Huffington Post Review @ 12/20/2012 at 5:16 am

….”it’s important to assess “Jack Reacher” on its own terms, for what it is and what it isn’t. Besides being caught in some unfortunate timing, it’s also clever, well-crafted and darkly humorous, and it features one of those effortless bad-ass performances from Tom Cruise that remind us that he is indeed a movie star, first and foremost. OK, so maybe Cruise doesn’t exactly resemble the Reacher of British novelist Lee Child’s books: a 6-foot-5, 250-pound, blond behemoth. If you haven’t read them, you probably won’t care. Even if you have read them, Christopher McQuarrie’s film – the first he’s directed and written since 2000′s “The Way of the Gun” – moves so fluidly and with such confidence, it’ll suck you in from the start.”

Examiner Review @ 12/20/2012 at 6:09 am

This knowledge that the film was shot only a few blocks away from the theater got the audience even more excited for the film, so when the lights dimmed and the film’s title graced the screen, the audience erupted in applause.

Unlike many other films in its genre, “Reacher” doesn’t feel as though it’s one long, drawn-out action scene – the humorous interludes keep it light while the brilliant cinematography keeps it visually exciting at all times. McQuarrie clearly thought through every aspect of the filming process, and it shows. He uses every camera angle imaginable to keep every second of the film interesting and he even films parts of a car chase from the road looking up – a courageous and artistic move that works brilliantly.

Expertly crafted, and thoroughly suspenseful, engaging, and entertaining, “Jack Reacher” is without a doubt one of the best made action films in years. Although the opening scene certainly makes it feel as though the film is a little too realistic considering the circumstances, Cruise’s portrayal of Reacher makes the film a must-see.

Tom Cruise is Jack Reacher and Jack Reacher is a hero – he isn’t just the hero of the film, he’s the hero we wish existed.

Waiting to exhale: is he gay? I mean Rock Hudson was a hunk of the times and a fantastic actor…. If not, please somebody find him a suitable partner void of the Scientology B.S.

Cruise gets bank eitherway @ 12/20/2012 at 2:00 pm

Once McQuarrie and Granger convinced their producer he was the right star after all, Cruise refused to sign on unless he landed Lee Child’s blessing. Granger and McQuarrie met the author for dinner anticipating a lengthy discussion to explain their rationale for casting the “Top Gun” lead. “We wanted to walk him through it,” McQuarrie recalled, “but he said, ‘Look guys, it’s Tom Cruise. Why wouldn’t I want the biggest star in the world to play my character?’”

Even with “Reacher’s” bankability in question, Cruise, the filmmakers and the studio hope to create a second franchise for the “Mission: Impossible” star, who owns the rights to all 17 of Child’s Jack Reacher books.,0,4445755.story?page=2

@Cruise gets bank eitherway:

The movie will probably do very well and may very well be a good movie, but if you are a die hard fan of the series, believe me you don’t ever imagine Tom Cruise as Jack Reacher! And that is what is the major beef with the Reacher fans. As Cruise fans surely you and others can understand this? He is no Jack Reacher no matter how good the movie is. We love Jack as an iconic anti-hero and somehow Cruise falls short of the all the expectations we would have for a movie featuring Jack saving his part of the universe. So I and others won’t watch it since we don’t want to read the books and have Tom supplant our idea of exactly who Jack is and what he looks like.

@Dabu: I can respect that your a fan of the book series and have an expectation that the movie should meet the specific physical description of Jack Reacher.
And thank you for being respectful in your reply to my post; I don’t see that very often.

Sincerely concerned @ 12/21/2012 at 8:52 am

You HAVE to wonder if he and KH have even looked at each other since the divorce. …now that he is in the same town???

Jack Reacher – Domestic Total as of Dec. 21, 2012: $5,100,000 (Estimate)
Production Budget: $60 million

Paramount is expecting $12 to $15 million for the weekend, which would put the movie on track to possible match Valkyrie’s $83.1 million total

If Paramount is right then Jack Reacher will meet or possible exceed production (albeit by a small margin).

Which leaves the International release numbers to hopefully make the possibility of Jack Reacher franchise a reality.

Valkyrie’s numbers – Domestic: $83,077,833
+ Foreign: $117,198,951
= Worldwide: $200,276,784

My review – I saw Jack Reacher opening night, 5 pm showing and my experience matched the positive reviews already released by media.
(Disclaimer: I haven’t read any of the Lee Child novels)
The movie was different from the normal fast-paced, jerky screen movies that we have become used to. The fight scenes were realistic and believable. The story had enough “who done it” and “why” to last to the end. I was surprised by a few revelations in the movie (again, hadn’t read the book). The humor accentuated the movie and characters that seemed natural and not forced and the audience got it (my perception).
Finally, (for the fans of Lee Child’s novels) yes, Tom Cruise is Tom Cruise and his portrayal (IMHO) reminded of a mix between his character in Collateral and A Few Good Men – a mix crazy and moral convictions.

Holiday Box Office Numbers @ 12/22/2012 at 2:23 pm

Jack Reacher, based on Lee Child’s popular book series, earned $5.1 million to come in second and is anticipating a $15.4 million weekend. The good news: The movie earned an A- CinemaScore. Paramount and David Ellison’s Skydance Productions co-financed the $60 million film.
