The adaptation of Lee Child’s best-selling book One Shot, Tom Cruise has some mighty big literary shoes to fill. This film could have so easily been a mechanical and soulless action film, relying purely on the big name stars and the widely-read source material. In fact, Jack Reacher is beautifully shot, brilliantly acted and far surpasses the traditional man-against-the-world action flick. It never pushes the envelope too far, but Jack Reacher will leave you wanting more.
Punch, punch, Tom Cruise, punch, snappy one-liner, punch, Werner Herzog, Tom Cruise, punch…
Tom Cruise falls short of living up to the character of Jack Reacher
If he does, it’ll be very very silly.
