Jack ReacherPerhaps the busiest actor in Hollywood, Tom Cruise (Collateral) got off his couch to produce and star in thriller Jack Reacher.

Based on the ninth novel in the series by author Lee Child, the action movie tells the story of the investigation of five murders by an expert sniper.

The crimes are blamed on former military sniper Barr (Joseph Sikora, Safe), but his lawyer (Rosamund Pike, Barney’s Version) partners with the mysterious Jack Reacher (Cruise) to find out what really happened.

Richard Jenkins (Friends With Benefits), Robert Duvall (Phenomenon) and Werner Herzog (Cave of Forgotten Dreams) also star in the film, which was written and directed by Christopher McQuarrie (The Tourist).

PG-13-rated Jack Reacher grossed $80 million when it was in theaters, appealing more to moviegoers than critics. Seattle Times critic Moira MacDonald called is “competent but never particularly thrilling,” but New Yorker‘s Anthony Lane said, “There is a dogged leanness to Reacher’s pursuit that lifts his adventures from the generic rut.”

The DVD has just the movie, but the Blu-ray/DVD Combo pack carries these special features:

  • commentary by Cruise and McQuarrie
  • commentary by composer Joe Kraemer
  • “When the Man Comes Around”
  • “You Do Not Mess With Jack Reacher: Combat & Weapons”
  • “The Reacher Phenomenon”
  • downloadable digital copy
  • instant streaming with UltraViolet.
