Called in to assist with a recent mass shooting case, Jack Reacher (Tom Cruise) may be in over his head this time. In what seems to be a random attack, a trained sniper has shot and killed five civilians. None of the victims had any connection to one another.
One man is in custody; an ex-military sniper named James Barr (Joseph Sikora) who knew Reacher back when they were both in the military. All the evidence points to Barr being the perpetrator of the attack. However, Reacher has his doubts and decides to help Barr’s defense attorney (Rosamund Pike) to try and clear his name. Consequently, the deeper that Reacher digs into the case, the more evidence turns up proving that Barr wasn’t the sniper behind the attack.
