Another accessible rote post-Bourne era action thriller. The blurred boundary between Cruise's Ethan Hunt and Jack Reacher makes this additional franchise particularly tenuous. Nonetheless, it's a passable and competent piece of multiplex moviemaking.
Though an improvement on the first entry, due to more dynamic direction and better supporting characters, this second film in the franchise feels one or two set pieces short of a satisfying action flick. Cruise is on autopilot here but Cobie Smulders does well in an under written role.
Today's problem with mainstream Hollywood is that films are more interested in promising what the next chapter will be rather than deeply exploring what the movie we're watching is. In Never Go Back (oddly reminiscent of Justin Bieber), the promise of a full blown collaboration between Reacher and his quasi-daughter is much more compelling than the will-they-won't-they scenario Zwick perpetuates.
enjoyed that the yuppie villain was driving a Tesla, wearing COS and calling from a Iphone 6s while Cruise was rocking blue jeans, white t-shirt and workers jacket, calling from non-smart phones (burners) and driving stolen old chevy's.
JACK REACHER: NEVER GO BACK isn't as bad as they said. It isn't great either. NEVER GO BACK kinda reminds me of some Class-B movies in the 1980's. It's a straight-action movie & surprisingly entertaining. I know it has some plot holes in it & it seems I don't care at all. I watch this movie because I need a guilty pleasure. Tom Cruise is Tom Cruise as usual. The supporting characters doesn't get enough spotlight...
(Vu en DVD) Là où le premier Jack Reacher avait ce petit truc en plus qui emballe le spectateur, ce second opus laisse par contre de marbre et se contente d'être un film d'exploitation d'une extrême platitude. Si les scènes d'action ne déméritent pas, un scénario extrêmement paresseux et un Tom Cruise au jeu d'acteur plus mécanique et figé que jamais (peut-il encore sourire?) plombent littéralement l'ensemble.
This new installment drop big levels from where Jack Reacher left it back in 12.
Never Go Back is such a mess.The new story is very trite,lacking originality and freshness and the script is the bad apple here.I bet that the book is fine but here the story is awful with no heed for the small details that often makes the main difference.
Bad directing,low supporting cast and so Cruise is left alone in this flick.
