“Jack Reacher” the Movie
On the weekend it was great to get some one on one time with Kim, my lovely wife. We went to watch the movie “Jack Reacher”. The movie is based on Lee Child’s book “One Shot”. The book is one in a series of books about a character called Jack Reacher. I was put onto the series by an Army friend of mine, Duncan, who won the Jack Reacher look-a-like competition. He even got to travel to the USA to attend various functions and meet the author.
Jack Reacher is a former Military Policeman who travels around the USA with nothing, but the clothes on his back. Where ever he goes he finds people in trouble and helps out in a way the law is not able to help. The books are full of action, where Jack Reacher is in the middle of it all.
I enjoyed the action and the storyline of the movie. The only disappointing part was the choice of Tom Cruise for the role of Jack Reacher. In the book Jack Reacher is a larger character that is well built, like my friend Duncan. Though Tom Cruise is a good actor, he just did not have the size and build for this character.
Overall we had a good night. I enjoyed spending some time out alone with my wife and we got to see an action filled movie. What more could you ask for?
