Film Notes : Mission : Impossible – Ghost Protocol

In some ways J.J. Abrams broke the franchise with his contribution to the franchise. When he set up the impossible infiltration scene, the bread, butter and staple of such films, but then skipped it, jumping to its frenzied, improvised escape, the world was forever changed. To go back as though it never happened, to depict every little impossible scenario, feels tired now. The individual pieces are great, the skyscraper scene, the climactic battle, but the string tying them together is lacking.
