Mission Implausible: Suspending Reality
Mission Impossible brings the concept of Willful Suspension of Disbelief to a completely new level. In the fourth installment of the Mission Impossible series, the plot line of the first movie is brought back: Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) is disavowed after a failed mission. In this movie he has his two teammates: Benji Dunn( played by Simon Pegg) and Jane Carter (played by Paula Patton) plus an analyst William Brandt (Jeremy Renner) to help him stop a madman with the ability to trigger a nuclear war.
And if the whole premise seems absurdly unreal, that is just the beginning. During the course of the movie, the team somehow travels between five different countries while on the top of the US and Russia terrorist list, Hunt tracks a bad guy through a sandstorm, Benji hacks into the Kremlin security system, the team remodels the tallest building in the world, and finally Hunt survives a fifteen foot drop inside a car.
Of course, to make it even more realistic, all their equipment is conveniently given to them in a fully loaded train car with everything they could possibly need that was somehow overlooked by the US and Russia. By the way, did I mention the part where magnets affect only the Brant and not the metal screws or actual metal computer that he is maneuvering in (and the computer somehow did not cook him when they turned off the cooling fan.)
In addition to this, somehow America fails to respond to seeing a missile heading toward San Francisco .Finally, there is the part where they use a flash drive to override military grade firewalls.
However, despite all this, Ghost Protocol was entertaining and I spent the entire time on the edge of my seat. And even with the lack of reality, the movie was not two hours wasted. However unreal it was, this movie is a must see.
So remember, WILLFUL SUSPENSION OF DISBELIEF: Don't over think the movie.Just enjoy it...because you undoubtedly will.
