    Better than expected, very enjoyable action with a bit of thought as well. It works well and entertains plenty.
    Some things were incomprehensibly stupid, spoiler

    We get the complete spiel in the beginning, explaining who JR is and what he's done, yet some of the things he does feels completely out-of-character. Maybe I need to read the books... but this is a movie. The very first JR movie none the less! It should not need its viewers to study the books before viewing.

    After a sniper takes out 5 victims, Jack Reacher, a former army man and an ace investigator, arrives at the scene to work on the case and expose the actual criminals and their motives.

    One James Barr is set-up and taken into police custody and Jack, along with lawyer Helen, goes about collecting the required data and evidence to nab the perpetrators.

    A mighty interesting watch thanks to the intelligence in the investigation process and of course the presence of the perennially charming Tom Cruise and the sexy,beautiful Rosamund Pike.

    But Tom appeared too goody and decent to pass off as this badass army man who can win a brawl even when outnumbered and outmatched physically. Jason Statham would have been the best fit for this role.

    While Jack Reacher stays within a standard range for a thriller (giving it a bit of a potboiler feel), it is nonetheless surprisingly compelling to watch and has a great script. There are a few over-the-top one liners and moments that border on melodrama, but overall, the film had me gripped from the start.
