comment Have there been other candidates to play Jack Reacher?
@minusSeven To me it has bearing on the appreciation of the movie. I wanted to avoid the issue, but after having read all Jack Reacher novels, just about the last actor I'd imagine to play this role was Tom Cruise. It would have (slightly) helped me to know that no one else was willing or available. Knowing it was a political game makes me appreciate the movie less. It's not trivial to me, but I don't mind other people having a different opinion.

Interesting, but could you elaborate a bit on this coverage in the books?

comment Why did Beth not run earlier?
Your first point is the only point so far that has some evidence in the movie itself and therefore is somewhat beyond speculation. Beth, in a dialogue with a police officer is very vague as to whether William ever beat her.

@JamieTaylor You've got a couple of good points too, maybe you can convert them to an answer?

comment Why did he fall to the ground?
IMDB (bottom of the page) considers this a goof, but I assume that, like me, you'd say that's very unlikely in such a crucial scene.

comment “There are two kinds of people” quote
I happened to stumble across the original book quote and remembered this question. It is a capital mistake to theorize before you have all the evidence. It biases the judgment. (WikiQuote).

comment Why is the big year record not accurate?
Why would it be? They apparently took care not take an unduly high number, but one to make for an outstanding achievement.

comment Are the password cracking methods used in the film remotely realistic?
@BarryHammer Yes, probably, maybe less fun though. But on-topic: I doubt if a recorded and warped sentence from a tiny speaker could pass for the real voice.

comment Are the password cracking methods used in the film remotely realistic?
+1 I'm impressed by your memory. Ironically you don't mention the only thing I could remember: Liz's terrible date with Brandes to obtain the recorded sentence "Hi, my name is Werner Brandes. My voice is my passport. Verify Me."

comment Why are computer hackers shown to either be geniuses, or show them doing it in fantastic ways?
No this is not realistic. I always flip over a keyboard for the sticky note attached to the bottom.

comment How are injections given without injuring actors?
Hard to answer this in a general sense. Some actors absolutely won't do it, others (Jackass) absolutely won't pass the chance.
