Talk to your kids about…
Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol
What is the appeal of the U.S. / Russian conflict in scripts? How does this movie modify the Cold War relationship between these two countries? What new enemies are being depicted in films?
How have terrorist attacks altered the action genre? Can you think of other purely fictitious movies that reflect real world trends? Why does a “reality component” make the story more believable and interesting?
How many product placements can you identify in this film? When technology fails, are the products ever branded with actual company names or logos?
