An action-packed movie that is thoroughly enjoyable! Tom Cruise stars as Jack Reacher an ex-military agent hired by a do-good lawyer (Rosamund Pike) to investigate the a multiple-murder that her client is accused of.
I was a little dubious at first as so often I am finding military-type action movies to be disappointing, but this one was by no means a let-down.
Packed with a few twists, robust characters, a few comedic moments, several great fist fights (that are not gory ladies) and a good-old-fashioned car chase that actually is fun to watch, this movie kept me entertained from start to finish.
Tom Cruise and Rosamund Pike have a great banter and sexual tension through-out the movie and we have the pleasure of Robert Duvall joining in his usual, off-centre, tough guy; also a thoroughly fun character.
This is an entertaining one to watch alone or as a couple. Grab that glass of wine and get ready for action, adventure and fun!
