Movie Review – Jack Reacher: Never Go Back
This is the second movie in the Jack Reacher series. And while I loved the first, this one was a sad wannabe. Even the opening scene features Jack (Tom Cruise) in a cafe where he’s fought people – and yet none of that is shown. It just has him sitting at the bar and two local cops show up and question him. Boring.
I thought I remember the trailer showing this fight scene – so why did they cut it out – or was I just imagining a better beginning?
The plot was predictable. A teen accuses Jack of being her father and owing back child-support. She played the typical troubled teen. There were plot holes in the book like credit cards get stolen but they don’t ever seem to call it into the authorities and Jack along with his entourage are able to purchase plane tickets, hotel room, etc.
My rating 2.3 stars out of 5
Andrea R. Cooper writes fantasy, paranormal, historical and romantic suspense.
Her favorite childhood memories revolved around creating vibrant characters for her friends, and then acting out their adventures. Inside her fantasy worlds of darkened forests, dragon-filled glades, and iced islands, nothing was banned. From the ethereal Elvin to the most maligned Vampires, all were welcome in her fictional realities, a stark contrast to her home, where the magical and mythical was forbidden.
