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.

I have to admit I haven't been the biggest Tom Cruise fan of late because of his unusual behavior BUT I liked this movie! I have not read this series of books yet but adored the character of Jack Reacher. The plot was deep enought to keep you guessing and the dialog was witty. It may not be for everyone if they don't like shoot-em up films but it was well shot and directed. I'd recommend it to those that like action flicks. Makes me want to read the series now and I hope they make another movie with Jack Reacher soon. I'll be the first in line!

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.

Absolutely one of the best Tom Cruise movies I've seen. Very well put together and the actors were definitely top shelf. I will, without a doubt, purchase the movie once released.
