“You think I’m a hero? I am not a hero. I’m a drifter with nothing to lose.” – Jack Reacher
Number of Times Seen – 1 (18 April 2013)
Brief Synopsis – Jack Reacher is a former Army policeman who is called upon to help sort out a mysterious sniper attack
My Take on it – I have read one of the Reacher books and found the character very interesting and compelling. Didn’t really picture Tom Cruise as him, but close enough I guess :). Haven’t yet read the book that this one is based on, but from what I know about the character of Jack Reacher, he seems to be portrayed faithfully by Cruise. The plot is very tight and I think they did a very nice job of adapting this movie from a book which can always be quite difficult since in a book, we learn the whole thought process of the characters and understand what is happening on a deeper level. This movie makes me want to read more books about Jack Reacher!
Bottom Line – Fun enjoyable action thriller. Recommended
Rating – Globe Worthy (8/10)
