Maneroch -> .38 not .22 (4/7/2012 2:02:35 PM)

it was a .38 that he was shot with in Tripwire not a measly .22.




Madhava -> Not assuaging any doubts (4/7/2012 2:27:06 PM)

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.




crimebusterofthesea -> Alternatives (4/7/2012 3:34:48 PM)

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.




mclane1 -> top stuff (4/7/2012 6:41:00 PM)

like roadhouse, hard target, any which way but loose and they live all moulded together!




BluesBoy -> Cliche Ridden Yawn Fest (4/7/2012 11:16:08 PM)

Nuf sed.




warren7355 -> (5/7/2012 10:24:21 AM)

Have to admit I've never read the books, but page 4 made me larf. Not exactly selling it to me....




i_wascloned -> The Car (5/7/2012 11:41:06 AM)

I believe it's a chevrolet Nova super sport, please anyone feel free to correct me if i'm wrong!




Sub Rosa -> Looking good... (5/7/2012 12:46:56 PM)

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!




Porter -> I don't know the books... (5/7/2012 4:51:38 PM)

...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.

hemibell -> wrong car... (10/12/2012 11:20:41 PM)

It's quite obviously a Chevrolet Chevelle SS
