What do I know about Brad Bird‘s Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol? I know this: Tom Cruise really likes his hoodie. That hoodie could be this movie’s MacGuffin. The entire plot could revolve around getting Ethan Hunt a fasionable piece of outwear. Yes, the official synopsis says the movie is about the IMF being disbanded and hunted down, but I think that hoodie is key. It is the most important hoodie in the history of cinema.

Here’s the official synopsis for Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol:
This is not just another mission. The IMF is shut down when it’s implicated in a global terrorist bombing plot. Ghost Protocol is initiated and Ethan Hunt and his rogue new team must go undercover to clear their organization’s name. No help, no contact, off the grid. You have never seen a mission grittier and more intense than this.
