Who should play Reacher

The Reacher books are great. Tom Cruise is a terrific actor but not as Reacher! The guy who plays John on the TV series Person of Interest would have been perfect.

Highly-Entertaining! Cruise (mostly) made me overcome my doubts re: his casting as Reacher.

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.

Yup This is a really enjoyable, action packed and good movie. Straight out of the text books, I think he even wore the Top Gun Jacket :) Go and see this movie.

I love to look at Tom Cruise...but even his looks were not enough to make me sit through the whole movie. Script was sad. I love action movies...but this was a waste of time. Sorry Tom.

I am probably like millions that enjoy the Lee Child Reacher series - i was REALLY was excited when i saw the headline that FINALLY we're getting a Reacher movie! But within seconds after moving my eyes to the story & was bewildered that Tom Cruise would play Jack himself? So there i was - exhilarated one sec - stunned the next - Promised myself I not to watch the trailer but best laid plans & all that.. so the trailer comes out & it didn't look bad. The week before the release & almost as if against my will i put in for a vacation request that day - not sure why - but i know somewhere in the back of my mind a plot is hatching.. went to the first showing on Friday & LOVED IT! Very smartly made movie with excellent mix of action - one liners - Jack being Jack - sort of like Liam Neeson's Taken persona on steroids! - a MUST SEE as i am now speaking for millions of Reacher fans when i say CAN'T WAIT TILL THE NEXT ONE! Thanks Tom for taking this on & giving us what we have wanted
