Jack Reacher turns up from nowhere to help the homicide cops and collaborate with the DA's daughter (Rosamund Pike). She is also a top attorney charged with defending Barr. Jack reveals that the suspect was trained as a sniper in Iraq. At the end of the movie Jack also discovers that the homicide detective also involved in this homicide.
Best part of story, including ending: Tom Cruise is my favorite action hero. So why don't I like the movie. Of course there are also a lot of action and thrilling scenes in this movie, which made this movie a block-baster hit.

Best scene in story: When the killer was preparing himself to kill some innocent people with a special target on a path alongside the stadium.

Opinion about the main character: Jack Reacher is always hard to be found. He reveals himself only when he is needed. A perfect character for a spy. That's why I like him.
