Not having read any of the Jack Reacher books, I don't have a frame of reference to rate Tom Cruise as a "true" Jack Reacher. The movie was entertaining and a good escape for the time spent. I'd see it again and maybe now read a Jack Reacher book.

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.

We went to see it thinking it would just be another blow 'em up, shooting, action flick. But the story and plot was riveting. Plus, the action was great too. Loved it and its a must see.

A decent twist, good action sequences, and the story line is not bad... minus the MP (military police) background part...lol! Otherwise, an open mind wouldn't have any regrets.. but a highly critical viewer would enjoy picking the movie apart.

The quotes on this trailer are merely stating exactly what you're looking for. This is a movie that has good suspense with a great story. The action is amazing and it leaves you with a satisfaction with each action scene. This was not only entertaining but I found it very comical and fun to watch. I watched it on a date and we both enjoyed it.
