Usually McQuarrie keeps things light, letting us enjoy the fantasy of one man defending himself against five enemies with nothing but his fists.

Christopher McQuarrie's Jack Reacher is that rare blend of hard-hitting action and smooth-talking dialogue that makes for an entertaining film.

McQuarrie deftly intermixes observations on human nature - aware that in life, as in all great mysteries, people are not so easily described as "killer" and "victim." Part of why you root for Jack Reacher is his empathy for these foibles and follies.

A violent adaptation of the bestselling novels about an Iraq War veteran turned vigilante investigator.

...a better-than-average modern-day thriller that hopefully marks the start of a promising new series.

Cruise may be getting older, but he's still the best action star in Hollywood. "Jack Reacher" is typical of the kind of smart choices he's making these days. We could really use more films like this one.

'Jack Reacher' is a lot smarter than you've been led to believe by the ads.

There is a dogged leanness to Reacher's pursuit that lifts his adventures from the generic rut ...

Another notch on Tom Cruise's action hero belt and demonstrates why he is still one the most bankable action men in Hollywood

January 20, 2013

This is solid, enjoyable, formula-driven stuff designed to self-replicate into a film series, nothing more - and there's nothing wrong with that.

So long as you accept that the twain will never meet between the film and book versions of Jack Reacher, you should be able to enjoy each exclusively if not necessarily as a compliment to one another.

(Cruise)... is assisted by a fine supporting cast that includes, besides Pike, Jenkins and Herzog, David Owelolo, Jai Courtney and Cruise's old buddy, the great Robert Duvall who, at age 81, continues to amaze.

Unless you cast Yao Ming as Bilbo Baggins, what bearing does height have on a characterisation? Thank Christ that Cruise has an unwavering sense of self, as Jack Reacher is old school action dynamite.

Ultimately, the film rises and falls on Cruise's aggressively magnetic performance.

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.

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.
