    I made this topic back when I first found out about this movie. I'm still not happy about Tom Cruise being the amazing (and tall) Jack Reacher. Anyone who has read the books can agree. Reacher is a force to be feared. Tom Cruise....doesn't even intimidate ME. =/

    I'm making this topic for two reasons though. The first is to show the trailers, see what anyone thinks. The second is to see if my opinion changes at all. I'm going to see the movie the second it comes out. Mainly because I'm that big of a Reacher fan that I hope they can do some good. But...Cruise? He's not the hulk that Jack Reacher is. I'm very damn disappointed. Where is Liam Neeson when you need him?

    Oh, and if you've never heard of the book series, I highly (HIGHLY) recommend checking them out. Hell, start with my favorite "Running Blind". I await to see if the movie makes me like it.

    I'm actually looking forward to this. I like Cruise as an action hero. And this looks like a return to the form of Mission Impossible and Minority Report.

    Never heard of this before I saw the preview when I was at the movies a few weeks ago. I'm not really a fan of Tom Cruise as an action hero. He just looks awkward and is a tiny tiny person. Doesn't make much sense to me. But to each his own I guess.

    Exactly. >_<

    He can't do it. He's just...not the build or the character for Reacher. Even his voice isn't what it should be.

    Heading out in about an hour to see the movie, will edit later. Going in hoping for some decent action.


    Alright, seen the movie. I'd say the best part is that I haven't gotten to this book yet, so everything was a complete surprise. If you can attempt to ignore the fact that they got a short guy to play Reacher, then the movie is good. He does many things that keep to Reacher's personality. All in all, good film, I'd say go see it.

    Also, reading the wiki, some major things were left out. Kinda shocks me when they are things that could EASILY be added in.
