I went to this movie yesterday with low expectations, but the fact that Cruise is shorter than the Reacher in the books didn't really hurt the movie. I thought he captured the essence of the character very well, and even though it's been a couple years since I read the book, it seems like they were fairly faithful. More so than the terrible job they did with Shooter a few years back.

It's not an action movie; it's more like a private detective movie with some occasional acting. The process of solving the crime is intriguing and Reacher sleuths some stuff out in very clever ways. The only thing that was really awkward was when Cruise and Rosamund Pike were in the office with the big windows discussing crucial aspects of the crime. It's an intense scene, but while the crucial dialog is being spoken, her boobs were exploding out of her blouse. I love boobies as much any man except maybe for Al Bundy, but this was distracting in a way that did not serve the plot.

Anyway, I thought overall, it was well done.
