Rebecca’s Movie Review – Jack Reacher: Never Go Back

thDo you like a good action movie?  I do.  Sometimes it is just good to go to the movies and not have to think or use your brain.  I just want to move to another world and get away from my everyday life.  That is why went to see the new Jack Reacher movie the other night.  Approrpiate the title is Jack Reacher: Never Go Back. HA HA.  Well the truth is that we always go back…or is it black?

Well I loved the first movie formula and Tom Cruise tries to replicate it all:

  • Corrupt action
  • Rogue Vigilante
  • Female needing hunky man who likes to bare his chest
  • Scar under left cheek
  • Snarky funny action scenes
  • The old guy mastermind
  • The tough bad guy soldier who fights Jack to the finish

You’d think with all of that, that it would be great, but something was missing.  I think the story wasn’t as good as the first one.  I also think there were too many sensitive moments for Jack which made him seem weaker.  I almost fell asleep during the movie too.  We went home and watched the original again and agreed that there was something missing.  Maybe more insight into why Jack is the way he is.

It is up to you if you want to see the movie, but I am going to recommend that you wait for it to go “on-demand” .  I give it 2 1/2 erections!
