    I read that Tyler Perry was re-cast as Alex Cross. No way...that part belongs to the original actor (if I could just think of his name now!) Even when I read the Cross books, I envision the actor playing the part!!

    I agree I do not picture TC as Jack. But I am still going to the movie.

    My sentiments exactly.

    I think it's wonderful when I read a book by an author that's new to me and want to read the rest of the series. I went to the library and got them all, I'm looking forward to more by Lee Child. As for the movie, I'll probably see it when it comes to Netflix, I wouldn't pay to go to a theater to see it. I'll just pretend it has nothing to do with the books, I have my own image of Jack Reacher in my mind and I'm keeping him, LOL.

    I'm with everyone else on this. I don't go to the movies, but will check out DVDs from the library if they have a good one. I can't imagine TC as Jack Reacher. I had a similar experience with watching Sahara, based on a Clive Cussler novel. The actor did not in any way resemble the Dirk Pitt I carry around in my mind.

    We saw the movies last week and enjoyed it very much. I am not a Tom Cruise fan and I haven't read the books so we watched and enjoyed it very much. And Pittsburgh looked so much better on film than in real life. We spend as little time as possible in the 'burgh' as it's just to hard to get around with all the streets and roads under construction. It's been going on for +30 years!

    Saw the movie on Christmas day in the evening with hubby. We really enjoyed the movie but didn't realize there was a book. I don't read those kind of books. And they were only charging $5 for tickets. I guess because it was Christmas day.
    Blessed are the quilters, for they are the piecemakers.

    I too agree, but maybe the original actor has decided retire?????? I also liked the female co-lead, ....Judd.........but maybe they have gone on to other things or the $$$ was not enough...who knows...I am now curious about this Reacher character.....have not read any of the books but will have to look into it....as far as the movie..I don't go to movies that often anyway, but did go to see Lincoln and thought it was good

    Will not go see the movie. Tom is not anywhere near the Reacher image.

    I am not a Tom Cruise fan- so I won't be watching that one at all.

    Its sad when movieland takes a novel and distorts it instead of trying to keep the character as it is in the book. So many movies have been made from a book and turns out they are not even close to the book.
