To say I’m not a huge fan of Tom Cruise I definitely loved this film. I love Rosamund Pike she’s a brilliant actress and she proved how good she was in Gone Girl. The film also stars Jai Courtney who stars as Eric in the Divergent series and is in the new Terminator film this year, I’m a huge fan of his too. He’s literally the reason I watched the film.I loved the plot, it was very mysterious and it takes you on a thrilling ride. 5 People are shot dead and the police arrest a suspect only for him to say they got the wrong guy. Jack Reacher (Tom Cruise) is called and the deeper he delves into the case the more twists that come his way. He teams up with a defence lawyer (Rosamund Pike) who helps him uncover the truth.
Jack Reacher is the main protagonist in a series of books by Lee Child. This 2012 film is based on the novel titled One Shot. The upcoming new Jack Reacher novel will be the twentieth in the series. One Shot is book 9 of the series. There is a sequel for the film in the making which is title Never Go Back, which is book 18 in the series. It’s a good job they don’t follow on from each other because with them just making the films from random books and not doing it in order it wouldn’t have made sense.
I really liked this film. It’s a great thriller and very entertaining. I can’t wait for the sequel but there is still no word on when it will be released. It;s already been 3 years, hope it’s not too much longer otherwise people won’t go to see it. After watching the film I’m tempted to read the books but with there being 20 of them, I’m not sure yet.
