Jack Reacher: Never Go Back
film / 8.00pm / Sky Cinema Premiere
The highlight of the first Jack Reacher film was the sight of an unarmed Tom Cruise taking on about seven gigantic bruisers single-handed and making mayonnaise of them. Early on in this sequel Tom punches clean through a car window, knocking out a baddie inside. It’s just one of many moments of ‘yay’ action in a plot centring on Tom and
Cobie Smulders, a duo on the wrong side of a dirty tricks operation in Afghanistan. Enjoy the stunts because the plot struggles a bit – a backstory about Reacher’s love child should be a film of its own – but Cruise and Smulders have chemistry and she nearly steals the film.
