Mission Impossible 4 – the movie Review


Mission Impossible 4 (MI4) is an excellent watch. Tom Cruise rocks with his team! The biggest plus point is the humour quotient through out the movie unlike the earlier ventures! So it’s just not action packed, exciting but also quite entertaining and enjoyable. Wish there was a 3D version! Anil Kapoor is a non-cameo pappu here. We have seen Shakti Kapoor, Gulshan Grover, Ranjit in relatively stronger villain-cum-pappu roles in Hindi movies quite often, haven’t we? (But whatever and however, Anil has done that role for the best reasons known to him.)
So touch of Bollywood style and India make the movie bit a package to sell out, don’t they?
Dubai – Burj Khalifa, Sand Storm sequences are more than worth mentioning, in fact, the best. The Burj Khalifa sequence gave more than the trade mark mountain scene of the MI series.
Russia- prison scene was crisp. The Kremlin Crumbling even more!
Russia, Dubai, India (it was indeed to showcase a bit of India more than a stereotype Mumbai, there’s more in Mumbai to shoot scenes at) fit into the story quite smoothly except the illusive transition form Dubai to Mumbai until the explicit mention was made.
The mention of the Chhatrapur art made me feel bit good!
Ah, the heat fan – magnetic robot sequence!

Wondered how a (ex university-) professor was so strong even to give a fight with a super agent as Ethan! (Any way, he finally decided to drop himself back.)
As with the MI movie trend, after the last action sequence with the reunion, it just doesn’t end there, it shows the back to normal life and then ready for the next mission (impossible).

GP not for Ghost Protocol, but should be for Grand Prix, such was the racy pacy flow of the movie with appropriate space!

And finally, a good movie always draws audience itself, so does this movie.
