Jack Reacher is the new Tom Cruise vehicle as an action star trailing on the unexpected success of Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, which would have been Cruise’s goodbye from the franchise. Sucks for Jeremy Renner, since the movie did well on the box office and Tom Cruise is coming back for more. It’s weird how all the action heroes are aging, isn’t it? I mean, Tom Cruise is 50, twice divorced and kind of a nutjob, but he did make some good movies, I’ll give him that. Not sure if Jack Reacher would be any good, but there you have it. What I know is that The Avengers is obviously the best action movie of the year and I can’t expect that from any other movie coming out in 2012.
