This Is My Rifle...

Here, Reacher proves that he’s as deadly with a rifle as he is with his fists. Aficionados of Child’s creation will know that much of One Shot’s plot revolves around sniping prowess - both Barr's and, incidentally, Reacher's own. In the books, he's the only non-Marine to have won the Wimbledon Cup - an award for sniping rather than tennis, fyi. The last line of Reacher’s voiceover is a nod to the title of another Child book: “Because I have nothing to lose.”

2 I don't know the books...
...but the name Jack Reacher is shite. It's like a bad Arnold Shwarzenegger character (thinking Last Action Hero). Is it supposed to be crap? Is it an in-joke between the author and the readers? Cos by the looks of the trailer, I'm guessing it's not. Any-hoo, I like the Cruiser as an actor, so I'll probably give it a go. He doesn't immediately strike me as a one-man-army though. Shame Liam Neeson did Taken. This would've been a good fit for him. More

4 Looking good...
This is looking good... after playing Vincent in "Collateral" Cruise certainly can play "badass" and he'll bring this part to life! Can't wait the full thang! More

9 Alternatives
Never read a Reacher book, but from what I do know, aren't there a lot of people who are far more suitable for this part? Tom Hardy is obviously busy with Mad Max, but what about: Hugh Jackman, Josh Holloway, Chris Hemsworth, Eric Bana. Or if you want to go way left-field Kevin Durand, Joe Manganiello..? There are more. Cruise is an odd choice and it looks it from the trailers. More

10 Not assuaging any doubts
Certainly doesn't assuage any doubts about Cruise as Reacher. Everything about this trailer is awful: the Mission Impossible style music, the fact that "Reacher" is looking UP at the bad guys, the overly wordy, cheesy dialogue. Again, the way Reacher looks is a major, major part of his character. It's just not Reacher without the imposing size and muscle. Not only that, but Cruise just cannot put across Reacher's stoic, silent demeanor, despite his attempts at "acting." This is the worst casting in history, all because of Cruise's ego in casting himself in a part clearly completely wrong for him. And it is one of the worst missed opportunities for a great movie series ever. More
