I have read all the Mitch Rapp books twice, absolutely love them.  I have been waiting patently for several years for the Mitch Rapp movie to come out. 

I just watched the preview and it appears to have absolutely nothing to do with the books.  The only thing common appears to be names.  I hate it when Hollywood ruins a good book.  Same thing they done with Shooter.  What a shame.

Then read Lee Child and the Jack Reacher series: bad books, bad movies, badness all around.

I very much enjoy the Lee Child books as well.  But they don't seem to be much like the book either.

Obviously I haven't seen the movie, but even the part of his parents and girlfriends death.  His dad died of a heart attack when he was young and he grew up without them.  In the preview it shows his parents die in a car crash and his girlfriend gets shot by terrorists.  When if fact she dies in a plan crash.

They can do what they want I suppose, they know what makes movies good and what sells.  Just disappointing to me.

They're like an action-adventure version of Nick Evans (Horse Whisperer) stories. I read one my wife had lying around, threw up and proceeded with caution ever since.
