Jack Reacher (2012) Poster


Werner Herzog: The Zec



  • The Zec : We'll see which one of us goes to prison.

    Jack Reacher : My bet? Neither one.

    [shoots the Zec in cold blood] 

  • Jack Reacher : With a name like yours, you're gonna feel right at home.

    The Zec : Prison? In America? A retirement home. If I go to prison at all.

    Jack Reacher : You think you're gonna walk?

    The Zec : You are a homeless drifter wanted for murder. Meanwhile, I am an old man in the wrong place at the wrong time. Thanks to you, who is left to say otherwise? Who?

  • Linsky : I made a mistake. I mean, you can still use me, just, just tell me how to fix...

    The Zec : To survive. Don't say "fix it," because you can't. We covered up the one mess. You made another.

    Linsky : All right. You're right. You're right. You're absolutely right. I'm sorry. Just, tell me what I have to do.

    The Zec : I was in prison in Siberia. I spent my first winter wearing a dead man's coat. A hole in one pocket. I chewed these fingers off before the frostbite could turn to gangrene. These I gave up to avoid working in the sulfur mine. That is how I survived when so many others did not. A man this rare can always be of use. So show me. Show me you are rare. Show me you'll do anything to survive.

    Linsky : I don't understand.

    The Zec : The fingers from your left hand.

    Linsky : Have you... Have you got a knife?

    The Zec : Did I have a knife in Siberia?

    Linsky : No... Come on, you've, you've got to be kidding.

    The Zec : You can do it. Show me.

    Linsky : [tries to chew his thumb off]  Christ! Can't! I can't.

    The Zec : Always the bullet.

    Linsky : I can't!

    The Zec : I don't understand.
