That was me, but it was in another thread. I stand by this statement. There is certainly nothing awesome about him.

Yeah, I think I am mixing up the threads because I read that other one and then jumped to this one so I responded to both threads in one thread for some frightening reason, lol. Didn't remember who said it, though.

I am not a huge fan of his but I wouldn't say he is overrated. He is good in the majority of movies he has been in and he can play different characters well. He isn't always the serious guy, he isn't always the action guy, he isn't always the funny guy. IMO, anyway.

Yeah he's fine in most things he's in and can put in some solid performances, but as long as we're not saying he's a transformative actor that makes you forget he's performing he's not overrated. When I say he's overrated it's that I don't think he's that compelling a leading man, yet he's been the lead in a ton of films. I just don't see the appeal.

Despite the fact Reacher is essentually a homeless man, just cut this dudes beard off and he'd work.

Probably could have found someone better, but Cruise looks good in this role. I don't ever care to watch Rock in anything he's in.

And its not the size issue that hurts Cruise playing Reacher. Its the fact no one buys Cruise as a silent, brooding badass and Reacher is obviously a character inspired by guys like Clint Eastwood or Charles Bronson. The scene where the guys confronted him in the bar trying to pick a fight felt so wrong.

Obviously however the issue there is neither Stevenson or Hurst are box office draws, so fans of the book were always going to have to compromise. Its an alright movie, something someone who has no expectations would enjoy I think but for people like Rush and myself its kind of disheartening when a character we've grown to love over the last 15 years is played by someone who just is a total misconception of our own expectations. And that seems to be a fairly regular feeling from fans of the book.
Exactly, i didn't expect anyone to match the physical description of Reacher but i at least expected they'd get that brooding drifter look right. Tom Cruise is an alright actor, but i just don't feel like he's right for the part. Or at least how i pictured Reacher which is part of the problem. If i wasn't a fan of the books and just watched the movie i wouldn't know/notice it. Will have to download it later and give it a watch.

If Charles Bronson in his prime was still around, no doubt he would be Reacher.

Tom Cruise is a good actor, just watch Rock of Ages, the film is pretty bad IMO but Tom shines in the movie and he's the only good thing about it. I think that there are plenty of actors who could've played Jack Reacher but the same thing can be said about every movie and character in Hollywood. There are many talented fellas, I would've been happier with Guy Pearce in this role but that's my opinion.
