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 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.

I don't feel caught off-guard too often going into a movie. In fact, I love film so much I'm much more likely to be let down than pleasantly surprised when one is over. Yet, despite wanting to see Jack Reacher, I found myself thinking about a quarter of the way through it, "Wow, this is way better than I was expecting!" I soon realized that I'm not exactly sure what it was that I was expecting, but it wasn't a complete movie. I was thinking action with a thin-veiled plot and a platform for Tom to continue his ascent at 50 into a lethal action star. What the movie countered with was a story so involved and invested it could have only begun as a book, action that was heavy on the "bad-a" factor yet not at all unbelievable, and one heckuva perfomance by Mr. Tom Cruise himself. The rest of the cast was also wonderful, with the aging Robert Duvall spearheading that comment, and some fine directing. (When you make Pittsburgh look beautiful you've done something!) Go see Jack Reacher.

Overall it was an OK action and suspense flick, however the believability of the characters and story was strained. I can see Cruise trying to parlay this into a movie series. While I'm not a big Cruise fan, I thought he did a pretty good job acting in this one.
