Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol (2011)


Tom Cruise
Jeremy Renner
Simon Pegg
Paula Patton

Directed by Brad Bird

Distributed by Paramount Pictures

This fourth installment in the Mission Impossible series is directed by Brad Bird (The Incrediblesand Ratatouille), who is making his debut in a live action movie. Probably used to the realm of the impossible as he makes use of all form of visual effects possible to make this movie keep you jerking in excitement on your sit.

J.J Abrams, who directed the third Installment, produced the movie and introduced some emotions into the action genre, emotions that Bird hardly used in the making of this flick. Abrams called in his writers André Nemec and Josh Appelbaum from the series Alias in the making of the script and the introduction of Simon Pegg added the required humor to keep you smiling here and there.

Ethan Hunt is back the intro scene of him breaking out of a Moscow jail, and the opening sequence of credits in the beginning, masked with colourful CGI effects with the theme song playing at the back makes you smile as you whisper to yourself, “M I”.

The movie features a lot of globetrotting, one in particular that catches the eye and is worth mentioning happens in Dubai. We get to see scenes of Tom Cruise as Ethan Hunt performing some daring stunts where we see him scale the Burj Khalifa (the tallest building in the world).
Mind you he did all these scenes without a stunt double.

What is Ghost Protocol about?

Well I can tell it is not about masterful acting that is for sure, as the actors seem to be either running, jumping or falling, and of cause fighting.

Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) is needed by the IMF, to stop a nuclear war crazed psycho Kurt Hendricks (Michael Nyqvist). Ethan was sent to Kremlin (after they broke him out of jail in Moscow) with a team to steal Nuclear Codes. His team consisted of Benji Dunn (Simon Pegg) and Jane Carter (Paula Patton) and their jobs were simple, infiltrate Kremlin and steal the codes. The team failed after being out smarted by Hendricks and someone blows up Kremlin, leaving Ethan and his team to take the blame. The president issues a Ghost Protocol dissolving the IMF.

Ethan meets with the Secretary who was with his chief analyst William Brandt (Jeremy Renner), so as to discuss the way forward. On their journey their car gets shot at, killing the secretary and leaving Ethan and William to run for safety.
William joins the team and they fly to Dubai to stop the Nuclear Codes from changing hands.
