'Jack Reacher' Blu-ray review


Jack Reacher
Blu-ray $39.99 / DVD $29.99 (Paramount Home Media)

The lone-wolf crime fighter of author Lee Child’s popular fictional book series comes to life on the screen for the first time as Tom Cruise charges into the title role, unraveling a murder mystery tied to an even bigger conspiracy. With Robert Duvall, Richard Jenkins and Werner Herzog rounding out the cast, it’s an action-packed ride with pulverizing fistfights, gear-jamming chase scenes and a game of wits that harkens back more to “old-school” cop films of the ’70s than modern-day, special-effect-driven explosion fests. Special features include commentary by Cruise and the director, a mini-documentary on the movie’s adaptation of the book, and a look at the intense training and stunt choreography behind the fight sequences.
