Review: Tom Cruise Is No 'Jack Reacher' But The Movie Is Saved By The Script

December 22nd, 2012 8:23am EST
Jack Reacher
Okay, so here's the thing. I absolutely love the character of Jack Reacher. He was created by British author, Lee Childs. Lee has written 18 books and they all feature Reacher.

Reacher is one of my favorite fictional characters. The guy is huge, 6'5-250 lbs, blond hair, big hands, big feet, big body...big everything. The dude is like a house - a huge house.

He's also gruff and not at all slick. He lives off the grid, buys his clothes and underwear wear from thrift stores. Wears them for a few days, then throws them away and repeats the process. Reacher says 'It's easier and cheaper t...

Jack Reacher
Film bosses cut two violent scenes from Tom Cruise's upcoming thriller Jack Reacher to secure a less restrictive age rating in Britain.

Movie regulators in the U.K. were set to slap the drama with a 15 classification; meaning viewers aged 14 and under would not be able to see the blockbuster.

Nonetheless, distributors were eager to land a 12A rating to open the film up to a younger audience and sought advice from regulators - and as a result, they cut several gory scenes out of the final edit.
