I just finished the book and, to be honest, it wasn't quite as good "One Shot" (the basis for the previous movie). IOW, there was a hell of a lot of tooling around in the story doing I'm-not-sure-what. Maybe "Personal" will turn out better?

The books are great! I have read almost all of them but as a movie I don't think they would be nearly as good.

He played a police desk sergeant in the first movie.

Just watched this movie while out of town. Wish I had read these reviews back in January!!
Liked the first one a lot so in spite of Sequels Suck Syndrome, I gave it a shot.

Thank God it was free because that movie was complete and total shit.

The biggest problem in translating Child's books to the silver screen is that, in the book, the most exciting part of the dialog is not really dialog, but is Reacher's brain plotting his next moves. It is his thoughts that make the books, and it is hard to make that come across in an action movie, no matter the actor.
