Jack Reacher: Never Back Down is the sequel to the 2012 film starring Tom Cruise in the lead role.
Although the film didn’t make a huge noise at cinemas, it was still a very enjoyable film, so if you haven’t got around to it yet, definitely check it out! It is worth it for the car chase alone in which Tom Cruise did all the driving and stunts himself, because this is Tom-I-Don’t-need-no-stuntman-Cruise after all.
Anyway, let’s move on to the sequel which is being directed by Edward Zwick. Christopher McQuarrie directed the first movie. McQuarrie then joined forces with Tom Cruise for Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation and is set to also helm Mission: Impossible 6 .
Check out the trailer for Jack Reacher: Never Go Back below.
Jack Reacher is based on the set of novels by Lee Child. Tom Cruise purchased the rights to these novels in order to create these films, so expect more to come (there are 20 books to date!)
The problem most people have is that in the books, Reacher is a 6ft 6inch, blond soldier where Cruise is anything but. However, I don’t see any issues with this are books and films never have to fully cooperate, they need to be tweaked in order to give the best outcome. When you go to see an action movie with Tom Cruise, you just know it is going to be insanely good!
