The theme song is unmistakable, accentuating the action and intrigue that comprise the Mission: Impossible series. In the 4th
installment entitled Ghost Protocol, Tom Cruise is back as Ethan Hunt. And this time, he brings along famed animation director, Brad
Bird, responsible for such works as Iron Giant and The Incredibles. In this installment, the IMF is implicated in a bombing at the
Kremlin and shut down. To clear their name and diffuse the tension between the U.S. and Russians, Ethan is forced to invoke ghost
protocol, assembling a team of specialists off the grid to stop a madman from starting a nuclear war. While the storyline in MI4
offers nothing new and the characters are fairly static, the action is flawless - sizzling sequences like an old fashioned prison
break and a vertigo induced expedition outside the tallest building in the world. As a result, Ghost Protocol succeeds in its
mission, delivering one of the most entertaining, testosterone infused adventures of the year.
