Re: General Movie Discussion Part II
Finally saw what was arguably my most anticipated film of the year.
Jack Reacher - 7/10
Big fan of the book series but I probably would have liked this a lot more not having any expectations (and they were pretty big), in fact I think most people who follow the books will feel the same way but wouldn't be a problem for someone who has little or no knowledge of the character. It worked, despite feeling really "off" at points and Cruise wasn't quite as bad as I was suspecting but I still would have preferred someone (anyone) else in the title role. Robert Duvall's character was a lot of fun for the 15 minutes he was in the movie though. Also (sorta spoiler) I thought it was a really bad idea to show the sniper's face at the beginning of the film, kinda ruined some of the plot.
Worth seeing if its something you think would interest you but its probably not going to blow you away or anything.
