• • Jack Reacher
Tasha Robinson, The Onion A.V. Club Atlas Shrugged | There’s an unpleasantly condescending, moralizing tone to Jack Reacher, worthy of Atlas Shrugged; his abilities are meant to justify anything he chooses to do, whether it’s intimidating that bar-girl into giving him her car, or murdering an unarmed man out of a sense of entitled justice. Jack Reacher isn’t much of a man, and Jack Reacher isn’t the story of a man. It’s mythmaking for self-satisfied sociopaths.
