Tom Cruise brings his signature grin and action-star style to Jack Reacher, the big-screen adaptation of the popular Lee Child series. Cruise plays a former military officer called out of retirement when an accused sniper asks for him by name. The opening shooting scene is immensely disturbing, but the film works as a mystery, and Cruise fans will be especially pleased to see the actor turn in another action-packed performance.
Safe Haven is the latest adaptation from renowned romance novelist Nicholas Sparks. Abuse victim Katie (Julianne Hough) is looking for a clean start. She finds herself in a small seaside town being courted by a charming single dad (Josh Duhamel), but she's plagued by an ex who is intent on tracking her down. Unrealistic and filled with cheesy clichés, the film itself is a lot less tempting than Duhamel. The DVD comes loaded with extended scenes and a (much-needed) alternate ending.
