Thanks to Co-Writers Richard Wenk and Marshall Herskovitz, Writer/Director Edward Zwick’s Jack Reacher: Never Go Back has a better story than the original with Jack (Tom Cruise) trying to exonerate a wrongly-accused major (Cobie Smulders) and save a 15-year-old girl (Danika Yarosh), who may or may not be his daughter.
However, because of the story, there seemed to be less action than in the original, at least until the climactic chase. But, then, I realized that the 4DX viewing (where your seat moves with punches, etc.) was actually impeding the action for this film as opposed to others I’ve seen in this format.
So, don’t waste your money on it this time. The film is more fun without it.
I give Jack Reacher: Never Go Back a 3.4 out of 5.
