Jack Reacher Never Go Back (2016)
springs into action after the arrest of Susan Turner (Cobie Smulders), an Army major accused of treason. Suspecting foul play, Jack embarks on a mission to prove that the head of his old unit is innocent. After crossing paths with the law, Reacher must now go on the lam to uncover the truth behind a major government conspiracy that involves the death of U.S. soldiers.
When Tom Cruise took on the titular role in 2012’s Jack Reacher, the result was an underrated film that brought in action-movie fans as well as readers of Lee Child’s book series.
(It also had a pretty stunning supporting cast, thanks to Rosamund Pike, David Oyelowo, and Werner Herzog.) Four years later, the franchise has a second installment, Jack Reacher: Never Go Back. But despite a subtitle that seems to argue against the very existence of sequels,
it’s worth watching for anyone who wants to see Cruise executing some more brutal stuntwork.
Does it match the high-water mark of Cruise’s work in the
Mission: Impossible franchise? Maybe not,
but it’s still a decent two hours’ worth of vicarious hand-to-hand mayhem.
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.
The second Jack Reacher movie is directed by Ed Zwick and features Tom Cruise as the roving baddie-thumper, this time helping out a US army major (played by Cobie Smulders) who has been wrongly charged with spying.
Lee Child, author of the original series of novels, talks about how the format allows him to address social issues by stealth, and why it’s never a good idea for authors to adapt their own books
