Pretty good for aTom Cruise comeback.
A good, action flick with not a lot of over the top violence, or unneccessarily gaudy action scenes as has become the norm with "military-themed" action movies.
Tom Cruise as Jack Reacher makes very good sense, as the biggest, loudest guy in the room is not necessarily the most dangerous....usually the wanna-be in the crowd.
Also, it seems there was a painful effort made NOT to force romance into the movie. However; you can see where the attempt was approached to insert some sexual tension in, but it was intentionally shot dead.
Bravo on that. It's a thinking man/woman's action movie.
