Needless to say (it’s an action movie after all) the ensuing manhunt results in many detailed confrontations where weapons use, fist-fights, on-screen shooting and senseless killings are portrayed. Sometimes blood is seen, and often bone-crushing sound effects accompany the altercations. Of course there are car chases, explosions, property damage and bloody injuries too. Perhaps the only surprise in the plot is the inclusion of a teenager (Danika Yarosh) who unintentionally ends up in harm’s way. Her character helps reveal Reacher’s more gentle and protective side.
