Armed with a licence to kill, Secret Agent James Bond sets out on his first mission as 007 and must defeat a weapons dealer in a high stakes game of poker at Casino Royale, but things are not what they seem.
In the fourth installment of the Mission Impossible series, Ethan Hunt and a new team race against time to track down Hendricks, a dangerous terrorist who has gained access to Russian nuclear launch codes and is planning a strike on the United States. An attempt by the team to stop him at the Kremlin ends in a disaster, with an explosion causing severe damage to the Kremlin and the IMF being implicated in the bombing, forcing the President to invoke Ghost Protocol, under which the IMF is disavowed, and will be offered no help or backup in any form. Undaunted, Ethan and his team chase Hendricks to Dubai, and from there to Mumbai, but several spectacular action sequences later, they might still be too late to stop a disaster. Written by
Ethan Hunt's code number, and the number seen on a class ring. A113 is a frequent Pixar in-joke based on one of the room numbers for the animation program at Cal Arts. Brad Bird worked for Pixar, and he has worked an "A113" reference into every one of his feature films, as well as some of his television work. See more »
The "immediate evac" scene where Ethan gets into the car and meets the Secretary starts with a two-carriage yellow overground train passing a brick aqueduct in the background. The only mass transit overground in Moscow is the Moscow Monorail System in the northern part of the city which uses specially built steel monorail over the concrete columns and six carriages of white color per train.
The "No entry" road sign visible is also not correct: the white bar is not as long in Russia. See more »

Much like the first 'Mission: Impossible' movie, the opening credits to this film contain major plot points to the film. See more »
I'm not a fan of Tom Cruise as a person and that sometimes influences my opinion on a film. Even with this point in the back of my mind I must say that Tom Cruise still got it. He's a fantastic actor who doesn't even chose to have a stunt double in MI4. I couldn't even think of trying some of these. Now to the main film. You may think it's going to be just like all the other action movies and all the other Mission: Impossible parts. But with every new part of the series it gets even more spectacular: the equipment is beyond imagination, the locations are mind blowing, the secret plans are super clever, the characters are cool and smart. Also the trailer was that good that I just wanted to see this at the movies and couldn't wait for it to be released. I haven't seen any MI film at the movies and this was definitely a great decision. The best action film in years.
I'm giving it a 10/10 because there was nothing I didn't like about this movie and it was worth every cent!
