Movie Review: "Jack Reacher: Never Go Back"

Jack Reacher: Never Go Back features Tom Cruise once more in the role from Lee Child's bestselling book series.  A former MP turned vigilante drifter, Reacher is once again drawn into a game of political intrigue when his successor in Washington, Major Turner (played with kick butt awesomeness by Cobie Smulders), is falsely accused of treason.  Like the first Jack Reacher movie, there are twists, fist fights, and shootouts galore, however unlike the first movie, Never Go Back has a much tauter story.  There are less plot holes in Never Go Back than there were in the first Jack Reacher movie, and that is what makes this one the better of the two.  While director Edward Zwick does a good job directing the action, the movie doesn't necessarily do anything new in the action/thriller genre, but it does what one expects of a movie like this exceedingly better than pretty much any other action movie in recent memory.

I give Jack Reacher: Never Go Back a 9 out of 10!
