Mission Impossible Ghost Protocol MarketBOB Imax Movie Review

Published by Craig Forgrave
This mission is impossible, to make Tom Cruise into our favorite action movie star again but damn if this isn’t the greatest action thriller of the year! You don’t have to choose to accept this mission, but if you do, you’ll love it (and if you IMAX it, it will blow you away).

Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol is the best action thriller of the year. It is Bond without the silly fantasy, Bourne without the jerky camera work and Tom Cruise without the smirk and pretty boy looks.

isthe best action thriller of the year. It isBond without the silly fantasy, Bournewithout the jerky camera work andTom Cruise without the smirk andpretty boy looks.Add in the IMAX theater projection of big picture and big sound and youhave the greatest movie experience of 2011. Forget3D, forget everything you hate about sequels, forgetall the Tom Cruise star baggage and, most of all,forget all your stereotypical spy genre plot twists andgo see this movie.Previous
 Mission Impossible
movies suffered fromtoo many impossible stunts and too many ridiculousplots. However, this franchise has two critical giftsfor audiences that, if respected and done credibly,

will deliver magic. One is the MI music, thatoutstanding Lalo Schifrin theme that pulsatessuspense with every beat. Second is the set-up for
Ethan Hunt’s
missions (should he choose to acceptthem) and the self-destruct timer on the message.This one-two combo of music and mission statement just plain rocks the house down. These twoelements set-up each movie to succeed, and althoughthey have done well at the box office
, they’ve been
plagued by ridiculous plots and over-the-top stunts.Now, finally, and perhaps we have Bond and Bourneto thank for this grittier, saner re-tooling of the
 Mission Impossible
franchise with
Ghost Protocol 
.It is still a vast, complicated, globe-trotting kaboom-apalooza of a film but at the core, it is all aboutindividuals wrestling over papers, briefcases andsatellites; these McGuffins easy to track as they gofrom good guy to bad guy to good guy as the worldhangs in the balance.Brad Bird, who directed
Up
and
Toy Story 3
, getsreal actors to jump in front of his camera for the firsttime and he delivers a fast-paced, credible andvisually clever film of frenetic beauty. We have
unexpected twists, spy tricks we’ve never seen
before and locations that add a visual grounding forthe action.
Finally, I can’t stress how much the IMAX
technology added to my enjoyment of this film.Soaring over Budapest, bombs exploding and music

Craig Forgrave added this note
The first weekend of 2012 went to The Devil Inside, a ultra-cheap horror flick which surprised everyone except those who see our whole world reduced to good and evil fighting for possession of our souls and pocketbooks. Ghost Protocol stayed strong at #2.
Craig Forgrave added this note
MI:Ghost Protocol remains #1 as 2011 ends, and tops the $200 million mark at the box office. Now, our mission is to have a better year than the one just ended, even if it feels like Mission Impossible. Let's beat the odds just like the Team in this movie. All the best for 2012! Happy New Year! MarketBOB (Craig Forgrave)
