You get what you paid for in this film...lots of stunts and action. Sadly, there's much else here. If you need a break from the musical extravaganzas and family comedic romps currently on the screen, this wouldn't be a bad choice. It's entertaining enough, meaning it holds ones attention for the duration. As for satisfying, well I suppose that's a judgment call. This viewer enjoyed the film. So I say, see it, you won't be disappointed.

It was a great film. Good adapation of the book; excellent distillation of the material. I think Paul Bettany would have been a truer physical depiction of the character (Reacher is 6'4" in book), but I loved it anyway.

Good grief...I actually laughed out loud multiple times. So heavy handed in the directing, and acting it was awful. I actually use to like Tom cruise, but this was a real mess. Don't waste your money on theater tickets.

Went to see this while my wife and daughter went to a chick flick. Good story with good action. Typical bad ***ex-military guy that can handle any situation. Not a Jason Bourne but very watchable.

Went to see Jack Reacher because Le Miserables was sold out and I was pleasantly surprised. The film was very entertaining, loaded with action and funny moments. I was glad that I went to watch it to cap off a nice Christmas gathering with the family. I understand that this is a series of books so I will definitely be interested in watching future Jack Reacher films.
