Mission Impossible 4: Ghost Protocol
Anyone who has already watched Mission Impossible 4: Ghost Protocol would have notice that Mission Impossible 4 is a little bit different from the previous three Mission Impossible(s). I am not sure why there are many critics on Tom Cruise acting, but to me, he is ok. I mean, I know a lot of times, they are saying that Mission Impossible is like talking about himself, but I really beg to differ. Mission Impossible is not really about Tom Cruise alone, I mean he is the leader, he do most of the dangerous work, but behind him is a group of capable secret agents who can support him in all the missions.
Anyway, back to Mission Impossible 4: Ghost Protocol. The story started with a chase on a roof in one of a building in Budapest and the agent look so cool when he jumped down and look upwards to shoot the chasers.....but however, was later assassinated by a female assassin.
Then we have Ethan Hunt break a prison from Russia with the help of IMF agents and proceed to accept a mission to infiltrate the secret Moscow Kremlin archives and locate files identifying Cobalt. However, halfway through the mission, someone broadcasts across the IMF frequency alerting the Russians to Hunt's team and then blow up Kremlin, to put the blame on America, specifically to the IMF.
After the death by explosion of their boss, Hunt and co know they are on their own as rogue agents though, as usual in this series, they never seem to suffer from any shortage of money or hi-tech gadgetry.
Well, we all know what happens next. The team has to come up with a plan to rescue their original mission, coupled with the fact that the one that they are dealing is an extremist who plans to bomb up the whole world, the team has to act fast.
There are a lot of things in the movie that I actually really like......like the hazardous climb up the tallest building in Dubai, the climatic fight in the multi storey in Mumbai, the chase inside the sandstorm. What I like is the fact that Ethan Hunt sometimes will make mistake and knock his head at the hotel's window when he try to jump in after the climb. It just shows that Ethan Hunt is still human after all. Do watch out for these scene.
