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.

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.

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.

Action adventure movies are my favorite and this first of what I think will be several Jack Reacher movies was great. Kept my interest as the character is such a good detective as well as macho character. He cares about the truth and protecting the innocent.

I grew up in the Tom Cruise era where all the girls swooned over him - so I did just the opposite - leaving me with the ability to view him without my rose colored glasses and say this was yet another great acting job. This movie was AWESOME from beginning to end and all the actors were PERFECT in their roles! Every part of this movie was perfectly pitched in action, tension, mystery and humor - this was honestly the best movie I've seen this year. I took my 16 year old for Christmas and he loved it too. I think there may have been ONE cuss word in the entire move but it delivered such an appropriate punch that it didn't even seem like a cuss. SUCH A GOOD MOVIE!
