We've Seen Almost 20 Minutes Of Mission Impossible 4, Want To Show You A Clip And Tell You About It

Well, I've seen some of Mission Impossible:Ghost Protocol.

If the rest of the movie is as good as the bits the studio has allowed me to see, Brad Bird has made the transition from animation to live action with extraordinary flair.

All the things that devotees of the series love are in place; wild action, improbable gadgetry and ostentatious product placement.

The pivotal scene shown was a vertiginous free climbing sequence that is surely one of the tensest sequences of its kind ever filmed. Viewed on a colossal IMAX screen it will have audiences writhing in sympathy as Tom Cruise scales the tallest building on Earth with little more than self-belief and some sticky gloves.

Simon Pegg is back and making a great showing as house nerd / comic relief and Jeremy Renner has the distinct air of someone who is being readied to lead the team if Cruise decides to quit the franchise.

I'm biased, the Mission Impossible flicks are a guilty pleasure of mine but if you like fast, dizzying action and Apple computers there's a lot to love here. As long as you don't suffer from vertigo.

Thanks to MSN for that excerpt.
