2012 Movie Review: Jack Reacher out on DVD
The movie Jack Reacher opened at theaters on December 21, 2012. The movie stars Tom Cruise as the title character. With a budget of $60 million dollars, the movie made over $80 million in the United States. It finished with a total $216.5 million dollars worldwide. It was directed and written by Christopher McQuarrie. It is based on One Shot by Lee Child.
The movie was released on DVD on May 7, 2013. It stars Tom Cruise, Rosamund Pike, Richard Jenkins and Werner Herzog. When 5 seemingly random people are shot by a sniper an investigation leads the police to former Army sniper who has a history of shooting people in the streets when he was in the Army. When he meets his lawyer, Alex Rodin, all he tells her is to find Jack Reacher. She learns that Reacher is a former Army Criminal Investigator. Reacher upon hearing the news arrives. He learns Rodin wants him to help her defend the guy but Reacher doesn't want to help him.
This movie is okay. I was not thrilled when Cruise was cast as Reacher. I will say he did an okay job. I do think the movie lacked the action i was expecting. Movie got better once Robert Duvall came into the picture. Most of the cast tried to hard in this film. Over acting is a terrible thing in a movie. Overall I give the movie a six.
A movie that receives a score of 1-2 is basically a bad movie an i wouldn't waste my time watching it. A movie scoring 3-4 is a movie that had a very few moments that you didn't fell like turning the movie off. Getting a score of 5-6 states that a movie is okay. A score of 7-8 means the movie is pretty good an you will probably watch it again an might even add it to your DVD collection. A score of 9 means it is a great movie that needs to be a must see for everyone. Also, you need to add it to your dvd collection. A movie that gets a 10 is an instant classic. This will not happen that much an if it does then that movie must be any serious movie watchers DVD collection.
