Jack Reacher must uncover the truth behind a major government conspiracy in order to clear his name. On the run as a fugitive from the law, Reacher uncovers a potential secret from his past that could change his life forever.
Christian Wolff is a math savant with more affinity for numbers than people. Behind the cover of a small-town CPA office, he works as a freelance accountant for some of the world's most dangerous criminal organizations. With the Treasury Department's Crime Enforcement Division, run by Ray King, starting to close in, Christian takes on a legitimate client: a state-of-the-art robotics company where an accounting clerk has discovered a discrepancy involving millions of dollars. But as Christian uncooks the books and gets closer to the truth, it is the body count that starts to rise. Written by
Toward the end of the movie when Christian shoots at the safe house with his sniper rifle that Solomon Grundy is hiding in, he fires about fourteen shots before he stops. The gun that he is using to do so, the Barrett M82A1, only has a magazine capacity of ten rounds. Even if Christian already had a round in the chamber along with the standard box magazine fully loaded before he started shooting, there's no way he would've been able to fire more than eleven shots before having to reload at least once.

If I was Ben Affleck and handed this script for the movie, I'd take it as it sounds like a good plot, however I'd refuse the part to play an Autistic person whose got super-human powers, an ace sniper shot, excellent heavy machine gun skills and a maths whiz because that's just gone over-board. They've practically made Ben Afflek untouchable, even worse than Jack Reacher because at least Jack Reacher gets a few hits to the face. This accountant has become something like the Equaliser, just out for revenge that can single-handedly take out a mafia. Why have the Directors not got any realism anymore in their scripts? I know this isn't a non-fiction movie but its becomes unbearable
