The trailer is in Russian, but from what I could translate from the bad audio (ya girl speaks some Russian… Thanks, Army!), the guy in the hospital bed is attesting to just how far Jack Reacher (Tom Cruise) will go. He has no boundaries. The rest of the film is Tom Cruise fighting the bad guys.
Movie is based on Lee Child’s book, One Shot. Here’s the book synopsis:
Six shots. Five dead. One heartland city thrown into a state of terror. But within hours the cops have it solved: a slam-dunk case. Except for one thing. The accused man says: You got the wrong guy. Then he says: Get Reacher for me.
And sure enough, ex—military investigator Jack Reacher is coming. He knows this shooter–a trained military sniper who never should have missed a shot. Reacher is certain something is not right–and soon the slam-dunk case explodes.
Now Reacher is teamed with a beautiful young defense lawyer, moving closer to the unseen enemy who is pulling the strings. Reacher knows that no two opponents are created equal. This one has come to the heartland from his own kind of hell. And Reacher knows that the only way to take him down is to match his ruthlessness and cunning–and then beat him shot for shot.
From what I’ve read, Jack Reacher is supposed to be a lot more formidable physically. We all know by now that Cruise is on the shorter end of things. He’s in great shape, but that may not be enough. I don’t know if I see him as Jack Reacher. That may be a problem.
