Mission Impossible

This will probably be my last movie review for the 2011 movie year. As with last year, I plan to do a separate Oscar list after I see the nomination list.
Mission Impossible was a surprisingly good film. There were unbelievable elements, but they were overshadowed by some tremendously good action pieces and a solid overall plot. You could do worse than this, for sure. Ranking to follow. Also, this movie had the other lead from the Swedish version of the Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. Funny timing on these three films.
(Probably) final rankings for 2011:

1. Hugo
2. The Help
3. Captain America
4. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2
5. Source Code
6. Hanna
7. The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo
8. Sherlock Holmes
9. Mission Impossible
10. Thor
11. Rango
12. Paul
13. The Adjustment Bureau
14. X-Men: First Class
15. Pirates: On Stranger Tides
16. Sucker Punch
17. Green Hornet
18. Three Musketeers
19. Your Highness
20. Cowboys & Aliens
21. I Am Number Four

Sherlock beats MI for cleverness and Downey vs expensive production and Cruise. Both solid, fun action movies, though.
