According to the blogosphere, folks weren't really feeling Rock of Ages, even though we here gladly rocked out to it. So, one of the stars of the movie and arguably one of the biggest stars of his generation, Tom Cruise, hopes to woo audiences with his latest film, Jack Reacher.
Back in the genre that bonafide him, action films, Cruise stars as the title character, who presumably is framed for a crime he didn't commit. But it's up to him to find the real culprit. And, if you've seen any of his films, you know he can.
Here's the official synopsis from Collider:
When a gunman takes five lives with six shots, all evidence points to the suspect in custody. On interrogation, the suspect offers up a single note: “Get Jack Reacher!” So begins an extraordinary chase for the truth, pitting Jack Reacher against an unexpected enemy, with a skill for violence and a secret to keep.
Rosamund Pike (Wrath of the Titans, Die Another Day), Richard Jenkins, Robert Duvall and David Oyelowo (Red Tails, Rise of the Planet of the Apes) also star in the movie. But, just watching the trailer, we all know that Cruise will command every scene. Check it out below.
Jack Reacher hits theaters December 21st.
