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.

Definately a movie worth seeing. Not for the faint at heart as there is killing in the movie that is just plain CRAZY. But I guess it's what people like to see. Nevertheless, the movie had a bunch of twists and turns and the story line was good. All the actors were fantastic and it was a good ending. Pick up your bags and go see this movie!

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.

Tom's version of Taken. I'd like to see more.

Real good action. I hated to see them wreck the Chevelle, broke my heart. Plot was real interesting. Cruise is believable as a confident but reluctant tough guy. Great characters. You got to love Robert Duval.
