At the tender age of 21, the British actress was cast as the sultry Miranda Frost, a sword-wielding vixen in the James Bond film “Die Another Day,” her first studio feature.She powdered on enough makeup to look a decade older, donned a black sports bra, and met an untimely demise with a knife to her heart. Offscreen, she suffered a far worse blow to her budding career. “It cemented a sort of patrician, frigid, English, standoffish cold image,” says Pike, over breakfast in September at the Toronto Film Festival. I never had a chance to do those young roles.” After her high-profile gig in the 2002 Bond picture, the actress persevered for years in supporting parts, in films such as “Pride & Prejudice,” “An Education” and “Barney’s Version.” But all that changed in July 2013 when she landed her first lead in a movie — as Amy Dunne in David Fincher’s thriller “Gone Girl” — the most coveted role of the year.It’s weightless but entertaining, the very definition of a guilty pleasure.But the deep, dark secret of Jack Reacher is that it doesn’t care. Director: Christopher Mc Quarrie Writers: Christopher Mc Quarrie (screenplay); Lee Child (novel) Starring: Tom Cruise, Rosamund Pike, Richard Jenkins, David Oyelowo, Werner Herzog, Robert Duvall Release Date: Dec.These days, the lamentations of the devoted are as expected as they are usually unfounded, but in this case they have a point.While Cruise smolders for justice and dispatches bad guys with equal amounts of conviction, there are approximately zero lines of a hard life etched on his face; there is no hint of the horrors of the war in Iraq in his eyes.Certified Fresh Movies and TV shows are Certified Fresh with a steady Tomatometer of 75% or higher after a set amount of reviews (80 for wide-release movies, 40 for limited-release movies, 20 for TV shows), including 5 reviews from Top Critics. Reacher knows that no two opponents are created equal. He knows this shooter-a trained military sniper who never should have missed a shot.

Of course, this is not news to fans of the popular book series by Lee Child, who have been grumbling since Cruise first signed on.The hot female superstars of the ’90s (Julia Roberts, Meg Ryan and Demi Moore) no longer headline blockbusters, and their replacements (Jennifer Lawrence and Shailene Woodley) are much younger.Other than Angelina Jolie, who is 39, there aren’t many actresses in their 30s who can carry a movie.It’s bolstered by some effectively brutal fight choreography, a chilling performance by documentarian Werner Herzog as a James Bond-type villain, and a third-act appearance from the great Robert Duvall.Writer/director Christopher Mc Quarrie, who penned the crime classic The Usual Suspects, knows how to create tension, and makes occasionally interesting use of the camera (though he uses the slow, revealing pan shot one time too many).
