruise is as dangerously nimble as he has ever been. He dangles one-handed from the tallest building in the world, bounds off ledges, springs out of speeding vehicles, tumbles and careens up and down the levels of an automated parking garage, and generally sprints and jumps his way across the movie with only a scratch or bruise to show for it. Also on the outlandish upside is a happily stereotypical villain straight out of Connery-era Bond and as many bleeding-edge gadgets as the art department techno-geeks could dream up. A running gag is that many of these electronic fantasy tools fail at just the wrong moment, which is part of a larger wink acknowledging how utterly preposterous yet ingeniously conceived this behemoth of a movie really is. The gadgetry is not limited just to the miraculous props. Ghost Protocol employs CGI fakery of the highest order from the sub-industry of effects contractors that ratchet up the standard of computing power and software design, one-upping each successive action-adventure extravaganza. The loving detail that goes into blowing up the Kremlin or rendering a photo-realistic sandstorm erupting across the enhanced skyline of an Oz-like desert city is nothing short of miraculous. What's more astonishing is that Tom Cruise closes the deal with a selling power that's as new and improved as the laminates on his multi-million-dollar teeth. --Ted Fry

After being a big fan of Mission Impossible it seemed only right to delve into the world of Ghost Protocol. I had high hopes for this film as I think many other fans did, but after hearing how impractical some of the plot ideas were I have to admit to being a little put off and avoided watching it until the crowds died down. Now that I've seen it though, I wish I hadn't waited so long - it was brilliant.

So why was it any good? There's no point in me expressing how great it is if I can't tell you why you might think so too. So with that said, the general idea for this movie: The IMF (The team of Ethan Hunt/Tom Cruise and the gang) must attempt to derail plans for a nuclear war between America and Russia. Why the nuclear war? Well IMF have been framed. For bombing the Kremlin. This brings about the "Ghost Protocol" were individuals of the IMF team must go it alone to try and prove their innocence - not to mention tracking down the real baddies.

I was glad to see the return of Benji, Simon Pegg's character, he really did make the film at times for me - nobody likes a serious MI film. The remaining agents, Jane and Brandt are interesting in their own right though with quite big roles to play (and an interesting twist). But what most people notice the most appears to be all the gadgets, or at least that's what I could hear people chatting about during the movie. It's crammed full of cars, some pretty unique gadgets (of questionable practicality) and some jam-packed action sequences; some of which have great impact and are executed really well.

Was it "bum-on-the-edge-of-the-seat" good? Yes! I would urge you to watch this, I was tensed and excited throughout. I'm so relieved I wasn't disappointed and couldn't care less whether the gadgets would actually work or the stunts wouldn't actually kill you - it would have been boring without these features.

Format: DVD
Mission Impossible continues to push for the most spectacular set pieces in modern action cinema and succeeds on every level. As always Ethan Hunt finds himself facing various "Impossible" tasks and manages to get through them with some wonderfully over the top gadgets and gritted determination. No feat is too big.

In this story the IMF have had to invoke Ghost Protocol, meaning that all their agents need to go into hiding. The story itself is fairly bland and only serves to lead you from one overblown action scene to the next, but this really is a fun ride. Simon peg returns for a bit of comic relief and the new comers add a bit more bite to the hand to hand combat scenes.

Set pieces range from car and foot chases in a sandstorm to espionage and infiltration of some rich tycoon's extravagant party. The usual tricks are used such as the masks which completely change the look of the wearer. There are also regular nods to the other films in the series for the devout follower such as Agent Grant hanging inches from a spinning fan akin to Tom Cruise's scene stealer in the original albeit with a modern twist.

The action is fast frantic and beyond belief and by the time it all comes to an end you will realise you have barely taken a breath for two hours. As with all of the films in the series the ending is a bit flat, with the final confrontation not being as brutal as expected. However when the ride to that point has been as good, you wont care much. If you like your action thick and fast then this is the film for you. A great addition to a great series which shows no signs of running out of steam.

Format: DVD
To me it has always been the theme song. I could watch just about anything to that sound track and think it was great. Fortunately we had a great film that explodes on the big screen. The gadgets were extremely high tech and I seriously doubt many of them really exist. Face scanner in a contact lens?

The opening scene of Cruise in a Serbian high security prison being broken out, was superb. It becomes a mystery that plays constantly in the back of your mind during the film. Who was the man he took with him when escaped? Where is he now? It engages you and puts your mind into the proper framework. Tom Cruise is later written off along with the IMF and must operate rouge to save the US from terrorist named Hendricks who has the Russian launch codes and plans to use them against the US. Cruise's team are the guys that just happened to be with him at the moment...with no masks! Great Stuff.

This is a good old fashion break out the tub of popcorn and enjoy the feature action-comedy-thriller. I didn't see it in IMAX, but clearly that is the way to go considering how the scenes were shot. After seeing it once, I want to see it again on the really big screen. And of course every "impossible" scene is made more complex, complicated, or twisted. Humorous and heart stopping action all in the same moment.

Good Luck.

No f-bombs, sex, or nudity.

Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol is one of those movies where you are probably best advised to leave most of your brain at home. Think too much and you'll find plot holes and ludicrous improbabilities. This may taint your enjoyment of what is surely one of the most exciting films ever to hit the big screen. For this is a pulsating, heart-pumping popcorn movie of the highest quality.

The plot revolves around the attempts of IMF, headed by Agent Ethan Hunt (a very cool and unflustered Tom Cruise), to prevent nuclear war between the USA and Russia after the Kremlin is bombed and IMF framed for the attack. The team is disavowed with the `Ghost Protocol', a black ops contingency, forcing the remaining members to continue alone to attempt to prove their innocence and find the real terrorists behind the bombing in a globe-trotting rogue mission. Support for Hunt comes in the form of the remaining 3 agents of IMF; technology nerd Benji (Simon Pegg); Jane Carter (Paula Patton) and Brandt (The Hurt Locker's Jeremy Renner), an analyst hiding a deep secret.

In a move that will surely have the creators of Bond 23 reaching for the smelling salts, director Brad Bird (whose only previous directing credits are animated films) packs the film with fast cars, gadgets (albeit with some dubious science) and audacious stunts. Bird's handling of the action scenes is masterful, bringing the same flair and sophistication that he exhibited in his Pixar features `The Incredibles' and `Ratatouille'. By this evidence he was the perfect man to take the Mission Impossible franchise to a whole different level.
