Hands down the best of the entire Reacher series. It it a monument of plot on nerve jangling tension. You could even play the opening just like the book. It's perfect....

...would work well as a film, thought it might be good as the first actually, could have set up his character in the van ride at the beginning, shown off his skills in the shooting contest, brought Garber in to tie up his military history, and has the twist with the mole at the end.

Is Tom Cruise still lined up to be Reacher? If so I wish he'd take it on as a producer project rather than acting project

have to say I thought "One Shot" was one of the weaker novels and was surprised at this being the choice for a film

Tom Cruise is to small, we were thinking and hoping Liam Neeson, or Dulph Lundgren, Tom is not rugged enough Jack is 6ft 5 inches how tall is Tom???

61 Hours is the only book in the series which has a sequal (of sorts) so why would you make that the second film? Unless you intend to totally re-write the end from the book or to include the important information from Worth Dying For as well.

61 hours as the follow-up? I'm sorry, but the third act relies on the fact that Reacher's height works against him in a very low-ceilinged, confined space and a great deal of the dramatic tension is derived from this. I really enjoy the books and have read them all to date but I find the casting of Tom Cruise, for all his skills, works against the point of the character of Jack Reacher, who is supposed to be, both metaphorically and literally, head and shoulders above the average man.

BIG fan of Reacher books. And for the record I have nothing against the Cruiser either. But this could go down as the biggest miscasting in the history of everything ever.

Oh and the second film should be Die Trying. With someone else...almost anyone else...playing Jack.

Never heard of these books until now. Jack Reacher is a crap name for a hero, too obvious, but I'll check out the movie. Could be good.

Well as has been well documented on many sites linked to Lee Child ,there is a wave of disatifaction with his readership at the casting of Tom Cruise.I myself are not entirely happy with this either but at the end of the day it's not the worst thing that can happen.The Cruz brings a certain level of publicity and credo to a project,love him or hate him we're talking about him and the film job done surely.
Being a traditionalist I'd love to have seen the (hopefully franchaise)from the begining easier to cast different actor's as the character ages.But if I had to decide what about 'The Visitor' the first book I read in the series and a little left field I thought for the books a pschological thriller.

One Shot is one of the weakest novels so far. Killing Floor is amazing- I recall reading it and feeling like I had been smacked in the face by a Jack Reacher punch. Other novels that got close were Wire Trip (amazing bad guy) and Echo burning. Tom Cruise is a terrible choice for this role and 61 hours cannot work with him as Reacher. tom do the right thing- step aside!

Killing Floor is still my fave of all his novels. Would like Persuader and The Visitor as movies. All of them are strong, and I'd agree that including Neagley will be a great choice.
I actually cried (REAL TEARS!) when I heard Tom was cast as the 6ft 6, 240lbs Reacher.
Tell you what Tom, when you can play football like a linebacker, we'll cast you as one !
