This was a failure. Why filmmakers feel they need to stray from Child's material is beyond me. The actress, Smuthers, doesn't do the female protagonist in the book any justice whatsoever because the filmmaker wanted to focus on having the driest most unattractive personality possible.
It was a terrible film, and a disastrous feet of something that should be so easy to do- making Child's books into films.
A decent watchable action flick with the unstoppable Jack Reacher able to withstand multiple fights and beatings as he solves another case of corruption within the U.S. military.
A slow start as the stage is set for corruption within the military; the pace picks up in the second half. There's a sideplot where Reacher may or may not have a daughter--who has some of his persuasive ways. Lots of violence, sometimes stilted dialogue, and magical realism in Cruise, despite his age, taking on the bad guys and winning in hand-to-hand combat.
Better than no Jack Reacher movies at all.
The title should be: “JACK REACHER: Never Go to Watch this Movie!!”
Yup; even worse than the 1st one. The social engineering propaganda is so blatant and over-the-top, it's torture to watch this. Note: In just the first 12 min. of the film:
>EVERY good guy is a woman. (5 in 1st 12 min.; which include illegal aliens & muslims, of course.)
>EVERY bad guy is a white male. (12 in first 12 min.; gee, what a shocker...)
>EVERY person in charge (except for head bad guy) is a woman. (Who could ever have seen that coming?)
Of course, Jack still leaps tall buildings in 1/2 a bound, and runs faster than a jet (OK, that's why we're watching it), EXCEPT of course, for the lead female role who: drives the car when he rescues her, runs faster than Jack when they're getting away, fights guys that would break her half in .002 seconds (Seriously, my 13 yr. old niece could probably take that actress in any competition.), and, can out think Jack, along with the 15 yr. old juvenile delinquent girl, who can also out think Jack. LOL (Sorry Jack. You're Bada$$, but no match for PC Follywood protocol.)
And as for the constant wisea$$ comments that all the female characters CONTINUALLY make (to "one-up" the males), a lawyer (of course she's female) would NEVER call her client a "Di_khead".
Again: Look at who funds these movies!!!
Another adventure of our mysterious and outside the box main character. In ways I liked this better than the first. The interaction with the girl that clearly must be his daughter was very well done. Apparently the box office didn't like this movie as well as the first and therefore a third and further movies in the series are less likely. There are quite a few examples where initial ratings are not the final parameter of the success or value of a movie or television series.
Pretty good movie action packed!
Directed by Edward Zwick in 2016 based on the book "Never go back" by Lee Child, this American action thriller follows Reacher going on-the-run with an Army Major who has been framed for espionage and reveals a dark conspiracy.
Although it seems like a fine movie as Reacher's heartwarming relationship with a teenaged girl, it would be much better if the director delved into the dark conspiracy.
I watched this because I enjoy watching TC films, but I feel like the first one was better.
Despite violent encounters, Jack Reacher is never injured. Jack Reacher is a cartoon character. Obviously, the producers have spent a lot of money on this picture. But there is nothing to differentiate it from competing franchises. IMHO, I would rate "Jack Reacher: Never Go Back" at no more than 3.0 stars.
