Easily the best entry in the Mission: Impossible franchise, this over-the-top spy thriller is still stuck with a preposterous plot and one-dimensional characters. But the set pieces, i.e., what matters most in a flick like this, totally deliver. As directed by Brad Bird, making an astonishing live action debut, the various stunts, chases, fights, shoot-outs, break-ins and break-outs are all inventive and exciting. Ghost Protocol is also full of humour, and I loved the chemistry between Tom Cruise and his team (Jeremy Renner, Paula Patton, Simon Pegg). Briskly moving from Budapest to Moscow, Dubai and Mumbai, all the while alternating fun little beats with IMAX-size action sequences, this is a damn great time at the movies.
