The plot is simply an excuse to show off all that whiz-bang technology.

It has a few very good ideas, and then, the rest of it is totally lackluster.

A passable - and forgettable - franchise entry.

After the infectious fun of JJ Abrams' M:I 3, which sparkled with the wit and charm of his espionage series Alias, the fourth installment is a thudding disappointment.

If we are watching Hunt caught, like the western world, in an inexorable downward spiral, we may crane our necks to watch the carwreck, but also wonder if this uneven franchise remains roadworthy.

It's kind of flat, inert - occasionally spectacular but not all that exciting.

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

While Brad Bird's direction is not nearly as fleet as his CV in animation would lead one to hope, it's not without its pleasures either.

"Ghost Protocol" is a less a film than a vanity license plate writ large - a throwback to when all an action film needed was a bogus concept, chase scenes and a roman numeral in a title.

The seams are showing badly..Aside from blocks of exposition about the various code words, this movie is chopped up into a collection of action packages.

This franchise has never dazzled with brilliance but it certainly baffles with something else. Mostly it's video game-style violence... occasionally pausing for necessary exposition that at home would be times to rest your thumbs.

'Ghost Protocol' is a stripped-down, lo-fi 'Mission Impossible' that winds the nail biting up to a near-unbearable cliffhanger degree, thanks to Brad Bird's sense of drama and timing.

Finally an action movie that recaptures the fun and adventure of old.

Brad Bird takes the series up a notch with enjoyable character dynamics and a straightforward but still intriguing story featuring plenty of unique action set pieces.

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.

"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.
