"Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol" is the best film in the series since the original. It's a fast-paced thrillride that'll keep you thoroughly engaged as it hops from one amazing sequence to the next.
Mission: Impossible-Ghost Protocol may be nothing ground-breaking but it is the best example of how to make a skillfully made action film that works because of all the right elements that are blended together to create pure adrenaline bliss.
All the gizmos and technology on display in M:I 4 are probably impossible based on current science. But, wow, do you ever get the feeling that this neat stuff is very doable at some point in the future? I sure do.
It's Cruise's daredevil bravado that provides the film's standout episode, a sequence of hair-raising, palm-dampening, gob-smacking suspense that sees him clinging to the side of the world's tallest building.
While the script occasionally flirts with weightlessness, Bird's ecstatic camera and some brilliant casting - to say nothing of Cruise's selflessness as a stuntman - make this a tentpole sequel worth getting behind.
