Review: Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol

Directed By: Brad Bird

Starring: Tom Cruise, Jeremy Renner, Paula Patton, Simon Pegg.

Rating:   Running Time: 133 Minutes.

I remember as a kid watching repeats of the original Mission Impossible television series from the 60’s, with Peter Graves as Jim Phelps. When the decision to remake the series was made in the 90’s (after a revived series starring Graves some years before in 1988), it was decided to instead make a movie as a star vehicle for Tom Cruise, under the direction of the experienced Brian De Palma. Released in 1996, the first Mission Impossible was a success, taking over $180m at the us box office (over $450m worldwide) and spawned sequels helmed by equaly experienced directors John Woo (in 2000, taking over $560m worldwide) and JJ Abrams (in 2006, taking just under $400m worldwide). Now we have a fourth movie with Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, directed by animation director Brad Bird in his live action directorial debut. Read the rest of this entry

Trailer: Mission Impossible Ghost Protocol

The IMF is shut down when it’s implicated in the bombing of the Kremlin, causing Ethan Hunt and his new team to go rogue to clear their organization’s name.

 

First Impression: From the trailer this is going to be the usual Mission Impossible film lot’s of action and some big set piece’s however with the last films producer back on board J.J.Abrams and one of the original Simpsons writers Brad Bird in the directors chair we might have a good film here.

We just have to wait until Boxing Day to find out if it is any good.
