Jack Reacher

Continuity mistake: When Reacher arrives at the shooting range it's hot and sunny. When he walks down the driving range it's overcast and looks like it's been raining with a slight mist coming in. When he looks back down the range, cut to the owner and shooting scene and it's hot and sunny again.

Continuity mistake: At the end of the bar fight when the cops are pulling up to the scene, a shot from inside one of the cop cars shows it passing the blue pickup truck and getting close to Reacher and Sandy. In the next shot from Reacher's perspective, both cop cars are much further away.

Continuity mistake: When Barr is being interviewed in the hospital, at the end of the film, the bloodiness of his facial injuries lessens as the scene goes. Also, it seems like the prosthetic scab on his top lip is coming loose. (02:02:00)

Continuity mistake: In the car chase in Jack Reacher's car, there's a sticker with numbers on it - first it said 5 12, then 7 12, then 9 12, and from the shots within the car it doesn't show the sticker at all.

Continuity mistake: When Sandy is going out she puts on bright red lipstick. When the police find her body the lipstick is gone.

Continuity mistake: When Jack reverses aggressively out of the motel car park onto the road, he steers the car to his left and drives down the road, not leaving any tyre marks. In the next shot, the police cars exit the car park sliding out onto the road to their right, following tyre marks which have magically appeared, presumably from a previous take of that action.

Continuity mistake: In the car chase scene in Jeb's car after Sandy is killed, Jeb's left rear tail light and front right fog light go from working to not working to working again over and over.

Continuity mistake: In the pursuit scene between Jack in the red Chevy and the two bad guys in the silver Audi, the Chevy right front fender is completely wrinkled after a side to side crash. When the car stops after exiting the tunnel, the fender is still wrinkled, but when Jack momentarily loses control and the car skids, the fender is unwrinkled and stays that way.

Jack Reacher: You think I'm a hero? I am not a hero. And if you're smart, that scares you. Because I have nothing to lose.

More quotes from Jack Reacher

Trivia: A point in the score from this, by Joe Kraemer, inspired The Batman's signature motif by Michael Giacchino. After the phone call between Jack and Helen when he warns her potentially not to trust her father, he's driving across a bridge and the music is almost identical to the "bom...bombom...bom" theme from The Batman.
