The sequel to the Tom Cruise vehicle, Jack Reacher: Never Go Back, has just dropped. Should you be excited?
One of the movies that might have slide under most people’s radar recent was Jack Reacher.
Based on Lee Child’s best selling book series. Jack Reacher was a straight up action thriller that showcased Tom Cruise as the mysterious nomadic hero.
Think the Hunger Games, Twilight or Harry Potter book popularity but with an adult perspective are popular? You’ve not scratched the surface of the amount of copies of the book series sold since 1997.
Reacher is like a one man A-Team who is a motivated, skilled and a superior military tactician to anyone he encounters.
In the books, Reacher is a former Major in the United States Army Military Police Corps. Having left the military at 36, Reacher roams the United States taking odd jobs while investigating suspicious and frequently dangerous situations.
The new trailer looks like it has taken some of the criticism that were leveled at the first movie and has built upon them. The real stand outs include Cruise being a pretty good bad ass and Cobie Smulders bring the same level of badassery to the few scenes she is showcased in.
The plot finds Reacher try to prove Smulders innocence, while protecting her, after she is charged with a crime.
Jack Reacher: Never Go Back is scheduled for release for later this year and looks like it could be entertaining and perhaps a case of do go back!
