Ex-military investigator Jack Reacher leaps off the pages of Lee Child's bestselling novel and onto the big screen in this explosive thriller. 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.

Good action flick with some predictable plot twists and ok story. Fight choreography was a little humorous at some points. Focus on the clues and evidence was sort of weak.

Decent action film, with some good plot twists. Tom Cruise plays this character well, with a sharp edge not normally seen in his other parts. Enjoyable for a 2 Hour respite from a long day.

i HATED this movie. I honestly laughed at some of the more supposedly "intense" scenes because i thought the character was being sarcastic, and even tongue in cheek (the phone conversation alone was funnier than most comedy's out nowadays.) Usually i enjoy these movies on a sunday afternoon, but this was nothing but crap. Skip this... please. Unless you want a good laugh at the films expense.

Overall pacing was pretty good, acting was all right, but basically forgettable - typical action get the bad guys movie.

This is one of Tom Cruise's best movies. In it you see how greed, corruption of power drives a person to do immoral things. You also get to see the spectrum of human living, how most people are unhappy and trapped in their daily lives. Jack Reacher shows that to the woman playing the attorney representing the man who supposedly killed five people but in reality was set up to take the fall.

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.
