Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol.......

Saw the new 'Impossible movie two nights ago with my better half. Call it what you want....Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol or Mission Impossible 4, the movie still kicks a**

Personally, I feel that this movie trumps the first 3 movies easily. I mean I really liked MI:2 better than the 1st or the 3rd installments...but after seeing Ghost Protocol, I think this new film takes the cake! Not only it brought back the excitement last seen in MI:2, I also think that the action sequences were excellent. This was a very 'painful' movie indeed for Ethan Hunt!

Truthfully, the film had the air of James Bond about it. Cool gadgets, action sequences, great acting and good humour rolled into one. It was kinda cool too to see the likes of Simon Pegg (Shaun of The Dead) and Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye from The Avengers movie!) providing the humour, even if not intentional, to the film.

Heard that Mr Cruise did all of his stunts himself. If it's really true then it's really impressive since one of the highlight of the whole film is the scene where Ethan Hunt  scaled up the highest building in the world (man that was a heart-stopper!!!). Word is, it's really Cruise we get to see in action way up high on the 130th floor, about a third of a mile off the ground (*shudder*). Ok, no more spoilers.....just go out and catch the film already!!! 

The Rebel's verdict: 4.5 out of 5 stars!
