So, I just watched the trailer for Jack Reacher: Never Go Back and I was about to make my standard Tom-Cruise-Is-Creepy joke but then I remembered that I liked the last Mission Impossible film. And, before that, he was great in Edge of Tomorrow.
If you can look past his affiliation with Scientology (which, admittedly, is not an easy thing to do), Tom Cruise really does well in these action roles. It’s hard to explain why but he pulls it off. Maybe it’s because he doesn’t look like your typical action star and yet, he’s still totally believable doing action star stuff. Maybe it’s because he actually seems to be having fun in these roles, as opposed to certain other grim-faced actors.
Anyway, here’s Tom Cruise in the trailer for Jack Reacher: Never Go Back.
