Should Jack Reacher deserve a sequel ?

The Tom Cruise starrer action-thriller 'Jack Reacher' came out in the month of December , somewhere around this time only. I am writing this today remember this great film which was under rated of its total value .
Personally I loved this movie . The portrayal of Reacher by Cruise was fantastic although Reacher is a person with a large body structure that can be intimidating to any man. The movie was based upon the novel series of Jack Reacher installment called "One Shot" where a homicide takes place in a small town .
I believe that the movie deserves a sequel because -
- when I watched the film,it actually made me feel to relive the experience of the book
- stunning action sequences

- sense of humour even though this should have been a serious movie

- gripping plot

The fault people found were mainly two Reacher's portrayal by Cruise ( size problems ) and a blast scene that was shown in the trailer but excluded in the movie . I believe tom's portrayal of Jack is justified as the way he portrayed Reacher was completely believable . It was as if he completely knew whom and what he was portraying and quite it did made me feel that Reacher could have reacted to the situations like that only . He coincided with my mental image of Reacher . It was totally symmetrical for me except the physique . But author Lee Child justified that Reacher's size in the book is metaphor for an unstoppable force which Cruise displays in his own way .
The other problem people have was the blast scene about which I was surprised too.. I wanted to see the scene the scene too. A man from had sued Paramount for this and they had to pay him back.
But the film was terrific and had its fair share of humour too with little bit of every about the lonely drifter Jack Reacher .

I give the movie a rating of : 4 stars
