Jack Reacher Reviews

John Beifuss
Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

A less robotic lead would have been appreciated, but McQuarrie has delivered an efficient action-crime film with Reacher as the sort of unstoppable, ultracompetent reluctant hero once played on the B-movie circuit by Chuck Norris.

Movie Talk

Rosamund Pike's underwritten role mostly requires her to goggle at Reacher's deductive genius and swoon at his pecs, but even if Jack Reacher won't leave nonpartisan viewers weak at the knees it still delivers straightforward genre thrills.

As the melodrama unfolds, Jack Reacher might occasionally feel like a minor work in Tom Cruise's filmography; hindsight may reveal it to be one of his most accomplished and defining characterisations.

If Cruise's fantasy superhero garners as many staunch fans ... we may be witnessing the birth of a new franchise.

He may not look the way Lee Child described him in his books, but for movie fans Tom Cruise is Jack Reacher.

Daily Telegraph

Jack Reacher tips constantly into self-parody and doesn't know how to signal it, like someone trying to wink at you without the benefit of eyelids.

Observer [UK]

[Cruise] seems more overreacher than Reacher, while the dependable Jenkins and the seductive Pike drift through the action with nothing to get a purchase on.

Laramie Movie Scope

The acting is very strong in this film and the action scenes are handled well. The story is fairly standard, but the characters are not, particularly Reacher, who is very mysterious and interesting.

I know I'm not the only one who appreciates a lack of ambiguity when watching a dude get his testicles crushed.

A workmanlike caper that makes for an underwhelming start to a potential franchise.

Cruise delivers on the action front and the script from Usual Suspects writer Chris McQuarrie, who is also on directing duty, gives proceedings just the right level of knowing humour.

It delivers some refreshingly dark down-to-earth crime action.

Child's more open-minded readers and those unfamiliar with his ex-military hero can rest assured that Cruise's Reacher is a character of considerable screen substance.

Cruise has created a protagonist that is full of personality. He has a sharp sense of humour (evidenced in so many scenes) and a smart, calculating mind.
