When you hire Tom Cruise to be in your Tom Cruise movie, there's never a question that you're going to get your money's worth. The movie may not be worth the expense, but as a professional who delivers 100 percent 100 percent of the time, Cruise will give the proceedings his undivided attention. In Jack Reacher Cruise plays the title character with complete gusto, and even though it ends up a pretty run-of-the-mill crime drama, his presence and commitment elevates this violent, bloody, and attractively atmospheric movie to the level of, well, a reliably pleasurable Tom Cruise experience. Jack Reacher is the protagonist in a series of popular novels by Lee Child. There was some sniping among fans that Cruise bears no resemblance to Child's Reacher, a burly, shadowy former army policeman who has moved into the private investigator business--but mostly for Cruise himself. No matter; as a leading man, Cruise is always going to be himself anyway, so the ghostlike qualities built in to his character take on their own mythical qualities that allow both Cruise and Reacher to get the job done. In a somewhat unsettling opening sequence that shows a lone gunman killing a handful of seemingly random people at a public park, the mystery is born and Reacher materialises to help the police sort things out. Again seemingly, the killer has been positively identified and apprehended and is dead-to-rights guilty. But this former army sniper asks for Jack Reacher to suss out the deeper crazy truth. Reacher and the alleged gunman have a history that dates back to their military service when Reacher investigated him for heinously murdering civilians during a psychotic break, a crime that he really did commit, but for which he went unpunished due to one of those pesky legal technicalities. Nevertheless, Reacher's goal is justice, and his investigative instincts tell him this new crime points in an entirely different direction. There are several sequences that play brilliantly in the context of Reacher's skill as a killing machine on his own. One takes place in the close confines of a tiny hallway and bathroom where Reacher faces down a posse of thugs armed with guns and a baseball bat, besting them all in a flurry of acrobatic brutality. He also single-handedly beats up a gang of toughs in the alley behind a bar. But the movie's high point is an excellent chase scene between two roaring muscle cars on the dark streets of Pittsburgh (the city itself plays a great role throughout), with Cruise clearly and expertly handling the wheel himself. Though somewhat convoluted, the plot is well conceived and the large cast supports Cruise's commanding presence nicely. Richard Jenkins and Robert Duvall do their usual excellent work, though it is Werner Herzog as a wildly over-the-top villain who makes things positively gleeful in his few scenes. Of course it always comes back to Tom Cruise and his dedication to the movie's greater good that makes Jack Reacher so enjoyable, even when its reach exceeds its grasp. --Ted Fry

3.0 out of 5 stars On OK job 16 July 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I have liked all the Jack Reacher novels and know the physical description of Reacher as described by Lee Child, so I was a bit surprised that an actor as short as Cruise took the part. I believe he bought the rights to cast himself. There are quite a few moments where the camera angle is obviously set up to make Cruise look taller than the other actors which isn't good. And I can only guess that when he walks into the bar before his first fight he is walking on a raised platform.

Cruise does a good job of being Reacher and the story line does stay close to the book (but leaves chunks out).

However, Cruise 'rolling' into the prone position to fire the rifle on the range - absolute tosh! No sniper would engage his weapon like that! And as for controlling the bullet casings and ejecting them into his hand - they are just meant to have been fired, they would have be extremely hot and burned him quite badly. I don't like it when they get such obvious things wrong.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 21 Jun 2014
By Expat
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Anybody who's read ANY of Lee Child's books featuring Jack Reacher will know that he's well over 6', blond and built like a brick s*** house! Therefore, why would any casting director in their right mind choose Tom Cruise for this part? I love Tom but not to play a character who is so well defined in Child's books. I found the acting very wooden and Tom not in the least believable in the role he was playing - don't think this film did him any favours.
The only plus for me was that they didn't mess around with the script too much and it stuck pretty well to the original book.

3.0 out of 5 stars Reacher-light and Action Movie-light 12 Jun 2013
Format:Blu-ray
I've read all the Reacher books (I think) and have no great objection to someone of Tom Cruise's size being cast as JR. As far as I am concerned, however, the film didn't do enough to differentiate itself from the many other 'Action movies' already made.

Not enough was made of the calm and brooding menace, and the great powers of deduction. I think that's a combination of the screenplay and direction, as well as the acting. TC can do many things but he certainly couldn't stride manfully about the police station in the early scenes and he couldn't scowl or stare down anyone, as in the scene in the bus depot. The attempt at a 'seven samurai' moment immediately before the car chase was quite poor.

And why have a car chase? That just put the film into similar territory as the Bournes, Bruce Willis and others. I think the time should have been spent developing and illustrating the character, to create something different and play to its strengths. Talking of acting; I thought TC looked quite anxious whilst driving the car - I imagine JR isn't anxious about anything.

I enjoyed the opening scenes, the telling of a story without dialogue. We saw something of the analysis and sleuthing but not really enough. I just think that in the end we had a passable but identikit action movie when there had been a good opportunity to create something better.

this film starts out like a stylish remake of Dirty Harry. Even the music is lalo-esque. I was expecting gritty minimal dialogue and some great action "sketches". However, Tom Cruise produced this movie as a vehicle for himself and as the film goes on he steadily becomes the standard Tom Cruise for any one of 20 films. Don't get me wrong, I really enjoyed this but it could have been a classic movie, it had all the makings. The character acting is very good and the cameo by Robert Duvall is cliche but entertaining. The mystery thriller aspect to the film holds up well but the pace is too quick when things get "solved" giving this more of a scooby-doo feel at times. The blu ray disk is superb, fantastic HD transfer and very good subtle HD sound mix. So yes buy this if you want a great popcorn movie that is gritty ( occasionally brutal ) and pacey but bear in mind this is by no means a classic film.

3.0 out of 5 stars Jack Reacher - On Cruise Control 15 April 2013
By Red on Black TOP 50 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
Having watched this film you puzzle at its conclusion what attracted Cruise to the anti hero of Lee Child's source novel and beg a simple question doesn't Tom Cruise get fed up of playing Tom Cruise? This film is fine at what it does and the words "competent", "passable", "workmanlike" and "solid" spring to mind. It's the sort of film that gets 60% on Rotten Tomatoes and try as much as you like its difficult not to warm to Cruise. The plot centres on one of Child's "Reacher" novels, "One Shot," about what appears to be a clear open-shut case against a urban sniper. The police round up him up after a shooting spree in Pittsburgh with enough evidence to put him in the clink for a lifetime. Sadly just when the D.A. thinks he's getting a signed confession, the sniper is instead scribbling a message: It reads "Get Jack Reacher." The opening scene setting this out is very tense and well handled but throughout there are are echoes of Rambo and the action sequences which are fine as far as they go never really hit the "wow" button. "Jack Reacher" is essentially I Max fodder even though on occasions you sense that a much darker beast could be teased out of Childs novels who in turn is hardly the Shakespeare of crime writers. Perhaps Cruise needs to look to some of the writers of Nordic Noir to give him a fresh approach which revolves around compelling story lines as opposed to knitting together set piece pyrotechnics? As a slice of forgettable escapist entertainment this film ticks all the boxes, as a great film it comes no where near the description.
