Jack Reacher: Never Go Back

Jack Reacher: Never Go Back

Jack Reacher: Never Go Back, starring Tom Cruise, Cobie Smulders, and Aldis Hodge, is set to open in theaters on October 21.

Cruise, who has made himself this generation's ultimate action star, is ideal as Jack Reacher. Like the previous installment, the movie attempts to have its feminist cake and reduce its female characters to crumbs, too: it will let Turner tell Reacher he's a "dick" for being such a pig to her - which he is - but her brains and competence will be shown up by Reacher's every time.

As for the supporting roles, Danika Yarosh impresses as the resourceful teenager, but the film criminally wastes Prison Break's Robert Knepper as the chief villain. You know what's about to happen, but you're along for the ride the whole time.

Tom is now on the promotional trail with his new movie, action thriller Jack Reacher: Never Go Back, which hits cinemas this week.

The formulaic style of the stories is what made the Jack Reacher series popular in the fist place.

UN Security Council Unable to Agree on Syria Resolution
For a draft resolution submitted by France and Spain which demands an end to air strikes over Aleppo, Russia vetoed it. It said government forces were making further advances on Saturday in the lead-up to the Security Council session.


When he returns to his old base to hook up with his replacement, Major Susan Turner (Cobie Smulders), he discovers she's facing a court martial after the death of two soldiers in Afghanistan. In this particular one it was really awesome to read these two characters and to see how they interacted with each other. Tom Cruise says he also enjoys playing Jack Reacher, because it's a very active role and he still likes to get out there and do his own stunts. I was so relieved to show up and have both Ed Zwick, our writer-director, and Tom-Tom Cruise, I don't know why I need to explain that you to-as focused, if not more, in making sure that Susan Turner was taking the lead, had an opinion, was a part of the story.

Cruise spent over an hour on the red carpet, in London's Leicester Square, meeting fans and speaking to press, having flown in from Los Angeles earlier that day.

Seeing Corden steal the show as Dustin Hoffman's character from "Rain Man", Jack Nicholson's character from "A Few Good Men", Emily Blunt's character from "Edge of Tomorrow" and a random suspect from "Minority Report" makes it clear no amount of auditioning could secure Tom the fun roles.

Acting as one of, if not the final media dumps prior to release, we now have a gallery of high-res screenshots for Never Go Back to pour over, teasing shootouts, goons and some old fashioned double-crossing. I think he's such a fine film-maker. Bring on ten more Jack Reacher movies.

The 12th film was Jerry Maguireline. Meltynautes then, do you go to see Jack Reacher Never Go Back to the movies?
