In an innocent heartland city, five are shot dead by an expert sniper. The police quickly identify and arrest the culprit, and build a slam-dunk case. But instead of confessing, the accused man writes the words, "Get Jack Reacher." Reacher himself sees the news report and turns up in the city. The defense is immensely relieved, but Reacher has come to bury the guy. Shocked at the accused's request, Reacher sets out to confirm for himself the absolute certainty of the man's guilt, but comes up with more than he bargained for.Written by
Reacher introduced himself as Aaron Ward, and it's obvious that Cash recognizes the name of the 1925 Yankees' second baseman (who really was Aaron Ward). Cash pauses and says the name to confirm. Cash says, "Play ball"! after Reacher is allowed his practice shot, so now the real shooting can take place. That reference to baseball is a tip-off to Reacher that his cover has been blown, even before he takes his excellent shots to reveal who he is. See more »
After police finds Alexia Fast's character body beside a dump, there is a close shot at her pulsating throat artery which mistakenly reveals that she's still alive although her character is dead in this scene. See more »
It's life or death now, James. By that, I mean you're doing one or the other up in Rockview. This here is District Attorney Rodin. Want to know what he's wondering? Whether you're gonna walk like a man or cry like a pussy on your way to the death house. See, the D.A. likes the needle, whereas me, I like to see a man like you live a long life - with all your teeth knocked out. Passed around till a brother can't tell your fart from a yawn.

In the UK the BBFC originally decided to give the film a '15' rating. Paramount, desiring the '12A' rating, asked them to reconsider the decision. In order for the film to be given a '12A' rating the BBFC requested 2s of cuts, which Paramount subsequently accepted, to two scenes; One cut takes place where Sandy is suffocated near to her apartment and the other when a henchman is hit over the head with a rock in the quarry. The DVD and Blu-ray versions are uncut and rated '15'. See more »
I dislike Tom Cruise in general, so I was reluctant to see this movie. I was so worried it would be another asinine Misson Impossible movie. I'm so glad my wife pushed me to see it, as it was terrific. None of the super slo-mo CGI Matrix-type bullsh*t, just a Dirty Harry style movie with a great story and great bad guys and great fights. I don't believe there is any CGI in this movie at all! Amazing! Very old school, very surprising, very well done. I loved it and haven't seen a movie of this type that I enjoyed in a long, long time. I loved the way it ended... Fairly easy to see through the plot and figure out what is going on, but still very enjoyable. This is a MUST see for anyone who loved the Dirty Harry movies, or ones similar. Minimal fluff, no stupid romance, a believable plot and a good car chase. And bad guys killed the way they should be. Fantastic!
