Trailer: Jack Reacher

Sep 14 // Thor Latham

Tom Cruise is Jack 'Diminutive' Reacher

How many movies have we seen where Tom Cruise hurts people like this? Someone should go tally that up just for curiosity's sake.

I have to admit I know exceptionally little about the Jack Reacher novels, other than that the man is a hardcore bad-ass and is more physically akin to Dwayne Johnson than Tom Cruise. But hey, if the ass-kicking is delivered should we really criticize the man's stature?

This trailer consists entirely of two elements: bone breaking and sexy car driving. That's a winning formula for the average male movie goer, so we probably have a modest hit on our hands. Hopefully next time we get a trailer that hints at some plot, unless it is literally that Jack Reacher has a vendetta against bones and the bodies that house them. That'd be...different.
