Does Anyone Else Hate Tom Cruise?

Tom Cruise might be the worst actor of all time, and that's saying something. Mission Impossible is just SHIT, and the guy can't act, even in a remote sense of the term. Am I alone in this? Does anyone else hate Tom Cruise?

Darth, you aren't in ANY POSITION to call anybody a 'bad actor'.
This was a different thing for Tom. I found it drawn out and I fell asleep in it.And contrived.

Quite possibly the worst casting of any movie ever. Like casting Danny DeVito as an Olympic high jumper.

I think what we're somewhat tired of is the cult of stardom that surrounds people like Tom Cruise. It would be better if these egomaniacs found some fresher faces to put out there instead of producing and starring in their own movies and forcing themselves down our throats year after year. But I still go to their movies because there's not much else to do in the way of affordable entertainment these days.

Have you seen Magnolia? The guy can act, it's just the projects he's attached to these days. Have you seen Ben Affleck's performance in Argo? It's worse than anything Cruise has ever done, and yet look at that RT score it got XD

Tom Cruise can't act - that's a fact ! But he can't act in exactly the same way that John Wayne couldn't. In other words he can take on roles that don't need any acting ability. The sad part is that he sometimes does take on those roles and SPLAT ! He reached the pinnacle of this with Jack Reacher...by 'buying' a role that he was never suited for he made himself a target for, not anyone who doesn't like him but for anyone who appreciates good movies and actors. I hope he's learned a lesson not to caste 'himself' in roles he can't play and sticks to his 'John Wayne' genre.

Haven't liked Cruise for alot of years. His earlier movies were fine but after "Interview with a Vampire", he seems to take himself so brutally serious that all his movies seem like comedies.

Hell no, a lot of people hate him.

Not me, but I don't particularly like him - he's a dick in real life, but I still enjoyed Jack Reacher. Never read the books though. Seems like a lot of book fans really didn't like him, which is fair enough.

My views of Tom have gone back and forth over time. I just saw Jack Reacher tonight and was a bit shocked that it only has 61%. I thought it was at least a solid 80% [ gave it 4/5 stars]. Sometimes his acting has a bit too much of 'him' for my liking [where he's just 'Tom Cruise' is 'a movie'] and I'm not a big fan of his personal views, but I heard he's an alright guy and I've enjoyed quite a few of his movies.

Tallulah...I suggest you read the book sometime and you'll really understand why so many 'Jack Reacher' fans are pissed at Cruise 'buying' the role he was totally wrong for. Most Reacher fans were excited at the prospect of the first movie and hoped it would lead to a franchise - that was until Cruise 'bought' the role. Now it seems not only has he pissed off 99% of the Reacher fans but probably destroyed all chance of another movie. A shame since they had so much potential with the right lead (anyone over 6 feet and NOT Tom Cruise).

I don't hate Cruise but I hate the stuff he puts out and calls it acting. I'm no fan of Russell Crowe but that man can act! Mr Crowe constantly surprises with his work on screen. Mr Cruise is always wooden and a one trick pony....look at any of his recent work and you could mix and match with either character cause they are all the same...LAME!

Hate is a strong word, but the moment I heard Cruise had been chosen to play Reacher, I knew I would never see the movie. As a die-hard fan of the Lee Child series, and the Reacher character, Tom Cruise would have been my last pick to play the part.

You are right when you say Tom Cruise is Tom Cruise. He is Tom Cruise playing Jack Reacher. They should have gotten a relatively unknown who is physically more imposing & as soon an actor. Lots of Reacher fans would have gone to see it; me included. But Hollywood just goes for the sure thing and really don't care what the ticket buying public wants. As for Mr. Child, hopefully he didn't sell out by agreeing to go with Cruise.

Worst actor? No. Try sitting through one of Nicholas Cage's excrements that he dares to call movies before you go bashing Tom Cruise. I don't like the guy's personality, but a few of his flicks are decent.

Marion Kahn you are an IDIOT! Go back to school, learn to spell! ROLL is not ROLE. The title of this section is..."Does Anyone Else Hate Tom Cruise?" Not defend T.C. He is great in all of his Mission Impossible movies. I just can't stand his views of the world in which he is is the center of. I can't stand his version and the writer of the book of Jack Reacher...There are too many good-looking, hunks with blonde hair, 6 ft 2 in. beefcakes that can do that part with their eyes close. i.e. Chris Hemsworth or his brother...hot!

The force-feeding continues.

After the audience and I who saw the trailer for Jack Reacher stopped laughing, I realized a few things. One: HE IS NO STEVE MCQUEEN. Then, I realized I had seen someone trying hard to sell their "star" as someone so tough, it would make Dirty Harry die of laughter--HE IS NO CLINT EASTWOOD. Then, I recalled another cringe-worthy piece of "reporting" from a few weeks ago, that he was planning on remaking The Magnificent Seven, with himself in the lead role, and realized--HE IS NO YUL BRYNNER.

But whatever his camp wishes to force-feed us, there are still plenty of cinema-goers who are not going to spend a dime on this "comedy." BTW, another spin piece on him being the "highest paid" last year--is that salary or earnings (makes a difference considering others were paid higher salaries)?

Also, this controversy DID occur before, with Ann Rice, who felt ‚??Huck Finn‚?? was playing her character; that controversy was gone, after Ms. Rice was to receive a considerable monetary deal for the adaptation with Cruise.

Rock of Ages bombed. MI4 earned most of its money in China, where most well-crafted US action films make a profit, regardless of its star.

Lessons learned: Question what you read now more than ever in this digital age, and don‚??t be afraid to laugh out loud in a movie theater.

According to storyteller Nicholas Meyer, ?an actor is someone who pretends to be somebody else. A movie star is somebody who pretends that somebody else is them. Actors will change their face, will change their hair, will change their voice, will disappear into the role. A movie star doesn't disappear.?

Tom Cruise is a movie star, although he's given great performances in RISKY BUSINESS, BORN ON THE FOURTH OF JULY and MAGNOLIA. Diego obviously needs to watch more movies before having the balls to say Cruise is the worst actor of all time, considering he's always been more movie star than actor. I hate TOP GUN as it's nothing more than a dumbed-down rip-off of AN OFFICER AND A GENTLEMAN, but I don't blame Cruise for that.

By the way, here are some worse "actors": Gerard Butler, Orlando Bloom, Adam Sandler, Zac Efron, etc.

Hey, Gerard Butler's pretty darn good man. Watch him in Coriolanus or Machine Gun Preacher. These are actors that have performances steered by the projects they choose.

The man can act reasonable well when he is cast properly, but in this case I'm afraid his acting pales into insignificance in the shadow of his ego. Tiny Tom is not Jack Reacher and the fact he thought he could just goes to show what a puffed up pompous litle pillock he is.

Just because he is a scientologist, it doesn't make him the worst. Open minded is all we need.. I feel a little sorry for them who always complain before watch the actual movie.. You can dislike this movie after you see it, but judge it before the release or hate someone else without any particular reason ? It represents the quality of your personality..

The very notion of you calling him the worst actor of all time is ludicrous. He is far, far, far from the worst. As the above comments have already mentioned, Taylor Lautner is one of the many actors who are worse than Tom.

Taylor Lautner is only 20 and has barely begun his career. Tom Cruise is fucking 50 with about 30yrs of acting under his belt. Why the hell are you guys even bringing TL into the conversation?

Compared to who?
There are very few actors who can carry a movie like Tom Cruise has done for at least 20 years of his career.
Name some actor/actress from the late 80's who is still making movies and those movies making (domestic and/or internationally) at least 100 million? Robert Downey Jr., Brad Pitt, who else?
Tom Cruise "Worst actor of all time"? Far from it.

You are an idiotic hater. If Tom can't act, I can't figure out how bad Will Smith, Johnny Depp, Robert Downey Jr. and many other actors' acting are. He's no Robert De Niro but he's definitely far from Taylor Lautner.
