"Mr. Burton’s attention to detail and to the ebb and flow of tone (scary, funny, eerie), as well as his sensitive, gentle work particularly with the child actors, make each new turn another occasion for unfettered imagination.

indelible vision. ."

"The character is an ideal vessel for Cruise's gifts as a movie star. Even if he doesn't quite fit the physical description Child imagined in writing, Cruise takes Reacher and shapes him into one of his iconic characters."
