Excellent film. Non-stop action!!
My friends and I chose to see this movie in spite of the critics poor reviews, and we were very pleasantly surprised! The acting was well done, and even though I hear that he doesn't resemble the character in the book, Tom Cruise was extremely convincing in this film and his acting was supurb. Admittedly, the plot was thin, but then what do you really expect from a shoot 'em up action thriller? Robert Duval's appearance was also a pleasant surprise and who would dare argue his screen presence? To no one's surprise, he proved excellent in this supporting role!
With an intense car chase scene and a truly nail-biting conclusion, this film is probably one of the better edge-of your seat action thrillers that I've seen in a very long time. Apologies to those who've read the books, but I very much enjoyed the introduction of the very wise, cocky and confident Jack Reacher character. I'm now looking forward to seeing more of Jack's exploits make their way to the silver screen!
