Frankly, I don't think I've ever seen Cruise be terrible. Maybe I'm forgetting some parts, though

Oh, he's been in many terrible movies - but to me it seems like he always tries hard to take the material seriously and treat even the turds with a lot of respect.

I think most modern action stars are really bland and lacking in personality and on-screen presence if you compare them to Cruise.

That said, I have a very powerful mistrust of Scientology - and I pity anyone who can't function properly without surrendering common sense completely.
