What strikes your mind when you see the brand ‘Mission Impossible’? Daring action sequence giving Goosebumps and adrenaline rush often. And it’s Tom Cruise taking you for the chute-the-chute ride with the most brilliant visuals. From minute-to-minute, you’ll have to move towards edge of seat. But what makes this one special from its previous ones in the series is the ‘Plot’.

The film revolves around the most powerful organization IMF, which is in deplorable situation for it is falsely accused of plotting bomb on Kremlin. Its team of agents that includes Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) are now considered as scallywags and Government adjudges Ghost Protocol on them, which means they’ve no protection anymore. It’s about the team of agents setting forth their vigorous action to clear off such depictions and start their combat against swellhead Cobalt (Michael Nygvist), who plans for a nuclear war against the world.

Every time Tom Cruise performance the actions, we witness his characterization to be more powerful, but this time as the entire world turn against him with ‘Ghost Protocol’ announced, it’s like walking on the thin line between roses and thorns… On the pars, we have more powerful characterization working with Tom on this mission that includes - agent carter (Paula Patton), Brandt (Jeremy Renner) and Benji (Simon Pegg).

These actors have clear mottos of keeping the audiences engrossed in different arenas while Tom Cruise is busy with his action sequences. Say for instance while Paula Patton throws a huge glamorous treat for the audiences, it’s Simon Pegg tickling your funny bones. Jeremy Renner who plays the role of analyst keeps not just the characters, but the audiences in deep suspense with his secrets. The collage of these unique characters intensifies the depth of narration.

But overall, it’s the action sequences that makes worthy of pennies you pay for the tickets. Tom Cruise’s action across the world’s tallest building in Dubai, the breathtaking drama across Mumbai’s multi-level car parking, Prison break in Russia are more than enough to keep you engrossed. Anil Kapoor as Brij Nath is an additional attraction for the Indian audiences.

Technically, the top notching cinematography of Robert Elswit takes us straight into the flight of action with the characters while crisp editing by Paul Hirsch is one of the best attributes in this film. Nevertheless, it’s Michael Giacchino swaying out to the perfect range with the background score making it bigger. The moment we hear the signature theme, the excitements reach the peak.

On the whole, ‘Mission Impossible 4: Ghost Protocol’ offers an electrifying experience for the audiences for its
