Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol (2011) score: 74%
The Mission: Impossible series is one of those rare beasts. It gets better and better with each entry, rather than the normal thing where each one becomes increasingly awful and governed by studio bosses instead of the filmmakers themselves.
With the awe-inspiring and nauseating efforts by Tom Cruise atop the Burj Khalifa, this Mission: Impossible set an incredibly hard task for Rogue Nation in terms of spectacle. While Michael Nyqvist’s villain Hendricks is at the duller end of the bad guy spectrum and the nuclear launch codes storyline is a little retreaded, the perfectly orchestrated action makes up for it.
