After the times his country has betrayed him; disavowed him; cast him aside – how long before a man like that has had enough?

Good question!

The Mummy Is the Best Part of The Mummy!

The Mummy – the first entry in what Universal Pictures is calling Dark Universe – gives the new universe a pretty shaky start.

Despite Alex Kurtzman showing some skill at juggling character and plot arcs, and keeping things moving forward at a good pace, he can’t overcome the clunky script (six writers involved at story and script levels), lack of genuinely witty banter and a horrendous misuse of Tom Cruise.

Jack Reacher: Never Go Back – Pure Action Movie Fun!

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.

Big Mistake Trailer: Jack Reacher: Never Go Back!

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.
