Movie Review: Jack Reacher: Never Go Back ****


Jack Reacher: Never Go Back is the second time we’ve seen Tom Cruise as this ex-military justice seeker. Reacher is arrested and accused of being part of a conspiracy against the U.S. government that involves weapons dealing in the Middle East. His contact with a female officer he has never met puts him in the hot seat as mysterious operations try to eliminate loose ends in an apparent arms deal. They escape and try to clear their names while an unknown teenager becomes involved in the action.

Tom Cruise and both the female leads are believable in their well-developed roles. The bad guys are sinister and well-played, too. The story is easy to follow and involves a cat-and-mouse game though Washington, DC, and New Orleans. Halloween in the Big Easy looks like it is as much fun as Mardi Gras. The chase scenes were good, the fight scenes were well choreographed. The loose ends were tied up nicely. Not as good as the first Jack Reacher movie, but still worth the price of admission. I liked it. 4 out of 5 stars.
