Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol
Location: Redstone Theater
Dir. Brad Bird. 2011, 132 mins. 35mm. With Tom Cruise, Ving Rhames, Simon Pegg. Director Brad Bird’s previous work solely in animated films (Pixar favorites Ratatouille, The Incredibles) turned out to be more of blessing than curse for his first live-action feature. Instead of being hindered by physical actors and spaces, he decides instead to push physicality and physics to their limits, tossing Cruise about like a cartoon character. It makes for some of the most spectacular stuntwork of the series, including a sequence that hangs Cruise off the side of the Burj Khalifa, the world’s largest building.
