Matt's Review of Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol
Leave it to Brad Bird and J.J. Abrams to bring us the best "mission" yet. Tom Cruise returns to true form in his most iconic role with "Ghost Protocol" a fast-paced thrill ride that breathes new life into this aging franchise. It may be a typical Hollywood sequel in that the big budget goes towards the spectacle instead of the story, but the narrative is still surprisingly effective. The stunts are impressive, the acting top notch, and the plot (if far-fetched at times) manages to keep the tension high. "Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol" is action story-telling at its best: a perfect blend of humor, drama, and intensity.
