I remember digging the villain in the flick, I can't remember who it was but I remember digging him.  See, I saw this right after Django in theaters so naturally my memory was occupied.

Yeah, I don't know who else they could have cast in the movie for the role, he's supposed to be a big, tough guy but I can't think off the top of my head another actor who can "open" a movie that would have worked out the same way.

I definitely don't like the title, but that's an issue for me of naming movies after the main character ("One Shot" or some variation therein would have been fine, I think).  And I also liked how "non-big" it was, it felt a little like the movies from the 90s, it's not a huge CGI fest... it almost feels like it's smaller in scale than the first Bourne movie (I'm not counting Damon as a possible Reacher b/c he was already IN a movie book adaptation like this).  It kind of reminds me of Drive, now that I've seen Drive, and I think early previews (especially with Cruise in that car) were making that comparison.
