Jack Reacher (2012)
- Helen (Rosamund Pike) and her father's (Richard Jenkins) surname Rodin is named after Colonel Marc Rodin, one of the three OAS men behind the fictional plot to assassinate President de Gaulle.
- The Jackal has no real name and goes around in a common alias like Zec.
- Both Jack and The Jackal move around and have no permanent places.
- The bullets used in the assassination attempts are custom made.
- Like the Jackal, Jack (Tom Cruise) used four bullets in target practice. Both men use a real bullet on the fourth shot.
- Charlie's (Jai Courtney) smothering Sandy to death is the same way as how The Jackal smothered Madame de Montpelier as to cover their tracks.
- Just like St. Clair who was indirectly feeding information to the OAS, Emerson was revealed to be a mole in the enforcement side.
