  • Summary: Given the reviews - turned out better than I was expecting. I didn't mind the characters, though the plot was overly convoluted. Still, unlike say a Bourne or Mission Impossible - I don't think this will take off as an action series but even if things get complicated, it's not a bad actioner.

  • Summary: Like Mission Impossible but simply not good. Cruise is as flat as a pancake. I don't know why he continuously selects action only roles. He needs to skip these and add some depth. The story is weak as well. Forgettable.

  • Summary: While I do not think Tom Cruise has aged well, there is no question he is a talented actor. I have not read the Jack Reacher books, so I can not claim if the movie kept to the nature of such books. The movie was enjoyable and had a few plot twists that kept me entertained. It was worth the time spent watching and the money spent purchasing.

Nothing new here *crowd sighs and backs away*

  • Excerpt: I am a fan of Jack Reacher. I am. I've read some of the books and I like the hardcore character Lee Child has created. But when I heard Tom Cruise was casted as Jack Reacher in the movie, my facepalm was so severe, my hand went through my head. I have nothing against Tom Cruise. Admittedly, the guy is a little nuts with Scientology and all, but he still is a damn fine actor in movies such as Jerry Maguire and Magnolia. But nowadays, I can't stand him in action movies.

An Appalling Disaster

JLFM, FilmCrave

  • Excerpt: Jack Reacher baffled me. This has nothing to do with the plot being complicated (as it's insulting to the intellect) or a twist I didn't see coming (as any twists in this film can be seen from a mile away). Jack Reacher baffled me because it was moderately successful at box office, moderately successful with critics, and moderately successful with audience members.

Reacher does not reach perfection

28 May 2013
  • Excerpt: Jack Reacher Directed by Chrsitopher McQuarrie Starring Tom Cruise, Rosamund Pike 2/4 A serious mismatch here! Tom Cruise plays the smart and intelligent detective with a military past. The problem here, is the plot. A basic wafer thin plot, intentionally complicated to lose your heads out. Reacher is choked with plenty of dialogs and one who sits and patiently listens to it might feel slightly disappointed. McQuarrie’s direction lacks energy.

Great !!

  • Summary: All the 1 star reviews are from fans of the book stating Tom Cruise doesn't look how the book says he should, who cares. The movie should and can stand on its own as a great movie, with all the ingredients of a stellar action/suspense film. I'm looking forward to other installments, I will say this though the movie trailer made this movie out to be less then it is. I wish I was able to see this film in the theaters but the trailer through me off, GREAT MOVIE!

Cruise Control!

MovieAddict, FilmCrave
19 May 2013
  • Excerpt: "You think I'm a hero, I'm not a hero. I'm a drifter with nothing to lose." Tom Cruise plays Jack Reacher, a rough ex-military cop who is enjoying early retirement in near paranoid solitude. When a former army sniper, James Barr expertly shoots and kills five random people at PNC Park in Pittsburgh during broad daylight, the police are quick to arrest him.
