Although Cruise can certainly carry a film, and has done some good work over the years. I have difficulty seperating my perception of the person from the roles he plays. From the scientology, to the bizarro marriage stuff, to the obtuse egocentric shit he spouts in interview. I have been rooting for years for Tom Cruise career to fail. Unfortunately he undeniably has a certain talent, and he makes sound choices for the most part.
Jack Reacher is a film I would see if it had say Renner, Gosling or even fucking Statham in the lead.....but with Cruise, I just cant do it.
