Who cares about what height Tom Cruise is? He is a great actor and will bring depth to the character which is better than having a lump of wood playing him!! Not all characters from books work as well on the screen so his height don't mean shiz!! Look at the quality films that Tom has given us - very rarely does he disappoint but the haters can keep moaning!

When I heard Tom Cruise had been cast I decided there an then never to watch the movie. I'm sorry but Jack Reacher is all about his physical size. Its what makes him so confident in a fight, I hate hate hate the fact that Tom Cruise has been cast. It makes me cross. As I'm reading one of the Jack Reacher novels at the mo I'm just like hell no Tom Cruise is a crap choice. errrrgggghhh makes me mad just thinking about it. PS I know the books won't wind any awards for being incredible works of fiction or anything, but they are fun, and I like Jack Reacher, I dislike Tom Cruise - alot.

Tom Cruise a great actor? When di that happen? How can a midget play the part of a 6' 5" man? Thios is another case of an author selling out to the movie industry. The only reason for castingCruise is because he is popular with women.This is one Jack Reacher reader who will not be a Jack Reacher viewer. I hope it is the biggest cinema flop in history.

Tom Cruise? Greatest actor of our time? Simply aghast at the thought of Tom Cruise playing Jack Reacher. What if he 5'7" wearing heels? Just watched the trailer in which he takes on someone a head taller than himself...looks ridiculous. Readers fell in love with the character Jack Reacher who is a tall, rugged, unassuming man traveling through life on a code of honesty and justice. A man who matches his physical description and abilities cannot be played by someone who is of such a small stature. Even if they were equally talented...the small person loses on reach, weight and strength behind his moves. Not believable which is a killer for any movie or writing
outside of the fantasy or science fiction genre. I won't bother going to the movie. There are other people available who have the size and even though they may not be well known...who knows given a chance they might be the next big star. Liam Neeson, Kevin Sorbo, Channin Tatum. Surprised at Lee Child's naivete.

You read the books...author bio indicates movie rights...you think a Diry Harry/Rambo/Nick Nolte type of star to play the role.
.....and TOM CRUISE???
Is Jack Reacher gay?
Does he jump up and down on couches?
Is he a religious fanatic??
Will he be 5'6" in his next book? (Like to know how)
You sold out, Lee!!!!!!!
SELLOUT!!!
Poor Jack Reacher---to bad he can't doesn't have a say so.
You sold him out, Lee.
I'm finding a new author!!!!!
What a disappointment!!!!!!!!!!!!

Lee doesn't need the money. He created a great folk hero, and turned him into an unbelievable midget. I feel fortunate in one sense that Cruise is so physically different than Reacher that I can still read the novels. Lee sold out. I will NOT see the movie. THE END.

A film didn't "need" to be made, but it seems money did. I'm not surprised at any of this, but, jeez, what a waste.

Well if their not taking Cruises lack of size & build into consideration then surely The Rock would've been a great choice as he ticks most of the boxes unless that is they have anything against the colour of his skin?

Having now seen the movie I would like to offer congratulations to all involved. What a superb flick. Beautifully acted, produced and delivered. The plot was faithful to the book, script was intelligent and supported a completely coherent plot (something of a novelty these days). I note Cruise produced the movie so hopefully he has the rights to all the books. How much better this was than the Mission Impossible spoofs and other "A-Team esque" attempts at action films that we see so often these days. Excellent.

Love the Reacher novels; won't see any of the movies. Hard to look at someone that is 5'-7" 147 lbs and imagine Reacher at 6'-5" ,250 lbs. what a waste. Hope all the movies tank
