Jack Reacher is an interesting film. With so many new productions literally slathered in special effects effects and digital work, Jack Reacher, with Tom Cruise in the lead, stands out.
It seems like a nice, old-fashioned film.
And that's a good thing.
Shot on film (Panavision), and taken through the DI process at 2k, it looks terrific. As it's derived from a DI, it will look as it should on Blu-ray.
As to the film itself, Jack Reacher is a great ride - wonderful entertainment. One of the treats is an appearance by filmmaker Werner Herzog as leader bad guy, The Zec.
I did find one thing a bit odd, and possibly it may just have been the camera angle. I've enjoyed Rosamund Pike's work, and while I'm certain that she has lovely breasts, I couldn't figure out why in one scene, they seemed to take center stage, for no apparent reason. It almost looked as though her costume had been made far too small to contain them.
Not that I mind, but just odd.
Jack Reacher is a highly entertaining, terrific piece of entertainment, presented by Paramount in top Blu-ray form.
