I'm surprised this movie hasn't crushed the little men with big hairy feet movie! Love the last scene-explains my title for this review. GO SEE IT!

You get what you paid for in this film...lots of stunts and action. Sadly, there's much else here. If you need a break from the musical extravaganzas and family comedic romps currently on the screen, this wouldn't be a bad choice. It's entertaining enough, meaning it holds ones attention for the duration. As for satisfying, well I suppose that's a judgment call. This viewer enjoyed the film. So I say, see it, you won't be disappointed.

I love it ... I didn't know Rosamund Pike is playing, that's a real pleasant surprise.
The only thing I don't like is some of the missing details. E.g.: in the last scene, Tom is soaking wet after a gun fight outside, but when he enters the trailer, he doesn't have a single drip of water??

I was disappointed when Tom Cruise was picked as Reacher. Reacher is over 6 feet tall and intimidating when he wants to be. Cruise is short and proved to be a GREAT Reacher. I was pleasantly surprised. I enjoyed the movie. They changed the ending from a bloody mess in the book to a fast and cleaned up ending in the movie.

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
