I've never seen a Mission Impossible and I always thought that it must be a good (or at least entertaining) series due to its scale, but I honestly didn't like that.

Tight action and technical gadgets are all nice and nice, but here everything is so easy that it's not even exciting or spectacular anymore, but rather a bit silly. So that apparently they suddenly have a very high tech train carriage and Tom Cruise walks up to the Burj Khalifa and roams around (okay, does make for nice images).

Outside of that there are quite a lot of slow boring parts and the film actually just manages to be very uninteresting in terms of plot. Tired of hanging and strangling. I can appreciate an action movie from time to time, even if it's not usually my genre, but this is clearly not one of them.

An accumulation of implausibility laced with technological nonsense and various exotic locations; Formula work cannot get much more clichéd. In the beginning I still felt entertained, that must be said, but gradually the interest waned, also because it takes much, much too long. Especially in the last half hour, the limits of the ridiculous are amply exceeded: the fight for the briefcase in that car hall was about the lowest point (that whole badguy anyway, what does that mean, wanting to die to realize a nuclear war? ?).

Part 1 still had a certain atmosphere, this is just uninspired performing stunts with Tom Cruise. If Mission Impossible has to represent the flag bearer of the action movie, then the genre is even worse than I thought.

They remain funny action films, those Mission Impossibles; I always mix them up a bit in my head. Notice that I never really know what order they're supposed to be again, they all feel a bit interchangeable with each other; whether you're talking about Ghost Protocol, Rogue Nation, or a Fallout. Doesn't really matter either, because the fact that they are entertaining is paramount. The idea is also pretty much always the same; a team goes after a rather boring villain with all kinds of technical gimmicks. Heaps of tapping laptops, exchanging USB drives and hard drives and driving around in luxury cars. A nice pace, slick appearance and often a bit too long. Simon Pegg will provide the humor, Tom Cruise will do memorable stunts. The most implausible scene in Ghost Protocol is when Simon Pegg has to convince Cruise to climb the Burj Khalifa in Dubai. More realistically, Pegg suggests that they should stick a MacGuffin in somewhere, but halfway through his sentence Cruise has already scrambled out. Because Cruise likes to do crazy stunts. Even that is a recurring element in a franchise, which is actually mainly filled with recurring elements. But as long as they are executed well, I have no objections.

3.5 stars.
