I guess you could say him playing the role is a bit of a "Reach"
In all seriousness, I wasn't wowed by the trailers when they first came out, nor did I think it looked terrible- just kinda indifferent and probably just another so so action flick. I was rather surprised by how many people that I would be around when there was a promo for the movie that totally trashed it and thought the movie looked absolutely terrible?
Kinda made me question what I was missing that seemed to turn so many off.
Needless to say, I caught a chance to see it and thought it was done rather well, and think the novel fans that got up in arms by Cruise were rather silly because it wouldn't have been made without box office draw. As much as I love Dwayne Johnson, he's not at the point where he's a real solo box office draw to drive ticket sales typically alone at this point in his career.
