Jack Reacher is a film adaptation of the 9th novel in a series of 17 written by author Lee Child. The novel went by the title of “One Shot” and was originally released in 2005. The character was written as 6’5″ and 220-odd pounds, so when Tom Cruise was cast, many people voiced their trepidation. I wasn’t familiar with the novels, so I didn’t come into the screening with any preconceived notions or expectations. So, with all that said, is Jack Reacher a ‘one shot’ kill? Read on to find out.
