Mission: Impossible -- Ghost Protocol

Blu-ray Review: Fantastic Release For Great ‘Mission: Impossible -- Ghost Protocol’

Mission: Impossible -- Ghost Protocol Blu-ray

CHICAGO – I was lucky enough to attend a press screening of Brad Bird’s “Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol” at the IMAX theater at Navy Pier and I wondered if my adoration for this incredibly fun movie was in part due to just being overwhelmed by the size of it in IMAX. Nope. I liked it even more the second time on Blu-ray. This is a fantastic action movie, the best film in the series and as fun a time as you could have with a new release in the genre. Don’t rent it, buy it.
