Brief thoughts after watching Mission: Impoosible 4 at a soldout IMAX auditorium in San Francisco (Metreon): it is the best action movie of the year. Sort of like a hybrid of Bourne and 007 that combined all the good parts, with non-stop but not over-the-top actions and cool gadgets. Good humors from Simon Pegg. It is destined to be the crowd-pleaser of this holiday season, and I see great legs and potential for $200m total. Also Dark Knight Rises prologue in IMAX is a must see; definitely the most anticipated film of 2012 by far.
