Movie Review: Jack Reacher: Never Go Back (NC16)
Here's yet another Tom Cruise action vehicle, so you know what to expect.
Explosions, conspiracy theories, Cruise looking dangerously sexy while engaging in fisticuffs and gunfights.
It's a formula he has used in the Mission: Impossible franchise, Edge Of Tomorrow and Oblivion.
Heck, his Oblivion character is called Jack Harper, and now here he is playing Jack Reacher. Talk about being a Jack of one trade.
In the first Jack Reacher film, Cruise played the titular former military police head who retired to become a lone wanderer.
In this sequel, Reacher ignores the Never Go Back part of the title to return to his former military comrades when Major Susan Turner (Cobie Smulders) is accused of treason.
The chemistry between Cruise and Smulders is indeed smouldering. They should be paired together on screen more often.
