Jack Reacher

Jack Reacher

Rated M.

Tom Cruise is a brave man to take on author Lee Child’s beloved crime-solving drifter, Jack Reacher. For a start, at 1.7m tall, Tom was always going to fall short of a character who is meant to be a burly 1.95m; and although his star power hasn’t waned, Tom’s days as an action hero are numbered. In the film, which is based on the 2005 book One Shot, Jack helps uncover evidence about a mass shooting. It’s a clunky tale with some boring moments, but Tom gives it his all, even if at times it feels like he’s playing Maverick all over again.

Rating: 2/5
