Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol is arguably the best of the bunch. Tom Cruise once again shines in the role of Ethan Hunt whilst Paula Patton, Simon Pegg and Jeremy Renner shine as Ethan's teammates/friends as each member of the team is compelling and given their time to shine in the spotlight. The set pieces are absolutely amazing, every time we get to one of those particular sequences, I feel pumped up. They're thrilling, tense and help you care more for these characters. That one part in the film where Ethan climbs the Burj Khalifa is one of the best scenes in the Mission: Impossible movies almost reminiscent of the vault scene from the first film but capable of standing on its own. And all this under the direction of Brad Bird. His transition from animation to live-action works whilst still showing off his gifts as a director...although he did seem to have slightly gone on autopilot when he did Tomorrowland. A guilty pleasure of mine but it'll never match up to The Iron Giant, The Incredibles, Ratatouille or this film. Anyway, back to the review for MI4. This film is pretty much a thrill ride from start to finish and manages to truly breathe new life into the hit movie franchise loosely based off of a TV show from the 1960's.

Arguably the best in the Franchise, Ghost Protocol features one of Tom Cruise's best acting performances combined with one of the best scenes in the last decade - scaling the Burj Khalifa.

Grade - A
My personal favourite in the franchise, 'Ghost Protocol' wins me over with that stunning scene on the Burj Khalifa alone.

Expendable high end action, done proper and well. Mission Impossible series are comparable to James Bond, just minus the "stylism". In terms of budget and production costs, it really pays off in gripping action stunts.

Tom Cruise, Jeremy Renner, Ving Raymes, and Simon Peg make the perfect spy team! These movies keep getting better, not including the second one. The eventual passing of the torch to Renner in the future is evident. The stunts keep getting crazier and better and keeps the audience wanting more and more. I can't wait for what this franchise has waiting for me next.

bit of a cheesy start but an easy 4 and as good as the very first.

Exciting and enjoyable as the other MI movies.

Five years after the third film we once again get a different director and with that a different style and for me this is slightly better than the third film though not a total triumph over that entry in the series since I feel the main villain is weak and not all that memorable but besides that this is an excellent action film. Tom Cruise is at his best, the supporting cast (especially those on his team) are solid, I love the action since it mixes real stunts and CGI perfectly, the score is solid, I like the plot, the script balances wit and seriousness really well and I like the pacing.

I expected a high budget, wise-cracking action film, and that's exactly what I got.

Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol is essentially the perfect spy film: providing an exceptional story, amazing effects, and well played characters.

Ghost Protocol resurrected a franchise and reinforced Tom Cruise as the action star he deserves to be. The set piece in the Burj Khalifa was worth the price of an admission ticket alone

I'm not a huge fan of the mission impossible movies but I love Brad Bird

The Tom Cruise stunt where he's scaling the Kremlin, nuff said.

It's good movie to watch

This movie is just as good as the other Mission Impossible movies. Good action and special effects.

While this did occasionally drag on for way too long, overall it was pretty good. Say what you want about Tom Cruise, but the guy knows how to get the job done in front of the camera. This is about what I have come to expect from the series at this point. Worth watching if this is your kind of movie.

Particularly those that feel the Daniel Craig era Bond has gotten too gritty should enjoy the over the top spy gadgetry featured in this Ethan Hunt outing but I'll take the first and third films over this any day. It's fun but disposable.

WHAT I LIKED: We're back to square one with Mission: Impossible, and thus we have one hell of a fun ride to behold. This movie is all about fun and style and I reckon you'll be hard-pushed to find a blockbuster that can slap quite such a big smile on your face. The racing action pieces, locations, lush cinematography, score and humour... it's all there people. Strap yourselves in for a blockbuster joy ride.
WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE: Going back to basics does mean we don't quite feel the engagement of the more sophisticated third instalment.
VERDICT: Forgetting the serious character moments and moving plot elements of its predecessor means its back to basics, and that's both a good and bad thing.
