It isn't exactly the real Jack Reacher with a 5'8" actor portraying him, and some of his philosophizing was off key, but it's a high quality production with a good cast and script. As usual, the book is better than the movie but it's good enough that we're sure to see future editions.
You're not going to recognize Lee Child in his cameo role based on his photo in the books. He has aged considerably from when the picture was taken, but it still was a nice touch to have him in it.
No Reacher fan should pass this up.

I've read all the Reacher books, and Cruise nailed it, even though his stature is less then the character in the book. Cameo by the author was cool as well. Great characters in the movie. You've got to see this movie!

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.

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.
