Mission Impossible - Ghost Protocol 2011

     This is the fourth Mission Impossible film.  Ethan Hunt has a new team and they must track down Hendricks.  He is a terrorist and he has the Russian nuclear launch codes.  He is planning to launch a strike against the United States.  The team tries to stop him at the Kremlin but an explosion causes severe damage to the building.  The IMF is blamed for the bombing and this forces the US President to invoke Ghost Protocol.  Under this ruling, the IMF is disavowed and no assistance or backup will be offered.  Ethan and the team follow Hendricks to Dubai and then to Mumbai. 
     Many of the action scenes are very intense.  I think only one person wears the mask that you can’t tell is a mask.  There is a LOT of chasing and running.  It seems the codes won’t be obtained quickly or possibly not at all?  Of course, it will take over 120 minutes to get the codes!!  3 ½* (I liked this movie)

133 min, Action directed by Brad Bird with Tom Cruise, Jeremy Renner, Simon Pegg, Paula Patton, Michael Nvqvist, Vladimir Mashkov, Samulie Edelmann, Ivan Shvedoff, Anitl Kapoor, Lea Sevdoux, Josh Holloway.

Note:  Imdb 7.4 out of 10, 93% critic 76% audience on Rotten Tomatoes, Roger Ebert 3 ½*, Amazon 4.1* out of 5* with 2491 reviews.
Special Note:  Filmed in India, United Arab Emirates, Hungary, Czech Republic, Canada, Russia, Santa Clarita, California.  This is the first MI film to be released in IMAX.
