I likes it
Ignoring the height issue, Cruise makes a pretty good fist of it. The problems come more from Rosamund Pike's eye-rolling and heaving bosom and that Werner Herzog, despite having THAT great voice, isn't given anything to do.
It's not one of the more satisfying Jack Reacher books to be honest - the baddies are rather nebulous and their great plan to kill a particular target is so needlessly complicated that it doesn't make any kind of sense.
worst film name ever? - sounds like a gay porn star who specialises in high octane hand jobs.
and someone has scrawled 'round' after jack reacher.
can't refer to this film any other way now.
but don't think I can ignore the height thing. He's supposed to be this huge intimidating monster of a man, but instead he looks like Marty McFly getting angry at Biff.
I'll also find it intensely implausible when he is defeated by tom cruise.
for a Cruise film.
though i could count the good cruise films on werner herzog's hand
A Few Good Men?
You're right, I've still got a finger left.
pretty good cast who were completely underused, but it was entertaining enough
This dude's books are shitty ... erm, except they're not! Will see, deffo.
