If you're a Jack Reacher fan like me, you may find it ludicrous that they cast 5' 7" Tom Cruise in the role of 6' 5" 230lb. Jack Reacher. OK--sure, he's a big star--I get it.  Other than that, the movie isn't too bad.  This scene at the range is a little hard to swallow.  Our hero walks all the way out to the thousand yd. targets and posts a target center which looks like it measures about 12" X 12".  He doen't secure the bottom of the target--leaves it free to blow in the wind--then fires a rifle that was zeroed by someone else and with his first shot he's only about 3" outside the X ring.  And, oh yeah, Robert Duvall spots his bullet holes at 1000 yds. with a normal, portable spotting scope.  They should have gotten more input from the author--the books are more believable.

45ACPete,

You're right. Having a runt play JACK REACHER is LUDICROUS. 

Ever since I heard tom cruise was going to play JACK REACHER I've been unable to read another book.

I feel sorry for author LEE CHILD.  To have your creation turned into a midget. I know he's making money.

 

But imagine having Jimmy Durante playing JOHN WAYNE'S "Sgt. Stryker".
