Movie Storyline (courtesy of http://movies.yahoo.com/movie/mission-impossible-ghost-protocol-2011/)
Blamed for the terrorist bombing of the Kremlin, IMF operative Ethan Hunt is disavowed along with the rest of the agency when the President initiates “Ghost Protocol”. Left without any resources or backup, Ethan must find a way to clear his agency’s name and prevent another attack. To complicate matters further, Ethan is forced to embark on this mission with a team of fellow IMF fugitives whose personal motives he does not fully know.
My Review (courtesy of me)
Okay, so I will be honest and say that I had no idea that this was a mission impossible movie… LOL. Yes, I am being serious. I haven’t followed along with all the mission impossible movies over the years. I saw an early one or two many years ago but that was it. Not sure why I haven’t followed along with them all, I like action, but I never did.
I was at the Redbox one night looking for something to rent and the title caught my eye and so did the cover (or movie poster). So I rented it. I figured my hubby would enjoy the action.
When I realized it was a Mission Impossible movie I was a little nervous because I was afraid I wouldn’t know what was going on but I did. What little bit I needed caught up on the movie told me.
I enjoyed this movie, I liked the action and the stunts… yeah, some of them weren’t necessarily believable but they were fun to watch. I liked the cast of characters, they made a good team were funny to watch.
Tom Cruise did a good job in this movie. He slips into disguises and costumes well, and he seems to be able to match his personality with whatever disguise he is wearing.
I can’t compare this movie to the previous Mission Impossible movies because as I said I haven’t seen them, LOL, but after watching this one I can say that I probably will watch any movies in this series that come out.
You would like this movie if you like action, adventure, some globe trotting, cool settings and impossible situations.
There you have it. My opinion.
So have you seen the Mission Impossible movies, what do you think about them?
