Reacher (2022) Amazon Series Review | Prime Video

jet creature has returned but wait a,second that is not tom cruise today,were going to talk about the brand new,amazon prime series what is up flick,fans welcome back to my channel,admittedly i saw the trailer and i was,excited but in a hesitant kind of way so,today were going to talk about it,spoiler free of course and i need your,comments down below what is your,favorite version of jack reacher thus,far and are you familiar with the source,material when retired military police,officer jack reacher is arrested for a,murder he did not commit he finds,himself in the middle of a deadly,conspiracy full of dirty cops shady,businessmen and scheming politicians,with nothing but his wits he must figure,out what is happening in margrave,georgia by the way i am getting over the,flu feeling a little better so thank you,guys for the kind words but alan richard,plays our title character this dude is,built he is the physical specimen that,fits quite perfectly for you picture as,a jack reacher and a lot of people have,read the source material i am not one of,those but just knowing what i know about,the character i see alan rich and im,like yeah thats it okay i i am,automatically fearful when that guy,walks into a room and you can understand,and believe via what this show is,telling us that he has in the words of,liam neeson a very particular set of,skills and he showcases that very much,so in the first episode it is your,classic introduction a guy comes in i,wont use the word framed but he gets in,trouble for something that he didnt,necessarily do makes his way into,detainment beats a couple of guys up,comes out and helps the very people that,got him in that situation the first,place and some likable and unlikable,qualities for those that are assisting,him i guess he is technically assisting,them with this murder mystery,investigation but,at the end of the day theyre really,assisting him because he is the guy that,knows lets just say a lot more than,these side characters believe because he,has been there and done that he was a,military officer but it goes beyond that,everything that,they read off in one of the episodes,saying oh well hes done this hes,killed this many people he is trained,and has mastered this set of 17 skills,and youre just like yeah i believe it i,believe it not only because of his,physicality in the role but uh hes also,very intimidating when he walks into a,room there is this confidence that,occasionally comes across as arrogance,but its almost like he has a right to,be arrogant but at the end of the day,when you learn his personality in the,show you understand that it is solely,and purely confidence because he is so,good at what he does i think thats one,problem some may have with his character,just the fact that he is so good that,occasionally it comes across as,cockiness but i found there eventually,to be a nice balance with the way he was,portraying the character now i think tom,cruise just being the actor that he is,brought a lot to the role and i enjoyed,the first jack creature movie uh wasnt,blown away or anything the second one it,wasnt good at all this show while i,believe the writing could have maybe,taken a step up at points the mystery,itself isnt as compelling as the,character but if you approach this as,more of a character-centric show,focusing on the relationships and uh,really jack reacher at the center,building him through a series of,flashbacks a relationship with his,brother when he was younger that just,allowed him to grow into the man that he,is we get all of these things as the,show progresses if thats how you,approach this and just enjoying a lot of,these,incredibly choreographed action scenes,that were occasionally overshadowed by,filmmaking that wasnt perfect but it,got better as it went on then i think,youre going to have a lot of fun with,this and again i cant speak to the,source material all i can really do is,compare it to what ive seen on the big,screen and im gonna say this doesnt,only hold a candle to that this in my,opinion is the definitive version that,weve seen thus far because he fits the,role on a level that i just really,responded to and this is my kind of show,a guy who just comes in makes his,presence known is so good at what he,does but not to the point to where it,takes away from any stakes because there,are absolutely,stakes one thing in particular that we,realize in the first few episodes that,hes having to go through that makes him,more of a relatable character not only,that but we have the characters of,finley and roscoe finley does not like,jack reacher at first and vice versa,they do not get along at all,but inevitably they have to find a way,to work together to solve this mystery,and figure out why this small town is at,the center of all of this madness then,you have roscoe who at first i was,hesitant and maybe it was just the fact,that i didnt know enough about her,character but as that relationship forms,and they have this bond quite a,beautiful bond especially at the,beginning of the season i really love,their dynamic there are twists and turns,along the way again im not going to use,the word predictable im just going to,say the mystery itself isnt near as,interesting as what i was enjoying about,the show so if thats kind of your focal,point i dont know if youre going to,love this and it does tend to get a bit,melodramatic not on the level that ive,seen in other projects this year but,its definitely there within the,dialogue so thats also something i hope,they work on for future seasons the,mystery itself will occasionally bring,about an emotional moment between two,characters or just a character,displaying emotion really well and for,the most part i thought the performances,were solid it did take me,just a few minutes to warm up to jack,reacher himself but once i did,personally i thought he did a great job,as the character so before i give you,guys my score hey if youre here you,want to support this video i appreciate,it more than anything be sure to drop,your thumbs up down below and leave a,comment how did you feel about this show,reacher has everything you want when it,comes to showcasing a badass action hero,and while occasionally cheesy the end,result is a fun season of television i,cant stress that enough i know im,higher on this than some i dont care i,really enjoyed it 8 out of 10 for me and,80 percent uh these episodes flew by and,i was invested really from episode one,uh more so into the characters but i,need your thoughts down below hey guys i,appreciate it i still have to review,jackass i promise its coming appreciate,you guys for your patience and i will be,seeing you,very soon

Reacher (2022) Amazon Prime Series Review | Season 1

so i wasnt the biggest fan of the jack,reacher movies with tom cruise but was,hopeful when the new reacher series was,announced for amazon prime the actor,that theyve chosen is huge and menacing,and is able to bring the beat down but,does the story also get a beat down in,this show,[Applause],when retired military police officer,jack reacher is arrested for a murder he,did not commit he finds himself in the,middle of a deadly conspiracy full of,dirty cops shady businessmen and,scheming politicians with nothing but,his wits he must figure out what is,happening in margrave georgia alright so,this is one of those bad cop shows that,you know is bad but i still somehow got,sucked into the melodrama the first,episode really took a lot of patience to,get into alan richton who plays reacher,was overly stoic but also awkward in his,acting but about 40 minutes in i began,to warm up to him now im not sure if,the character just began to click with,me or if i had just gotten used to his,weirdness one thing that i really like,is how blunt and no-nonsense reacher is,hes basically turned off his filter and,he just doesnt tolerate any bs hes,also not one for small talk so he just,says exactly what hes thinking now i,like what that does for the dialogue in,the show i mean its blunt but its,oddly humorous in one scene hes having,a conversation with the dude who says,ill ruin your life with one phone call,and reacher responds with ill end your,life with one phone i mean sure its,cheesy but it fit perfectly it was,exactly the response i had now come to,expect from him now there are a fair,amount of plot conveniences built into,this show after getting wrongfully,arrested for murder in the small georgia,town reacher works his way into helping,in the murder investigation i mean the,way that he does this closely mirrors,the way alyssa milano did it in that,awesomely amazing netflix movie brazen,the obviousness of this whole show is,really bothersome i mean especially,because its eight episodes that are,each around 50 minutes long so its a,lot to endure is the case slowly reveals,itself but these arent really reveals,because the mystery isnt obscured very,well at all some of the characters are,ridiculous archetypes like the mayor of,the georgia town who walks around with,this golden cane topped with a diamond,looking crystal that hell occasionally,breathe onto polish and then to amp it,up even more he brings on that deep,southern drawl its just like molasses,just sort of spilling out of your mouth,the action in the show can be fun and,sometimes the scenes stay on the frame,long enough to actually get a good look,at whats going on there are other times,though when the cuts are quick and,numerous which then makes the fights,less immersive but the overall violence,is really what this show has going for,it i mean while its not an action,series when the show wants to employ,violence its not afraid to show some,brutality i mean some of the scenes were,actually pretty impressive with how they,show bones breaking and people being,finished off the dialogue in this is a,whole mixed bag of cheese and drama i,mean sometimes i was going along with,what the characters are saying and i was,engaged,and then they just dropped some,massively awkward lines where i didnt,know whether to laugh or just pick my,jaw up off the floor in disbelief that,such ridiculous words were written for,the characters and there are also some,lines that just work to insult the,audiences intelligence i mean its like,captain obvious was there in the,writers room and told them to insert,lines here and there a couple of times,reacher and his de facto cop partners,unveil facts and decode their meanings,but the way in which those explanations,come would have been delivered more,effectively and convincingly by shaggy,and scooby,now the cast works well for what theyre,given i mean theyre more dramatic than,i think they need to be but when you,listen to the dialogue it all fits,together malcolm goodwin and willow,fitzgerald make good partners with rich,since creature their dynamic grew on me,and i was sucked into them just like i,was with the bad melodrama i mean it,also helps that i really liked goodwin,when he was in izombie so to see him,here was a nice surprise but the one,casting choice i absolutely loved was,harvey guillen if his real name doesnt,ring a bell maybe hell recognize him as,guillermo nandor is familiar in what we,do in the shadows now i liked his,portrayal of a small town medical,examiner who was wildly uncomfortable,with the large amount of murders that,are now befalling his town the,obviousness of all of this show is,pretty aggravating and there is such a,high level of predictability to the,story and that isnt something that,always bothers me but i invested nearly,eight hours into the supposed mystery,and they cant even bother to give me,satisfying twists and turns no and then,when the reveal comes the writing,insults us even more by the villain,monologue who painstakingly details,everything that we already know all that,was missing was the don,of music right before theyre done,explaining so overall reacher is a by,the numbers over obvious murder mystery,that relies on having some brutal,violence to add excitement most of the,acting is stiff but it did grow on me,and ive got to hand it to the actors,for delivering the cheesy and ridiculous,lines with straight faces while im all,for a melodramatic mystery there has to,be mystery with that melodrama the show,takes way too long to uncover what we,can already guess from the very,beginning and even though the motive is,the biggest question in this its not so,exciting or engaging to keep you on the,edge of your seat the character of,reacher is intriguing and i like how,menacing this current iteration can be,but i think if this series is to,continue the story needs to be a tighter,and better hidden mystery theres sex,nudity a lot of profanity and a ton of,violence the more i think about this the,more i just get disappointed with the,show i give season one of reacher one,and a half out of five couches i mean my,score didnt start out that low but,thats just what it is now so are you a,fan of the book series that this is,based on have you been excited for this,show to come out let me know in the,comments below if you enjoyed this,review please give it a like also dont,forget to share and subscribe im chris,this is movies and munchies thanks for,couching with me

Reacher – Its Really Good

holy [ __ ] if I told you that a TV show,but a huge muscle-bound emotionally,guarded and absolutely badass male,protagonist who wanders into a small,town and kicks the [ __ ] out of anyone,who crosses them would somehow be,produced by Amazon Video in 2022 youd,probably see Drinker you handsome,Paragon of manly virtue how could such a,thing be allowed to exist without the,message well I dont pretend to know how,this one slipped through the cracks,without getting pumped full of all the,usual garbage that drags down most,Entertainment Properties these days but,however the [ __ ] it happened Im glad it,did because Reacher is a good [ __ ],show thats mostly faithful to the,source material unlike the Tom Cruise,movies provides a solid mystery for the,audience to piece together and plenty of,hard-hitting action and snappy dialogue,to cap the whole thing off the show,begins when former military cop Jack,Reacher arrives in the small Georgian,town of margrave for no other reason,than because one of his favorite jazz,musicians grew up there and he wants to,go and see the place thats pretty much,show this guy rules he just freewheels,across America going wherever the notion,takes him sounds like a pretty good,[ __ ] life now that I think about it,anyway hes just settling down to lunch,when he gets arrested for murder and,thrown in jail where his fellow,prisoners inexplicably try to take him,out clearly someone doesnt want him,asking too many questions needless to,say he quickly shows them the error of,their ways and manages to clear his name,but not before discovering that one of,the murderer victims was his own brother,Joe and well Reachers solution is,simple Ill kill every last one of them,from then on his mission is to discover,what his brother was doing in margrave,why he was murdered and why the local,police and politicians are trying to,cover the whole thing up along the way,he teams up with a jaded Boston,detective and a local PD officer who,also happens to be hot as [ __ ] damn she,can arrest me any day anyway his,investigations eventually uncover a web,of conspiracies and Corruption,stretching from local business tycoons,to the police force and government the,deeper he digs the further The Rock,extends but how far does it go oh and,who can he really trust much like his,main character Richard is the kind of,show that unfolds very much at its own,pace its a slow burning mystery that,reveals things when its goddamn good,and ready rather than a fast-paced,action thriller thats desperate to,impress I mean dont get me wrong its,all punctuated by moments of explosive,violence that are solidly directed and,actually feel like they have a bit of,weight behind them when a guy the size a,Reacher hits you you [ __ ] know about,it and the show doesnt try to hide that,fact but the interesting thing is we,actually get to see Reacher using his,brains instead of his fists most of the,time putting together Clues questioning,Witnesses following leads and testing,out theories its a detective story,basically except this detective looks,like he could take on Dwayne Johnson and,[ __ ] win Reachers got a deep,understanding of human behavior and how,the world around him functions and he,uses that to predict everything from,time scales to movement patterns,decision making and likely next moves,one of his biggest strengths is his,almost autistic ability to notice,details that other people Miss details,that often make the difference between,uncovering a promising lead and running,into a brick [ __ ] wall,three men dropped this body,enlighten me shoot her with someone who,knows Firearms well bullets were small,caliber nine millimeter 95 grain thats,subsonic a silencer was used he also,knew enough to pick up his brass this,wasnt a first timer this was someone,who knew how to conduct a quiet,effective kill hes certainly not,infallible and theres times when he,fails to put things together quickly,enough but hes smart motivated brutal,and absolutely Relentless also I love,when he just [ __ ] ignores people that,he decides arent worthy of his time,like this guys not even gonna waste his,breath on you unless you can help him,and hats off to the producers for their,casting choices here unlike the movies,that tried to shoehorn an aging big name,actor into a role he was completely,unsuited to the showrunners here were,smart enough to go with the guy that,actually looks and acts the part I mean,I respect some Crews as an actor and you,cant fault his work ethic but no amount,of hard work is gonna make him a foot,taller in 15 years younger Alan,Richardson on the other hand is Pitch,Perfect as richer hes called,calculating and methodical when he wants,to be but hes also brutal violent and,ruthless when he needs to be its not,often he lets his guard down around,other people but theres moments when he,allows a little bit of charm and,personality to shine through and yeah it,doesnt hurt that the dudes built like,a brick [ __ ] house whats weird is that,I actually find myself liking this,version of Reacher way more than the,book version who are always found to be,a total personality vacuum a bit of a,self-insert wankfest for the author and,so [ __ ] distant that I never had the,slightest clue who he was yeah this,version is definitely more chatty than,his book counterpart which I guess is,the trade-off you have to make when you,catch your characters in her monologue,but generally he comes across more like,an actual real human being instead of a,[ __ ] Terminator killing time between,missions The Supporting Cast round,things out pretty well Malcolm Goodwin,and Willa Fitzgerald both do a good job,investing their characters with a bit of,depth and humor to balance out the,mostly serious and restrained Reacher I,mean they do seem weirdly okay with the,total Outsider inserting himself into an,official police investigation and it,really strains my suspension of,disbelief when he straight up admits to,killing people but whatever they both,get moments to shine and the more you,learn about them the more interesting,and fleshed out they become but whats,really important is that theyre never,allowed to outshine the protagonist the,shows called breacher from a reason and,it never forgets that Jesus I can only,imagine what kind of disaster this show,would have been if it had come out on,Netflix Finley and Roscoe would have,probably spent the whole season leading,Reacher from place to place saving his,ass solving all the clues for him and,rolling their eyes at his constant,displays of toxic masculinity God I hate,modern writing honestly this show feels,like forbidden fruit somehow today I,dont know man maybe the author Had,Creative control locked into his,contract this time around so they,couldnt [ __ ] with his creation,sorry adapt it from Modern audiences,either way despite the modern setting it,really feels like a story that came out,of the late 90s era of Thriller writes,in which ironically enough is exactly,what it is The Killing Floor that its,based on was written in 1997 a violent,gritty hard-hitting story with a smart,Kick-Ass nail protagonist who isnt,intimidated by other people who keeps,his feelings to himself and doesnt let,people close to him Punchy insightful,dialogue that gets to the [ __ ] point,and doesnt try to inject goofy humor at,every turn an actual mystery that,requires a logical methodical approach,to solve instead of following an obvious,trail of Clues from one generic set,piece to the other if richer represents,some kind of quaint throwback to a,different era of Storytelling then,[ __ ] sign me up Im up for it thats,for damn sure,anyway thats all Ive got for today,go away now

Reacher Season 1 Review

it took me about a week but i finally,got reacher season 1 watched so lets,talk about it,[Music],hi my name is sean and i love to talk,about movies and tv way too much with,that in mind go ahead and join me down,below in the comments section let me,know what did you think about season one,of reacher this is a spoiler-free review,therefore if you want to talk spoilers,in the comment section just put up a,spoiler warning first now season one of,the show is based off the first jack,reacher novel killing floor i have,listened to one of the jack reacher,novels on audible and it was in fact,killing floor and so this is a case of,one of the few instances where i have in,fact read the book before i watched the,movie or the tv show you can actually,listen to the book for free if you sign,up for a free trial of audible,audibletrial.com,seanchandler or use the link down below,in the description i have listened to,the audible version of killing floor and,uh if you want to kind of compare the,show to the book,check it out down there it is an,affiliate link it does help me out so,its just also another way to support,the channel so what did i think about,season one of reacher,i thoroughly,enjoyed it now i tend to like these,types of shows i tend to be a fan of,action thriller tv shows and even the,bad ones even kind of the trashy ones,theyre just easy for me to watch,because i like this sort of thing and so,when i heard they were doing this show i,was interested i was going to check it,out but i didnt have particularly high,expectations for it i wasnt thinking,this was going to be this amazing show,or anything like that its just like,yeah thats my kind of thing i think,ill check that one out and then they,cast alan richson in the lead role as,reacher,and this is an actor that hes been,around for a long time i mean he was in,smallville as aquaman he was in hunger,games he was one of the ninja turtles,hes put down a bunch of stuff hes,actually even on american idol at one,point in time but he hasnt like found,that definitive role thats going to put,him in the spotlight,and then i watched that first trailer,for reacher,and immediately i was like man this,could be his thing right here this could,be it like he,looks and feels the part but will the,show be any good,and then i watched it and from the first,episode,i actually liked the show more than the,book normally,people well the book is better i think,just the inherent visceral nature of the,jack reacher character and that its,action based and so much about his,rapport with the people around him,i liked the show more than the book,and thats a good sign and they just,found a way to kind of give you this,trio of lead characters that balanced,each other out really nicely that didnt,seem to like each other but seem to also,kind of respect each other just enough,that they formed this bond and,relationship and had a growing rel,friendship that kind of came out of it,and then they were they were worked,together and then they became friends by,the end of it,i just thought it really,worked and likewise with the nature of a,tv show,they kind of expanded on the the book a,little bit,and you really fleshed out this,mythology of what was kind of going on,in this city and taking place and the,conspiracies the action the betrayals,all of it just kind of felt fleshed out,a little bit more now at its core what,makes jack reacher fascinating is the,jack reacher character who is just meant,to be,just this blunt force,weapon of sorts of this guy thats,really smart has great analytical and,deductive skills,but hes just an absolute tank and,they did a pair of jack creature films,starting 10 years ago and the first one,was was done by crystal christopher,mccrory the guy that went on to to do,the mission impossible films and it,starred tom cruise obviously they got,along and thats why tom cruise is like,hey mr macquarie would you like to start,directing my mission impossible films,but the problem with the films is that,tom cruise was horribly miscast,love tom cruise one of my favorite,actors he is a great actor,but hes also a great entertainer and he,knows how to please his fans and of,course hes a madman willing to go all,in to entertain people and put his life,on the line to do it or to fund a cruise,ship so that they can film the new,mission impossible movie during covid,but,hes also,infamous for being like the smallest,leading man in hollywood,he is a little little guy hes in great,shape especially for his age hes in,better shape the older he gets,but hes a little guy,and,fundamental to jack reacher is that hes,supposed to be,this guy that walks into a room,and immediately,feels physically imposing hes in the,book written to be six foot five 250,pounds jacked,like thats the end thats the energy,that he brings into the room this isnt,a matter of like people complaining that,daniel craig had the wrong color eyes,and hair or something like that,um you know i can understand why purists,would be upset about that,but its not quite the same thing as,jack reacher is supposed to be the,biggest guy in almost every room that he,walks,into and thats the thing that this show,immediately,captures,that,the lead guy,allen has always been a fit,i dont know what he did to train for,this role but he,immediately,is able to pull off being just this,absolute beast of a man as like the show,starts were in scene number one and my,wife immediately goes that guy is,massive and hes just sitting in a in a,diner trying to get pie,like he just looks,huge,and i did even some research into him,the guy is only like an inch taller than,me and so hes tall but hes not six,foot five and through the use of angles,casting people that i guess are shorter,than him probably putting them in boots,and lifts,the guy it just fills up every frame,that hes in,and you feel that and then they write,him so well so hes this guy that just,keeps getting in situations where he,just pummels dudes,and the the way the action is done you,they make him this guy,that,absolutely,is confident,in his violence,he knows thats a bad dude thats in the,way of justice and so he is perfectly,willing to use that physicality his,strength and his training to harm bad,guys,and thats what the show gets so right,the jack reacher character through the,casting and as i said before alans one,of these guys hes been around for a,long time hes been in high profile,things hes even played,these well-known characters aquaman and,things like that,ninja turtle i dont remember which,ninja truly played a ninja turtle,obviously there was a little bit of cgi,replacing him or all of him but he was a,ninja turtle,but this is where like he really is,getting front and center with a,character that is well known,um and the character luckily not that,hes like this a-list actor like or just,like this total prestige actor,but for what,jack reacher requires being able to,deliver these sarcastic lines being able,to,use his eyes to like see like analyzing,he can tell that hes thinking,being able to pull off the pure,physicality uh being able to be this guy,that clearly is hurting,but hes not letting you in at all,and the fact that maybe hes not like,the most totally versatile actor out,there,fits,this character,and thats the thing about casting that,its not always about did you get the,biggest biggest and best actor tom,cruise,is more charismatic hes a better actor,hes of course a bigger name hes of,course one of the biggest movie stars of,all time,but,alan is much better casting for this,role,no matter how good tom cruise is in,general,hes not jack reacher because,hes almost literally a foot too short,literally hes almost too short it might,actually be a foot too short to be,jack reacher and so from there it just,it it told a compelling,crime thriller set in this town,where somethings going down,and youre slowly unraveling this,mystery,and at first i was digging it just for,the vibe the aesthetic of this i liked,stories about tough guys

Amazon’s Reacher Renewed For Season 2

chris what is our second main topic,topic two is from the antagonistic,anonymous,hey john just like you i had little to,no interest in watching amazons jack,reacher however after hearing some of,your shows viewers i checked it out and,i have to say i thoroughly enjoyed the,series overall and it looks viewers,around the looks viewers around the,globe or fond of it as deadline reports,that the show was renewed for a season,two and amazon stated that the show,ranked in its top five most watched,series ever in the us and globally over,a 24-hour period whats your view of,season one and are you looking forward,to next season thanks and having amazing,today yeah listen i will tell you what,youre not wrong i,when i saw the other camera creature,first of all you gotta understand the,first tom cruise jack reacher movie i,really like yep,i dont care what anybody else says like,hes not as totally supposed to be in,but i dont give i dont watch a,movie to see how close it sticks to the,book i watch the movie to see if its a,good movie and i thought that first jack,reacher movie was really entertaining,the mystery was good the way they,unfolded it all and i and i tom cruise i,bought as a badass in the movie i,thought they did a very very good job on,it,jack reacher 2 never stopped never,stopping was not,nearly as good to me i wasnt,so terribly big on the sequel i admit,but still when i saw that they were,doing a television series for reacher,with aquaman from smallville,i honestly,no interest,and then much like harley quinn we,started hearing from people saying,johnny i really think you should check,out jack reacher i really think you,should check out jack reacher and then,robert meyer burnett said i watch the,series i really think you should watch,it so im like all right,sat down,popped in an episode of jack reacher im,like,you know what thats pretty good i,watched the second episode and after the,second episode i was hooked,now im not going to sit here and,pretend that i think alan richen,richson,is the worlds greatest actor i mean he,played it pretty,monotone which is the way the character,should be played,but he brought a physical presence to,the role that added a lot the same kind,of in the way that a dwayne the rock,johnson would like i just bought into it,i believed it i thought the mystery is,pretty good although it started to get a,little bit convoluted in the last couple,of episodes,still,i thought it was broad enough of a,conspiracy i like the way they got there,my one kind of nitpick with it and i,wont say who specifically but everybody,in the series that you thought was a bad,guy was absolutely a bad guy there was,no subtle mr x going at all it was,pretty straightforward,so it was fun if the action was violent,and exciting i believed it it had to,bear similitude to it and when the,series ended i was like,that was pretty darn good television and,they have announced that theyre coming,back to it this comes from the folks,over a deadline who write the following,jack reacher is returning amazon is,renewed ellen a rich and fronted action,drama series reacher for a second season,the fast turnaround renewal comes three,days after the streamer launched the lee,child adaptation amazon said that,reacher ranked in its top five most,watched series ever in the u.s and,globally over a 24-hour period though,its worth noting that all eight,episodes of the series launched at once,not something that amazon generally does,uh the company added that its it also,was among its highest rated original,series with subscribers giving it an,average rating of 4.7 out of five now of,course,the drawback,from them dropping it all,the advantage of dropping it all once is,people can binge and build up those view,hours,the drawback as we found out in the that,variety study is that in two and a half,weeks no ones gonna be talking about,reacher anymore so its gonna disappear,but still,im very happy to see you got renewed,because this is a series that very,easily could have come and gone very,fast nobody could have paid attention to,it i wasnt going to be paying attention,to it and im glad i did so im really,grateful to our viewers who turned me on,to it so there we go rob youre one of,the guys who got me really turned on to,this show,uh what did you think about the series,overall and how do you feel about it,getting renewed for season two well you,know im a fan of lee childs reacher,books just like i i love james lee,burkes dave robert show books or or or,andrew foxs burke novels,i like these sort of detective i mean,these are these are,neo westerns,you know guy walks stranger walks into a,small town a corrupt town and and sets,things straight with a great cast of,secondary characters,and this is this was,it was an adaptation of the very first,reacher novel they they brought in,characters,from other,books in the series like his friend,and i i just thought while its not,genius john its not like breaking bad,levels of genius,but its just really really solid,entertainment you know its like its,like the movie silverado silverado is,full of western tropes and its fun its,not unforgiving but its a really solid,fun western with great actors and great,characters and its just fun to watch,and its satisfying you dont watch it,up now right,this was just a a a really entertaining,show a great adaptation of the books i,think with a central character whos you,know,hes not called upon to be doing de niro,levels of acting and i think hes the,perfect character actor or hes a,perfect actor to play that character and,i love the secondary characters the,people that he worked with yes,everything from,the uh the the the main detective dude,the the girl,uh i mean again the villains to me were,as like well thats a villain and thats,a villain and thats a villain,immediately no mystery to it but still,those supporting character like that,trio,really did work for me a lot i love the,the police captain i thought he was,great in this yeah he finally i think,was the character finley and roscoe yeah,and and it was just i mean youre,watching it and it was just satisfying,entertainment you know not every,entertainment has to be the best thing,youve ever seen but this was something,it was really satisfying really,diverting really fulfilling and i felt,like it was a great,meal that might not be you know,as good for me as too much butter on it,but okay,all right we go over chris,you i i cant even remember he even saw,this series or not,but i think thats interesting what,because i wasnt interested either what,is it,how did this show or why did this show,for you who wasnt interested like i,wasnt what was it about this and how it,looked that just didnt click with you,and didnt raise any interest for you to,see it i mean honestly theres just so,many things to watch that i was just,like ah i dont know whos gonna do it,for me aquaman youre fine um but now,that more and more people have talked,about it i am intrigued by it and i do,think im gonna binge it i also im,somebody who watches something and its,usually because of just all the old,youtube videos and stuff i had to make,where its let me figure out all the,plot points right away so the knowing,who a villain is immediately isnt,something that like super intrigues me,that much doesnt make me want to watch,this more but my husband,suspends his disbelief so much that he,can watch moana for the 57th time and be,like i dont know if theyre gonna make,it,[Laughter],so so im really excited to binge watch,this,with him um but yeah its just its just,not my kind of show it looked a little,it looked a little kind of,fluffy a little flash and trash if you,will it does and but it absolutely does,im happy to hear that this has some,real meat to it though and it it is,brutal,and it doesnt really pull its punches,certainly reacher doesnt pull his,punches but the show itself doesnt and,its you know theres a whole theres a,whole,sub-genre of these modern neo-noir,whether you call them western

Reacher – Spoiler free first impressions review of the new Amazon Jack Reacher TV show

hello im ollie this is criminally where,i talk about crime pop horror that kind,of thing today,something a bit different im not even,going to talk about books today im,going to talk about the new jack reacher,tv show,[Music],so ive said on the channel before im a,bit of a fan of the jack reacher books,by lee child um so when i saw that,amazon were putting out a tv show based,on them um i was definitely interested,um so this is kind of a first,impressions video rather than a full,review video,ive watched the first three episodes,now and the good news is i think its,great its a really fun show,it is,very similar to so its based on the,first book the killing floor um and from,what ive ive read about,in terms of publicity for the show um,theyre going to do one book per season,so this first season is eight episodes,um im guessing theyre probably all,gonna be a similar sort of length um so,eight episodes are about 50 minutes each,um and so yeah so im almost halfway and,and so far its a lot of fun um so what,it does well i think is it it captures,very well the tone of the book so if,youve read any of the books um youll,know what theyre liking that they are,not too heavy um very exciting and a,nice mix of kind of detect kind of,detective style stuff and more kind of,thriller reaction type stuff and and,this does a good job of blending those,two things um and you know richard i,think is is a,he doesnt seem exactly the same to me,as he does in the books and ill talk a,bit more about the casting choice a bit,later um but i think they do a good job,of of portraying him in this um so,whats the show like so it is well,actually lets start with what is what,its about so if you dont know the rich,book so jack richard is an ex-military,policeman and kind of you know military,hero who is now traveling around america,um just kind of,bumming around basically um seeing that,you know seeing the country that he has,spent years defending,um and in this in the first book um hes,in georgia,having gone there um after having,received a message from his brother that,reminded him of a blue musician who,died in this particular town so he,visits this town in in georgia,and theres been a um theres been a,murder very recently and the the show,pretty much starts with richard getting,arrested um as a kind of suspicious,character hes turned it you know hes,turned up in town and then theres been,a murder at the same time,and the plot develops from there and i,wont go too much further into it but to,give you kind of the broad strokes,theres a theres a theres a big,powerful company that owns a lot of land,around the town,um there are theres theres a um you,know the kind of sheriffs department,where the chief of detectives um hes a,black guy whos moved from boston i,think it is um,so it doesnt quite fit in with the rest,of you know this southern town um,and you know richard is arrested as i,say and and imprisoned um and and the,plot kind of,develops from there,so in terms of of what its like its a,nice mix of kind of mystery police,procedural type thing and action and,theres a lot of fight scenes and these,are you know like fist fights um but,theyre theyre really well done they,they reminded me a bit of the um the,fight scenes in the matt damon ball,movies um that you know theyre really,physical and they look quite realistic,but theyre also you know quite,cinematic um so yeah the fight scenes,are great um and the mystery is is being,nicely teased out so far so ive read,the book so i know i i know what happens,but theyre doing a good job of teasing,things out and in true,kind of slightly cheesy tv fashion you,know every episode ends with some kind,of a twist um to keep you hooked and and,on that kind of note of cheesy it,definitely feels like quite a formulaic,show so it mixes a lot of different,things and it and it does it very,satisfyingly but it is um its not,devastatingly original should we say so,you know theres as i said theres,action,um theres mystery,theres a bit of romance theres a bit,of tragedy um you know theres,a fair bit of humor um and its all kind,of blended together very skillfully but,it does feel at times a little bit like,its come off a production line um,rather than being a you know a dramatic,and you know dramatically original new,work a lot too,um but yeah its fun its the one word i,would use to describe it is fun um,so in terms of reacher himself so the,guy theyve got playing richer whos,name escapes him now um,hes hes good hes hes not brilliant,but hes good um so obviously when they,made the two rich movies with tom cruise,a lot was made of the fact that tom,cruise is under held out all but a lot,shorter than the six foot five or,whatever is the richest supposed to be,um this guy physically is his you know,spot hes very tall and hes extremely,well built um,and on that i would say so you know in,the books richard is you know hes this,hes his ex-military policeman hes hes,you know hes bumming around the the,states,um and hes supposed to be quite kind of,gruff and just macho whereas i think,this guy um,richer in the tv show basically looks,like a male model who spends all his,time in the gym so mrs criminally is,watching it with me and she is quite,enjoying that aspect of the show um,especially as richard tends to take his,shirt off quite a lot for,no good reason um so thats another,thing before i did though theyve thrown,in a bit of a bit of eye candy um for,people who like that kind of thing but,what theyve also done so in the books,um and to i think a greater extent in in,the um in the tv show richard is hes,hes a genius um investigator um and,hes also you know an unstoppable force,of nature um so hes you know hes hes,far sharper than any of the cops um and,you know there are a number of fight,scenes in this where he takes on you,know kind of six seven people at once,and easily wins so um to use a phrase my,son would use hes a bit opie hes a bit,overpowered and definitely in the books,thats the case um you know he comes,across as,being uh you know theres never any,doubt that,hes gonna hes gonna win um,what theyve done in the tv show in,terms of his character and i think,theyve developed this side of it it,feels like a bit more than in the book,so he comes across,quite a lot like,um,the portrayal of sherlock holmes in in,the more recent bbc adaptation,um with benedict cumberbatchs homes so,hes,kind of almost,a bit neurodiverse in terms of hes,incredibly blunt,with people he,it feels like he is incapable of lying,um and you know hes almost a bit,socially awkward at times in this um in,terms of how um honesty honesty is about,with with people about his opinions um,he doesnt doesnt hold back um,and as i say hes a genius like holmes,you know theres this kind of deductive,stuff going on in his brain all the time,and he just he will almost humiliate,other characters by telling them exactly,whats happened um in in a way that,makes him a,little bit of an ass at times um and and,also as ive said you know hes hes,physically unstoppable um and you know,he just so he ends up being a bit like a,cross between sherlock holmes and jason,bought um which is you know arguably a,bit too much you know even in as i say,in the books and in the show you dont,doubt whos going to win what theyve,done in the show which i think works,really well is they paired it up paired,him up with a couple of other characters,which whilst he seems pretty much,invulnerable you know they dont so,theyve managed to build in a bit of,tension by doing that so,um theres and i forget the names of,either of the characters theres um a,black um,chief of detectives in the town um who,has moved there from from boston whos,got some stuff going on in his in his,own life which kind of gets developed as,the series progresses um,and hes a great character hes quite,hes a bit of a stuffed shirt i suppose,is what you call him um and reacher and,him spa,brilliantly theres some really good,scenes of them just bouncing off each,ot
