But the accused man claims he's innocent and says "Get Jack Reacher." Reacher himself sees the news report and turns up in the city. The defense is immensely relieved, but Reacher has come to bury the guy. Shocked at the accused's request, Reacher sets out to confirm for himself the absolute certainty of the man's guilt, but comes up with more than he bargained for.Written by Anonymous
The film Jack Reacher is based upon a series of books that have been really popular. This film starts at around the 7th book, but thats the start of the series basically. Anyways if you have read the books you'll know that Jack Reacher is meant to be a huge army bloke, 6.4" so I met your wondering how can Tom Cruise one of the smallest action stars play this character? Well firstly they think that majority of people going to see this film haven't read the books. Secondly there is a lot of camera trickery such as having the camera shooting below his head height. But as the film on a whole taking it on face value not any of the books into account its is a very good film, thrilling and tense with a bit of mystery and action in there to make it more enjoyable. It really makes you wonder how many innocent people go to jail with out people making the effort to look deep...
So on the whole I was impressed with this film and there for I shall give it an 8/10. Won;t be a timeless classic but defiantly worth a watch if your into action films.
