I am really disappointed

No signs of Robert Duvall in this one

I still laugh about the scene with old Gunny at the range with brass for earplugs

I have seen people use empty cartridge cases, wadded paper, or nothing at all except fingers. Kind of reminds me of folks using their hand to shield their eyes while driving into the rising or setting sun.

When Jack Reacher came out in 2012 I was pissed that little Tom Cruise was cast as the 6'4" character from the book! I refused to watch it then but trolling thru Hulu I watched it tonight.

I never realized they used the good ole M21 sniper rifle in a couple of different scenes!

Years ago there was a book series made into a British TV mini series, called Game, Set Match. About a British spy named Sampson. He is around 6' and stocky and tough. The actor used in the mini series to play that part was the same guy that plays Bilbo Baggens in Lord of the Rings! A Hobbit!
He is a fine actor but only about 5.4" tall, if that! Ian Holm is his name.
