Storyline:

In an innocent heartland city, five are shot dead by an expert sniper. The police quickly identify and arrest the culprit, and build a slam-dunk case. But the accused man claims he’s innocent and says “Get Jack Reacher.” Reacher himself sees the news report and turns up in the city. The defense is immensely relieved, but Reacher has come to bury the guy. Shocked at the accused’s request, Reacher sets out to confirm for himself the absolute certainty of the man’s guilt, but comes up with more than he bargained for.

  • “Jack Reacher” is a great movie with a good story line, a terrific cast and plenty of action and even some funny scenes. Tom Cruise makes this movie exciting to watch, he’s really at his best in this role, wonderful performance! I really enjoyed it a lot, because of him and the very good plot! It’s not just an action film but also a great mystery and “who-done-it” suspense. I highly recommend it!

  • Jack Reacher is a swift and slickly made thriller. It features Tom Cruise in the title role as a former U.S. military officer who turns vigilant and takes matters into his own hands (he doesn’t care about justice, he cares about what’s right).

    The film is shot by the screenwriter of The Usual Suspects (Christopher McQuarrie) and it has effectively coarse action scenes in small doses. Watch for a restless, breathtaking car chase through the streets of Pittsburgh, a villain who will creep you out big time (interesting casting choice in director Werner Herzog), and a extended cameo by Oscar winner Robert Duvall (if you dug Days of Thunder, you might cherish the image of him and Cruise in the same scene).

    Overall, Jack Reacher is an entertaining yarn that might have been overlooked during Christmas season, circa 2012. It’s a solid vehicle (get it) with style to burn.

    Rating: 3 out of 4 stars
