I've never read the book or books pertaining to this movie but If you're looking for Characters with loads of energy and "Theater chair Gripping" adrenalin rushes then this is a movie for you! If you enjoyed him in the Mission Impossible thrilogy then you'll love Tom in this!

The timing of the release of this movie due to current events hurts it's appeal. The opening was uncomfortable because of this, but the acting and plot quickly got me past this. I found myself involved and entertained. Action, mystery and humor.........no deep message. Just an entertaining release from the daily worries.

This movie was made by Tom Cruise and he sure used that opportunity to showcase his talent........ridiculous and laughable. i didn't know it was an action/comedy! It was like a B movie with one "A" lister. It was entertaining at best, so my advice is wait for it on DVD.

OK, the biggest problem I have with this movie: Tom "too short" Cruse. If you have read any of the Reacher books, which are awesome, you know the character is tall, blonde, and built. He's an ex-army cop. Tom Cruse, by contrast, is short, wimpy, and gay-ish. Whoever cast this movie failed miserably. A no-name actor would have been a far better choice for the intro to a series. I can't fathom why they would have cast him in this role, unless he bought the rights to the film, and had himself cast in it.
Bottom line, the rest of the movie doesn't matter, it just doesn't fly with Tom Cruse as the lead.

Smart artists at work on this film. From the first frame until the last it was enjoyable to me. One of my favorite movies is Bullitt with Steve Mcqueen. Now I have two favorite films. Go.
