For a character who I considered a big guy in the books, if I remember he was suppose to be 6″5, this was certainly a little guy on the screen! At one point in the movie he walked into a bar where everyone was smaller than Tom Cruise! I found long parts of the film a bore, there was a lot of talking and when the action came I wasn’t that impressed. You could see Cruise was actually doing his own stunts, driving the cars and the speed racing ect. But the whole experience felt off, parts didn’t seem to fit, and the strongest character was played by Robert Duvall.
Things felt very predictable and what I thought might be in the film didn’t seem to be there, sometimes trailers sell you one thing and you see something else. Reading a book is one thing seeing on the screen is something else and I am not really sure if I needed to see it on screen after that!
