Academy Award-winning director Brad Bird (Ratatouille) makes his live-action feature directorial debut with the fourth installment of the massively successful Mission Impossible series. The Kremlin has been bombed, and the blame has fallen on the IMF. As a result, the president initiates Ghost Protocol, and accuses Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) and his team of placing the bomb in an attempt to incite a global nuclear war. Now, in order to clear the IMF of terrorism charges, Ethan assembles a new team to uncover the truth by using every high-tech trick in the book. But this time they're on their own, and should they be caught, the entire world could be plunged into a nightmare from which there is no waking up. Jeremy Renner, Paula Patton, and Simon Pegg co-star. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

This movie has the required action stunts in it - the usual everything is working against them but they pull it off - and I really DO enjoy Simon Pegg in this movie (loved him in Run Fat Boy Run)... but I was less than thrilled. And really, who speeds along in the middle of a thick sandstorm where you can't even see 2 feet in front of your face and chances of hitting another vehicle or person are high? What genius thought that up? I didn't feel vested in this story or characters - it never "caught" me - it was just like a series of action segments put together. Maybe it's because I don't like Tom Cruise's acting in general, I don't know. For me this was just ok. If you watch it strictly for the explosions etc, you will probably like it.
