Hollyweird honchos should have listened to book-reader screechers, who think that tiny Tom Cruise is not a suitable movie "Jack Reacher". Big blond Dolph Lundgren could have and would have been a much better star; at least for those readers who are bitchin' about Mr. Cruise not resembling the book author's Jack Reacher description.

Jack Reacher has never looked up to his opponents. Having watched the trailer for Jack Reacher, Tom Cruise was looking up at them. The film makers should have stuck with the description in Lee Child's books. Tom Cruise is the polar opposite and even though he is a fine actor, how on earth did he land the role!! Dolph Lungren amonst others (Thomas Jane, Sam Worthington and at a push Vigio Mortenson) would have made much better choices.

"Jack Reacher" was a good movie, eductional entertaining thriller with good cast. There was more acting than action and Tom Cruise did a good job. I still like my action stars, including Lundgren, VanDamme, Seagal, Stallone, Schwarzenegger, Norris and Willis. I hate to see them be older than me.

It took years for me to get to know the name of the big blond hulk that is so obviously Reacher. Tom Cruise would earn much respect if he steps aside and stops pretending to be big tough and laconic.

Dolph Lundgren we will once again see in "Expendables 3"! Now, if only Steven Seagal could and would join him and his pals! No reason for these dudes to feud. Like I mean, Seagal could do the close-ups and a younger thinner stunt double could do this bigger fight scenes.
