8/10: Ghost Protocol is a first-rate blockbuster that establishes itself as the best feature film in the franchise after Brian De Palma's classic
Saturday, July 25, 2020

Mission Impossible is certainly one of the most profitable franchises in the history of cinema, always dragging millions to its sessions. And this is due to the quality of each of its chapters. Unlike most cases, even more so in the action genre, here is an example that the quality is increased throughout the films, always maintaining a high standard. Following the idea of calling different directors, for this fourth part was called director Brad Bird, who until then had never directed a film with real actors. In the world of animation, his first feature The Iron Giant (1999) was not successful, but the following two - already at Pixar - received many nominations and awards, such as the Oscar for Best Animation for The Incredibles (2004) and Ratatouille (2007).Now secret agent Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) is disallowed by the president of the United States after the country has been accused of bombing the Kremlin. The Ghost Protocol begins, which aims...

8/10: A Potpourri of Vestiges Review: The Action flick of the year, should you choose to watch it
Friday, December 16, 2011

The long wait is finally over as Tom Cruise finally returns to the celluloid to reprise his epic role of the enigmatic IMF agent Ethan Hunt. The brilliance of Mission: Impossible III was marred by the infamous sacking of Tom Cruise by Paramount's owner and movie mogul Sumner Redstone, who blamed Cruise's bizarre sofa-hopping TV antics, and intransigent support of Scientology for movie's relatively poor show at the box office that resulted in losses of up to £75million in revenue. The sordid incident ensured that the wait for the next installment of the franchise had to be a long one. The half a decade lull that ensued saw Cruise's career sunk to a new nadir with movies like Lions for Lambs (2007), Valkyrie (2008), and Knight and Day (2010) failing to impress at the box office, while his contemporaries and coevals continued to tumble records at the box office, attaining new heights of fame and...

9/10: If you can't enjoy this ride then entertaining you is a mission: impossible
Wednesday, December 7, 2011

Mission Accomplished"...Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol is the forth film in the franchise (though first not to acknowledge its place in the title) and sees Tom Cruise reprising the leading role of the globe-trotting super spy Ethan Hunt. Throughout the series Hunt has evolved from team player to lone wolf and now in Ghost Protocol he must become a true leader of a team that, for the first time, he didn't choose.The film blasts off into overdrive from the minute the gates open and rarely lets up, it's one hell of a ride and there's enough action and gadgets here to please any fan of the spy film genre. The plot is fairly straightforward; the bad guy obtains the key to the ultimate weapon and plans to destroy the world with it. Hunt and his team, working without the support of the IMF, must stop him at all costs. It has enough twists and turns...

8/10: Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol
Friday, June 22, 2012

This fourth entry breathes fresh life into the Mission: Impossible film Franchise. The original 1996 Mission: Impossible was a promising start, and now 15 Years and four films later, I'm happy to say that Tom Cruise has still got it. This franchise - unlike most these days - has still got its edge, and isn't showing any signs of losing it or wearing down. I could definitely see another episode being produced in the future. And we have Tom Cruise to thank for all of that... because he is, after all, the man who has carried these films. Cruise has not only starred in them all, but he has also been very involved on the development and production end, receiving billing as co-producer on all installments. Overall, MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE - GHOST PROTOCOL offers lighter adventure - perhaps on a bigger scale than any of the previous films - and also features a stellar ensemble cast, and some of the best popcorn entertainment...

10/10: Ethan Hunt is Back in Action
Saturday, December 17, 2011

and he's climbing the tallest building in the world, the Burj Khalifa of Dubai. Not only he's ascending the super-tall structure, he's going to infiltrate the Kremlin in Moscow, chase people in a huge sandstorm, and of course ... save the world. The story: the IMF is accused for bombing the Kremlin, although they were not actually the perpetrators. Due to this, the IMF is shut down and "Operation Ghost Protocol" is launched with Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise), Jane Carter (Paula Patton), Benji Dunn (Simon Pegg), and William Brandt(Jeremy Renner), a group of 4 people being what is left of the IMF. Together, they find that there was another person behind the bombing code-named "Cobalt" and he has a plan to ignite a nuclear war which he believes would begin the next stage of human evolution. From beginning to end, I was hooked by all the action scenes. The action scenes and all the moves...
