A new Mission Impossible team sets out to save the world.
Unfortunately, they are on the U.S. Government’s shit list after being set-up for a bombing at the Kremlin and have been disavowed.
Tom Cruise (as Ethan Hunt) takes control in the effort to find and stop a mad Russian from starting nuclear war in “retaliation” for the bombing. Local, Modesto native, Jeremy Renner (as Brandt), Simon Pegg (as Benji), and Paula Patton (as Jane) are all terrific as the MI-4 team.
From Budapest, to Moscow, to Dubai (where some of the most harrowing stunts I have ever seen take place in the tallest building in the world), to Mumbai…the scenery is spectacular, the story line is flawless, and there is never a dull moment. Over two hours long, it felt like ten minutes.
“Mission Impossible Ghost Protocol” is SPECTACULAR.
OK for kids since the violence is not all that bad. I don’t recall any f-words, but, there is not a whole lot of dialogue with all the action. Action truly speaks louder than words. Scary stunt scenes that will make your heart pound and your hands sweat. Unbelievable.
Your mission should you choose to accept it…. is to go see this movie!
PS: Tom Cruise, at almost 50, still does his own stunts…he is crazy!
