I didn’t see Jack Reacher, the 2012 film adaptation of the popular Lee Childs novels about a vigilante ex-military police officer of the same name. I haven’t read any of the books either. Fortunately, nothing leading up to Jack Reacher: Never Go Back matters! You literally never need to go back! (I’m not sure that is what the title is referring to, but I’m also still not sure what it is.)
When we pick up this time, Reacher (Tom Cruise) has struck up a flirty phone rapport with Major Susan Turner (Cobie Smulders). On the eve of their first meeting cum dinner date, Turner is framed for espionage and arrested. Reacher must break her out and then piece together the who, what, when and where of why someone is trying to take her down. Continue reading →
This October, Jack Reacher returns for another kickass adventure.
This time around, Tom Cruise’s Reacher resurfaces to help out an old friend, played by Cobie Smulders, after she’s been falsely accused of murder and in the process, unravels an entirely new conspiracy along with what could be a family.
Jack Reacher: Never Go Back follows the title character as he returns to Virginia to meet the head of his former unit. But she’s missing, he’s being charged with a crime committed nearly 20 years ago, and he may even have a daughter. Making things right will lead him on a cross-country chase to uncover the truth – and maybe even a family..
Jack Reacher (Tom Cruise) returns with his particular brand of justice in the highly anticipated sequel Jack Reacher: Never Go Back. Major Susan Turner (Cobie Smulders) is the Army Major who heads Reacher’s old investigative unit. She is arrested for Treason and knowing that she is innocent, Reacher must break her out of prison and uncover the truth behind a major government conspiracy in order to clear their names and save their lives. On the run as fugitives from the law, Reacher uncovers a potential secret from his past that could change his life forever. Based upon “Jack Reacher: Never Go Back,” author Lee Child’s 18th novel in the best-selling Jack Reacher series, that has seen 100 million books sold worldwide.
Jack Reacher: Never Go Back also stars Aldis Hodge, Danika Yarosh, Patrick Heusinger, Holt McCallany and Robert Knepper. Continue reading →
