Re: Jack Reacher - Blu-ray Review

My wife is a plot solver too and very rarely misses with her "guesses".
She indulges my action movie addiction, but will occasionally laugh at me when I finally "get it".
That's ok though, at least I get my money's worth.
Reacher is on our list so I didn't read the whole review.
I generally like Tom Cruise movies and since I have not read the books Tom being a little guy will not bother me.

Re: Jack Reacher - Blu-ray Review

If you're a fan of the books, then I'd skip this. For those who are not familiar, then it is probably fine. The Chevelle did sound great, and I liked Duvall as the wily old Gunny, but a lot of the acting from Rosamund Pike was phoned in, and the movie takes a lot of liberties with things like, physics.

I've read several of the books, and while not a fanatic, have a mental image of Reacher that is very different from tom Cruise. The books describe Reacher as a 6'5" 250lb, not very attractive former MP, who in several of the books describes at great length his poor driving capabilities. While I understand that movies take liberties (they changed the setting, the book takes place in Indiana, not PA, and has an entirely different "show down" scene), I can't get past short, good looking, race car driving Tom Cruise as Jack Reacher.

Shame too as the movie rights were optioned years ago for One Shot, and it could have been a great vehicle with another actor.

Re: Jack Reacher - Blu-ray Review

My wife and I randomly rented this the other night and we were pleasantly surprised by it. I think she may have enjoyed it more than I did. I had heard mixed reviews about it while it was in theaters so I wasn't too interested in it but it was the only decent movie available.

Great audio and video and overall a really enjoyable movie.

Re: Jack Reacher - Blu-ray Review

Best Cruise movie, ever. Even better than his MI trilogy.
