My Rating:

  Wait for the Blu-ray

This evening I saw the movie Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol at AMC Cinemas, Pacific Place, Admiralty, Hong Kong. One of the movies from my Must See Movies list, and the following is my movie review.

It has been 5 years since the last edition in this version of the Mission: Impossible franchise. Unlike the previous two movies this one is worth the wait. Again it stars Tom Cruise as “Ethan Hunt“, only Simon Pegg returns from the previous edition, Mission: Impossible III. The favorites: Ving Rhames and Michelle Monaghan, also earn cameo roles in this movie.

Without leaving fans hanging from previous editions or loose new audiences, it continues the story from the last movie in the franchise, and slowly develops the characters we are not familiar with.

In the past movies I complain that they lost the “clever trickeries” of the original TV shows, happy to say that this movie brings back all the cleverness while retaining the light and appropriate use of technologies throughout the movie. One exception is the Minority Report style screen in the BMW Vision EfficientDynamics that really did not serve any purpose other than nostalgia for Cruise fans.

Overall it was an exciting and action pack movie that will give anyone an entertaining movie outing, not just the Cruise fans.
