2016 | DIR. EDWARD ZWICK | REVIEW BY GLENN COCHRANE.
Jack Reacher returns to the screen to announce that he has been franchised. Looking a lot older and worn-out in his years, Jack Reacher: Never Go Backfinds him back in action and caught in an uncanny case of déjà-vu. With the mystique and intrigue of the first film no longer a practical storytelling device, the film relies in familiarity and tropes to engage the viewer. The result is an intentionally contrived action-extravaganza that hits the ground running and doesn’t relent.
