Movie Review Jack Reacher: Never Go Back

Movie Review - Jack Reacher: Never Go Back

Jack Reacher: Never Go Back


When Army Major Susan Turner is framed for treason, Jack Reacher discovers she's the target of a massive government conspiracy. Together, they will risk everything to take down a powerful organization that will stop at nothing to protect its secrets.


A pretty good movie though not accurate to the books. However, author Lee Childs has given his approval. I have not read many of Mr. Childs' books, but my memory is that they have better and more believable plots. In this movie, Reacher is a highly decorated near legend but he has no "old boy or girl" network to call upon in times of trouble? Instead, he asks for help from a relatively new and low ranking NCO with whom he renewed his acquaintance by chance.

The military aspects of the movie do not seem correct. When I was a military police investigator in the Mississippi National Guard, military policemen (women too) were enlisted personnel. CID were NCO'S and warrant officers. Commissioned officers commanded, lead and supervised. They did not perform police duties. They certainly did not escort and guard prisoners. I streamed this movie via Amazon Prime.
This film finds Reacher with something more to protect than the first one. Plenty of action and pay back. The addition of a resourceful, smart teenage girl adds a welcome new dynamic to Reacher's world. This film delivers what fans would expect with a bit of a surprise. This ends up being something of a buddy movie as Jack helps his friend clear her name from some very nasty rouge elements. Recommended for fans of the series.
