Shaun, read the books - brilliant and one shot, which the film is based on, is nothing like the film. They left so much out it's ridiculous! So much about the character himself let alone the story.
Lee child, the author, said he was happy that the screen version wasn't 100% in character representation, but the person they should have gone with for screen Reacher is Ray Stevenson, he would have portrayed Reacher far better in both depicted stature and character.
Dermo, shut up really just shut up for once, how your tiny little mind thinks that Reacher is emulating a few good men I don't know, really don't. There are no comparisons blah blah between those 2 movies. Go back to the sandbox and be quiet there's a good nutjob!
