Critic Review - TIME Magazine

I'm thinking it, so I might as well say it: Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol is no Fast Five.

NO Soup for you one year! Fast Five? really? what happen they forget to give you comp tickets so you slam a fun movie? Oh and just for the record, FF5 was never intented to be an oscar winner. It was a mega money acton flick. Just like this. Stop over thinking the movie. Its fake, its fun.

Fast Five was a terrible movie, so I'd assume that's a good thing.

Seriously give the man a break! I concur Ghost Protocol is pretty overrated, even if I wouldn´t comopare it to Fast Five, because that movie sucked big time. I would compare it to its prequel MI3 and note that Philip Seymour Hofmann was a much more remarkable villain, that the plot and dialogues were way smarter, that character development was much better. Just remember the opening scene where Hunt is interrogated by Hofman and you´ll get my point. And finally: the Rabbits Foot was way cooler and more resourceful than some nuclear launch codes, hands down!

no fast five? wtf? Wow, since when did TIME magazine get such shitty ass writers. I mean you're entitled to your own opinion and all that shit, but so am I and my opinion is that Richard Corliss eats farts...

Oh well done for working that fact out! By the way....I'm thinking it also, so I might as well say it: Mission Impossible is no Hello Dolly. Hmm.

Well this movie is great. but I won't say that I disagree with Richard. Fast Five was a great action movie, and it beats Mission Impossible

Wait...
Shouldn't this review be "fresh". I mean, wouldn't that be a COMPLIMENT to say it's not Fast Five?

I enjoyed fast five and I enjoyed this even more. In fact I like this one so much it was the first film in years that I saw twice in theaters. Anyway, ghost protocol is filmed better and probably acted better than fast five. Also, while it is a little lacking in plot(as fast five was), you have to give the movie credit for its set pieces, that's at least half the reason it's so good. And that dubai tower bit including the dust storm might be the best sequence in any action movie ever. Wow, why did I right so much?
