    Second chronicle of Jack Reacher

    I went into this second chronicle of Jack Reacher at the theater with even expectations. I didn't expect it to outdo the first film (which exceeded my expectations) and I also didn't think it would be a bust like countless other Hollywood sequels. So I tried to view this from the onset with an open mind and eager to see where this story would go since I have not read yet the corresponding story in book-form. Overall, I was very impressed with the film! In many ways, I believe it exceeds or even is better than the first Reacher film. From reading some of the initial reviews it looks like others don't share that sentiment, but I disagree. Frankly, too many reviews are colored with the typical criticism of "Cruise doesn't physically match up with the Reacher in the books....blah, blah, blah....". That talking point is way beyond overused at this point. I start to tune out when I read it anymore and skip the review. In my mind, it's a non-issue because 1) It's Hollywood: with any cinematic experience we're expected to suspend disbelief and maybe more importantly, 2) Tom Cruise's performance of Jack Reacher, especially in this sequel, is PERFECT! It is. Cruise nailed the nuances, demeanor, attitude and presence of Reacher in every way and I thought he outdid his performance in the first film. Never Go Back seemed to demand more dialogue and character development and Cruise had me believing in his performance. Yeah, he's not blonde. Yeah, he's not 6'5". It doesn't matter. And it's too bad so many (most?) won't give him and these films a chance and always allow "the talking point" to prejudice their reviews. Aside from Cruise's performance, the action and storyline were also great. The bad-guys may have been stereotypical, but that's to be expected in many ways. And the fight scenes once again are the most realistically depicted compared to what Hollywood usually offers. They were awesome!

    While it is the second Jack Reacher film, for those who haven't watched the first, it does give enough in this film that you don't need to have seen the first (though you might want to because that was good also). According to the extras, this story is rather unique since Jack usually is more of a loner. He is helped by the woman (Cobie Smulders) who took his position after he left the military to help in the introductory part of the movie. Intrigued by the sound of her voice and the conversations they have, Jack goes to DC to meet her for lunch only to find out that she has been put into military prison instead by the MPs she once headed for treason. While starting to look into his friend's charges, which he is pretty certain are false, Jack discovers that he might also have a daughter. That puts the girl (played by Danika Yarosh) in danger when Jack's investigations put him in the cross hairs of the men who have framed his friend and buried several others involved. When he frees his friend in a jail break, they have to grab his "daughter" since the men are more than willing to use her against Jack making for an interesting time as fugitives. Suddenly forced into a family of sorts, the three work together to unravel the deceptions of the paramilitary company that have both framed them for treason and are out to kill them as well. It was a very good movie with the 3 main characters putting up performances that made you really love them and hope that they could get out of the predicament safely somehow. For those who like characterization to go with their action, this film should be right up their alley.

    Run of the Mill Sequel

    I was a big fan of the first Jack Reacher film, so I was hoping for that same intense, subtle passive aggressive threats in the second film. I felt this movie was a let down from the first. Tom Cruise does a great job with what he has and what is being directed of him. But the story line is okay, but just does not bring strength or mystery in why the bad guys are doing what they are doing. The first one was intriguing about the cover up and the set ups. Never Go Back lacked that hatred for the bad guys and you could not relate to the female heroine and the struggles that she was going thru. When the characters don't feel genuine and the spark is lacking between the characters it just doesn't come across the screen. Then there is the other side storyline about the young girl who hates the world and could or could not be related to the main character. You never really feel development of this side story between Reacher and the young girl. It has the feel good ending and probably the correct ending, but it was a more of a so what moment. I gave it 3 stars because it is watchable but don't look for anything other than an action movie with lack of relatable characters and a mediocre story line.

    I enjoyed both films a lot; Tom Cruise owns the role as far as I'm concerned. With this film, I was never bored, I liked Colbie Smolders character; she was a beautiful, strong and smart woman and an equal match to Reacher, and she did her own stunts. I liked the new dynamic between Reacher, Turner and the young girl, the action was good; the fighting sequences looked gritty and painful and I really enjoyed the ending showing an emotional vulnerability of Reacher. I really appreciated Tom Cruise not being afraid to show his age in this film; instead of being a larger than life Action Hero like he has been in most of his other films, in Never Go Back, he's not a superhero; when he is hit, he is is pain, when he falls, he doesn't bounce back up, it's hard and he is in pain, but he gets back up, he is a MAN, that's what I got of the film and I really REALLY enjoyed it. I sincerely hope there will be a third Reacher Film with Cruise in it. As for the 4k version, the picture is vivid and the sound rocks, the special features are great as well on the Blu-Ray. I highly recommend this film!

    Jack is back and still a bit anti social.

    The latest installment in the Jack Reacher holds true to form in action & excitement. This is a character that Tom Cruise seems very comfortable in and he delivers what you'd expect from him, a solid performance with penty of the "Thursday night smack down" an action movies needs. I have seen Colbie Smulders was very good in the Avengers, Cap. America, etc.., but here she seemed to struggle with her character a bit. And there were a few scenes that highlighted this, and others that just did not make much sense, either for the characters or their timing. They really seemed to be there, more to fill someone' need to make a statement, than be part of the story. When I watch an ok movie that had the potential to be a great film, if not for someone's need of an underlying message, it makes me wish Hollywood would stick to entertaining and let the activists make their "statements" on their own time. Overall a decent movie, but could have been better.

    Best scenes were from the Trailer...

    If you are like me, the first Jack Reacher movie caught you off guard and pleasantly surprised you. I was well entertained from the first movie and enjoyed the ride... so I figured this second installment would be along the same journey. Oops, I forgot the rule of trying to recreate the same magic with a follow-up film! Rarely do sequels do as well as the original (save for Aliens, Harry Potter movies and others) - but we always hope for that magic, right? This movie's best lines and action were all spilled in the trailer that we all saw before watching the movie or buying it. They unloaded the best stuff and the rest was below par. No, this isn't a terrible movie - but it pales in comparison with the first one. Save yourself the $ and wait for it on the movie channels and then you be the judge. Hey, I'm here to help so that you don't buy the blu-ray (like me) and then scratch your head later.

    Reacher is Reacher

    The simplistic man with a highly-developed sense of right and wrong. I read the book before seeing the movie. Reacher fans initially complained about Tom Cruise's first foray into the Reacher franchise, since the book's character's description didn't seem to match Cruise on screen. Yet, he pulled it off. Lee Child sees the movie versions of his books as an alternative telling of the story and that Cruise maintains the character essentials of the single man loner presentation. The movie extends the character as the movie only shadows the original story in concept as some of the story is missing the book sections but extends and explores the Reacher persona in a more emotional interaction. Satisfying overall, a bit disappointing when compared to the book., and this only raises the question of where does the movie Reacher go based on the books themselves.

    Excellent Blu-ray Package - "so-so" movie

    The packaging for this 4K disc was simplistic, but was clear it was 4K The disc was manufactured well. No errors. I bought it without seeing the movie (was less than the price of my wife and i going to the movies to see it.) But, the content of the movie was well below the first movie... cruise seemed uninvested, unexcited about his role...so, essentially the movie dragged on. I wanted it as part of my collection, but i would have been better off waiting for just the Bluray offering with a deep discount. Hence, while the price overall was a good bargain, ultimately the movie was non-engaging enough that i feel the disc was way over-priced. I would recommend the DVD instead (or the Blu-ray at a $5 deep discount). I would not recommend the 4K version because its price results in buyers remorse.
