Jack Reacher is a former military police officer who with the ability to make himself untraceable; i.e. it's only possible to find him when he chooses to be found. However, he shows himself readily when he is recruited to investigate a quadruple murder when the suspect they rope in specifically requests him to be involved. The suspect is James Barr, a former sniper who once got away with shooting four people in a similar crime; a man who Reacher insisted he would kill should an incident like this ever occur again. Initially, he is determined to prove this guy's guilt, however as he delves deeper into the investigation he starts to believe the evidence shown to him by defense lawyer Helen Rodin points to his innocence and finally starts to see that there is a different perpetrator who deliberately set Barr up. Reacher is determined to find out the truth no matter how many laws he breaks on the way; though when Rodin is kidnapped by a cohort of the real killer after they get too close to the truth, the stakes are increased no matter how much Reacher tries to insist he has nothing to lose.
This gritty crime thriller is based on the 2005 novel 'One Shot' by Lee Child and has been entirely filmed in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. With a first class director and writer, Christopher McQuarrie ('The Usual Suspects', 'Valkyrie', 'The Tourist'), Jack Reacher looks definitely set to become a huge hit when it hits movie theaters on December 26th 2012.
