The only thing Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol doesn’t improve upon MI3 is with the villain.

The action beats are better - the writing is better - that sequence where Cruise scales the Burj Khalifa and has to climb back down is still fucking spellbinding.

This has to be the greatest rebranding of an actor I can think of - Cruise went from a box office failure because he’s a psychopath to a box office success because he’s a psychopath. It’s terrific.

But where is his character's strong female and overall empowered replacement?

I suppose that’s Hayley Atwell…but I’m not convinced they end the series after this next one.
Cruise isn’t Keanu - I don’t think he really gives a shit about the fact that he’s turning 62 and would still do crazy stunts for a while.

Brad Bird is a better Spielberg protégé than JarJar could ever be.

Agreed entirely.

Mission Impossible - Rouge Nation. So Ghost Protocol was a strong reboot - more or less fixing the franchise. The biggest problem with movie five is it seems to be showing us a lot of what we already saw in movie four. The IMF gets dissolved, Ethan faces off against a rogue agent. The villain even is basically Spectre for the first 75%. Its a better Spectre movie than SPECTRE - but that's a low bar.

It goes in a different direction in the last quarter or so. It turns out diet Spectre was a cocked up plan by a UK bureaucrat to police the world and it went horribly wrong almost immediately, and most of the climax is Cruise outwitting the villain. The ultimate way he's arrested is a little anticlimactic, but not quite as bad as the ending of movie three.

The setpieces are all pretty exciting. The opening is good stuff, the car chase in Morocco is engaging - the motorcycle chase later. All of the action, with the exception of when he has to dive underwater - which overuses CGI and doesn't really feel tactile. I get that Cruise can't breathe underwater forever, but it could have been written to be done a different way.

Rebecca Ferguson is also hot as fuck and this movie gives her a lot to do.

Probably the weakest of the three post reboot movies that I've seen, but by no means bad.
