Jack Reacher: Never Go Back is the second movie of the famous Lee Child book series, in which Tom Cruise is greatly miscast as the lead role of Jack Reacher.
Reacher is 6’5″ – 240, while Cruise falls 8″ short and an unknown weight smaller, but they take the cameras from the right angles to make him appear to be the dominating figure that he’s supposed to be.
Cobie Smulders is the female lead and plays the role of Turner, who has Reachers’ old role as leader of the 110th, making a nice yin to Cruises’ yang. Meanwhile Danika Yarosh plays the role of a potential child of Reachers’, who needs to be protected as the group hunting Turner/Reacher try their hardest to get to Jack.
Lee Childs has a “Stan Lee-esque” cameo in the movie, which I always find to be a nice touch and a thanks to the person who built the character up to what they are today.
This movie is good, but not great, and gets a 6.5 out of 10.
