Jack Reacher Movie Review

Jack Reacher: Reaches a Little Too Far

To begin this Jack Reacher movie review, it is perhaps important to point out the obvious. The film is asking quite a lot for fans to believe that Tom Cruise is a 6’5” character that fans adore.

In fact, considering how small he is, even on screen, popcorn thriller fans are about the only ones who won’t feel the sting of an actor desperately seeking his next picture, beyond an overdone and burned our Mission Impossible Franchise.

Cruise does present his lines with his trademark charismatic charm. This helps to soften the blow that some fans may experience with the character. Although, there is a lacking depth of honesty in his overall portrayal and that can be a downer for those who watch a film to become invested in a character, even when it is only for a couple of hours.
