I saw it, wasn't expecting much. But I liked it.

This cracked me up.
"It did not really matter what we expected from life, but rather what life expected from us. We needed to stop asking about the meaning of life, and instead to think of ourselves as those who were being questioned by life – daily and hourly. Our answer must consist not in talk and meditation, but in right action and in right conduct. Life ultimately means taking the responsibility to find the right answer to its problems and to fulfill the tasks which it constantly sets for each individual." Viktor Frankl, Man's Search for Meaning, 1946.
They should have remade the Adam West batman thing and Cruise could have done a very respectable Robin.

You also got to see them kill Tom's character over and over in that film.

I actually think Cruise improved with age, didn't like his earlier films (Risky Business, Top Gun, etc.) He has a bit more range than given credit for, but then I think a lot of "great" actors basically play themselves nowadays (De Niro, Depp, Pacino, etc.). Hell, I love John Wayne, but the guy played the same character for decades.
Sure, recent Cruise films have been less than stellar at the box office, but all have made boat loads of money overseas, where Cruise is still an enormous star. I thought Edge of Tomorrow and Obilvion were good movies, I enjoyed them. I'm a fan of Lee Child's books, but I thought Jack Reacher was a decent action movie.
One thing about Cruise; he may have been bat shit crazy a decade ago in some media appearances, but he has remained pretty sane in the past 10 years. He has kept politics out of his public image, and by all accounts is one the hardest working "stars" on set, working well with cast and crew. The guy makes shitloads of movies nowadays, and perhaps he knows the clock is ticking.
