Product Description

The second half of the first decade of the 21st century has been kind of tough for Tom Cruise. That's tough in a way over and above the hardship of living the legacy of one of history's top movie stars--a job more demanding than any mere mortal could imagine. But after two fruitful collaborations with Steven Spielberg (Minority Report and War of the Worlds), his stature took a beating from the one-two hits of those wacky PR gaffes and that string of relative box-office disappointments (Lions for Lambs, Valkyrie, Knight and Day), which seemed to start with the third installment of his Mission: Impossible franchise in 2006. It's hard to say with a straight face that taking in only $398 million worldwide is a disappointment, but it was a low for the series, which some later saw as a prelude to his potentially dimming stardom. But on the cusp of turning 50, it looks like Tom Cruise has put the licking behind him and entered a new phase of self-conception with an upcoming array of roles, starting with a more maturely controlled version of superspy Ethan Hunt in the sleek and supercharged Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol. The things Cruise has done right in M: I part four include toning down his youthful, arrogant preening and letting his castmates share more of the spotlight (Jeremy Renner, Paula Patton, and Simon Pegg all have some terrifically shiny moments). He also lets the unique creative vision of director Brad Bird shine through in a first live-action outing for the acclaimed helmer of Iron Giant, The Incredibles, and Ratatouille. Still looking much younger than his years (that hair! those pecs! those abs!), Cruise is playing more age-appropriately, letting a little wisdom and grace seep into his charisma so the wattage of his mere presence smolders a little deeper. It's a nice nod to a graying generation that says you can get older and still be cool. All that is not to say he doesn't play up his action-star chops to the max. In a mostly inconsequential narrative arc that has something to do with purloined nuclear launch codes, an important metal briefcase, satellite uplinks, and global annihilation that leaps from Moscow to Dubai to Mumbai, Cruise is as dangerously nimble as he has ever been. He dangles one-handed from the tallest building in the world, bounds off ledges, springs out of speeding vehicles, tumbles and careens up and down the levels of an automated parking garage, and generally sprints and jumps his way across the movie with only a scratch or bruise to show for it. Also on the outlandish upside is a happily stereotypical villain straight out of Connery-era Bond and as many bleeding-edge gadgets as the art department techno-geeks could dream up. A running gag is that many of these electronic fantasy tools fail at just the wrong moment, which is part of a larger wink acknowledging how utterly preposterous yet ingeniously conceived this behemoth of a movie really is. The gadgetry is not limited just to the miraculous props. Ghost Protocol employs CGI fakery of the highest order from the sub-industry of effects contractors that ratchet up the standard of computing power and software design, one-upping each successive action-adventure extravaganza. The loving detail that goes into blowing up the Kremlin or rendering a photo-realistic sandstorm erupting across the enhanced skyline of an Oz-like desert city is nothing short of miraculous. What's more astonishing is that Tom Cruise closes the deal with a selling power that's as new and improved as the laminates on his multi-million-dollar teeth. --Ted Fry

Product Description

Synopsis: No plan. No backup. No choice. Agent Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) and his elite team (Jeremy Renner, THE AVENGERS and Simon Pegg, STAR TREK) go underground after a bombing of the Kremlin implicates the IMF as international terrorists. While trying to clear the agency's name, the team uncovers a plot to start a nuclear war. Now, to save the world, they must use every high-tech trick in the book. The mission has never been more real, more dangerous, or more impossible.

5.0 out of 5 stars Predictable, but great fun! May 16 2012
By Derek Draven TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray
'Ghost Protocol' finally manages to strike the perfect Mission Impossible balance between action, drama, intrigue and thriller themes. Once again, Tom Cruise steps into the shoes of super spy Ethan Hunt who is out to save the world from the impending machinations of a raving madman. When an IMF agent is killed while trying to intercept a courier with Russian nuclear launch codes, Hunt is busted out of his undercover stunt in Moscow prison to seek out the identities of "Cobalt," the rogue unit responsible. Hunt leads a team of IMF agents into the Kremlin to retrieve confidential files on Cobalt, but the mission goes awry when someone broadcasts information on an IMF frequency and gives their position away to Russian forces. Hunt and his team narrowly escape the Kremlin, only to watch as it is destroyed by a bomb. This triggers "ghost protocol," a contingency that disavows the entire IMF. Hunt and his team are officially pinned with full blame for the failure of the Kremlin mission, but that is a smokescreen for the real operation: to quietly seek out Cobalt and put a stop to their plans for a nuclear war that they believe will cleanse the Earth for the next stage of human evolution.

It's a hokey plotline, but it sure is a lot of fun! 'Ghost Protocol' marries elements from past Mission Impossible films without falling victim to any of their inherent weaknesses. The film is more understandable and straightforward than MI:1, just as action-packed, but less shallow than MI:2, and nowhere near as dramatic and dark as MI:3. The result is a perfect concoction of impressive action sequences with a smart, snappy storyline that keeps you riveted to your seat as you wait for the next bit of secret agent mumbo jumbo or neat gadget to pop up.

4.0 out of 5 stars More fun than your average summer blockbuster Aug. 28 2014
By K. Gordon TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray
Quite fun, with some very impressive, if improbable action sequences. It's been a while since
I saw a climatic fight sequence go on so long and yet never get boring.

It's a popcorn movie to be sure. The few brief attempts at emotional depth and back-story are
probably the least successful element. The over-all plot feels like a leftover from a 1980's
James Bond film. And it's not a film I can imagine the need to go back to and re-see. I
don't think there are extra layers to be uncovered, and the very nifty stunt and CGI work can't
have the same rush of adrenaline the second time around.

But the action is deftly handled, the tension level high, the images are cool, and I got
caught up in spite of myself. At least in a moment to moment way. As long as I didn't
start up my bad habit of thinking about the 'big picture'.

And I'll be honest, I'm not a 'summer blockbuster action movie' kinda guy. I'm old compared
to the key audience this is aimed at. I'm more at home with the new Woody Allen movie or
some indie drama. So take this review with the appropriate grain of salt. But that said, I
can't deny I had a good time, and smiled lot.

5.0 out of 5 stars Moscow. Mumbai. Dubai. March 22 2012
By L. Power HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray
If you were to ask me which Mission Impossible movie I would like to own, I would have to say MI2. not because it's the best but because it has Thandie Newton, who has an ethereal presence that I love to gape at.

If you were to ask me which movie is the best, I would have to say this one. This is Cruise doing what Cruise does best, pushing the envelope in an action movie. If you're like me, you experience a vivid after image.

In MI1 it's Cruise descending from the ceiling hovering in midair with a cable after he has broken into a secure room. In MI2 there is that image of the motorcycle, with the back wheels up in the air with him flying through the air, and one where for fits and giggles he is hanging by his fingertips from the sheer face of a mountain.

Here, it's definitely the vertigo inducing scene from Dubai, where he has to break into a secure floor, the 134th, if I remember correctly. And as one thing happens things can start to go wrong leading to much finger gripping, and sitting on the edge of your seat excitement. If you are climbing the outside of the worlds tallest building, the last thing you want is a sand storm. There are many memorable scenes in this movie. We have a familiar character from Lost, a beautiful hit woman, an unusual fight in a multi story car park, an entertaining prison break, and an underwater escape.

When we break from the thrills, we have the comic relief, once more provided by Simon Pegg.

I remember a scene early in the movie, where Ethan said he was going to do something, and I thought, "that's impossible." Then I remembered.

It's fair to say that Mission Impossible has hit its stride, it's gotten comfortable, yet still pushing the envelope for those action sequences.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best Mission Impossible? I think so! June 17 2014
By StarterQuest TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I saw the movie in theatres when it came out and thought it was absolutely incredible! In my opinion, the best Mission Impossible in the series - the action is really intense with insane stunts, the storyline is intriguing, the actors all work really well together and the settings are just beautiful to watch on their own. So when I saw Amazon.ca was having a great deal on TV shows & movies, I knew I had to pick it up!

If you love the genre, you'll definitely love this movie!

5/5
