Lee Child Fan

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.

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.

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.

Cruise is good in part

I have read all the Lee Child's/Reacher books so I went in with my idea of Reacher firmly in my mind . It was not Tom Cruise. HOWEVER, he did a very good job and I thought the movie stayed pretty true to the book. Being from Pittsburgh I enjoyed seeing how our city was incorporated into the movie and again thought it was an excellent job. Thoroughly enjoyed my night at the movies and I would say GO SEE it!. Plus can we have another one of Child's Reacher books made for movies!!!
