Went to see Mission Impossible - Ghost Protocol today and it was a fantastic action film.  I know that you have to suspend belief with these things, but what fun.  I was sort of sad that they killed off Agent Hanaway really quickly (the gorgeous Josh Holloway from Lost and the Cool Water ads) but the film was fast-paced and held my attention throughout.  I thought Simon Pegg was really good in it - he had several excellent humourous lines - and I especially loved the Burj sequence.  I highly recommend it.
