Legendary director Werner Herzog says he wants to play a Bond villain: 'I think I would be good'
Reacher suffers from the "too close to Marvel" syndrome. It seems that in every modern hero movie the hero has to be perfect like a superhero. Actually I should take that back, Marvel superheroes commonly have angst, and internal conflicts which make them vulnerable.
Just make sure these action hero's are real enough to garner the attention of us oldsters. If they do, the films will have more legs, and longer lives.
