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 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!

Even though Life of Pi won the Academy Award that year in this category, IMO, utilizing the camera through the lens of a sniper rifle was marvelously accomplished, which kept me on the edge of my seat throughout that scene.

Where to begin? Within the first five minutes, it is crystal clear that this low-budget, poorly written movie would be a true stinker. Beyond the fact that Tom Cruise bares no resemblance to the hulking character of Lee Child's Jack Reacher -- the acting is abominable. The one bright spot was Robert Duvall's portrayal of Gunny. Run, with your toothbrush in your pocket!

If you're into movies about people being framed, you're in for a treat! Tom let me down a bit. I was expecting more butt-kicking scenes. Nothing special here, if you want more action watch Tom in Collateral.
