Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol

The Mission Impossible team has done it again.  I'm referring to Tom Cruise and his team not Ethan Hunt and IMF team.  In the latest installment of the Mission Impossible series, Ethan Hunt and his team are racing against time to stop a terrorist named Hendricks (Michael Nyqvist of The Girl with the Dragoon Tattoo series), who is planning to begin a nuclear war.  Hendricks believes such a nuclear holocaust will be the cleansing that the earth needs.  To carry out his insane scheme, he hired Sabine Moreau (Lea Seydoux) to steal the Russian nuclear launch codes.  The IMF team of Hunt (Tom Cruise), Benji Dunn (Simon Pegg), and smoking-hot Jane Carter (Paula Patton) try to break into the Kremlin to steal information on Hendricks. They are a step too late and Hendricks steals the files and detonates an explosion in the Kremlin. The Russians believe the US was responsible and the IMF is selected to be the rogue operation responsible.  The President is forced to invoke Ghost Protocol, under which the IMF is disavowed, and will be offered no help or backup.  Hunt's team is joined by "analyst" William Brandt (Jeremy Renner).  The fast-paced adventure takes us to Dubai and where the team tries to retrieve the codes.  Hendricks escapes with the codes and the team pursues him to Mumbai where he links up with a satellite to launch a missile at the US.  The action is non-stop with amazing stunts by Hunt as he scales the Burj Khalifa in Dubai.  The film features two locations where I have traveled on business --- Dubai and Mumbai --- which added to my enjoyment.  Visit the official site for more information and previews.
