Not having read any of the Jack Reacher books, I don't have a frame of reference to rate Tom Cruise as a "true" Jack Reacher. The movie was entertaining and a good escape for the time spent. I'd see it again and maybe now read a Jack Reacher book.

I've been a Jack Reacher fan for several years. I think the movie with Tom Cruise captured the essence of the character and did a good job of presenting the novel, "One Shot." For Reacher fans, getting past the physical differences between Tom Cruise and the Lee Child character is the only stretch, so to speak, since Lee Child gave Jack Reacher a height of 6'5" and a strong build to go with it.
There was plenty of action, a plot that pulled the thinking fan into the movie and characters that were developed well enough to keep me engaged in the twists of the plot. In the season of so many releases, I think Jack Reacher is well worth seeing on the big screen.

I was a little leary of Tom Cruise playing a 6'5' 250LB. hero, but he nailed it. I was suprised at how close it followed the book. I have all Lee Childs Jack Reached books and can't wait for the next one to come out. Now I will allways see Tom Cruise as Jack Reacher.

Tom Cruise did an excellent job, as usual. He is great in these kinds of action roles. The
content was intense, yet entertaining and at times funny. Loved it all.

Excellent story, great acting... a very enjoyable experience!
It's a non-agenda film... a nice change from the inconvient anti-fracking, gun control movies Hollywood normally puts out.
Go see it... you'll be glad you did!
