"Jack Reacher (McQuarrie, 2012)"


  

          

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kK7y8Ou0VvM

Tom Cruise is not who I pictured when described in "Killing Floor" (If you haven't read that book, read that shit!!! I guarantee you'll finish it in a week).

But other than that this is JR. Goddamn this preview is like watching the page jump to life on screen. I'm there. Longo where you at?

Ugh. Just seems like this one is a prime candidate for the "fans of the books who get a little too pissy when the movie isn't identical to the movie bitch loudly, everywhere they can, and every chance they get", because Tom Cruise is pretty much the opposite of the guy you picture in the books.

I mean... there's pretty much nobody with chops and charisma that I can think of for the role. Maybe Ahhhnold way, way back in the day, could've at least given us the physical sense of who this guy is.

Personally I'm interested in how they translate him to Crooze.

In response to Reply # 3


  

          

As a fan of the series, when they first announced TC I gave it the side eye. But after watching this trailer that's Reacher. I completely understand if niggas cry foul on TC. Dude is not everyone's cup of tea. With that said, it does look like they're staying true to the character, so the bitching should be to a minimum. Question is are they gonna stick by the books and keep it R rated? (Doubt it).

I love Tom Cruise...but Jack Reacher's SIZE is pivotal to his character.

I'm not impressed by the trailer at all.

Surprisingly, Cruise was the best thing about this. His portrayal of Reacher was in strong spirit to the books, so my hats off to him.

But otherwise, this is standard movie of the week fare. Which is a shame cause "One Shot" is an excellent book. Problem with all that comes down to the script. It was just a bad translation. Also, the score didn't help at all. And some of the scenes were lighted like broadcast network drama such as CSI or Elementary.

Everyone seemed to like it. I hope if there is a sequel, they can get someone worthy to make a better JR movie.

The story is a mess, the things that the villains do are ridiculous. Tom cruise is very good though. The action scenes (the car chase and the quarry scene) are well done.

Also what was up with the limited use of Werner Herzog. They introduce a creepy villain(his voice is scary)and then they don't really do much with him.

This is the kind of mid-budget hard-boiled action film Christopher McQuarrie showed us he could deliver when he wrote The Way of the Gun. This half-ironic, half-intense style suits Cruise well.

It's not life-changing, but I laughed very hard, was held in great suspense for a few sequences, and got to leave doing my best Werner Herzog impression. Not sure what more you want.

This is Cruise's best non-sequel in close to a decade. Thoroughly enjoyable. The perfect flick for me to buy on Blu-Ray and pop in next summer on a rainy day.

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

but a predictable, tedious experience in the theater

the thrill-less thriller, the suspense-less suspense film

this is probably what Alex Cross aspired to

2 hours and some odd minutes of Tom Cruise hitting his marks and using his words.

Werner Herzog is criminally underused and really the only sign of life during the movie unfortunately they strand him by having him say too little and do even less.

I spent the second act ogling Rosamund Pike's cleavage waiting for her and Tom Cruise to confirm the plot that they made obvious in act 1.

The best part of the movie was hearing Jack Reacher talked about like Bill Brasky.

Christopher McQuarrie is 0-2 w/ me. Only adding to my theory that screenwriters make the worst directors.

I would have liked this movie a lot more if I hadn't been really watching it. Wait for it on TNT or Trans-Atlantic flight when you have something else to do or nowhere else to go.

A bit predictable. It's your typical conventional procedural crime thriller but with genuine humor. All around acting and action were good.

Werner Herzog should've been a Bond villain. He's born to be one.

Yeah, Rosamund Pike's cleavage were definitely representing in the 2nd half of the film, a bit distracting.

I wouldn't mind a franchise out of this. I mean, they have several books, why not?

This was awful. There were so many dumb plot points that made no sense that I noticed the one that mattered and wrote it off as someone's farfetched imagination. The acting was terrible -- although I have no quarrels with Cruise.

But I still kinda sorta liked it.

^^^ you're starting to understand the appeal of the action blockbuster, Janey! lol

How awesome was the scene with Herzog explaining his fingers? I feel like I'm gonna watch that scene on Youtube a billion times.

Even if Pittsburgh was a character in the movie, it was, storywise, kinda meh.

Shout out to David Oyelowo, Rosamund Pike and Jai Courtney (Spartacus). Y'all deserved way better than what you got but you *ALL* did well with what you had.

Tom Cruise: yea, he's not Jack Reacher at all (and assuming Gerard Butler could do it is a fucking fallacy. For starters, you'd want the person to be able to CARRY THE MOVIE, BE IMPOSING, and not look like someone smashed his face in with a aluminum covered BRICK. ugh) but he worked in this role.

The movie itself was okay. A relatively solid B

I was entertained for most of the movie, bored in other parts...

The fight scenes were dope, the bathroom one hilarious, the car chase was dope, Rosamund Pikes titty meat perfectly teased all movie and I liked the lil dialogue about being free while watching the desk job folk. Duvall cracked me up at the end and Herzog's fingerless villain was ridiculous great.

3.5/5

I finally figure out how to get 4K UHD Remux files with HDR to display properly on my TV - so I downloaded this to try it out.

This movie is good in many ways, and awful in many others.


The awfulness is: The dialog is so expository it's insane.

The good is: The action pieces are compelling.
The scene where he's jumped by 3 guys inside the house was funny.
The final battle absolutely built tension and paid off.



Rosamund Pike's tits DOMINATED several scenes in a very un-needed but not un-appreciated way.
