Ghost Protocol, I found, managed to pay tribute to the original series a lot more than any of its forebears (not difficult, mind you). There was the opening sequence montage with the fuse, the smoky finish, and though Ethan Hunt's skill set is still very stunt heavy, still some con job sequences like on the show. It did bug me that it was squarely set in MI3 (i.e. Alias Lite) continuity, but the central disavowal did lead to more old school MI stuff than usual as the technology broke down. Tom Cruise is starting to look tired, so it looks like they're grooming Jeremy Renner to take his place as the action hero. He's not a bad choice, if a little over-exposed these days. Paula Patton likewise does the job without being too remarkable. And Simon Pegg is always watchable. Some say this is the best of the franchise and I think I agree. It had the most solid character work to awesome action set piece ratio of them all. Clearer than the first, and less gimmicky than the second.
The best one of the franchise.
Great action, excited actions and chase scenes, the tower scene was fantastic.
The cast was fantastic, everyone matters, every single member of the team is relevant, the story hooked me, the storyline with the Ethan Hunt and Jeremy Renner character and the way that all turned out in the end simply made me happy.
In the end I was satisfied because I saw a great movie.
that hall simulation gadget was way too awesome..
