Thoughts: 2012 had its highs and lows for Tom Cruise. He came into 2012 with a hot film (Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol), turned in a great performance in a box office bomb (Rock of Ages), went through a very public divorce, and is ending the year with a new film (Jack Reacher) that is getting above average reviews. It won’t be long before Cruise will be back with this sci-fi epic from the director of the underrated Tron: Legacy that looks quite entertaining. Add a cast of interesting faces and impressive effects and Cruise may be back on top by this time next year.
