Is Jack Reacher On Netflix, Hulu Or Prime? Where To Watch Online

Where can Jack Reacher be found online and is it available on platforms like Netflix, Hulu or Prime? Tom Cruise seems to have found his creative soulmate in writer/director Christopher McQuarrie. The pair first worked together on 2008 war drama Valkyrie, and McQuarrie was later brought onboard Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol to fix numerous story problems that crept up during filming. The pair have essentially been inseparable ever since, which includes McQuarrie working on the screenplays for Live Die Repeat, 2017's The Mummy and the forthcoming sequel Top Gun: Maverick.

Tom Cruise later handed over the keys to his most famous franchise to his frequent collaborator with Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation, which McQuarrie directed. Cruise also broke the series rule of bringing on a new filmmaker for each entry by bringing McQuarrie back for Mission: Impossible - Fallout. This turned out to be a very wise choice as this sixth movie became the highest-grossing to date, in addition to receiving great reviews. The duo will unite once again for Mission: Impossible 7 & 8.

Their first collaboration with Christopher McQuarrie as director was on Jack Reacher, however. This was an adaptation of Lee Child's thriller novel One Shot, which was actually the ninth to feature the author's iconic character. There was famously a backlash towards the casting of Cruise in the title role since the Reacher described in the books is way closer to Dolph Lundgren in size and appearance; Childs deflected this critique at the time but now seems to agree with it. For those looking to check out 2012's Jack Reacher, the film is currently available to stream, rent or buy in the U.S.

Hulu subscribers are in luck, as they now boast Jack Reacher as part of their line-up. Hulu isn't the only U.S. option though, as the recently debuted Paramount+ also currently streams Jack Reacher. The film can also be found on the Epix streaming service, and can be rented from $2.99 or purchased from $7.99 on Amazon, iTunes, Google Play, YouTube, Vudu or Redbox. For anyone curious enough to check out the inferior 2016 sequel Jack Reacher: Never Go Back - which was directed by Edward Zwick instead of Christopher McQuarrie - that film isn't currently available on any streaming services but can be rented or purchased from the same services applicable to its predecessor, and for the same price.

Jack Reacher: Never Go Back was both a critical and commercial letdown, meaning Cruise won't be returning for a third movie. Instead, Jack Reacher is being rebooted for a series at Amazon, with Alan Ritchson taking over the lead role. Ritchson plays Hank Hall/Hawk on the DC show Titans, and also played Raphael in the recent live-action Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movies. Ritchson stands 6'2", and is much closer to Reacher's appearance in Childs' books, which will likely please fans of the franchise.
