Six shots, five dead. One heartland city thrown into a state of terror. But within hours the cops have it solved: a slam-dunk case. Except for one thing. The accused man says: You got the wrong guy. Then he says: Get Reacher for me.
And sure enough, ex–military investigator Jack Reacher is coming. He knows this shooter—a trained military sniper who never should have missed a shot. Reacher is certain something is not right—and soon the slam-dunk case explodes.
Now Reacher is teamed with a beautiful young defense lawyer, moving closer to the unseen enemy who is pulling the strings. Reacher knows that no two opponents are created equal. This one has come to the heartland from his own kind of hell. And Reacher knows that the only way to take him down is to match his ruthlessness and cunning—and then beat him shot for shot.
This movie is witty and features an interesting plot but the language and violence crosses our acceptable levels of family-friendly viewing.
A man accused of murder asks for Jack Reacher (Tom Cruise), an ex-military investigator. Reacher winds up working with a beautiful defense lawyer and the case becomes more and more interesting with some unusual twists and turns. Unfortunately, due to the above mentioned language and violence issues, we are unable to award this one our Dove Seal.
