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.

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!

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.

I really enjoyed this movie and I'm truly saddened that they haven't done a sequel.
Tom may have got some flak for not resembling the book character of Jack Reacher at all, but Tom is a strong actor and a good action star.
It was all done seriously, without silliness, yet still retained some good humour throughout at appropriate places.
I also appreciated that it was a movie with a rather normal villain, instead of some super-villain trying to take over or destroy the world and that it didn't rely on explosions. The fight choreography was excellent.

I have read pretty well all of the Jack Reacher novels. An interesting and entertaining character combining with fast moving, never a dull moment action. Not the book I would have chosen to show off Lee Childs abilities as an author but was really pleasantly surprised at how good the film adaptation was done. Tom Cruise did a great job despite being a different physical specimen to that of Jack Reacher in the novels. Hats off to Mr Cruise, great delivery of the action scenes and combined that with some wit which fitted really well into the story line. It`s rare for me to say that I`m looking forward to seeing it again..........soon! Great entertainment!
