“[D]irector Brad Bird (making his live-action film debut after directing groundbreaking and beloved animated features ‘The Iron Giant’ and ‘The Incredibles’) paces the story with substantial resourcefulness and stages multiple action scenes that are not only very suspenseful and thrilling, but also kind of newfangled, if not actually innovative.”–Glenn Kenny, MSN Movies
“‘Ghost Protocol’ proves that in a Hollywood action-ride culture drenched in fake adrenaline, it’s cathartic enough to encounter the real thing.”–Owen Glieberman, Entertainment Weekly
“Spectacular. Bird knows how to film an action scene, and Cruise knows how to star in one.”–Anders Wotzke, Cut Print Review
