MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE- GHOST PROTOCOL
starts with an IMF agent (played by Josh Holloway of LOST fame) who is being chased and ends up getting killed by a female
assassin. Soon IMF agents Benji Dunn and Jane Cater are breaking Ethan
hunt out of a Russian prison. He is given a mission to break into the Kremlin
to get the identity of a person of interest code named Cobalt who wants stolen Russian missile codes. Before Ethan knows, he and his team are set up for the bombing of the Kremlin and the whole IMF is
disavowed through Ghost Protocol (and Ethan branded as a traitor). Ethan
and his team in addition to a former field agent, William Brandt, are racing against the clock to prevent nuclear war and
clear the name of the IMF. They are on their way to such locales as Dubai
IMPOSSIBLE- GHOST PROTOCOL is an energetic action film. It flows like visual
poetry mixed with some dashes of humor. I like the team dynamic is
there even more than the last MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE film. The sequences in Dubai are the action highlights of the
film and the climax in no way tops that. MISSION:
IMPOSSIBLE- GHOST PROTOCOL is an excellent live action debut from Brad Bird (who previously directed three animated films). Cruise is at ease and in his element when the action scenes are flowing while
Simon Pegg is welcome comic relief. It is sad that Josh Holloway (Sawyer
on LOST) has only a small part in this movie.
IMPOSSIBLE- GHOST PROTOCOL is every bit as good as the last MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE
film. If a fifth film is made and as good as this one, I eagerly await the fun
and the action of that film. It is rare for a fourth film in a series to
be as good or as better as the films that came before it, but MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE- GHOST PROTOCOL delivers the good and comes
closer and closer to the dynamics of the IMF team in the MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE TV series.
If you want a great action film for this time of the year, go see this one now.
