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.
