Mission: Impossible 4 Movie Review

Ratings:3.5/5 Reviewer:Rajeev Masand Site:CNN IBN

Ghost Protocol is easily the most enjoyable of the four Mission Impossible movies, not least because it borrows the best elements of each of the previous films and fuses them to create a fast-paced, clever, and – believe it or not – humorous adventure.Shot and edited with remarkable flair, Ghost Protocol is a treat for the senses. Cruise, who’s pushing 50 but hasn’t lost any of his charm, makes a convincing action hero, exuding warmth, humor and vulnerability to humanize the part. But the film belongs to its captain, director Brad Bird, who recognizes exactly what the franchise needed for a jumpstart.I’m going with three-and-a-half out of five for Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol. It’s exactly the kind of film that goes very well with a bucket of popcorn!

Action has always been the high point of the Mission Impossible series. But this kind of action: Wow! The new film is essentially a relentless roller-coaster ride that doesn’t give you a moment to sit back and keeps the adrenalin pumping to dizzy heights as Tom Cruise gets on his regular mission of saving the world, one more time. And once again, he has nothing on his side, not even his government, other than his physical prowess, his ability to perform the most death-defying stunts and an abundance of sheer luck which redefines the word ‘impossible’ as ‘possible’.

Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol delivers on account of its jaw-dropping action. Whether it’s the justifiably talked-about stunt with Cruise clambering the 124th floor of Dubai’s landmark aka Tallest Building in the World, Burj Khalifa or an elaborate chase between him and Nyqvist in a brilliant sandstorm or a high-octane climax in a sleek parking lot (of what is Vancouver pretending to be Mumbai), Ghost Protocol, in all its IMAX glory, has its bright points. Right from Hunt’s fabulously staged escape from a Russian prison, a slight tribute to The Great Escape, till the time they get to India, the daredevilry fest keeps it fast and furious.Brad Bird, for most part, lends Ghost Protocol a sense of splendid urgency with fast-moving impulses and ambitious set pieces but lacks the smarts to wholly approve.

Mission Impossible Ghost Protocol is a pacey action thriller that doesn’t look over its shoulder, especially in the Dubai scenes. When in action, ‘past his prime’ aren’t words you would apply to Tom Cruise. Ghost Protocol, instead, is a first-rate action movie with sequences that are at the same time, unlike John Woo’s sequel, not too stupid and over-the-top. Also, the film is less of a one-man show with each member, given the delicateness of the operation, contributing in their own way towards the cause.Ghost Protocol breathes new life into the franchise and piques the interest with an expert touch throughout. This is one sequel not to be disavowed by fans.

What’s Good: A few action and stunt sequences; the performances of Tom Cruise and Simon Pegg; the scale of the film.What’s Bad: The lacklustre script; the slow pace of the drama.
Verdict: Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol is an average fare but it will do above-average business at the Indian box-office due to the heavy promotion and the Mission: Impossible brand name.Watch or Not?: Watch it for the stunts but do not expect it to be as good as the earlier films in the Mission: Impossible series.

Luckily for Tom Cruise, Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol is one of his finest action flicks, just what’s needed to potentially restore some of this fallen star’s box-office bankability.For all the complexity of the action and gimmicks, Bird and screenwriters André Nemec and Josh Appelbaum (executive producers on Abrams’ “Alias”) wisely tell a simple, good-guys-against-bad-guys story.Whatever the movie’s shortcomings, director Bird more than compensates with a bullet train of action and an arsenal of cool gadgets.

What makes Tom Cruise run — run harder and run faster, leaping from one building and dangling off another, the world’s tallest — as he does to exhausting, unnerving effect in “Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol,” his latest exercise in extreme performance? The fourth in the franchise, this “Mission” has a solid cast, including a notable new co-star in Jeremy Renner; a new director, Brad Bird; and a story that’s as nonsensical as any in the series. Mostly, though, it has Mr. Cruise hurtling through the movie as if his life depended on it,Unexpectedly, though, his age and inescapable gravitas work for “Ghost Protocol,” partly because they invest the outrageous stunts with a real sense of risk.

Ratings:2.5/5 Reviewer:Suprateek Chatterjee Site:Mid Day

what it lacks is heart and a coherent story with plausible character motivations. The script by first-timers Josh Applebaum and Andre Nemec crams explosions and movie references aplenty (there are nods to several of Cruise’s past movies, from the previous Mission: Impossible films to Minority Report) but abandons logic.This movie is a money-spinning entertainer. With Bird at the helm, however, we expected an iconic action film with a strong emotional resonance. In that regard, this film is a failure.
