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.

We went to see it thinking it would just be another blow 'em up, shooting, action flick. But the story and plot was riveting. Plus, the action was great too. Loved it and its a must see.
