Tom Cruise’s other franchise is about to be released on home video.
Jack Reacher: Never Go Back finds Reacher teaming up with Major Susan Turner, the commanding officer of his old unit, to find out who’s framing her for the murder of two of their own.
Jack Reacher: Never Go Back will available in 4K Ultra HD and Blu-ray Combao Pack on January 31, 2017 – following its debut on Digital HD two weeks earlier. Read on for details including bonus material.
Jack Reacher: Never Go Back – based on the novel by Lee Child – is both a typical and atypical Tom Cruise action movie. It has a decent plot; plenty of action, chases (on foot and by car), clever solutions to difficult problems, and a lead female role that is an equal protagonist – and another one that could almost be a kid Reacher.
Directed by Edward Zwick (Glory, The Last Samurai), Never Go Back is plain, (kinda) old-fashioned action movie fun.
Every time I see a trailer or TV spot for the new Jack Reacher film, Never Go Back, I’m reminded of Dustin Hoffman’s out of work actor in Tootsie, who – after not getting a role because he’s too short, responds, ‘I can act tall!’
Despite looking nothing like the descriptions of Reacher in the books, the more I see of Cruise in the role, the more I’m buying him in the role.
In Jack Reacher: Never Go Back, Reacher is contacted by the woman who has his old job commanding MPs. When he visits DC to see her, he’s told she’s under arrest for treason. Reacher, of course, doubts that – finds it highly problematic, in fact.
A new 60-second TV spot dropped today – with some cool new footage. Check it out after the break. Jack Reacher: Never go back will premiere on October 21st.
