From Amazon.co.uk

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

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars This is why you should watch Ghost Protocol: 23 Feb 2012
By N. J. H. TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Blu Ray Quality. 4 Feb 2013
By Chris Morse VINE VOICE
Format:Blu-ray
Not a review on the content of the film (although I will say, without Simon Pegg I think this film would have been a real duffer), but more on the quality of the BluRay transfer.
Initial scenes, and those in good light are as crisp as you would expect from bluRay. However, the darker scenes, notably where they are hiding out in the desert scene and also where they are in tunnels etc the quality is very bad. There is so much artefacting going on in the back it is very distracting. Fortunately there are not too many scenes like this, but there is enough to make me write this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Impossibly Exciting 30 Dec 2011
Format:Blu-ray
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars clever but lacking something.... 28 May 2012
Format:Blu-ray
I really enjoyed this movie and the blu-ray transfer and audio are almost reference quality. So why not 5 stars ? Well for me Cruise was too pedestrian in this movie and some of the action sequences were mis-matched for pace compared to the rest of the movie. The reality button is also too far stretched with this plot... So I was left feeling GREAT but could have been AWESOME. There are a few other reasons why this misses out on 5 stars but they would give the plot away so maybe judge for yourself....

4.0 out of 5 stars The countdown isn't helping.... 25 Mar 2014
Format:Blu-ray
Ethan Hunt and his team are racing against time to track down a dangerous terrorist named Hendricks, who has gained access to Russian nuclear launch codes and is planning a strike on the United States.

An attempt by the team to stop him at the Kremlin ends in a disaster, with an explosion causing severe destruction to the Kremlin and the IMF being implicated in the bombing.

This incident forces the President to invoke Ghost Protocol, under which the IMF is disavowed, and will be offered no help or backup in any form.

Undaunted, Ethan and his team chase Hendricks to Dubai, and from there to Mumbai, they might still be too late to stop a disaster....

No matter what people think about Tom Cruise, he is still one of the biggest movie stars on the planet, and the majority of the time, when he releases a movie, it's often something special.

And this movie is just that, a big slice of special. Taking all the difficult elements from the first three movies (Chimera, the rabbits foot etc) This has no macguffin, just a psycho who believes that nuclear war will bring peace on earth.

So we are threw straight into the action, and the majority of characters in this film have something to do, or are bought in a lot later to help Hunt.

The narrative is lean and easy to digest, and Renner could really do a good job as Cruises replacement, if that ever happens.

Pegg fills in the gap for some very amusing moments, which release the tension a little from the set pieces.

And what set pieces they are! From the prison break, to the sandstorm car chase, to the fight in some strange robotic car park, they excite and make the film what it is.
