A film by Christopher McQuarrie
Cast: Tom Cruise, Rebecca Ferguson, Jeremy Renner
It is hard to believe that it has been 19 years when the first one came out. Tom Cruise was already a star and started producing. Here is a terrific action film by Cruise who does not seems to disappoint. I am hoping he will do an independent film some day as a character actor like the on in Magnolia.
Yes sir the syndicate is real and they want Ethan hawks. The stunts are out of this world and the story is easy to follow as well as there is a twist that I saw coming as big as a house, but that is okay the film is still good. Enjoy the show and have a good time. Great stunt here and what gets me really is that Ethan hawks gets a beating gets out of it, gets on a plane finally the door opens he get sucked in and bang his head goes 3 minutes under water get revive by a beautiful woman and crash a car at full speed, rides a motor cycle and get bang up but he still keep on ticking. Yeah! I know it is just a movie. Plenty of action and fun to watch. And yes it is just an other action film. Let’s not forget Sean Harris the evil genius as wells Alec Baldwin as an intelligence blowhard; Plus Rebecca Ferguson is done an outstanding job as kicking ass out there.
A film by Christopher McQuarrie.
cast: Tom Cruise, Rosamund Pike, Richard Jenkins.
In an innocent heartland city, five are shot dead by an expert sniper. The police quickly identify and arrest the culprit, and build a slam-dunk case. But instead of confessing, the accused man writes the words, “Get Jack Reacher.” Reacher himself sees the news report and turns up in the city. The defense is immensely relieved, but Reacher has come to bury the guy. Shocked at the accused’s request, Reacher sets out to confirm for himself the absolute certainty of the man’s guilt, but comes up with more than he bargained for.
Jack Reacher and the casting of Tom Cruise. In the series of novels by Lee Child this movie is based on, Jack Reacher is an ex-MP detective. after the army Jack is a drifter gets his pension every month has no job, no home, no family. except in the book Jack is 6’5″and big and tom cruise in only 5’9″. LIKE i said minor detail. They check with the author of the book Lee Child If tom could play the part and the rest is history. It is a thriller action movie that we din’t see for a while. A bit predictable unfortunately but it is still good. You have a nice little surprise in this movie Robert Duvall who plays a small part in this. Also it is funny when the 2 men tries to beat the shit out of Jack but it turn out first that the bathroom is too small for 2 big men. It is like the 3 stooges trying to beat up Jack. There is a little cameo be the writer Lee Child. Cool movie. Can’t wait for another one. It has to be has good or better no pressure there. I forgot to mentioned there is another little surprise Werner Herzog plays the bad guy in this one.
