Tom Cruise returns from rather unsightly works… of course not referring to Knight and Day… in this action drama. Ghost Protocol sets itself apart from the previous trilogy in that it incorporates much more than just action. It stylizes itself with a complex plot, drawing from Ethan Hunt’s past, giving us a view of the Secretary, and introducing newbies and veterans from all directions.
Jeremy Renner and Simon Pegg show up as the one with the dark secret and the comic relief, respectively.
While this may come off as yet another Mission Impossible flick, I assure you, Ghost Protocol is at the forefront in its innovative action sequences, bringing you breathtaking stunts and nearly impossible maneuvers. Ghost Protocol definitely keeps the audience on their feet, bringing gasps and laughs interchangeably.
Tom Cruise is officially back with this one.
Ghost Protocol is an 8/10.
