American Profile

An often outlandish, overly talky crime-procedural drama that seems like a vanity project its marquee star must have wanted to do with his director buddy while waiting for their next "Mission Impossible" collaboration.

Metro Times (Detroit, MI)

Predictable plot twists and chase scenes ensue in a stylish but otherwise old-school thriller. But the events of last week encourage deeper reflection on what we seek from the violence that is so casually depicted in today's movies.

A clumsily condensed mystery/thriller novel made into a movie that offers little more than every other clumsily condensed mystery/thriller novel made into a movie.

Cruise does his best to keep a straight face and make himself halfway believable as a brainy roughhouser - think of a less intense Jason Bourne - but ridiculous plotting undermines his efforts.

There's no room for Reacher in modern cinema's action crowd.

Back Stage

Tom Cruise bulks up as best as he can, and he has playful sexual chemistry with Rosamund Pike, but "Jack Reacher" ultimately proves too formulaic.

The dialogue is often unintentionally funny and Cruise's performance is all wrong.

The actor can do cool and calculating, it's the meaning behind it that never flickers to life. "Jack Reacher" plays like Cruise on cruise control.

Eye for Film

...merely wants us to accept Reacher wholesale as an old-fashioned avatar of Eighties maverickdom, and to recruit us to a potential franchise of Reacher's investigative overreaching.

Jack Reacher is an absurdly self-confident, sociopathically laser-focused detective-bot. That is to say, he's a hero that only Tom Cruise could love.

Film Geek Central

This film is so well-directed, that it almost fools you into thinking it's a good movie. It's not bad by any measure, but since it had a hard time figuring out just what kind of tone to have, it's not wholly successful either.

Cruise is all set to make this the start of a new action franchise and while he delivers, the rest of the film is a silly, plodding effort that never fully comes together.

Reacher is limited by a lack of originality and hampered by thematic clichés and generic action sequences.

While Jason Bourne could dogfight Reacher with his man sack squished in a vice grip and the safety left on his Sig 228 gun while smoking some serious Maui wowie reefer, "Jack Reacher" has one twist you'd never expect: its star isn't its title character.
