Tengo que decir que la saga 'Mission Impossible' me parecen unas películas de acción más que decentes. Son películas que saben lo que son y no pretenden ser otra cosa, y además tienen a un actor que se deja el pellejo para que cada escena de acción sea lo más realista posible, Tom Cruise. 'Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol' es eso, una película que sabe que es el cliché más grande de todos, un ruso que quiere obtener poder nuclear para destruir el mundo y un equipo de espías descastados que lo quiere detener (DE NUEVO). Es un cliché que destaca porque te meten unas de las escenas de acción más originales que hay, vamos, todo lo de Abu Dhabi me parece la hostia, aunque también se pierde en intentar superarse a sí misma y llegar al punto de ser estúpida. Funciona porque se toma por lo que es, porque el tono no cambia, porque apagar tu cerebro mientras Tom Cruise hace cosas es divertido y porque Simon Pegg es la risa. Lo que vengo a decir es que es pura mediocridad, es puro entretenimiento, no es nada más. LO MEJOR: Sin duda la creatividad que tienen los guionistas para llevar el cliché a nuevas esferas y, aunque la gente lo critique, Tom Cruise que es un actorazo, cuando quiere, que de deja la piel como nadie para que esta saga funcione. LO PEOR: El listón de cosas imposibles está tan alto que para ir más allá cae en la estupidez y el sinsentido…ejem, traje magnético, ejem. MOMENTO A DESTACAR: Todo lo del Burj Khalifa. Ese plano vertical que sigue a Tom Cruise mientras sale por la ventana: parfait. #missionimpossibleghostprotocol #missionimpossible #ghostprotocol #tomcruise #simonpegg #paulapatton #jeremyrenner #bradbird #paramountpictures #accion #action #cinema #cine #pelicula #peliculas

In ‘Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation’, he dangled himself off the side of a plane. In ‘Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol’, one scene required him to repel 163 stories down the side of the Burj Khalifa. He also hung from a Canyon Wall.
