Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol

An installment of the franchise that focuses on the different team members of the IMF overcoming their personal obstacles to save the organization and the world at large.

No Plan. No Backup. No Choice. 

The entire Impossible Missions Force is shut down under implications of involvement in a global terrorist plot that could lead to a new world war. Ghost Protocol is initiated and a small unit of the disavowed IMF agents must find a way to clear the organization's name and, with limited resources, stop the threat that framed them. If they fail, the landscape of the globe could be changed forever.

Ethan Hunt is the leader of the rogue team of disavowed IMF agents who must put aside his personal demons to take point on a mission that could mean the obliteration of the world's super powers in global nuclear war. Jane Carter is an IMF field agent who must put aside her vendetta against the assassin who killed her fellow agent to help track down missing nuclear missile launch codes. Benji Dunn is a new IMF technical field agent who has just been promoted from technician to field operative and is eager to prove his worth to Ethan in his new working capacity. William Brandt is the IMF Secretary's chief analyst, but it is his skill as a former IMF field agent and the reason for him leaving the field that may hinder the operation. Anatoly Sidorov is the Russian Intelligence operative who has been tasked with bringing in Ethan Hunt and his accomplices for the crimes committed against Russia on Russian soil.

Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol is an espionage thriller that blends humor with action and tense situations to create an entertaining movie watching experience. If you noticed in my character synopsis, I did not mention the main bad guy of the movie or his accomplice. The reason for this is because the characters of the Russian nuclear strategist Kurt Hendricks & his right hand man Marius Wistrom are not as important as you would think. The meat and potatoes of this action spy yarn are the individual members of this rogue team of the Impossible Missions Force and their different motivations for the success of this extremely dangerous assignment. To say that this movie crackles with excitement is to do it a disservice because from the scene on the Burj Khalifa tower to the product placement of the BMW i8 concept vehicle, I have to admit that everything worked. Brad Bird can consider his first effort in directing a live action film a success, but I think everyone will agree that we were really waiting for his sequel to The Incredibles. I rate this movie a rating of 4 out of 5. This must be experienced in the theater because it is worth it.
