Tom Cruise packs a punch in this Jack Reacher clip

I'm about 100 pages shy of finishing Lee Child's Jack Reacher novel One Shot, and can safely say it's one of the best thrillers I've read. And it makes perfect sense to me that producers would pick it up for a feature film.

Surprise! They did. And that movie, Jack Reacher, hits theatres Dec. 21, just in time for Christmas.

A lot of fuss has been made about Tom Cruise being cast as Reacher, who is much more of a Dolph Lundgren type in the book. But Cruise is mighty convincing in this clip from the film, which also happens to be the first real throwdown in the book.

Shits been changed a bit, but the Reacher vibe is here. This is one of the few holiday movies I'm going to put an effort into catching in a theatre. Not The Hobbit, Jack Reacher. I have faith in writer/director Christopher (The Usual Suspects, Valkyrie) McQuarrie. And who doesn't want to see legendary filmmaker Werner Herzog play a bad guy named The Zec? I know I do.

But I digress. Go watch some ass kicking. Thanks to The Sun for this clip.
