Jack Reacher must uncover the truth behind a major government conspiracy in order to clear his name. On the run as a fugitive from the law, Reacher uncovers a potential secret from his past that could change his life forever.
Marcus Luttrell and his team set out on a mission to capture or kill notorious Taliban leader Ahmad Shah, in late June 2005. Marcus and his team are left to fight for their lives in one of the most valiant efforts of modern warfare.
Navy S.E.A.L. sniper Chris Kyle's pinpoint accuracy saves countless lives on the battlefield and turns him into a legend. Back home to his wife and kids after four tours of duty, however, Chris finds that it is the war he can't leave behind.
Christian Wolff is a math savant with more affinity for numbers than people. Behind the cover of a small-town CPA office, he works as a freelance accountant for some of the world's most dangerous criminal organizations. With the Treasury Department's Crime Enforcement Division, run by Ray King, starting to close in, Christian takes on a legitimate client: a state-of-the-art robotics company where an accounting clerk has discovered a discrepancy involving millions of dollars. But as Christian uncooks the books and gets closer to the truth, it is the body count that starts to rise. Written by
SPLOILER. Lemar wants to take Living Robotics public. After Chris discovers that more than $61 million has been embezzled from the company, Lamar knows this revelation would make taking the company public nearly impossible. He decides to kill everyone who has knowledge of the embezzlement, including his sister Rita, his friend and company Chief Finacial Officer Ed Chilton, junior in-house accountant Dana Cummings, and outside accountant Cristian Wolff. Christian's connection would be made by his compensation check. All of these murders, occurring over a brief period of time, makes taking the company public impossible. Given that all victims have close ties to Living Robotics and three are accountants, authorities will most certainly have the company's books and records audited by a team of highly experienced forensic accountants. They will most certainly discover the embezzlement scheme. Moreover, Lamar is assuming that the four victims are the only ones who have knowledge of the embezzlement scheme. That is highly unlikely. Rita may have consulted the company's legal department or an outside law firm. Dana could have shared the scheme with her direct supervisor, colleagues, family and friends. Ed Chilton may have discussed the matter with his wife and/or consulted an attorney. Christian could have discussed the matter with his secretary. See more »
This film connected with me on so many levels. It delivered in ways I was not expecting. I was laughing, cheering, crying, and ultimately walked out of that theater feeling more than satisfied. I want to go see it again. Something that is great about this film is that there are things you will pick up on more clearly through a second viewing, but it is not required to fully enjoy the film. Like I said in my title, I can say without a shadow of doubt that this film is better than any other film released this year. However, I will follow that by saying I have yet to see "Hell or High Water". So it's more like 99.9% sure. We will see how it holds up against the remaining anticipated releases. I do honestly believe it should be nominated come award season. This film is phenomenal and if you do not see this film before you die, you are doing yourself a disservice.
