DVD of the week: Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol

What is it? The fourth in Tom Cruise’s secret agent franchise, notable for a breathtaking climb up the Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building, and an expanded role for sidekick Simon Pegg.

The film also marks the live action debut of Incredibles director Brad Bird. What we said: “Like previous directors, Brad Bird has built his story around elaborate chases, high-risk stunts and awesome gadgets, with a plot so perfunctory is feels as if it was released from a 1980s action time-capsule.” Extras: Deleted scenes, cast interviews and director commentary.
