    Come on Beacon Pictures, let's get Repairman Jack on the screen.

    As much as I love Reacher.....and Cruise is not Reacher.....a RJ film should have been made first.

    A boy toy midget playing Jack Reacher is very strange. They must have offered Child a sweet deal to let them put his franchise in jeopardy like this.

    This is the comment I left on amazon after I read nothing to lose:
    Lee Child took what was once a good book series and turned it into his own left leaning anti war political rant. I'm done reading his stuff. It's garbage and it's disappointing. I gave it a one star rating simply because zero stars aren't offered as an option.

    I then went on to toss the book into the garbage can. I NEVER do that. I was pissed!
    It was the last Reacher novel I ever read. Lee Child sucks. Tom Cruise is perfect for the Reacher role. I would rather watch howling dogs copulate. The stuff doesn't hold a candle to the real Jack. Hollywood needs to pull their heads out of their lofty rear ends and get to work on The tomb. And let Mr. Wilson write the screenplay and direct the movie so it doesn't get totally screwed up.

    You should see all the threads by Reacher fans on the Lee Child board. I stopped reading them after the first week of the announcement. It got so overwhelming I couldn't read them all. No one wants Tom Cruise in this movie.

    I agree with you. Something on HBO would work well I think.

    And welcome to the board, Alaric.
