Excellent story, great acting... a very enjoyable experience!
It's a non-agenda film... a nice change from the inconvient anti-fracking, gun control movies Hollywood normally puts out.
Go see it... you'll be glad you did!

I am probably like millions that enjoy the Lee Child Reacher series - i was REALLY was excited when i saw the headline that FINALLY we're getting a Reacher movie! But within seconds after moving my eyes to the story & was bewildered that Tom Cruise would play Jack himself? So there i was - exhilarated one sec - stunned the next - Promised myself I not to watch the trailer but best laid plans & all that.. so the trailer comes out & it didn't look bad. The week before the release & almost as if against my will i put in for a vacation request that day - not sure why - but i know somewhere in the back of my mind a plot is hatching.. went to the first showing on Friday & LOVED IT! Very smartly made movie with excellent mix of action - one liners - Jack being Jack - sort of like Liam Neeson's Taken persona on steroids! - a MUST SEE as i am now speaking for millions of Reacher fans when i say CAN'T WAIT TILL THE NEXT ONE! Thanks Tom for taking this on & giving us what we have wanted

Tom's version of Taken. I'd like to see more.

Real good action. I hated to see them wreck the Chevelle, broke my heart. Plot was real interesting. Cruise is believable as a confident but reluctant tough guy. Great characters. You got to love Robert Duval.

I've been a Jack Reacher fan for several years. I think the movie with Tom Cruise captured the essence of the character and did a good job of presenting the novel, "One Shot." For Reacher fans, getting past the physical differences between Tom Cruise and the Lee Child character is the only stretch, so to speak, since Lee Child gave Jack Reacher a height of 6'5" and a strong build to go with it.
There was plenty of action, a plot that pulled the thinking fan into the movie and characters that were developed well enough to keep me engaged in the twists of the plot. In the season of so many releases, I think Jack Reacher is well worth seeing on the big screen.
