Paramount Pictures has released the first clip from director Christopher McQuarrie’s adaptation Jack Reacher.  The film is based on the popular series of novels by Lee Child and stars Tom Cruise as a man who exists outside the law and exacts his own brand of ruthless justice.  Some fans were upset over the casting of Cruise since the Jack Reacher character in the novels is an imposing 6’5” and 250 lbs., but this clip does a fine job of proving that Cruise’s Reacher is plenty intimidating as we see him take on five “bad guys” at once.  Say what you will about Cruise’s personal life, but the guy always fully commits to a role and I’m definitely encouraged by this debut clip.

Hit the jump to watch the clip.  The film also stars Rosamund PikeRobert DuvallRichard JenkinsDavid Oyelowo, and Werner Herzog.  Jack Reacher opens on December 21st.

Here’s the official synopsis for Jack Reacher:

When a gunman takes five lives with six shots, all evidence points to the suspect in custody. On interrogation, the suspect offers up a single note: “Get Jack Reacher!” So begins an extraordinary chase for the truth, pitting Jack Reacher against an unexpected enemy, with a skill for violence and a secret to keep.

    I don’t know about the rest of the movie but they nailed it with that clip. The tone and Cruise’s performance were spot-on from the novels. Awesome.

    Looks good but…Tom is just so short. You can tell. Look at the other guys. Head taller. Toms like what 5″7? Im 5’11 and think thats way too short. Can’t imagine what thats like for Cruise…

    Anyways, still gonna see it of course! :)

  • ManBoyDudeChild

    Buzzfunk… 5’11 isn’t short, I’m 6’0, we are both well above average height and considered ‘tall’ by most measures, haha. People who are taller are obviously taller, but there is nothing short about 5’11. =)

    This clip just made me want to see this movie, I wasn’t expecting that at all.

    I think it makes more sense to have Jack Reacher look more “average”. If they had him appear as he does in the novels, you wouldn’t feel like he was in any real danger, I guess making him look more like an every day guy with an exceptional set of skills makes for a better adaption on screen. And not many guys fitting the physical description could carry a movie or franchise like this, has to be a very certain type to carry the “tone” correctly, although I think Chris Hemsworth could have done a decent job.

    this is going to bomb HARD. Replace Cruise with a lesser known actor, and does anyone go see this movie? Unattractive title and generic trailer have doomed this movie. too bad, cause the movie could be really good.

    • Pedro

      Well, sorry to tell u but this is not gonna bomb, doesn’t matter how much u wish for it. Every since bit of the film that already came out makes it look pretty damn good. Sorry, bud.

  • Jayzee

    Oh, PLEASE ! How can ANYONE take this movie seriously? Hysterically ridiculous !

  • Bruce

    Can you say: “Bad Editing?”

  • Pedro

    Well, sorry to tell u but this is not gonna bomb, doesn\’t matter how much u wish for it. Every since bit of the film that already came out makes it look pretty damn good. Sorry, bud.
