Movie Reviews

  • what could be a taut 90 minutes turns into a puffy 130, as McQuarrie attempts to pack as many characters and twists into his plot as he did for his screenplay for The Usual Suspects
    2.5 of 4 by Peter Howell [Toronto Star ]
  • the movie is asking us to ¬≠escape from fresh horror into this stale, manufactured variety
    2 of 4 by Wesley Morris [Boston Globe ]
  • the movie invites us to identify, not with innocent people, but with the assassin's power
    2 of 4 by Mick LaSalle [San Francisco Chronicle ]
  • still, McQuarrie's script never gets at the heart of a character who's already inspired such a passionate fan base
    3 of 5 by Elizabeth Weitzman [New York Daily News ]
  • Reacher is a brawny action figure whose exploits would have been a good fit for the likes of Arnold Schwarzenegger or Sylvester Stallone back in the day, but feel less fun when delegated to a leading man like Tom Cruise
    by Peter Debruge [Variety ]
  • McQuarrie walks the line perfectly, delivering a scene that is tense and devastating but never grotesque
    4 of 5 by Tom Clift [Moviedex ]
  • luckily, there are other actors to look at here, and they manage to throw off some intelligent energy when they're around
    by Stephanie Zacharek [NPR ]
  • like its namesake antihero, "Jack Reacher" has hefty challenges to overcome from the get-go
    3 of 4 by Kristin Tillotson [Minneapolis Star Tribune ]
  • Cruise might not be the 6-foot-5 rock described in the books, but he makes the title role fit him like a latex glove in a winning turn that could spawn a popular new franchise for the star
    by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter ]
  • an appealing genre piece built on a solid foundation of smartly modulated friction, blending old-fashioned fisticuffs with an engaging murder inquiry that reeks of mysterious frame-up
    by Brent Simon [Screen International ]
  • a superior thriller, with Cruise and McQuarrie slotting together like a bullet in a clip
    4 of 5 by James Mottram [Total Film ]
  • 2.5 of 5 Reviewed by Betsy Sharkey [Los Angeles Times ]
