We saw this and the movie is damn good, fun, funny and good action. If there was a film I'd liken it to as far as tone of film maybe I'd say Lethal Weapon a bit toned down. And no Dazzler I wouldn't classify this as brainless action. This isn't Statham in his Transporter or Crank movies

 

Oh and Tom kills in this role and of course having Rosamund Pike is always a treat for the eyes and Robert Duvall never hurts either.

The main heavy  is McClain's son in the next Die Hard movie. He was a credible bad guy. And the ending was excellent. Hope it gets sequels

I guess that actor playing McLean's son is definitely an up and comer. I recall when the casting was going on, some bigger names were popping up for the role and he won it which was a complete shock.

I only know him from Spartacus season 1 as Varro, Spartacus' close friend. Great character in the show and I guess this is where they saw potential in him.

So Spartacus actors playing baddies:

Crixus (Manu Bennett) is Azog in Hobbit

Varro (Jai Courtney) is in Jack Reacher

I'm surprised Craig Parker who played Haldir in LOTR was not in the Hobbit. He is also on Spartacus.

Great show!

Another Tom Snooze shoot 'em up as he runs from his gay thoughts flick.  ::yawn::  With Cruise as the main character, it should be called Jack ReachAround.

 I wish we could get through one thread on one website without the obligatory homophobic gay bashing comments.  I dislike the constant reminders especially at Christmas-time that even in this great country there are many that get off on spewing hate. I happen to be a white, heterosexual male but I have never considered those qualities to be accomplishments on my part.  It's just the way I was born and I don't think it makes me any better in any way than those who were born different.  

I'm looking forward to seeing Tom Cruise in the new Jack Reacher Movie written and directed by Chirs McQuarrie.  I hear the movie is much better than the trailers would seem to indicate.  I have thoroughly enjoyed Cruise's performances in several movies like "A Few Good Men, Collateral, Monority Report, The Color of Money and Rain Man" to name a few, and i thought his brief cameo appearance in "Tropic Thunder" was hilarious.

 This was actually really good. I'm a big fan of the books and wasn't impressed with 5'1 Tom as Reacher. He also talks a lot more than the character, but I guess they had to get the interior monolog exposition out somehow. 8.5 out of 10.  

I look forward to the next one.

Meh...rental.

And I dislike idiots who stand on their sinless soapbox and preach like anyone really gives a fuck.  Must be nice to perceieve ones self as perfect.  Tom Cruise is barely an actor.  You could cut clips of him from every movie he's done and make an entirely new movie as all his characters are flat and two dimensional.  I see why you like him so much.

@conundrum............."barely an actor"......that statement alone, along with you're homophobic rant proves you know nothing about movies or acting.  And if you don't like it, well I really don't give a fuck.

 I gave it a C

but that Rosamund Pike gets a A- (points off for the blondness)

aegrant 12/27/2012 3:50:21 PM

 I gave it a C plus - damn thing won't show the plus sign
