Jack Reacher
Available on Channel 4, Paramount+
Tom Cruise steps confidently into the formidable shoes of author Lee Child's military cop-turned-drifter who becomes part of the investigation when a former army sniper takes the rap for gunning down five innocent people. But as defence lawyer Rosamund Pike soon discovers, asking for Reacher's help is asking for trouble. Directed and adapted from the ninth Reacher novel One Shot by Oscar-winning writer Christopher McQuarrie (The Usual Suspects), the first movie outing for Child's vigilante hero is much like the man himself: cool, compelling and ruthlessly efficient. Fans of bold casting get the added bonus of maverick filmmaker Werner Herzog as the villain.
