    Question jack Reacher

    I am re-reading Under the Dome and noticed there was a mention of a Jack Reacher, an Army cop, in the book. Does anyone know if it is supposed to be the same character in the movie Reacher?

    Apparently, Steve has enjoyed reading the Reacher novels, and it was a nod to Lee Child. So, kind of.

    Are we talking about the 6 foot 5 inch Reacher?

    Or the midget one portrayed in said film?

    I saw the film with a friend who'd read every single book and was really annoyed they'd cast Tom Cruise in the role. When the credits went up at the end he grudgingly admitted that he was pretty good in the role and enjoyed the film.

    Yes, it's a reference to the character from Lee Child's novel. Child, by the way, has a cameo in the movie, which I saw in-flight yesterday. I thought it was an okay action film. I've not read any of the books so I can't judge it as an adaptation. The one scene I really disliked was the one where


    Reacher finally faces off against the sniper in the rain, has him disarmed and dead to rights, and then THROWS DOWN HIS GUN to give the other guy a chance to beat him. Given that Reacher later has no compunction about shooting the unarmed Zec, it made no sense to me whatsoever.


    I was a little disappointed by Rosamund Pike, too. Having seen her perform so well in other movies, I found her lacking credibility a lot of the time.
