I never read any of Lee Child's novels, so out of curiosity about the upcoming movie, I went and got "One Shot". I don't think that I care for the prose of Mr. Child. The book failed to captivate and entertained me. So, I went to the movie with dread but it turned out to be an entertaining action flick. Didn't quite have an impact like Collateral Damage or as high spirited as Knight and Day, but definitely entertaining. If they were to make a sequel, I'll watch it. However, I won't read another boring *** Jack Reacher novel.
