One word: Magnolia. Cruise is astoundingly great in it.
Other movies with a stellar Cruise: Collateral, Rain Man, Eyes Wide Shut, Tropic Thunder, Born on the Fourth of July etc.
He is also very solid and engaging in the straight action lead role.
I too am quite put off by him as a public person, but I will never get why some people don't like him as an actor. And from what I have experienced he gets most of his hate domestically. Here in europe I feel he is very loved as an actor.
But I digress. Redford is awesome and I think it's damn cool when old cool hollywood cats like him take roles in superhero movies.
