Jack Reacher: Never Go Back(2016)


As with the first film, I heard a lot of negativity toward Jack Reacher: Never Go Back from moviegoers around the internet. And as before, I don't give a f*ck about the book to big screen translation. I'm just concerned about the end product. The hatred toward the first film I felt was unjustified so going into this one, I was a bit leery of people b*tching and moaning. Well, having just watched Jack Reacher: Never Go Back, there is some truth to some of the negativity a degree. I still don't think it's as bad as most people make it out to be, but it is definitely a step down from the first film. I thought the first hour of Never Go Back was a pretty solid film. It's the second half where it lost a lot of steam and didn't deliver on two fronts for me. The entire movie is building up to the Colonel / Arms Dealer getting his comeuppance. The whole thing on the Tarmac was pretty damn uneventful. But the biggest gaffe was the final showdown between Cruise and the main Villain. Their "fight" was just downright lame. If I wanted to watch to old guys hobbling around trying to beat the sh*t out of each other and looking bad at it....I'll watch Grudge Match ('s-blu-rays/grudge-match-(2013)/msg32989/#msg32989). Never Go Back is just an okay flick for me. Worth a Rent.
