We went to Reacher less because we wanted to go and more because we wanted to see a movie. Had no idea what it was about and we were extremely happy we'd gone afterward. Tom Cruise played a very likable Jack Reacher.
I realize that this is a pretty lackluster review, but my point in all this is that I think Reacher was under marketed or I somehow missed all the hype about it. I'm glad I did because my wife and I were both blown away by this great movie. Definitely see it.

Jack Reacher was fun, thrilling, with moments of subtle humor. Tom Cruise presented what we like to see from Tom Cruise. His Jack Reacher was a likeable (slightly sociopathic) hero who I rooted for throughout the movie.
Rosamund Pike also acted well. She is beautiful, and her character Helen was smart and sexy.
It was a nice pleasure to see Tom Cruise and a “the guest actor” teamed up once again. Their banter seemed genuine, as if that’s how they relate to each other in real life.
Go see it! You will have fun!

I honestly wasn't sure what type of movie this was going to be; I was skeptical and couldn't enjoy myself. I was happy to find that there was a good plot with a mystery to be solved. I'm not into some of the violence personally, but I liked the occasional unexpected humor to ease the tension. I do think the rating is accurate. Don't bring little ones; this is more for teens and adults. One small warning, if you're upset by recent events in the news, you may want to wait to see it. The opening made me a bit emotional because of this.
I have never read the book that this movie was based on; so, I can't compare the two. The movie, however, had enough twists and turns to keep me interested, and the main characters got me to cheer for them. I think the movie was well acted, and had some very visually exciting scenes(cars, fights, I don't want to give too much away).
Overall, in my opinion it's pretty good. I'm going to need to see it again when I can relax and enjoy the show

My husband and I really enjoyed this movie. Lots of plot twists which kept it interesting. I had read some of the Jack Reacher books so I was in the skeptic group about Tom Cruise and his size not living up to the book version. This was not a problem at all. Tom did a great job as always in this kind of show. Rest of the cast also had good performances.

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.
