Accept This Mission, Or Be Disavowed.



Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol.
Not a review.
Your mission, if you choose to accept it,
Is to go watch this movie.
Because it's the best Mission Impossible movie yet.



WHAT??!!???
A DECENT MISSION IMPOSSIBLE MOVIE YOU SAY??!!??
AFTER ALL THOSE THREE DUMBASS TOM CRUISE MOVIES??!!???
WHERE EVERYTHING IS ABOUT TOM CRUISE?
IMPOSSIBRU!



Well, believe it.
Turns out it's NOT impossible to make a decent M:I movie after all.
All it took to make an impossible mission possible was an Incredible director,
An Iron Giant of a director, you might say.
One with an affinity for talking, cooking rats.
And for Tom Cruise to share the limelight,
And not let his ego take over the ENTIRE movie.



Why did it take FOUR Movies for them to realize it?
That Mission Impossible has always been about THE TEAM.
Did you ever see Jim Phelps jumping off buildings?
Or do everything by himself?
No, because he has a TEAM.
MI4 works because Ethan USES his team properly
And it's a pretty decent team too.



There's Jeremy "Hawkeye" Ratner,
There's Paula Patton as the token hot chick,
She's tough but pretty hot too.
Cleavage rating: 8
Oh, and best of all, there's Simon Pegg!
He's doing his whole Scotty tech geek thing again,
But he makes the movie a lot funnier!



The action quite good wor,
Some parts a bit kua chiong,
But still pretty exciting and fun!
The building climbing scene was damn good too,
And Tom Cruise isn't as self-absorbed as before,
So it's a lot more fun!



Yup, you should definitely accept this mission,
It's got great action,
Some decent laughs,
A story that is not rubbish,
AND it's the closest we've got to an actual MI movie so far.
This post will self-destruct in... nah I'm keeping it.

I don't remember a single thing about the Maggie Q one. That's how forgettable it was. LOL

I thought the first one was quite decent, interesting plot re espionage and reasonable action...the second was the flimsiest, not helped by the director.

The thing about this one that bothers me (from the trailer at least) is that it seems to rehash everything done before, in terms of action sequences, but I'll give it a chance because of Brad Bird.

Also - did you catch the Dark Knight Rises prequel? Assuming you watched this in IMAX (is it only showing in IMAX?).
