Star Mission Impossible 4: Ghost Protocol

So, me and my sister just finished seeing the movie MI4. Hmm, what can be said about this movie? If you've seen the other Mission Impossible movies, you already know what to expect. Flashy fights, fancy gadgets, saving the world at the last possible moment, nothing really jumped out during this one. Its a decent action flick I guess, but as most sequels go, it can't compare to the original. Still, worth a watch.

So yeah... anyone else seen it yet? :P

Oh, I saw some footage about how they filmed the tower scene... I am sooo glad I am not an actor. haha

i saw it like 3 weeks ago and ive been telling everyone to watch it. mainly the peeps who are sick and tired of the current bond movies and crave for a more traditional bond spy like movie.
i was shocked at how good ghost protocol was and i hate tom cruise and the last 3 boring uninspired MI movies. This one really had a bond fuzzy felling all it needed was the 007 music. It filled a gap that craig could not fill.

Default Mission Impossible - Ghost Protocol

I am a big fan of this movie, although I agree with Locke that the first film is the best in the series. This is currently the best film I've seen all year (and it was the first) and I'm anxiously awaiting the blu-ray release.

I am actually surprised to see some positive responses to this movie. Since its been a bit since I saw it, I have to agree that it wasn't so bad as maybe I made it sound... maybe I just had high expectations going in, after seeing the trailer and such. I would love to have access to some of their gadgets... as long as they work better then those gloves :P Being able to tap into any camera system / jail / etc could also prove very fun.

Do you think we'll see a Mission Impossible 5? My bets are on yes. It seems lately any movie they can push another sequel out, they do. Almost like we've run out of original ideas.

I wouldn't be surprised to see yet another installment, although I could live without one. This is one of those series that can keep going (like James Bond) and you can always have fresh cast members as new MI agents. Paula Patton was one of my favorites so far.

I liked it quite a bit.
Obviously you know how it all ends, more or less, but the journey was fun to watch.


And Simon Pegg is always great.

I couldn't complain. It was an enjoyable time. Nothing more, nothing less.

I'll probably have to stop by Best Buy after work this Tuesday to pick up the "Best Buy Exclusive" blu-ray edition.

Yeah, I watched it last week - I thought it was good. Definitely better than MI:3. I thought that one was meh.

I do agree with Locke on the gadgets. I would love to be able to get access to the cameras and such, but my problem as an engineer is the reliability of the gadgets, esp the gloves. If they had a chance to fail like that it would have never made it out of my lab. I was also continually wondering 'I really do wonder where they keep the batteries in some of these things? Something like those gloves would love to use a lot of juice'.

Please excuse my ramblings. I guess I think out aloud to much

But yes, good film. Even if it had Tom Cruise. He's a pretty good actor imho, but as a person... well i was told 'if you don't have anything nice to say...'
