Tom Cruise stars as Jack Reacher who is a “drifter” and a former Army Military Police Officer. After a highly trained sniper guns down 5 innocent bystanders in Pittsburgh, the police are able to apprehend the sniper, but when the District Attorney tells the sniper to confess or face the death sentence, the sniper asks for Jack Reacher. Reacher has a history with this sniper and Reacher wants to make sure he buries the sniper this time around. With all of the evidence collected against the sniper, you would think that the case would have been an open and shut case. However, there is anything but an open and shut case when it comes to the police force.
This film has all of the essentials in a crime/action thriller. The plot is very intriguing and will have you on the edge of your seat throughout the entire movie. Cruise sure does know his way around these types of movies. Rosamund Pike will be turning heads in almost every single scene that she is in as well. Do not expect a ton of action in this film, but the action scenes that are included will have you wide-eyed and in awe. There is also some good laughs throughout the film as well.
Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars.
