I too was surprised that I liked the movie - but not Cruise. A good actor makes you forget it is he playing the part. I saw Cruise the entire time. If a new "Reacher" movie is made they should try casting James Caviezel from TV's "Person of Interest". We don't miss an episode!

I was surprised I liked this movie -- and Cruise -- much more than I thought I would. Even so, the review hits on a big problem with the film: Predictability. I wonder why the formula seems invisible on the page, but so OBVIOUS on the screen? Nonetheless, it was fun to root for the good guy and see the bad get their comeuppance.

Your review of One Shot confirms everything I ever suspected about this movie, most notably Tom Cruise as Jack Reacher. Why was Lee Child so keen on this pick?
