This mission is impossible, to make Tom Cruise into our favorite action movie star again but damn if this isn’t the greatest action thriller of the year! You don’t have to choose to accept this mission, but if you do, you’ll love it (and if you IMAX it, it will blow you away).
One Word Movie Review: Kaboom-apalooza
Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol is the best action thriller of the year. It is Bond without the silly fantasy, Bourne without the jerky camera work and Tom Cruise without the smirk and pretty boy looks. .
Add in the IMAX theater projection of big picture and big sound and you have the greatest movie experience of 2011. Forget 3D, forget everything you hate about sequels, forget all the Tom Cruise star baggage and, most of all, forget all your stereotypical spy genre plot twists and go see this movie.
The Movie Mood for audiences is Positive. Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol had my mixed audience (male, female, old and young) thrilled from start to end. Even with the premium ticket prices for IMAX, the theater was crowded and enjoying themselves.
MarketBOB’s Movie Review Sentiment Indicators, the GQS (Genre, Quality, Story) rate Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol an emotional BULL. Somehow it seems fitting to end 2011 with a great movie about the most difficult thing to do, yet you suck it up and take on the challenge of getting it done. We live in a world where the solutions seem to be impossible indeed, but perhaps a franchise re-boot like this will help change the mind-set of many who think we’re destined to fail. A mission is only impossible if we accept that it is.
