Jack Reacher must uncover the truth behind a major government conspiracy in order to clear his name. On the run as a fugitive from the law, Reacher uncovers a potential secret from his past that could change his life forever.
Action Adventure Crime - Like the first film, this is an action drama based on Lee Child's
long-running novel series. While rated PG-13, there is a fair amount
of brutal violence and language, so parents should proceed with
caution. Also as with the first, this is a big starring showcase for
Tom Cruise, but fans of female lead Cobie Smulders will also enjoy
her equal part.
PROFANITY: 11 S-words; 2 GD's; a number of others. SEX/NUDITY: None. VIOLENCE: Fights and shootings with moderate blood. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: None. ACTION: Fights, chases, explosions. COMEDY: Some comic lines and exchanges.
Berardinelli, Internet CriticFull Review Below Average It's not enough to save Never Go Back. Not nearly enough. This should have been released a month later. Stuffed turkeys belong on Thanksgiving.
Roger EbertFull Review Average There is nothing terrible about this film, yet it fails everyone involved with it. That's the kind of magic trick that you don't want to see.
USA TodayFull Review Average ack Reacher: Never Go Back is a major step backward with an A-list actor in a C-grade military thriller.
Rolling StoneFull Review Good Cruise finds the core of Reacher in his eyes, with a haunted gaze that says this lone wolf is still on a mission and still a long way from home. That's the Reacher Lee Child created in his books.
