JACK REACHER is a thriller in which an ex-military policeman who sets out to investigate whether a man who has been arrested for a series of apparently random shootings is actually guilty of the crime.

Violence

There is strong violence, including one in which a half-conscious woman being suffocated, and another in which a man is killed with two vicious blows to the head with a rock.

Scenes of more moderate violence generally occur in the context of set-piece action fights between the hero and villains. Although some heavy blows are landed, including kicks, punches and elbow blows to many parts of the body, little is shown in terms of blood or injury detail. One sequence shows a man pressing his thumb deep into his assailant's eye but this is a defensive move and lacks clear detail. Another scene shows a head-butt, resulting in a very brief spurt of blood from the nose.

Language

The single use of strong language ('f**k') is directed by a woman to her father but not in a particularly aggressive fashion. There are also uses of moderate language such as 'bitch', 'slut' and 'prick'.

There are also some undetailed drug references, including a passing verbal reference to 'cooking crystal' and sight of a 'bong', which is not seen being used.
