The Law Has Limits. He Does Not.
In an innocent heartland city, five are shot dead by an expert sniper. The police quickly identify and arrest the culprit, and build a slam-dunk case. But the accused man claims he's innocent and says "Get Jack Reacher." Reacher himself sees the news report and turns up in the city. The defense is immensely relieved, but Reacher has come to bury the guy. Shocked at the accused's request, Reacher sets out to confirm for himself the absolute certainty of the man's guilt, but comes up with more than he bargained for.

Great thriller with interesting detective work.
Not the strongest of Tom Cruise movies but still worth your time.
The last battle scene was not the most captivating.
The movie directly gets into the story making you think from the start.

This movie is so badass. CanNOT wait for the sequel. I don't understand the indifference people have for this movie and guess what, I'm not sweatin' it. Cruise is a great Reacher and I am counting the days until October 21st. It's 60. 60 days.

There was a time—let's call it "The 80s"—when action movies didn't need CGI cheats, shaky-cam and ADD-editing to entertain us. They also didn't have to destroy ten city blocks, have a "clever" hook or feel the need to tack on a social message to justify their carnage. No, all they needed was a reason for some good old steak and potatoes action and a star to anchor it all. 2012's Jack Reacher has these qualities in spades.

Maybe this won't appeal to the younger generation who need to have their senses constantly bombarded, but for the rest of us, Jack Reacher is a solid bit of retro-refreshment.
