With Tom Cruise as one of the producer, the show Jack Reacher is a movie that you expect to see Tom Cruise a lot. LOL.
Jack Reacher is a government military police who disappeared from the face of the earth after he decided to stop serving the government after a collection of honorary titles and badges in servitude of the country.
James Barr was a suspect in a crime he might have committed killing in cold blood 5 seemingly random people. The case was taken up by a detective Emerson who arrested James Barr since the evidence collected seems to point to him. During the interrogation while James Barr was in the police custody, James Barr asked for Jack Reacher. That's when the justice system took notice of Jack Reacher.
James Barr's case was represented by the District Attorney's daughter, Helen, in a seemingly hopeless case. When in a discussion between the District Attorney and Emerson about Jack Reacher, Jack Reacher showed up on his own.
Reacher related on the incident of how James Barr, a highly trained military sniper had never got the chance to fire his sniper gun when they decommissioned him from a mission in Baghdad and so James Barr had the urge to kill. So before he was sent back to home soil, James Barr fired his rifle on a few men in the streets of Baghdad. Coincidentally, the people that James Barr shot were those who took advantage of the spoils of war and went on a rape rally. Due to this finding, James Barr was pardoned for his actions but Reacher vowed that he will return to bring him to justice should he ever do such a thing again.
This show no doubt may have a predictable outcome, but the linking of the evidence and the uncover of truth makes it intriguing. Although the comedy part may be dry and not quite an action film, yet it still quite an enjoyable movie. I rate this show 4 stars out of 5.
