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!

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!

I have read all the Lee Child's/Reacher books so I went in with my idea of Reacher firmly in my mind . It was not Tom Cruise. HOWEVER, he did a very good job and I thought the movie stayed pretty true to the book. Being from Pittsburgh I enjoyed seeing how our city was incorporated into the movie and again thought it was an excellent job. Thoroughly enjoyed my night at the movies and I would say GO SEE it!. Plus can we have another one of Child's Reacher books made for movies!!!

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.

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.
