* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter: Lamarr of ''The Visitor'' was unattractive, uncharismatic, and had no attraction or chemistry with Reacher. [[spoiler:She turned out to be a sociopathic antagonist.]] Some readers expressed that they would have rather seen her as an atypical GirlOfTheWeek to Reacher and avoided the typical RomanticPlotTumor that often plagues the book, but instead she's replaced by Lisa Harper, who's not much different or memorable than any other GirlOfTheWeek.

* CriticalResearchFailure: In ''Personal'', Reacher tells us that adding 20% to a body's speed adds 400% to its kinetic energy. That should be 44% - good but not quite as impressive. Particularly jarring as Child consistently portrays Reacher as a [[GoodWithNumbers mental arithmetic whizz]].

** When Reacher learns that a murder victim was [[spoiler: his brother.]] It's worse since his corspe was found with nearly every bone broken and a very large hole through his eye.

** Tom Cruise for most of the part can put the AbilityOverAppearance but when a receptionist paints him as the guy who can kill a woman with his bare hands while hinting it is obvious by the looks of him, it's kind of ridiculous given Tom Cruise isn't exactly a powerhouse.

* CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming: Usually when Reacher knows he's rescued everybody and everyone else is hugging their loved ones.

* MartyStu: Reacher can tend this way at times - it's particularly pronounced in those volumes of the series which are written in first person.



* RomanticPlotTumor: Reacher's romances with the GirlsOfTheWeek are not exactly the most intriguing part of the series.

* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: The accused sniper. Did he [[SummonBiggerFish call Jack Reacher in ]]because EvenEvilHasStandards, as suggested by his partially guilt-driven breakdown upon waking up thinking he committed the crime? Or did he just want to ensure that his framers experienced TakingYouWithMe?

* {{Narm}}: Might be the only time you'll hear someone in a modern film actually say, with no hint of irony, "I'm not a hero. I'm a drifter with nothing to lose."
