What’s up guys? I know I haven’t posted in a while. It’s been kind of a busy past few weeks at work but I finally got some time to catch my breath. Last night I was able to watch Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol at my local IMAX theater. For those that are unaware, an IMAX theater screen is enormous and added value to the overall mission impossible experience. Also, we were able to watch an extended trailer for The Dark Knight Rises. At first, I thought it was the prologue, but upon further investigation, I became aware it was just an extended trailer. Trailer or prologue, it was still awesome and I am very excited to see The Dark Knight Rises this summer.
On to the review: In short, I really enjoyed MIGP. It was basically action packed from start to finish. It was similar to a COD game in that it was one set piece to the next with action and gadgets mixed in. Some parts were funny/corny but did not take away from the overall tone of the movie. Towards the end, it starts to get unbelievable, but if you take MIGP for what it’s worth—a high octane action film—you will not be disappointed. The plot is thin but the action is not.
Tom Cruise is funny and charismatic. Jeremy Renner is a good change of pace and equally engaging. Paula Patton is pretty nice to look at. And Simon Peg is funny as usual.
Overall Grade: 9.0 out of 10
Go watch it, it’s worth making the trek to the movie theater
