Re: Jack Reacher yes,no, maybe so
The author Lee Child was quoted as saying, "Reacher’s size in the books is a metaphor for an unstoppable force, which Cruise portrays in his own way."
Looks like the author really wants the movie to do well!
Cruise portrays that unstoppable force using the unstoppable madness in his eyes.
A movie aiming low should not be praised for hitting that target.
