Mission Impossible 4: On Set in Dubai

Hollywood is in the UAE this month as filming takes place on the Burj Khalifa, for the next instalment of the Mission Impossible franchise.

'Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol' is the fourth instalment of the series and is currently being filmed in Dubai. Some of the main scenes in the film take place in Dubai, particularly at the World's tallest building, the Burj Khalifa.

I have to say I enjoy the Mission Impossible films. They don't compare to the Bourne Trilogy, but they are entertaining when you don't expect too much. I have also got to mention that I am really impressed with Tom Cruise. He is doing all his own stunts which isn't common amongst your other A-list actors. It must take real nerve to abseil off the tallest building in the world.

I'm really looking forward to seeing the film once it's complete. The Architecture in Dubai would make the perfect backdrop to a glossy action film. Personally I would really like to see a post apoclyptic film set in Dubai in the near future, once the oil money has ran out. Think JG Ballard's 'High Rise' crossed with 'Blade Runner' - I guess we'll have to wait a bit longer for that one though.
