DVD: Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol


This particular Mission certainly would be impossible for any flesh-and-blood human being, but Tom Cruise and his team (Simon Pegg, Jeremy Renner, Paula Patton) tick off the most ludicrously challenging feats as easily as they saunter away from bone-shattering falls.

The joke soon wears thin. Fact is that once you've seen Cruise do six impossible things before breakfast, it's hard to care too much about the seventh.
