Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol review

I wanted to forget the bad experience of watching MI:3, memories of the rabbit foot were very irritating. Thankfully I was not disappointed with Mission impossible 4. The story is fast paced, takes little time to pick up at the start of the movie. Movie plot is not extraordinary, save the world from a missile launch is becoming an overboard patriotic plot with lot of movies and even video games these days.

The cast does justice to the plot, Simon Pegg as Benji Dunn has enough arsenal of muted antics to bring out the laughter for you, and yes in a small role Anil kapoor also delivers on his "Jhakas" persona without even actually saying it. Tom cruise was lot subtle in his role this time around to do away with his antics from the last movie. The story manages to hold your interest however I am still awaiting a movie like MI:2 with the kind of stylish action that was orchestrated by John Woo, and yes a fitting background score from Hans Zimmer made that movie very memorable for me.

Action and thrills falls little short in my opinion towards the end of the movie when it was required the most, and as a foe to Agent Ethan Hunt the role of crazy nuclear strategist played by Michael Nyqvist as Kurt Hendricks does not look very menacing or threatning in any way. Watch it for once, you would not regret.
