Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol (2011)

US 133m, Colour
Director: Brad Bird; Cast: Tom Cruise, Jeremy Renner, Simon Pegg, Paula Patton

Presented in IMAX, the fourth chapter in the Mission Impossible franchise is probably the best since the 1996 original and is certainly one of the best looking action films ever made. Like its predecessors, MI4 is an action packed adrenaline-filled production carefully crafted around a thin plot which is mildly interesting, but never really engaging. Despite the film’s scripted shortcomings, the choreography of the visual effects and sound editing provide a top-notch, edge-of-your-seat experience which is really all that anyone should expect from this largely predictable and outrageously improbable action series (Klaus Ming December 2011).

    The Bollywood film star Anil Kapoor features in this film as well!

  2. I thought the movie was great! Although, I’m terribly disappointed with what Empire Theatres gets away with calling an “IMAX Experience”.

      Same here. I was chatting about it over lunch, and we’re not the only people who have noticed the IMAX-light experience here in St. John’s!

    This sounds like my experience a few days ago when I saw the Sherlock Holmes movie. It was exactly what I was in a mood for: it was fast and clever, Downey, Rapace and Fry were great, the gay subtext of the first movie is even farther out of the closet (and very amusing), and a lot of things blew up in reeeeeaaaalllly slooooooow motion. Did the story make sense? I have no idea, I wasn’t really paying attention to that. Did they prevent the disaster they were trying to stop? No, they just postponed it for a few years. But it was fun.

      Definitely a place for movies like these! I’ve yet to see the new Sherlock Holmes, and will probably catch it over the holidays for the same reason.
