Jack Reacher: Never Go Back

Tom Cruise in Jack Reacher Never Go Back which he will talk about on Jimmy Kimmel Live

And yet here they are with Jack Reacher: Never Go Back, a sad excuse of a movie that starts bad and only gets worse. Major Turner keeps track of Reacher by phone as he roams the country exposing bad guys. "Never Go Back is deeply mediocre, as rote and indistinct as most of the action flicks that've marked Liam Neeson's late-career lull", he writes. Reacher determines to clear Turner of charges of espionage and responsibility of the deaths of two military investigators under her command operating in Afghanistan. They then rescue a dishevelled teen who may or may not be his long-lost daughter (Danika Yarosh). I don't know how you do it, or even why, but who am I to tell you to stop?

Cruise made his film debut as a teenager in Endless Love (1981) and has starred in some of the highest grossing films and had remained one of the highest paid actor in the world. It's clear that Smulders enjoys the opportunity to put behind all her experience from the Avengers movies to good use for once, and she does her best to stand up to Reacher's action as much as the script allows her. This one's for Reacher, Cruise and Child fans alone. The Board wants kids to watch Cruise's new film.

More news: Apple's October 27 event is scheduled

Finally, the best-selling author himself, Lee Child, gave us an insight into the dynamics between his characters, and he also spoke of his upcoming work, the latest of the Jack Reacher series. The question is how long Cruise can play these kinds of action hero roles and maintain his fan base. Those changes need to let the star use more of his natural appeal and express a wider range of human feelings. That's what I mean about the second-tier Mission: Impossible feel of this whole enterprise: The Jack Reacher films feel cheaper, less thought-out, and less compelled to justify their existence.
