Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol 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 mission bests the entire preceding trilogy.

While Brad Bird's involvement directing his first live-action film was my main draw, I will admit I had little faith in the film. I underestimated the amount of awe, suspense, thrills, & excitement this film would contain. Each action scene is perfectly paced & kept me on the edge of my seat. the story is easy to follow & doesn't fall prey to any traditional cliches. The video/7.1 audio presentation is top-notch. My only real complaint would be that the switching aspect ratios filmed for the IMAX release are trimmed down to leave the picture seamless. While I appreciate Brad Bird's opinion as an artist, I do believe the film benefited from the scope & depth the IMAX cameras brought to the suspense scenes. The extras in this Best Buy Exclusive are definitely worth the few extra bucks, there are loads of good behind-the-scenes footage. Overall, this is a fantastic release.

Edge of my seat!
Posted by: SEANNov from: Chicago on
It has the best sound I have heard in a long time from a bu ray disc 7.1 Dolby Tru HD WoW! The Picture Quality reminded me why I ever wanted blu ray to begin with. I'm very impressed with this movie. I would say to buy this movie asap, this is a great film period.

A quality blu ray that is light on the features
Posted by: ClintCommander from: UT on
MIGP is my favorite mission impossible movie barely going beyond MI3. I really wasn't expecting it but I was pleasantly surprised with the action and the acting.
If you liked the movie the blu ray is definitely the way to go. Top quality here.
The video looks great with a very sharp, clear, and deep picture with only a scene or two of light fuzz. I would give video a 9/10. The audio work is amazing as well. The dialogue comes in crystal clear and the there are quite a few moments in the movie that gives your bass a workout. The audio direction is fantastic. Just listen when tom is chasing the bad guy through the sandstorm. That really stood out to me. A 10/10 for me for the audio.
I can't really say that I was impressed with the amount of special features that the movie offers, however. There are only a few features that explain a bit on how different parts of the movie were made. What is here, however is quite good and interesting to watch if you're a fan of the movie. I just wanted more. I didn't find a commentary track either which bummed me out.
In short, I would recommend this blu ray to anyone who enjoyed the movie. It has an amazing audio/video presentation that is worth owning. I just wish it had more features.

Good movie, Excellent Blu-ray
Posted by: Smad from: Vancouver, WA on
This is a very good movie with a good cast. Sometimes the M.I. plots just get a little too over the top. The video and audio quality of the blu-ray are absolutely excellent.

Great Action Flick + Digital Copy RIPOFF!
Posted by: DrGeary from: Philadelphia, PA on
The movie is great! Love the action sequences, and flair.
Please do NOT buy this if you have iTunes and want to use the digital copy. The Ultraviolet digital copy is a huge run around.-Ultraviolet is NOT iTunes compatible AND the usual way to get around this, using a Flixster app, is useless since Flixster does not have a contract with Paramount Pictures. Some claim that Flixster will correct this by sending you an iTunes copy- but I contacted them and was told they "don't do that".
If you want a digital copy that works with iTunes, please buy it from iTunes. Don't make my mistake!

A Review To Read.. If You Choose To Accept It..
Posted by: JokerSnk from: Syracuse,NY on
The long wait is finally over as Tom Cruise finally returns to the celluloid to reprise his epic role of the enigmatic IMF agent Ethan Hunt. The brilliance of Mission: Impossible III was marred by the infamous sacking of Tom Cruise by Paramount's owner and movie mogul Sumner Redstone, who blamed Cruise's bizarre sofa-hopping TV antics, and intransigent support of Scientology for movie's relatively poor show at the box office that resulted in losses of up to £75million in revenue. The sordid incident ensured that the wait for the next installment of the franchise had to be a long one. The half a decade lull that ensued saw Cruise's career sunk to a new nadir with movies like Lions for Lambs (2007), Valkyrie (2008), and Knight and Day (2010) failing to impress at the box office, while his contemporaries and coevals continued to tumble records at the box office, attaining new heights of fame and stardom. It is indeed ironic that Cruise's most impressive show in this interim has been his well-disguised cameo in Ben Stiller's Tropic Thunder (2008) in which he plays a the foul-mouthed, hot-headed, half-bald studio executive. But, every coin has the other part that completes the picture. While the things have been going a bit rough on the professional front, Cruise's personal life has finally been witnessing a much needed sense of calmness and stability. Such stability on the personal front can often lift a person's morale providing him with a sense of rejuvenation that can help him fare well in all the facets of life. Tom Cruise's rejuvenated self is pretty much apparent in the latest installment of the MI franchise, Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol.
Ghost Protocol takes the viewer on a roller coaster of a ride from Moscow to Dubai, all the way to Mumbai, never allowing a breathing space, keeping him on the edge of the seat throughout. MI – GP is indeed the quintessential action extravaganza that the ardent lovers of the genre perpetually anticipate to devour upon in order to satiate their ever growing hunger for unremitting action and adventure. Ethan Hunt is back in all his glory with some newly added dimensions to his old daredevilry that had established him as the greatest contemporary to Ian Fleming's larger than life human incarnate. As seen with Bond in Casino Royale, the key men behind the MI franchise have made conscious efforts to make the caricature of Hunt more vulnerable to danger and crises, and hence more human. MI – GP delivers everything that an action-movie lover craves for: suspense, intrigue, passion, daredevilry, razzmatazz, and much more. The adrenaline filled action is well complemented by the dazzle of the geeky gadgets on display and it is this synergy that makes MI – GP an incredibly sublime experience. The tremendous reputation that the high octane franchise carries meant the newly appointed director Brad Bird—mostly renowned for his animation flicks The Incredibles and Ratatouille—had his work cut out for him. Brad Bird has indeed been up to the task and has lived well to the expectations of Cruise and the entire production team led by J.J. Adams, who directed the third movie of the series back in 2006. Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol is packed with a plethora of action sequences that includes a shootout in Budapest, an escape sequence from a Moscow Jail, a sandstorm chase in Dubai, and a classic brawl in an automated parking garage in Mumbai. However, the sequence that stands out is the one in which Tom Cruise climbs the tallest building in the world, Burj Khalifa by clinging to it from the outside using suction gloves, giving the Spiderman a run for his money.
After the splendidly executed siege of the Vatican in the third installment, Ethan and his IMF team are on the lookout for some classified information pertaining to a Russian extremist Kurt Hendricks, which takes their quest to Kremlin. The covert mission goes awry as their plan is sabotaged by the personal intervention of Hendricks, which turns the tables on Cruise and his team rendering them sequestered and helpless. The questionable events that unfold at Kremlin, forces the US President to invoke the Ghost Protocol leading to the disavowal of IMF. Ethan and his team, which includes the computer geek Benji Dunn (Simon Pegg), agents Jane Carter (Paula Patton) and William Brandt (Jeremy Renner), despite their severe handicap are the only hope left at preventing the diabolical duo of Hendricks and his stalwart Wistrom from fulfilling their demonic mission of global destruction through a nuclear war. Simon Pegg as Benji is spot on with his persiflage, and his nonchalance adds a much needed levity to the otherwise tense plot. Paula Patton as Jane Carter is a treat to the sore eyes: her imperial gait, upright posture, predatory agility, dusky complexion, steamy mystique, athletic built, curvaceous figure, and apparent haughtiness make her an object of envy for males and females alike. Her ethereal presence undoubtedly leaves a lasting impression on the viewer. The introduction of Jeremy Renner as William Brandt adds another layer of intrigue to the plot of MI – GP. Brandt's enigmatic part allows Renner to depict a wide array of emotions that his previous roles couldn't offer. The over-hyped inclusion of veteran Indian actor Anil Kapoor in the MI – GP cast is undoubtedly movie's greatest disappointment, especially from the perspective of Indian cineastes, as the actor fails to make an impression during his ephemeral performance.
Overall, MI – GP has managed to raise the bar for the Action genre. Indian movie-makers, who have recently started to delve into the genre, can look to take a note or two out of MI – GP in order to iron out the usual glitches. Despite the occasional lack of coherence in the plot, MI – GP works quite well at almost all the levels and promises to be a great entertainment. 8/10

definitely part of MI triology, yet offers reboot
Posted by: danikat from: OKC on
I didn't get a chance to watch this in the theaters, but I'm glad I snagged the BR/DVD/DC version that was available from Best Buy when it was released. Brad Bird (Pixar's The Incredibles) did a wonderful job going to live-action. Cruise was a bit wooden, but the others were good. LOVE Simon Pegg as Benji!!! The beginning reminded me of Bond flicks but without the naked women & the tv show beginning. Am tempted to pull out my laptop & have it playing again in the background while I work on some reports. Some awesome one-liners in there. Simon Pegg was da bomb! :)
