Home Viewing: Mission Impossible Ghost Protocol

Bottom Line: Fast action that will make your palms sweat and witty cracks more than make up for any depth this film lacks. Depth? Who needs it.

The Gist: Ethan Hunt, super secret super spy, comes back from a Russian prison after his wife’s death. He’s not happy. When he’s not happy, a whole lot of bad guys pay. Read our full review.

The Verdict: Watch it. It’s better on a big screen, but it’s too much mindless fun to pass up.

Be Aware: Rated PG-13 for action. There’s some mild sexiness, but no sex scenes (although one that seems like it’s headed that direction changes before anyone gets busy.) Mild language.
