The movie has super potential to bind the viewer from the opening reels till the climax. Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol is the movie that lets the viewer take it back home along and that’s the beauty of the making of this highly-tech saga! The viewer literally yearns for more once the movie winds up. There is no sign of yawning, tensed wrinkles on the face or any kind of facial anger expressions (which comes on the face when the moviegoer has to see a badly made product on screen) on the viewers’ face at all. Reason? Well, it is obvious one – that the movie is well-executed with great story, superbly and creatively penned script, catchy dialogues, brilliant visual effects, eye-pleasing and luminously done action and so on! What else, a viewer can want from a movie that is already giving a lot to enjoy with!
Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol talks about a high profile IMF who is wrongly accused of exploding a bomb at Kremlin. The President, in turn, commences a ghost protocol (no protection) and the agent Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) and his team get accused of the placement of the bomb to attempt to provoke the world nuclear war. Now they have to clear their names from the terrorism accusations. To do so, he and his team do whatsoever they can by utilizing the every high-tech technique available with them. They are now on their mission and if they get caught, the entire world would be in a big problem. Ethan and team have to save the globe from Cobalt (Michael Nygvist) who likes to begin the nuclear war.
In the series of Mission Impossible, action has been the main ingredient being offered to the viewers. And this is what the cinegoer likes to relish with since the outset. But the action, which has been placed in this new episode of Mission Impossible, is what captures the soul of the viewers from tip to toe getting them mesmerized and enthralled utterly. It is like a super roller-coaster ride for the viewer that literally does not leave any inch of moment to relax and sit back rather it keeps boiling the blood in veins from the opening till the end.
Tom Cruise, as usual, is on his mission to save the entire globe. The man is alone, no one is on his side even not the government, he just has his team along and his skills to doll up the breath-taking action sequences and his super luck that turns the impossible to possible.
His team comprises of carter (Paula Patton), Brandt (Jeremy Renner) and Benji (Simon Pegg). Carter, where does the super action stunts and good acting, also shows off the glamour in plenty. The humor portion has been handed to Benji whereas Brandt appears to be an analyst. It is a winning combination that makes Ethan much strapping to combat with the evils.
The execution is simply marvelous. Brad Bird deserves quality and distinction marks for doing this job with finesse. The script is fantastic and very novel. The novelty is the life of the script that makes the viewers happy. Josh Appelbaum and André Nemec are the creative head behind the screenplay of the movie. The cinematography is really magnum opus. The world locales have been captured with such finesse. The jumping scene of Tom Cruise from Burj Khalifah in Dubai is superlative and really breath-ceasing. The editing is classy, since every frame appears perfect.
Tom Cruise, once again, has told the world that he still can rule the scene with his classy acting skills and dare devil action stunts. He is a class in himself. Paula Patton is ravishing, glamorous, sexy and brilliant actress. Jeremy Renner does classy act to allure the audiences. Simon Pegg is watchable, he enacts the part adroitly. Anil Kapoor (from Bollywood industry) looks great as a playboy Brij Nath and his sequence with Patton is a treat to watch. He portrays the character in his usual ease and that’s the beauty of the actor. Rest of the cast is awesome.
Final Verdict by the Critic
Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol is brilliantly made movie with powerful script, creative direction, power-packed performances and dare devil-eye pleasing stunts. It’s a MUST watch!
