Tom Cruise in Action the way we like him

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!

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.

Highly-Entertaining! Cruise (mostly) made me overcome my doubts re: his casting as Reacher.

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.

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. Sorry Tom.

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.
