Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) is back to take on yet another impossible mission. No really this one was really impossible. He is sent into the freakin Kremlin to steal (really to secure) nuclear launch codes to keep them out of the hands of a rogue nuclear arms agent Kurt Hendricks (Michael Nyqvist). Well Hendricks beats him to the punch, then blows up the Kremlin! Hunt and his team are blamed and are now enemies number one and need to get out of Russia and track down Hendricks. The president issued Ghost Protocol, which means they have no support, no access to money, and are to return to Washington D.C. to hang for the bombing.Yeah like Hunt is going to let that happen. The chase leads them to Dubai with his new team of Benji Dunn (Simon Pegg), Jane Carter (Paula Patton) and William Brandt (Jeremy Renner). But they still do their jobs and try to put a stop to this madman’s plan to launch a Russian nuke at the U.S. so that they will retaliate and the world ends in a nuclear war. Hendricks plan is so the world will right itself and start a new. Damn, he is like the ultimate eco-terrorist.
This by far was the best of the Mission Impossible series. From the car chases, the shootouts, plot, and of course all the intensity of them trying to pull off their mission made this a very exciting and well done action flick. The two scenes that made the movie for me alone were: Hunt entering the Kremlin and trying to steal the codes and the climbing up the outside of the world’s tallest building in Dubai. Intense stuff could not get enough.
The pace of the movie from start to finish will leave you out of breath just watching all the action, the movie had no lull except the very end. They needed that so they and the viewers could finally rest. High paced action, ass kicking stunts, and finally a good plot made this film very enjoyable. I think you will totally dig this film.
I give this movie 4 Beers!
