Jack Reacher: ShockYa Movie Review

ShockYa: For a fifty-year-old man in Hollywood movies, Tom Cruise is a cool guy. He’s cool in the role of Jack Reacher, but not in the sense of early James Bond. You could not imagine Jack Reacher making a cappuccino in 30 seconds as Sean Connery can do when playing 007. Nor would he think of telling a bartender that he wants his drinks shaken, not stirred. But Reacher is cool in the sense that he displays emotions only in a low key. He goes after criminals because that’s the way he is, not because he is enraged by what they do, but there are exceptions. One of them appears in the current movie which is based on the ninth of Lee Child’s seventeen-novels’ accounts of the man, and that exception occurs when the bad guys are inflicting pain on people he knows and likes and especially if he had made promises to the victims to seek justice for them. (Cinema, Jack Reacher) B+/A+
