Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol
I give it a 4 out of 5 stars, if you take off your thinking cap about how unrealistic the show is. If you sit down, enjoy it, and forget about how the magic was done, then I would give it a 4 out of 5. Maybe, I am too much of a realist, for a show like this one. But, I did enjoy it. And, it does leave you on the edge of your seat, several times. If you do put on your thinking cap while in the theatre, maybe a 3 out of 5.
The end battle for the briefcase with some nuclear codes in it, was an alright one. But, I found it dragged on too far. It seemed like it would never end, and it seemed it was nearly impossible for Ethan to get the briefcase, several times during the scene. It is just a bloody briefcase! How hard is it, for a young Ethan to have such, such, such, a hard time against a not so elite looking criminal. Even the race to get to it, seemed, nearly futile, as he had to think for a good ten seconds if it was worth the fight, driving his BMW electric super car concept. At the other end, it seemed nearly impossible to get some power from a breaker to all of the super computers.
All in all, I have to be honest. It lives up to the title, many times, in the show. Nearly, impossible. It will leave you leaving the theater wondering, was all that stuff possible... Beautiful shots of Dubai, and the lifestyles of the rich and famous in Mumbai, are all in this flicks reel... Have a good night, Till then..
