"Jack Reacher" is a throwback action thriller — taut and muscular, gruff and cool. Based on Lee Child's 2005 novel, "One Shot," it offers viewers familiar but forgotten action pleasures: directorial competence, a screenplay with just enough wit, an honest-to-goodness movie star and supporting actors who hold their own.
“The Firm,” “Taps” and “Jerry Maguire” are just a few of Mr. Cruise’s best films.
It's easy enough to think of the "Mission: Impossible" franchise as a vanity series for its star, Tom Cruise, who plays superspy Ethan Hunt. But "Ghost Protocol," the fourth entry in the series is better understood as a coming out party for its director, Brad Bird, who firmly establishes himself as one of Hollywood's foremost action craftsmen.
