If there is one type of movie I absolutely love it's one that has mystery, romance, a chase, a twist, drama and a good old fashioned message. Well, Tom Cruise is great in "Jack Reacher". He may not be everything people who have read Lee Child's book series of the same name expect, but he certainly has presence. Watch the trailer below and you get just a little taste of the excitement.
Rosamund Pike and Robert Duvall are both excellent co-stars. Duvall has just the right balance of roughness, humour and attitude for his role. The film keeps you guessing where the corruption leads. It keeps you guessing about the romantic direction of the lead characters. Apart from some obvious lines, the plot is not predictable and the pace is just right.
The film has encouraged me to read the book series. I am very much looking forward to the next instalment. You should go and see it on the big screen. Take a friend.
