Tom Cruise Kicks Sufficient Ass in First Clip from JACK REACHER

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.
