Jack Reacher: New trailer shows Tom Cruise in Collateral mode…

submit to reddit
There was (still is) a lot of noise from fans of the Jack Reacher Novels (This is an adaptation of ‘One Shot, by Lee Child) about Tom Cruise being cast in the lead. Reacher is basically a man Mountain, just a bit taller than Cruise, well much taller. 20 years ago I wouldn’t have bet on Mr Cruise’s ability to carry off a role like this; but the 21st Century Cruise is much improved, or maybe just a lot more effort is put into his work. Tearing through bad guys doesn’t always require the physique of Liam Neeson. Just like Jackie Chan, Bruce Lee an attitude can be just a important. (Ok and amazing Martial arts skills.)

“When a gunman takes five lives with six shots, all evidence points to the suspect in custody. On interrogation, the suspect offers up a single note: "Get Jack Reacher!" So begins an extraordinary chase for the truth, pitting Jack Reacher against an unexpected enemy, with a skill for violence and a secret to keep.”

Adapted and directed by Christopher McQuarrie (writer of The Usual Suspects & The Wolverine) this film has genuine potential. Well at worst it has to be better than Taken 2 right?

Trailer 2…
