Watch Tom Cruise fight bad guys and not really get hurt!
Watch Tom Cruise get hit in the back of the head with a lead pipe and barely bleed!
Watch Tom Cruise drive 60's muscle cars just like in some of his other movies!
Watch Tom Cruise go shirtless in his motel room with his co-star!
Watch his new blonde co-star try to act and fail!
Watch people shot with a sniper rifle simply fall "gently" to the ground!
Watch Tom come into the room at just the right time!
Watch Tom Cruise play the same character over and over!
Watch Werner Herzog be wasted in a supporting role!

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.

Let me start by saying that I am not crazy about Cruise. That being said, I went with an open mind. I mean, I enjoyed the MI movies......this movie just didn't make it past average for me. They dwelled on the character of Jack Reacher more than they did the plot. They didn't develop the story well. I know we will see more Jack Reacher movies coming out........I just won't be spending my money on them.

Read the book and series and really enjoyed it. While they followed the story well, Reacher's power and strength comes from his understanding of his very large size and how to control and use it effectively. Having the shortest guy in the movie try to convince you that he is that tough by looking at him (and why need 5 guys to go after him if he is so short in stature? - not believable). Can't believe one punch from him could knock someone out in the same way as one bad guy twice his size, and have the audience believe it, insults our intelligence.
Let's not wreck the book or Jack Reacher's reputation and find a real actor that actually reflects the character. Why Childs ever allowed this change in character or role selection, if he had anything to say about it, is a mystery. There had to be a better choice of actors who would better reflect the real Jack Reacher.
