The movie begins with a bunch of people being assassinated in public. Believe me, the killer does not discriminate. The police are called to this horrific scene for the body count. This is where this movie becomes interesting, at least for the forensic technologists out there. The word “framed” comes to mind. www.youtube.com/jackreacher
As the evidence is collected and analyzed, everyone on the police force believes that they have another psycho sniper on their hands. Bit by bit, a plot forms but is it the right one? A suspect profile begins to form for the police department and he is taken into custody. As the interrogation begins, the detective attempts to persuade the perpetrator to confess. He tells the perpetrator that the district attorney will spare his life if he will just confess to the murders and save the state a long and costly trial. The interlocutory witness begins to take the 5th amendment. He writes a name down on the a sheet of paper for the detective. The name is Jack Reacher. At first, the police detective is puzzled until Reacher’s background is pulled. The detective speaks with the district attorney about the suspect’s request. The detective tells the district attorney that Jack Reacher is basically a ghost. He briefs the district attorney about Jack Reacher’s police background and that he believes that he will be hard to find for questioning. Little did they know that Jack Reacher was already coming to see them. He had already seen the news about the military vet being arrested for the murders of all of those people. He and the military vet had quite a history and the vet had already been warned a long time ago about ever committing a crime again!www.jackreacher.com
Jack Reacher is one of the best military investigators in the country. He is very thorough in his work, provides detailed examinations of all of the evidence and very, very lethal with his hands and feet. The military vet knows exactly what kind of investigator Jack Reacher is. This is the specific reason why he had asked for him during his interrogation with the detective and the district attorney.
When Jack Reacher arrives in town, he visits the military vet in the hospital. He is not happy that the vet has been brutalized during his brief stay at the local jail. The vet is now in a coma and unable to communicate with Jack Reacher and his legal counsel. He asks the district attorney and the police detective if he can examine the evidence. They tell him no. The military vet’s legal counsel arrives just as Jack Reacher is about to leave. He can instantly tell that there is definitely a conflict with her and the district attorney, naturally right. They are father and daughter.
The military vet’s counsel persuades Jack Reacher to help her with the case. Jack knows something isn’t right but he just can not put his finger on it just yet. Bit by bit, piece by piece, the evidence portrays a new illegal photograph for someone else’s motive. The question now is if Jack Reacher and the military vet’s legal counsel can pinpoint the actual killer in time to save their own lives…
