This brash action yarn finds military cop-gone-maverick Jack Reacher (Tom Cruise) teaming up with a hotshot lawyer (Rosamund Pike) after a sniper guns down five random victims. The police are convinced they have the culprit in custody, but Reacher suspects a cover-up and leaves a trail of destruction in his wake trying to get to the truth. Writer/director Christopher McQuarrie (whose screenplay for
The Usual Suspects
won him an Oscar) piles on the shoot-'em-up clichés and corny dialogue, which might incur the wrath of fans of source writer Lee Child's darker, more menacing Reacher novels. Cruise's steely-eyed and straight-faced portrayal of the hero borders on self-parody, and there's more than a hint of panto villain about Werner Herzog's shady Russian crime lord, resulting in a workmanlike caper that makes for an underwhelming start to a potential franchise.
A former army sniper is arrested following a random shooting that leaves five people dead, but protests his innocence. An elusive former military police investigator is called in to examine the case, and becomes convinced a conspiracy is at work. Action thriller based on Lee Child's series of novels, starring Tom Cruise, Rosamund Pike, Werner Herzog and Robert Duvall.
