Jack Reacher

An absolutely very smart film!! Tom Cruise is fantastic as always! I thought Skyfall, Breaking Dawn, and even The Hobbit were going to be the best movies of the year, not so! Jack Reacher has a great script, excellent acting, great balance of acting and action and very well thought out. I love a film where you think you know what's going on but you really don't. By far the best movie of the holiday season and a grown up only must see.

Cruise Has A New Franchise

I have to say that I was surprised that it is better than I thought it would be. Suspenseful, investigative with some fairly good action scenes. There was one which made me go "Hmm?" but overall this is a good film for the genre.

Jack Reaching for a Plot

By Darkola

I actually waited 2 days after the movie to review it, and am glad I did as I probably would have given this a little better rating if I didnt take the time to really think about it. I did not read the books, and have noticed many say that Jack Reacher is suppose to be alot taller, well over 6 foot tall, which Tom Cruise definitaly isnt, but being I didnt read the book, and honestly not being a Tom Cruise fan, did think he did a good job playing his part, there was plenty of action throughout. The only real problem I have with this movie, and maybe if you see it you'll pay real close attention to the story, but I didnt get the "Plot" of the movie, or if I do understand the plot in what I think it was, then it seems far fetched that so many people would be killed for just that. I dont want to give the movie away, but do suggest when you learn why the shootings happened, really pay close attention the real "why", what was gained. I'd give this 2 1/2 stars because I'm still lost a bit.

Critics are retards! They didn't like it because the movie moves a half-step faster than you can figure it out. LOTS OF FUN! And it's very lame to say that it's a cross between the Bourne movies (of which the last one was stupid and forgettable) and the James Bond movie (of which Skyfall stands alone as work of art and a dark, emotional movie ). So yeah, go, and spend a little money to see at a good theater with a GOOD sound system.

Very Good adaptation

I see the trailer around 2 months ago and begun to check the books, and the movie take many essence of the character and transfer very good to the story line and the practical jokes are over the top. I feel very satisfied with the movie.
