A little heavy on the guess-who and I'm sad that the mouse is gone. It was okay. I only remembered bits and pieces from the books but it seems like they captured it pretty well.
I'd consider these films to watch with the kids.
Surprisingly this was quite bad. The editing in the action sequences lacks continuity and a sense of 3d space. At one point the henchman eats a carrot. It is the only vegetable in the film, yet it is not explained.
Willis is perhaps only one sequel from vegetable himself. He spends most of his time yelling inappropriately, often to himself, and is out of touch with what's going on.
What did I learn from Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol? Let me see. There are a lot of BMWs in Dubai and Mumbai (coincidence?) and they have safety features you can trust, and cool start controls, and cool wheels and cool grill-lights, what? I haven't seen such gross product placement in a while. Oh yeah, and iPhones. iPhones are cool, iPads are cool, apparently USB cables are cool; but iPhones in rubberised cases? I guess they might knock them around…
I've bought the DVD, the soundtrack, watched the making of and dreamed about Kelly McGillis more than one time. The film that did more for Air Force enlistments than anything else will do the same for you.
If you've ever been holding on too tight with a bunch of oiled up dudes then you will lose your edge over Top Gun again and again.
