  1. Alan Ritchson is a good choice for the Jack Reacher role, I kind of agree with mitrebin about Tom, but his mega-star rating makes him six feet tall in most of his films.
    Amazon Prime do need to release some more attractive content, it’s still surprising that this SVOD service has not developed some product consistency, Amazon offers some really poor movies and shows to fill genre lists with just a few of their better original offerings in between.

    1. I’m still laughing at Family Guy the other night with Tom Cruise the same height as Stewie 😆 but yes Tom reached so many heights in his career just not the one Jack Reacher is meant to be.
