Lists: Action, Adventure, Thriller

Brief Synopsis: "In the 4th installment of the Mission Impossible series, Ethan Hunt (Cruise) and his team are racing against time to track down a dangerous terrorist named Hendricks (Nyqvist), who has gained access to Russian nuclear launch codes and is planning a strike on the United States. An attempt to stop him ends in an explosion causing severe destruction to the Kremlin and the IMF to be implicated in the bombing, forcing the President to disavow them. No longer being aided by the government, Ethan and his team chase Hendricks around the globe, although they might still be too late to stop a disaster."

Bryan Lienesch79 - There is a clear effort here to inject some real comedy -- chiefly on the back of Simon Pegg who has risen to stardom during the eight years since M:I3 -- for the first time in this franchise, putting 'Ghost Protocol' almost in a different genre entirely. Therefore, to compare it to M:I3 -- the best and latest installment of this franchise before 'Ghost Protocol' -- is rather hard to do.

CinemaVisitor Erik75 - Impressive stunts by Tom Cruise, great gadgets and an action-packed storyline as it should be. The comedy elements however are not for me.
