Review: Jack Reacher

Release Date:  December 21, 2012
Running Time: 130 minutes
Starring: Tom Cruise, Rosamund Pike, Richard Jenkins
Who to see it with: Someone who likes Tom Cruise movies


Tom Cruise is a really good actor and I generally like his movies.  But, this film was almost so bad it was good, yet it didn't quite make it over that ledge.  It's an interesting investigation / action movie that is entertaining enough, but the amount of bad lines and overall corny-ness hurt the overall experience.  I liked the story and the fight scenes are definitely well done.  The fights had a batman-esque aspect to them; kind of a gritty, more realistic type of fighting.  If you like Tom Cruise or are hoping for a little more investigation in your action movies, you will probably see it.  But for everyone else, I would 

Rent it.
