I hope I don't bore you guys with my posts. Now, I would like to talk about 2 of my spy action favorite movies. Even though in the tittle I use vs. It doesn't mean I prefer one to the other. I just want to point that both movies have their good and bad sides. But before that, I would like to tell that there will be spoiler (But I believe many of you have already seen the movie).
First I would like to talk about Mission Impossible : Ghost Protocol (I would simplify it with just Ghotocol). It's a pity I never watch Ghotocol in the cinema. I just found about Ghotocol months later (after Avengers) and watch it on DVD when I were at Batam. I already know the spoiler about Ghotocol so there's no surprise there. Even though I already know the story, it still impressed me with the actings and actions. My favorite actor absolutely Jeremy Renner. He blows me with his superb actings. It is very different from Avengers. You can get the vibe someone tortured and angst written all over him. For you who wonder what angst mean, it's your homework. LOL. I love the part when the William Brandt (Jeremy Renner) meet with Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) until the car crashed and submerged into the river. The moment you see that Ethan ask for pen instead handshakes with Brandt made you realize that there will be some drama between them.
I also love the part when they try to double Moreau, Wilstorm until Ethan confront him about his real status as agent. To be honest, I wonder whether Secretary give Brandt chief analyst position because of his ability or guilt for lying to him about Julia death. For now, I will settled with his ability because of his ability like facial recognition program and great if not photographic memory. But, it's not just Brandt that I love (even though he is the most) but also Tom Cruise, Paula Patton, Simon Peg, etc.
But unfortunately like all movies, even Mission Impossible cannot be perfect. There's some scenes that I think is not important like Indian scenes. Not that it was not nice seeing Brandt jump and Jane seduce the guy. Seeing that Jane was too late with the code, it could be replace with some meaningful action that impact the story and make the final scene climatic. And the final battle itself between Ethan and Cobalt, was not that great. It feels like it lack something that Dark Knight Rises had, but I have yet pinpoint it. And final conversation between Ethan and Brandt about Julia look a little simple. I mean Brandt quit being Field Agent and feeling guilty for 3 years and just from some sentences with Ethan could make Brandt join Field Agent again. It contradict Brandt personality as someone tortured and introverted. Make you wonder what will happen in Mission Impossible 5. No doubts, there will be one with Brandt in it.
Anyway, overall I love Mission Impossible : Ghost Protocol. Congratulations for all the staffs who make it. My review is solely my opinion. Hope I don't offense anyone with my posts. If someone feel offense, I apologize (no offense intended).
God Bless All Of You ^^
