    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.

    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.

    Tom Cruise just has that "it". He is compulsively watchable, and elevates serviceable films like this into great entertainment. Also, the ensemble does well, and I was surprised to see Werner Herzog, in a delightfully enigmatic and chilling performance. Worth a watch. 6 years 3 months ago
