Very Well Done But Could Have Been Better

I'm a big fan of the Jack Reacher novels by Lee Child. I'm currently reading the last book in the series, A Wanted Man. Although the movie was very good, I still think they should have cast someone besides Tom Cruise to play as Jack Reacher. Not only is Tom Cruise a lot smaller than Jack is in the novels, he also was a little too cocky. In the novels Jack is portrayed as very confident but in a more subtle way, not always rubbing it in your face. I also didn't like some of the changes that they made in the story such as the area where the shooting took place and the final showdown with the villain and his crew. That having been said, I still think it was a very good movie! Go see it!

Great Thriller

I've read all the Reacher books, and Cruise nailed it, even though his stature is less then the character in the book. Cameo by the author was cool as well. Great characters in the movie. You've got to see this movie!

New Years Eve Movie

This movie was made by Tom Cruise and he sure used that opportunity to showcase his talent........ridiculous and laughable. i didn't know it was an action/comedy! It was like a B movie with one "A" lister. It was entertaining at best, so my advice is wait for it on DVD.

I've never read the book or books pertaining to this movie but If you're looking for Characters with loads of energy and "Theater chair Gripping" adrenalin rushes then this is a movie for you! If you enjoyed him in the Mission Impossible thrilogy then you'll love Tom in this!

Entertaining

The timing of the release of this movie due to current events hurts it's appeal. The opening was uncomfortable because of this, but the acting and plot quickly got me past this. I found myself involved and entertained. Action, mystery and humor.........no deep message. Just an entertaining release from the daily worries.
