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

I haven't seen any of the other MI films, so wasn't sure what to expect. My wife and I both liked it enough that I went out and bought the first three movies on Blu-Ray. (OK, not that big of a deal, since they were only $4.99 at Best Buy thanks to their Upgrade and Save promotion.)

The soundtrack to this movie is nothing less than spectacular. They did an amazing job of enveloping the listener with the living world of the movie. One scene in particular was really spectacular:
Spoiler
The assault on the SUV.
It was so well done that I went back to rewatch it the next day, and even though I knew what was coming, it still made me jump. Great work, and an outstanding demo scene.

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

I finally got back to finish your review Jon very nice work. I like all of the MI movies but own non of them, yet. I am still considering owning this one.

The audio is so believable I felt myself being drawn, no pulled, to the missing tower window with LFE rumbling wind effect. I have heard and felt these wind effects for real and in this movie it was so believable I felt disoriented - I had to look around to remind myself I was OK. It was a reality check but did not take me away from the movie, somehow.

Great Entertainment.

Thanks

I've seen this one about 5 times now and do believe it just keeps getting better with each viewing.

I was at the Burj Khalifa the day before Tom Cruise was there to film for this movie... really cool views from the main viewing platform!

Anyways, I thought the audio and visual quality on this bluray were great although the plot could have been a bit better... wasn't bad but just not as good as previous ones I thought. Obviously enjoyed seeing the Burj Khalifa part, what a great stunt!

I look forward to this one! I wasn't going to bother with it, but based on the reports of the improved storyline, I'll give it a go anyway. Seems like it'll be great for demo material even if I end up not caring for the movie itself.

My boys have never seen the other 2 MI movies and wanted to see MI2 before Ghost Protocol. GP is so much better than MI2. MI2 had too many far fetched scenes while GP was much more realistic.

I watched this a few weeks ago, and really enjoyed it. My brother in law brought it over, so not sure which version it was, I remember hearing that there were a few different editions depending on where you bought it. I didn't get a chance to watch the extras, which I've heard are interesting - so sign me up for the freebie!

I agree. I don't like the "impossible human" tricks that are in most action movies now. "Fun with CGI" I guess is what I would call it. GP was more enjoyable to me.
