Jack Reacher: Never Go Back (2016) Movie Review

Jack Reacher: Never Go Back (2016) is an action movie. And when it blends with the actor Tom Cruise then it is just like the cherry on the cake. However, talking about ‘Jack Reacher’ review, we can say that the film sets off four after the events of the first movie. The film Jack Reacher: Never Go Back (2016) starts with an introduction of the protagonist Jack Reacher who is blissfully sipping coffee in dinner after incapacitating four men single handed. This particular action movie needs to be applauded for its thrilling action stunts along with those hand to hand combat sequences. Some of the other bouquets that need a standing ovation are those red hot bullet flying as well as high-speed car chasing sequences.


However, the brigade factor lies in the film; which is the same kind of plot as it was witnessed four years back. It is a slow paced film which actually does not offer anything new. Yet, Tom Cruise who is living in the list of 50s still goes an extra mile to be fit and trendy. But if am overall for the fans, you would surely not have an adrenaline rush that you all expect from the films where Tom Cruise stars.
