This review is from: Jack Reacher [Blu-ray] [Region Free] (Blu-ray)
This was a lot of fun to watch, in fact it's probably the best Tom Cruise film I've seen in a while. It starts with a sniper shooting several people seemingly randomly. The shooter is quickly caught, but requests that Jack Reacher investigate. The basic premise of the story is pretty simple and not very original, but it is well told.
Tom Cruise does a good job with the role and has some good moves on him. The film blends action with the investigation well. The bad guys are suitably nasty, although the actual plot is reasonably low key, which works for me. It all feels very gritty, but has more than the violence to keep the story going.
The plot has the requisite twists and turns to keep things interesting. It doesn't require you to think too hard, but you don't have to turn your brain off either. Good fun and well worth a watch.
