I really enjoyed this movie! Great set of cast members! Tom Cruise is great, and does well playing this type of character. Lots of great action sequences, and a great storyline that never left me bored. Hopefully we will see more movies based on this book series starring Tom. Now I just need to go and read the books!

My husband and I really enjoyed this movie. Lots of plot twists which kept it interesting. I had read some of the Jack Reacher books so I was in the skeptic group about Tom Cruise and his size not living up to the book version. This was not a problem at all. Tom did a great job as always in this kind of show. Rest of the cast also had good performances.

Very well-done, faithfully-presented adaptation of Lee Child's gripping book. Inventive, gripping, and well-made. I thoroughly enjoyed the movie.
For the record, on principle I still profoundly regret the casting of Tom Cruise in the lead role as Jack Reacher (solely because I'm an avid follower if the series and over a decade+ Lee Child has inextricably painted a very specific body type--massive physical stature--into the minds of readers). That said, Cruise clearly demonstrates his commanding screen presence, and taking the role by itself, I was convinced and entertained.
Definitely worth seeing--in the theater. Pre-movie suggestion for Lee Child Reacher fans: Forget about the character from the books.

I really enjoyed this flick...have not read the book series so I can't judge if the script is true to the book, but it was an exciting 2 hours...not slow or boring. Very entertaining and best of all it has redeeming qualities...justice not political correctness...humor without the toilet...love it!

Just felt like it had too much of a 'superhero' type feel to it, lot of the scenes were just a bit too unreal, but it was a good laugh and worth the 8 bucks.
