I love to look at Tom Cruise...but even his looks were not enough to make me sit through the whole movie. Script was sad.
I love action movies...but this was a waste of time.

Very good movie, not the biggest Tom Cruise fan but I really loved this film, keeps you really into it the whole time, makes you guessing also. Would go see it again.

Just felt like it had too much of a 'superhero' type feel to it, lot of the scenes were just a bit too unreal, but it was a good laugh and worth the 8 bucks.

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.

After the incident in Sandy Hook, we were a bit uneasy about going to see this movie but a few minutes in the story/movie, we were trying to figure out the clues.
