From the Lee Child books.

I think Cruise needs to channel more of his inner Vincent from Collateral in order to appear more badass, but it still looks cool.

The title alone sounds sooo how everyone perceives Tom Cruise these days.

Fuck this movie, fuck Tom Cruise and fuck Lee Child.

Jack Reacher is 6'5, and never drives a car.

This trailer and this movie take a big steaming shit on the faces of all the fans of the books. I hope it bombs.

totally different from Drive, not that you can tell by the trailer. More like Walking Tall meets Dirty Harry.

Did everyone forget about one of the underrated performances of the last 10 years? Sorry, I'm a Cruise fan, as I am a Mel Gibson fan.

Mel Gibson would make a better Reacher.

Or Lliam Neeson, or Jim Jesus Christ, or Ray Stevenson or even Eric from true blood.

How is it that The Rock was not cast for this role?

Yes but The Rock is taller, which is clearly more important to fitzy

Yes, I'm the only one.

In the books he is 6'5 and that is important the way the books are written. His size and ability to intimidate are key parts of the story. His stature dictates how people react with him. He is perceived as a threat from the word go, and that makes things harder for him at every turn.

It's an element of the series that Child makes a point to bring up constantly. Cruise is no perceived threat at first sight. I don't care how crazy-eyed or stone faced he looks, and from the trailer he is playing Reacher all wrong anyway.
