Jack Reacher (Tom Cruise) has a vigilante approach to justice. So his initial investigation into five murders committed by a former military sniper is a bit of a witch-hunt until he discovers some deeper, unanswered questions about the crimes.

Here is additional information on sex, violence and profanity in Jack Reacher...

Violence: While depictions of blood are limited to pools surrounding the dead shooting victims, this movie pushes the limit of a PG-13 rating with repeated hand-to-hand fights (often resulting in broken bones), strikes to the groin, the use of baseball bats and other implements to inflict pain and gun use. A man trains his sights on several people including a 6-year-old child before killing five of them. A man is beaten into a comatose state and suffers severe facial and head injuries. A group of men gang up on a single man. A character talks about killing a man and distributing his body parts. A man is forced to attempt to chew off his fingers. Numerous characters are shot at close range. A character is suffocated and the body disposed of in a garbage container. Characters engage in a high-speed chase that involves crashing their cars. A character is tasered and kidnapped. A man threatens to beat another to death and “drink his blood from a boot”. A character is hit in the head with a rock. Characters use a knife during a fight. A man verbally abuses a woman on a bus.

Sexual Content: A woman wearing only a thong is shown from the backside. A man’s bare chest is shown. A girl accuses a man of calling her a whore and attempts to lure him into a fight. Some sexual dialogue follows. A woman mistakenly believes a man is inviting her to bed. A professional woman wears a low cut shirt.

Language: The script contains frequent mild profanities and terms of Deity along with some crude terms, sexual comments and one strong sexual expletive.

Alcohol / Drug Use: Characters are shown with drinks in a bar setting. A woman, sitting beside of table of drug paraphernalia, appears to be in a drug-induced state. Comments are made about a man who makes illegal drugs. A woman drinks a beer.
