Effortlessly, the protagonist takes down his enemies empty-handedly though in the end he gets misunderstood by the police.

Reacher is a former military homicide investigator.

The action movie, which is directed by Christopher McQuarrie, is based on Lee Child's bestselling novel of the same name.

He told Entertainment Weekly, "He's very solitary, but he can't walk away from a situation that needs to be made right. His own sense of right and wrong tie into that situation and he can't leave until it's been resolved. That's his Achilles heels."

Also starring , , , Alexia Fast, and , "Jack Reacher" is scheduled for a December 21 release in cinemas across the United States.
