I’ve seen the trailer of Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol before and I was really intrigued! Considering how old Tom Cruise is, he looked so awesome still. I wondered if he could still carry an action film with him top billing it.
I rarely watch movies these days. So I was glad that the Smart iPhone 4S launch included a free screening of the 4th installment of Mission Impossible!
Tom Cruise plays Ethan Hunt, leader of the Impossible Missions Force (IMF). He has to lead his team to track down a terrorist who has gained access to Russia’s nuclear launch codes. They have to stop the guy from striking. However, due to circumstances, the IMF has been disowned by the US government and Ghost Protocol has been invoked. Now, the team has to find a way to stop the disaster without any help or support from the US government and at the same time, find a way to clear their name.
At the start of the movie, I saw a familiar face… a handsome hunk… and he is Josh Holloway of Lost! If Tom Cruise has to stop doing the Mission Impossible franchise and there’s a need to continue it, I would definitely wish they would pick Josh to replace him. Gosh, Josh Holloway is such eye-candy and he actually looked great for the part! He can either be the next Ethan Hunt or James Bond for that matter. Well, I don’t care! I just wanna see Josh Holloway on screen again 😀
The movie has tons of action but I admit they are a bit impossible to happen in our world. I guess we do know that it’s really just a movie. But what the heck, I watched the movie to be entertained. Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol has the right amount of action, suspense, adventure and even sense of humor. I love that we were laughing the whole time. I never thought they put in as much humor as action in Mission: Impossible – 4th Protocol but I truly welcome it.
Many people have been asking if they need to watch the first three Mission Impossible movies before catching the 4th installment. I say it doesn’t matter as I myself have only watched 1 out of the 3 previous movies but I still understood Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol. So go on and watch as even though the movie wasn’t realistic, it was entertaining 🙂
My Rating for Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol: 3.5 out of 5 stars.
