Critic Reviews

  • David Denby, New Yorker
    "Mission: Impossible-Ghost Protocol" is sheer hurtling mechanism-and it's great silly fun.
  • J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader
    As usual with the series, the movie combines a plot line a toddler could understand with gadgets that would baffle an engineering Ph.D.
  • Richard Corliss, TIME Magazine
    I'm thinking it, so I might as well say it: Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol is no Fast Five.
  • Glenn Kenny, MSN Movies's pretty much state-of-the-art.
  • Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune
    [Bird's] fresh touch gives breathless energy, tremendous excitement and, above all, humor to what could have been a wearying genre exercise.
  • Alonso Duralde, TheWrap
    It's a rousing gasp machine that gives the flagging franchise the kick in the pants it sorely needed, and it marks the most impressive segue from cartoons to features since Pee-Wee's Big Adventure.
  • Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
    Powered by Cruise's moxie, Mission: Impossible -- Ghost Protocol proves that in a Hollywood action-ride culture drenched in fake adrenaline, it's cathartic to encounter the real thing.
  • Justin Craig,
    Boasting an exotic trip around the world, an engaging script, funny dialogue and spectacular stunts, "Ghost Protocol" is an adrenaline-rush adventure on a grand scale.
  • Tom Glasson, Concrete Playground
    Finally an action movie that recaptures the fun and adventure of old.
  • Ben Kendrick, ScreenRant
    Brad Bird takes the series up a notch with enjoyable character dynamics and a straightforward but still intriguing story featuring plenty of unique action set pieces.
