For people coming here after reading the books: I too was skeptical, but feel that Cruise actually does a good job in portraying Reacher. It's of course not as good as One Shot, but it satisfies for someone who keeps saying after reading the books "when are they going to make this into a movie or something?"

I was really in the mood for a guy movie, and really enjoyed it. Tom Cruise, one of the best actors ever and also one of the worst, is in good form this time, playing a tough guy with a heart of gold, basically, although nobody in the movie believes that (except one! Great twist at the end!) the violence was a bit too gross for a fun movie imo, but otherwise it was not unlike watching Indiana Jones, only with an actual plot and mystery to solve.

We really liked this movie very entertaining. I have enjoyed the author's books and the character Jack Reacher. Hope more movies are made from Lee Child's books.

This mystery and thriller film is about a man who was accused of murdering five people and is brought into custody, until a famous and well respected investigator by the name of Jack Reacher begins to question the case. The movie stars Tom Cruise who often brought suspense and tension to the storyline with the portrayal of his character. However, this film was not nearly as action-packed as I was expecting and had many long scenes without many events or conclusions. I would rate this film 2.5/5 stars and recommend it to those who like mystery movies involving murder. @The_Reviewer of the Hamilton Public Library Teen Review Board

There isn't one shred of realism in the entire movie. Not one...
Lots of not so subtle Left-wing prop jabs though. (Standard Follywood.)
Tom is himself, so if you are just looking for some ridiculously "Bad-a$$", laconic character, who can leap tall buildings in 1/2 a bound, while fighting 5 guys simultaneously, AND baking a cake... Then you might enjoy this, as long as you Fast Forward through all the idiotic set-up dialog. : P
Rosamund Pike's character (and Rosamund Pike) is the whiny progressive poster child for the Left.
Funded by the Chinese. Gee, what a surprise. Not.
Oh, and Tom; unfortunately lots of cops DO vote democrat.

This is a good solid Action movie. The main character is intended to be a bit mysterious and outside the box.

I liked this non-fiction movie. It is too violent for children. It is not believable. It presents the main character as tough and independent. It is not convincing. It moves at a medium pace. It held my interest enough. The story is semi-strong. The script was well written.

As the previous comment stated; I too had a copy but it was destroyed by a pair of wayward gypsies and their racoon who entered my room through the window, whilst I was preparing pop tarts. What a coincidence...

Jack Reacher: Look out the window. Tell me what you see. You see the same things that you see everyday. Well, imagine you've never seen it. Imagine you spent your whole life in other parts of the world, being told everyday that you're defending freedom. Then you finally decide you've had enough. Time to see what you've given up your whole life for, everything. Get some of that "freedom" for yourself. Look at the people. You tell me which ones are free. Free from debt. Anxiety. Stress. Fear. Failure. Indignity. Betrayal. How many wish that they were born knowing what they know now? Ask yourself how many would do things the same way over again, and how many would live their lives like me.

Jack Reacher: You think I'm a hero? I am not a hero. I'm a drifter with nothing to lose. Now you killed that girl to put me in a frame. I mean to beat you to death and drink your blood from a boot! Now this is how it's gonna work. You're gonna give me the address and I'll be along when I'm damn good and ready. If she doesn't answer the phone when I call this number, if I even think you've hurt her, I disappear. And if you're smart, that scares you. Because I'm in your blind spot. And I have nothing better to do.

Jack Reacher: There're three things cops never do: they don't vote Democrat, they don't drive Cadillacs, and they never use personal vehicles.---Jack Reacher: There are four types of people who join the military. For some, it's family trade. Others are patriots, eager to serve. Next you have those who just need a job. Than there's the kind who want the legal means of killing other people.---James Barr (on JR): There's this guy. He's a kind of cop, at least he used to be. He doesn't care about proof, he doesn't care about the law, he only cares about what's right. He knows what I did. You can't protect me. No one can.

When an ex-Marine is accused of murder that he did not commit, he has to escape the government and the "bad guys" and some how figure out how the real shooter killed the victims. great movie very mind blowing at the end.
