I am a big fan of the Jack Reacher character. I’ve read all the books and do find that the character is better in the books than as played by Tom Cruise in the movies. It is odd really but while I think the movies are great and both movies so far closely follow two of the novels they are still very different. However, I’m getting ahead of myself.
I read the novel “Never Go Back” in 2014 and going by the blog post I wasn’t that impressed by the plot. The movie however was excellent. Reacher is enigmatic and distant as ever but can see clues no one else can and put the pieces together faster than anyone. Of course he can handle himself in fights as well but it’s the problem solving that keeps the plot moving.
Great movie, would watch again!
