Jack Reacher: Never Go Back

Action


 

A former military police officer becomes embroiled in an elaborate frame-job that sets him up as the prime suspect, leaving him running across the country trying to prove his innocence.

"Jack Reacher: Never Go Back" is a ridiculous action movie that's so bad, it's good. It checks all the boxes - cliche'd dialogue, characters who jump to conclusions with little to no evidence, plot holes a plenty... and of course, explosions. Part of this film's charm is how seriously it takes itself, the actors are incredibly dedicated to their terrible roles and even with some strange characterisation choices for our leading man, this is an absurd yet entertaining spectacle. Overreached.
