I picked-up this DVD on the cheap (8.00)expecting another Tom "cruise" with the usual array of boyish charm and a heavy spattering of mildly ridiculous fight scenes (Aka Knight & Day) so as i settled into the sofa with a glass of wine I put my brain into neutral and pressed play.

I was initially taken with the title sequence and opening scenes which had a haunting coldness akin to the Dirty Harry movies and when the withdrawn, brooding but potentially very dangerous loner approach started creeping in I actually started to believe that I may enjoy the film. An hour and a half later I was still sat there with an empty glass (Unusual for me)as I had been totally and utterly engrossed in what turned out to be a totally first-class whodunnit/thriller.

Forget the books, ignore the fact that it is Tom cruise and this romp is right up there in the Dirty Harry league and for those who complained about the lack of "Action" (Mindless violence)I suggest you stick to Sly/Arnie movies.

First off I'm not a huge Cruise fan, though I do feel he has matured as an actor over the years and is certainly more than capable of delivering the goods when required.

In this case I think the film worked well, it is good...but possibly not quite the epic it might have been.
I don't want to spoil the story line (which is well paced, and interesting) Cruise is good in his role, and puts in a solid performance. He's kept himself in decent shape too, which helps the action side a decent bit.

Rosamund Pike, easy on the eyes but more importantly she can act and does well for a supporting role. The rest of the cast also quite happy with they are good in their supporting roles, also nice to see Robert Duvall in here too.

I found the film held my attention from start to finish (a good sign) This is more a thinking film so if you want a lazy night in with a casual or no plot movie, you might be better off with a Jason Statham offering. Nice camera work, good script, decent strong acting, and a good story this delivers well on that front. Action wise some good bits (this is by no means an all guns blazing no plot film), nice driving sequence and a good conclusion with a tense shoot out at the end. If there is anything to be critical, it's that this doesn't in some ways offer much new to the genre, but then few do.

Without revealing any of the story (it's really quite good and not as it seems from the start) I think this is well worth checking out if you want a thinking mans action film. A decent 4/5 film, I did enjoy it and the people watching it with me also like it. At just over 2 hours it's a tad longer than some, but I kept me watching and eager to see the story unfold. Certainly one of the better films in recent years in the genre.

As a long-time fan of the books I was, like many I'm sure, not entirely convinced that Tom Cruise was the man to bring the character to the screen. Indeed it was an occasional pastime to try to think of someone who COULD fit the role, and I have to say that I was stumped. Lee Child, however, had no qualms at all regarding Tom Cruise in the role, as he reveals in the interview included in the Blu-ray edition... and he's completely right, as Cruise is brilliant in the part. The various fight scenes are, it could easily be argued, even more startling because Cruise doesn't have the 6'5" 250 pound stature of the book-version of Mr. Reacher. If you've avoided the film for this reason, suspend your disbelief for just a few minutes and then settle back and enjoy possibly Tom Cruise's best acting yet - he really is that good.

What adds to the pleasure of this film, however, are the superb cinematography and editing. There is a palpable feeling of menace right from the start, and the pace just builds and builds throughout the film. An excellent film that does not disappoint, and does the original story full justice.

My enjoyment of this film was not spoilt by preconceptions of the actor playing the eponymous role,a problem for some who have enjoyed the Lee Child books.
I may have felt the same way after reading 'The Godfather' and finding Roger Moore as Vito Corleone---thankfully Brando and De Nero saved the day.

In my opinion Cruise handled the part well.He brought just enough realism to Jack Reacher to make it work,a blend of gut logic and fighting skills,and less computer know-how than the other Jack from '24'.
OK,there was the expertly handled car-chase(thankfully not too long) from someone who apparently doesn't possess a driving licence.But as I've said I haven't read the novels so it didn't seem incongruous to the plot.

The plot was interesting and believable with few plot-holes for such a fast,action packed thriller,and it did make for 2 hours of exciting well staged entertainment.
Brilliant cameo from Robert Duvall once again---the man is pure talent!

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.
