One of the most compelling heroes to step from novel to screen, Tom's Jack Reacher is a no-nonsense ex-military investigator. When a gunman takes five lives with six shots, all evidence points to the suspect in custody, who offers up a single missive: "Get Jack Reacher!" So begins an extraordinary chase for the truth, pitting Jack against an unexpected enemy with a skill for violence and a secret to keep.

Written for the screen and directed by Christopher McQuarrie, Jack Reacher also stars Rosamund Pike, Richard Jenkins, Werner Herzog, David Oyelowo and Robert Duvall.
