Miscast makes it just a go

I like Tom Cruise but to anyone following Jack Reacher since book one knows he's just not Reacher. Reacher is more like a modern day Paul Bunyon sized character who lead a life of arresting drunk Special Forces soldiers, among other things. I thought the acting was fine and the story was good but there was just a disconnect. Lee Child was great as the shrugging desk sergeant!!

Great Movie Probably bad Timing

We loved the movie unfortunately it was released in the middle of the Christmas Holiday Season when most people are taking their children to the movies and might choose the hobbit instead. Violent but not out of control and not graphic. I liked that fight seens didn't last forever like some movies. I'm looking forward to reading the books now.

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!

With a plot that has much interest the action is top notch, intriguing and weaves its way through the movie in an interesting way. This is a really good Tom Cruise effort. First in a long time! Good job Tom !!!

Jack Reacher

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.
