An imposing man with tree trunks for biceps emerges from a bus carrying little but the passport in his pocket and the clothes on his back. His appearance makes waves in the small town of Margrave, Georgia, especially after the place is rocked with a series of gruesome murders. The man is the untethered ex-military police officer/current aspiring wanderer Jack Reacher, the protagonist and namesake of Reacher.
An Amazon Prime Video original, Reacher closely adapts British author Lee Child’s 1997 novel “Killing Floor.” It’s the book series’ second onscreen debut: the first were the bruising but loosely-adapted Tom Cruise blockbusters Jack Reacher and Jack Reacher: Never Go Back, released in 2012 and 2016.
Alan Ritchson (of Smallville, The Hunger Games fame) plays the titular role. He teams up with Oscar Finlay (Malcolm Goodwin) and Roscoe Conklin (Willa Fitzgerald) from the local sheriff’s department after they wrongfully arrest him and let him go. Together, they have to find the killer of the seven people who have died since Reacher got to town. Reacher soon finds himself entangled in a conspiracy with corrupt cops and dirty politicians that takes a deadly turn to his past.
