Ex-military investigator Jack Reacher (Tom Cruise) leaps off the pages of Lee Child’s bestselling novel and onto the big screen in the explosive thriller the critics are calling “taut, muscular, gruff and cool”*. When an unspeakable crime is committed, all evidence points to the suspect in custody who offers up a single note in defense: “Get Jack Reacher!” The law has its limits, but Reacher does not when his fight for the truth pits him against an unexpected enemy with a skill for violence and a secret to keep. * Peter Suderman, THE WASHINGTON TIMES

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Reacher is limited by a lack of originality and hampered by thematic cliches and generic action sequences.
Fresh: There is a dogged leanness to Reacher's pursuit that lifts his adventures from the generic rut ...
Fresh: It's touching beyond measure to see an ex-jarhead and a former soldier putting aside their differences in a display of mutual respect, understanding and shooting bad guys in the face.
Fresh: This is brisk, attention-grabbing, and generally unpretentious -- basically an old noir programmer inflated to blockbuster proportions.
Not Jack but great
He might not be 6'5" as the Reacher in the novel but I still enjoyed the movie version.
Having read all the Reacher books, I looked forward to this movie - even though Tom Cruise isn't as tall as Jack. I really enjoyed it - Cruise brought his own dimension to the character that was effective and resembled Reacher in the novels.
By the way, you can't rent Early Digital Releases until they are available for purchase in stores. Apple does EDR's as a bonus so people who really want to watch the movie can do so by buying it… if you don't want to watch it enough to buy it, then be patient like everyone else. Don't downgrade a movie just because you can't rent it yet.
Great movie, Tom did a great job of imposing himself making me forget about his size lol, plus he boots some punk in the junk after helping him up haha.
Also, this movie has one of my all time favourite car chases. Unbelievably well done. No music, just the roar of that V8 and tires squealing.
