Jack Reacher Movie Review

Ratings:3/5 Review By: Renuka VyavahareSite:Times Of India (TOI)

The film is a cinematic adaptation of Lee Child’s 2005 novel One Shot. Jack Reacher is Child’s successful fictional character from his mystery/thriller novels. Action scenes look authentic. There is no loud background score. The highlight is one of the suspenseful car chase sequences, where Reacher is chasing the bad guys while being chased by the cops. It’s been shot brilliantly. The film is more of a cerebral drama than a fast-paced, modern action flick. The suspense is satisfying and so is Cruise’s ‘true to character’ performance. A lot depends on whether you like Jack Reacher, the pragmatic investigator.

Though the timing of the release of ‘Jack Reacher’ is a bit skewed this Christmas season, this mystery thriller is surprisingly a decent whodunit with a moral code. The screenplay is verbose and exposition-heavy in the first half before offering a degree of satisfaction towards the end. The conspiracy at the root of it all turns out to be rather humdrum and the plot delivers no surprising revelations. There are moments of good, dry humour. The film drags in the beginning and in the end, but the rest of the time, it is engaging enough.

Overall, as a movie, it isn’t all that bad. Jack Reacher reminded me of Jason Bourne in bits and pieces (not anywhere near as cool as Bourne, but will suffice). The background score was quite neatly done. Tom Cruise acted stupendously and did complete justice to the role (barring his height of course). Helen (Rosamund Pike) who played the shooter’s defense attorney did a good job as well. Her character was charming yet finicky. On the whole, director Christopher McQuarrie has done a pretty decent job of bringing Jack Reacher to life. Verdict: A really cool protagonist and a decent suspense thriller. Go for it.

Jack Reacher” lumbers through a series of beatings, shootings and bludgeonings on its way to a climactic, not terribly surprising showdown. There is a pretty good car chase and a lot of very bad dialogue. Apart from the car chase, the only real fun in “Jack Reacher” comes from Mr. Herzog and Robert Duvall, called in near the end for some marvelously gratuitous scenery chewing as a gruff former Marine. They enliven the movie’s atmosphere of weary brutality for a few moments, but they also call attention to the dullness of their dramatic surroundings.

“Jack Reacher,” which Christopher McQuarrie directed from his adaptation of a Lee Child crime novel, is not just another dumb thriller. It’s almost peerlessly self-important, weirdly incoherent and eerily smarmy. It’s also mysteriously inept, considering that Tom Cruise plays the title role, a mythical veteran of Iraq who goes from city to city righting wrongs.
