Tom Cruise reprises role as Ethan Hunt

While there has been a lot of negativity and criticism around Tom Cruise during the past few years, he proved in his most recent movie that the buzz is not true.

“Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol” not only delivers in terms of action, but the script written for this movie is great.

Most of the time when you’re dealing with a third or fourth installment in a movie franchise, it does not live up to the hype of the movies before it.

Not only does “Ghost Protocol” live up to the hype, it is now the greatest installment in the movies’ franchise.

The movie was not trying to sell off the name; clearly it was proving that it had a lot left in the tank.

Another thing that made this movie click was it felt in place with the movies before it.

There was a seven–year gap between movies, but the plot made sense and matched up with the prior movies.

The cast of actors all showed great chemistry performing with each other.

Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) begins the movie in jail, but with the help of his good friend Benji Dunn (Simon Pegg), he is able to escape.

The opening sequence of the movie is nothing short of amazing and really gets you hyped with a big action scene and the Mission Impossible theme music playing in the background.

Once Hunt escapes from prison, the action really picks up as he is called to infiltrate the secret Moscow Kremlin archives and locate files identifying “Cobalt,” the code name for an Impossible Missions Force agent.

During this mission, Hunt and Dunn have to escape a building once they are suspected of breaking in.

After they are able to escape, a building is blown up and Hunt becomes the main suspect of the attack. After the attack, the United States president issues “Ghost Protocol,” which blames Hunt for the bombings.

The movie is soon joined by another person who sets out to help Carter complete this mission: Jane Carter (Paula Patton). Patton and Cruise make the perfect combination of partners.

Patton is full of action and is a good complement to Cruise and the role he plays in this movie.

The movie continues with more action, but the best scene in the movie is when Cruise is trying to move up floors on the outside of a huge building.

Hunt soon encounters a man by the name of William Brandt (Jeremy Renner). This is where the movie does a great job keeping you on the edge of your seat, guessing what is going to happen next.

There were numerous times where the viewer might think the movie is over, but in reality, it’s just getting started.

‘Ghost Protoco’l is the complete movie package, with more twists and turns than you can imagine.

If you are looking for a fun time at the movies, ‘Ghost Protocol’ is the movie for you.
