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 enjoyed the car chase and the shoot-outs between Reacher and an old marine vs. the bad guys. There's also a lot to be said for the premise that Reacher is a sort of Punisher making his way from one bad guy to the next, exacting justice and vengeance for the good guys. However, the story in this film is weak and the conversations are pointless, even when the investigation in moving along. This movie isn't for everyone, but there's some valuable junk here for the hardcore action fan.

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

Being a Jack Reacher fan and not a Tom Cruise fan, I was quite reluctant to see the movie. To my surprise, Cruise did a decent job of portraying Reacher, however, the movie itself was just not as sharp as the books are. The books have all the tenseness that the movie had but not all the extra, unnecessary drivel making it much longer than it needed to be. All in all, it was so-so. It could have/should have been more tightly wrapped. Skyfall was much better.

Ok, first let me say that after Cruise's plunge off the deep end, I haven't really been a huge fan so I was reluctant to watch the movie. However, I found the movie to be intriguing with good action scenes. I personally liked how "Reacher" could figure things out by what was missing and what wasn't. It was a good movie.
