I'm thinking it, so I might as well say it: Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol is no Fast Five.
Damn straight it's no Fast Five... but isn't that a good thing? I mean that movie was decent (a nice change for the series) but it's no Ghost Protocol.

seriously, fast five was the worst of the fast and furious films and they are both totally different types of films, so how can you compare them.

How is it the worst? Ok......

I don't understand why some magazines let these people be critics??! A lot of these critics come across as far from the sharpest tools in the shed and they actually have these jobs?? Makes me seethe! I would love to be a critic on here but according to this sites rules i have to be an employee of a magazine or work/own an online mass publication in order to do it.... No thanks! Drawing comparisons with Fast Five and you work for TIME!?? Were you stoned??! Next time when you think something, make the action its opposite!

Wtf... you thought Fast Five was a good movie? It was entertaining but the movie had NOTHING to do with cars. The set pieces were a bit over the top if you ask me whereas in MI:GP the set pieces actually fit. The script for GP was a helluva lot better than Fast Five's.
Some of you "Top Critics" just crack me up. Don't get me wrong, I respect your opinion. But there are far better action movies you can compare GP than Fast Five. Fast Five? Effin Fast Five. My God...

Well, this is a first. I'm agreeing with a negative critic. Cruise was tired, the plot was predictable, and the acting tepid. It was too long, too contrived, and too impossible. I was totally into the first two Mission's, tolerated the third and this was just plain horrible.

This movie has NOTHING to do w/ Fast Five.
Jan 6 - 11:34 PM
Fast Five is about CARS and CRIMINALS! This is about secret agents going into ghost protocol! HOW CAN YOU COMPARE!?

It seems fairly obvious to me that the critic's comment was a sarcastic jab at MI: Ghost Protocol in that he was saying it was worse than even Fast Five (a terrible movie, I'll assume, since the previous ones were). I'm only unsure about my interpretation since so many of you seemed to have not picked up on what I thought was quite obvious.

Yeah, he's definitely trolling all of you.

I respect a critic who dislikes a movie I tend to like. But the reasoning should be valid. Comparing it to a whole another franchise whose genre is different and criticizing a movie is a very vague excuse. I agree this was very different from the previous movies in that it was quite slow and the product placement was a bit too much. But still I found it a rather enjoyable experience. If this wasnt an MI movie, I probably would have liked it better.

Ohh.. i read your full review and i think you hate tom cruise

Mission Impossible 4........is better than Fast Five
Jan 18 - 02:48 PM
I really think it's very retarded to compare to Fast Five. Yeah I said it. The level of, how can I say, appreciated action in mission impossible movies are much higher than Fast and Furious movies. Meaning I actually care enough about the actor "Tom Cruise" running around, falling off cars, knocking folks out than I did the whole cast combined in Fast and Furious movies doing the same. Even if you were bored with Mission Impossible, at least appreciate the work he puts in his movies to add logic to action, instead of just action. Even the stunts. You know how I would feel if I'm hanging from a building in my movie to make viewers intrigued while eating popcorn, and then a critic review like this states Mission Impossible is no Fast Five. I would be annoyed, but then I would just go home to my mansion. lol.
