Ethan Hunt is back for the fourth time and must work with his time rouge, when IMF goes into ghost protocol . . . meaning none of them even exist anymore.
We have come to pretty much know what to expect with MI films now and you cannot really go wrong if you want an action film to watch and enjoy. I have to admit that I wasn’t really expecting to enjoy this film as much as I did, yet I found it very engaging from start to finish.
The fast pace is very good to the story line which does not allow the audience to take much of a breath throughout, we have explosions, jumping out of buildings and car chases. All of this with a very strong plot with many twists and turns along the way. I wasn’t entirely sure which way everything was going to go, which can only be a good thing. We wouldn’t want the whole plot to be too obvious.
Along with the action, we get a very good mix of comedy with some brilliant one liners and exchanges which mainly involved Simon Pegg. I don’t want to give too much away about the plot but Ethan’s wife is a main focus point and a very important part from start to finish. Jeremy Renner impressed me yet again and seems to be going from strength to strength will each role he is cast in.
The team must prevent war between Russia and the USA after Ethan was set up to be involved in something he actually wasn’t. This lead to being followed by Russian’s making his mission even more difficult to complete. But the war they are trying to stop just happens to be a nuclear war! Can they get it all stopped in time? Well to find that out you’ll have to watch for yourself!
It really was such an entertaining film, I think the fact knowing Tom Cruise done the stunts himself especially climbing up The Burj Khalifa tower which is the tallest building in the world. I also loved the use of many Apple products, iPhone, iPad, Macbook Air! I think we can tell who has the edge on product placement!
