Jack Reacher

Tom Cruise dispenses a very special brand of brute justice -- fights, shootouts and car chases -- as the legendary anti-hero "Jack Reacher," based on the popular book series by bestselling author Lee Child, and adapted for the screen and directed by Christopher McQuarrie. When a gunman takes five lives with six shots, all evidence points to the suspect in custody. On interrogation, the suspect offers up a single note: "Get Jack Reacher!" So begins an extraordinary chase for the truth, pitting Jack Reacher against an unexpected enemy, with a skill for violence and a secret to keep.
