Jack Reacher Movie - Review
Plot : Movie opens with a gunman slaughtering five citizens on the river shore. The police investigates the case, after some random evidences they lead them to James Barr (Joseph Sikora) who was arrested and then taken to the custody. Meanwhile on the interrogation James Barr asks the attorneys to get Jack Reacher. Jack Reacher (Tom Cruise) arrives into the scene and Barr's defense attorney Helen Rodin (Rosamund Pike) asks Reacher to help her out in investigating the case. Reacher first refuses and laters accepts her request. The other part continues with Reacher & Helen investigating the victim's families which leads them to serious action by the local mobs and also by Zec (Werner Herzog) from the Soviet Gulags.
Cast & Crew : Tom Cruise plays the lead as a one-man vigilante force who once worked in the army, he usually impresses with his action sequences but this role doesnt have much to deal with. McQuarrie’s script which is inspired from such a passionate fan base makes you turn off at certain scenes and will not make a mark when compared to the original novel.
Final Verdict : This aint any full packed action movie but this comes under a decent thriller dealt with some intelligent screenplay and some kickass action sequences. Go with some low expectations this flick will never disappoint you. Finally, patience needed when you're watching.
My Rating - 3/5
