I watched this for the witty dialogue and on that score I was a little disappointed. I was surprised that watching this for the first time, all these years later, that it wasn't spoiled.
It sure was a different time back in the past. Big cell phones. Portable phones instead of cell phones. Simpler times. Wire taps don't seem to have been a thing, given what was said on these phones. So rather than being bogged down in the technicalities…
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.
