A FAST-PACED, EXHILERATING FILM, STARRING TOM CRUISE AS LEE CHILDS SUPER-HERO JACK REACHER.
There have been a plethora of macho moaners, agonizing (kvetching) over the fact that Lee Childs?s 6?5?, iconic protagonist, mighty, ex -military, super ?hero, ?Jack Reacher? is depicted in the film by 5?7?, Tom Cruise; groan no more; Cruise is sensational and captures the essence and psychology of the reclusive hero; in other words he ?nails it?...
Surprisingly, the movie is richer because of Cruise?s performance; no gimmicky innuendos, ?tweaking, winking at the audience?; he plays it straight from commencement to conclusion; his height is never masked; a fitting example of, ?good things coming in small packages.? His pristine physical physique, Martial Art skills, render his opponents impotent; exhilarating chase scenes, Reacher cannot be felled by mere mortal miscreants...
THREE & 1/2 STARS!!!
