New this week on Blu-ray: 'Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol'

Paramount releases the fourth installment of "Mission: Impossible" on Blu-ray this week, and it looks and sounds great.

'Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol' is now out on Blu-ray. Paramount

You can call it "Mission: Impossible 4" or Tom Cruise's comeback flick after a career that suddenly hit the skids. But whatever it's called, Paramount's done another stellar job with the video transfer and the Blu-ray version offers impressive fine detail along with an equally dynamic soundtrack to back up the picture quality.

As for the movie, well, it's also pretty good, so this one might very well be worth a purchase rather than a rental.

I know, I know, a lot of you don't buy discs anymore, you just stream everything or keep your movies as digital files. On that note, "Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol" does come with the DVD version as well as a digital copy and is one of the few I've encountered recently that allows you to save both a digital copy in iTunes and your Ultraviolet/Flixster account.

The extras didn't blow us away on this one, but check out the clip below.
