Starring: Tom Cruise, Cobie Smulders, Danika Yarosh
Cops show up at a diner where a brawl’s gone down, with one guy taking down all comers. That guy is Jack Reacher (Tom Cruise), and he’s not the one who’ll be leaving the scene in handcuffs…
A former US Army major, Reacher’s living a transient life as he tries to get things together.
A dinner date with current major Susan Turner (The Avengers’ Cobie Smulders) may help him turn his life around, but when he discovers that she’s been accused of espionage and detained – and if that isn’t enough, he also learns of a possible ghost from his past – it’s time for this ex-military man to do his thing. This involves everything from going on the lam with Turner to prove her innocence, to a spot of teenager babysitting, time in prison, and a rollicking rooftop rumble.
If – despite innumerable Mission: Impossible flicks – you still can’t quite buy Cruise as an action hero, then Jack Reacher: Never Go Back isn’t likely to change your mind. But if you can open it a little, you’ll discover a disarming and often genuinely exciting action romp.
