Film Review: Jack Reacher

I recently saw Rosamund Pike's latest film, Jack Reacher and I posted my full Film Review: Jack Reacher in my other blog, In The Mood For Movies, where I post my general movie reviews (of the movies I've seen in theaters).

Here's part of my review where I mentioned Rosamund Pike as a defense lawyer Helen Rodin, who teamed up with Tom Cruise's title character Jack Reacher...

Synopsis
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.
Just saw Jack Reacher on its opening weekend (Saturday) and I thought it was a great crime-thriller film! I loved and enjoyed watching it.

Tom Cruise as the title character, not only looks handsome (and young looking) in a short hair, he was brilliant and amazing in this film.  He was funny too especially with his one-liners and his fight scenes were just amazing and realistic to watch. I love the balance between the action and the humorous dialogue presented here. You won't even noticed the time. The pacing was great in this film. He did a fantastic job in this film.

Rosamund Pike
as defense attorney Helen Rodin was great here too. Loved that she had more screen time and is the only lead female co-star in this film. She held her own opposite Tom Cruise. They were a great team together and loved their banter (with a lil' flirting and sexual tension going on between them, even though there was no romance between them, unfortunately...) too. Loved the scenes where he was in jail and she was there to see him and he could already guess she was there and mentioned her name and her reply was, "was I wearing too much perfume?" LOL! Also, another scene in Reacher's hotel where he and Helen were discussing her client and she noticed him shirtless and she told him to "can you please put your shirt on?" (or something close to it, lol)...And when she thought he was gonna kiss her, but he didn't and told her to go home, and she was like confused or something when she was escorted to the door to exit his vicinity, hahaha! Rosamund was pretty good here and added a female lead character and humor to this film. I loved and enjoyed watching her more in this film than in Wrath of the Titans or The Big Year (even though she was good in those films, but she was underused in both)...
