Until the movie news erupted with the most infuriating choice I have ever heard. Take a second moment to look at his description. Now picture Tom Cruise. He is only what, 5-6 or 5-7. Along with a hundred pounds less muscle mass than Reacher.
Cruise has been chosen to cast as Jack Reacher in the 2013 movie One Shot, which involves the random shooting of five people by a rogue sniper. But why? One of Reacher's characterizations is the fact that he is so tall and massive in general. Imposing and able to support his death-threats to bad guys.
Do you see the problem here?
Oh and Mr. Lee, I don't care what you say about metaphorical height from the books. "It's just a metaphor for an unstoppable force,".... Bull!
I will not see this movie. But as long as Reacher doesn't shrink in size in the books; I will read them. I'm too devoted to him to stop now. That is all.
Review of the movie Drive tomorrow.
Read on and write on folks!
