That's odd... It looked quite crisp to me. I don't see how that could be a result of a bad copy, though.

My copy looks exceptionally good.

Are you sure you didn't accidentally put the dvd copy in the player rather than the blu-ray disc? I know it seems like a silly question, but I've seen it happen a few times since they started including both discs in many newer movie releases.

Thanks for the review Jon. While I wasn't particularly blown away
with the plot, and didn't think the ending confrontation with the "bad
guy" believable, the audio, LFE, and visual aspects of this movie
are great imo.

PS> Tom Cruise playing Lee Child's Jack Reacher in the upcoming book to movie adaptation(imo)
is laughable.

Re: Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol - Blu-ray Review (Win a Copy - Compliments of Dolby)

Watched this on Netflix Rental DVD Friday night.
I really enjoyed the movie.
I am not one that demands reality out of a movie, but so much effort was put into all the action scenes and stunts to make them look "real" there was one miss that really stood out to me and that was the ICBM crash scene.
Since it was all CG it should have looked like a very big fiery flaming chunk traveling at what ?? 10k+ MPH ??
After all it is a re-entry vehicle with significant mass, the impact from something like that would be an 'explosion' of sorts even without the nuke blast.
Save the world and be the hero but a chunk of the city would still be gone.
Still liked it enough that we will probably eventually buy this on Blu-Ray when it is on sale.
