On 7.3.22 I stated that before he became the energizer bunny in a series of action franchise films, Tom Cruise was a real actor who delivered like a pro in several top-grade dramas. Mickey Rourke's criticism of Cruise is valid if you're focusing entirely on the franchise stuff, but he was excellent in the following 15 substantial films (in this order and excluding all of his high-powered, robo-bunny formula action franchise films): Jerry Maguire, Collateral, Risky Business, The Firm, Born on the Fourth of July, Rain Man, Jack Reacher, American Made, The Color of Money, Tropic Thunder, A Few Good Men, Edge of Tomorrow, Losin' It, Interview with the Vampire, Magnolia.
