Books Go To The Movies: Jack Reacher

I saw Jack Reacher this weekend.  I haven't read these books yet, but I think I'm going to start.  The movie was a good blend of mystery, suspense, and action, and if it was true to the book I think I'll enjoy the series.

I am normally not a fan of Tom Cruise, but I thought he did a good job.  I remember hearing the hubbub that he doesn't physically resemble Jack, but since I didn't already have a mental picture in my mind I wasn't bothered seeing him play Reacher.

Has anyone else seen the movie?  Did you enjoy it?  For those of you who have read the books, how does the movie stack up?


  1. I'm not much of Cruise fan any more, but I've seen the trailers and been tempted to see this movie (well, not till it's on DVD). Glad to know it'll be worth the time investment.

    1. Hi Jen,

      Yeah, I'd say it's definitely worth a rental. I was pleasantly surprised.
