This is a very good movie. I really liked the story and I would like a friend like Jack Reacher in my life. This is one of the best movies that Tom Cruise has been in. He also help produce the movie. I would give this movie 5 stars. There is also some great action shots in Pittsburgh PA.

This is a 2012 American thriller written and directed by Christopher McQuarrie, based on Lee Child's 2005 novel "One Shot."
The plot is somewhat too complicated for me to understand.
While watching the film, I was at loss what's going on at times.
Although the law has its limits, even Jack Reacher is not perfect at all.
I really don't understand how come James Barr jotted down: Get Jack Reacher.
I wouldn't do that in the first place.
Well, it's only a movie.

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.

Yet Another Tom Cruise Vehicle, and not much point otherwise.

Decent action thriller with some gritty psychological drama. I'd choose this over some mindless Bugs Bunny action hero CGI movie.

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.

Jack Reacher (Tom Cruise) former Major in the US army, through out his careeer Reacher did many arrests, and warned those who got away with crimes, if I hear about anything you did-I will find you and I will prove you did this crime again! However, in this story, it showed that the man was innocent, and though he is innocent, Reacher goes on to prove how the crime was perpetrated and shows what the real crime is and how those around him are being played for fools by someone who thinks himself superior-Reachers, know ability is for understanding many languages, and what their meanings are-Although aged, in years, Reacher is physically fit, for the task at hand!
