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.

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.

Definately a movie worth seeing. Not for the faint at heart as there is killing in the movie that is just plain CRAZY. But I guess it's what people like to see. Nevertheless, the movie had a bunch of twists and turns and the story line was good. All the actors were fantastic and it was a good ending. Pick up your bags and go see this movie!

Loved it. The beginning is a little disturbing in light of the shooting in Newtown, CT. But if you love Tom Cruise, in action movies, this does not disappoint! And some funny moments as well in there.
