Review: There was a time when I was fascinated with crime mysteries. There are few mystery stories that are good and most of it are in books. Some of those mysteries are adapted into movies but sometimes get critical reactions from purists.

When I first saw the movie trailer of Jack Reacher, I just thought it was another action movie. But after watching it, I found out that the trailer is more like a tip of the iceberg. The movie had lots of twists that you won't see coming.

As for the action sequence, it is not like Mission: Impossible. The action scenes are quite balanced with the suspense twists.  Here is how I see Jack Reacher. He is not the heroic type. But he is a man on a mission. A soldier. His mission is his priority and nothing can stop him from finishing that mission.

In conclusion, this is one of the films I recommend to watch this 2013. Jack Reacher opens in Philippine cinemas January 9, 2013 and is distributed locally by Solar Entertainment Corp.
