Rating: 250 Degrees (Out of 360)
Tom Cruise is an odd bird. And I'm not talking about crazy Oprah stuff, I'm talking about his tenacity regarding being 50 and doing his own action stunts. This movie didn't have a ton of stunts, and was quite predictable but on the plus side, he ran at full sprint for maybe 4-5 minutes of screen time in this go around.
This felt a bit like a Taken sequel, but with less martial arts. Reacher is out to protect his daughter (maybe) and this turns into a show of the 15 year old shows off some useful skills and so they take her with to the danger areas.
I find this whole style of plot to be a bit boring and predictable, but I did enjoy a lot of this movie. I really think Cobie Smulders was shining in this one. It's just so crazy that a type cast role like Robin in How I Met Your Mother can be over turned with action roles in both the MCU and in this movie. She's great.
I do recommend seeing this movie. I think this would appeal to even the casual action movie fan.
