Jack Reacher must uncover the truth behind a major government conspiracy in order to clear his name. On the run as a fugitive from the law, Reacher uncovers a potential secret from his past that could change his life forever.
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
Brad Bird: [A113] Ethan uses the call sign "Alpha 113" and "A113" appears on Hanaway's ring. A113 is a frequent in-joke and Easter egg appearing in films produced by Pixar as well as films created by alumni of California Institute of the Arts, based on one of the room numbers for the character animation BFA program. Director Brad Bird is both a Cal Arts alumnus and Pixar movie director, and he has worked an "A113" reference into every one of his feature films, as well as some of his television work. See more »
(at around 12 mins) When Carter and Hunt sit in the van and Carter updates Hunt on what happened to the colleague in Budapest, some camera shots on her show a silver reading lamp coming from top right of the picture, however several other camera shots do not show this lamp, while the perspective has not changed significantly.

Much like the first 'Mission: Impossible' movie, the opening credits to this film contain major plot points to the film. See more »
This was a fun movie to watch; much better than I anticipated. Usually sequels have totally run their course by the fourth time, but not so here. In fact, this might even be the best of the Mission Impossible films.
It has a good mixture of interesting action scenes, suspense, drama, humor, great scenery of Venice, Italy, and fine acting. Nothing is overdone to the point of being too much and, as most MI films go, it has the normal espionage-type intrigue to figure out.
It's just plain entertaining. Kudos to all: the director, the actors and the special-effects and cameraman. A superb job done all around.
