It's like something out of a Brosnan-era Bond film, but somehow were supposed to find it more believable because it's Morgan Freeman passing out the toys rather than Q.
I don't think anyone is saying those elements are more or less believable. They are simply great feats of technology, all developed by the greatest minds in this "world" and funded by the richest enterprise we know of in this "world". To simply say "oh they can't do that" in regards to the tech used is unreasonable considering the circumstances.
