Movie Review: #JackReacherNeverGoBack

Jack Reacher: Never Go Back is middle of the road action blah.

Review by Matt Cummings

It's impressive when you consider the effect which Actor Tom Cruise has had on the Jack Reacher series. His decision to portray the former military man-turned wandering badass gave Cruise a grounded hero that resulted in one of our favorite movies of 2012. Regardless if the diehard Reacher fans liked the smallish Cruise for the 6'5" role (are there diehard Reacher fans out there?), it garnered a second film after the original took off in the home market. Sadly, Jack Reacher: Never Go Back is a step backward: it's a predictable, paint-by-the-numbers experience that's strangely still very watchable.

When his Military Police replacement Major Turner (Cobie Smulders) is arrested for treason, Reacher (Cruise) busts her out and goes on a quest to prove her innocence. But his greatest struggles won't be against Turner's would-be assassin (Patrick Heusinger), but with the 15-year-old Samantha (Danika Yarosh) who has filed against Reacher for being a deadbeat dad. Soon, the headstrong and persistent girl becomes the target of the assassin, who promises to make Reacher pay for investigating a military conspiracy with far-reaching implications. The results will see the drifter tested to his limits, while seeks to identify whether Samantha is in fact her daughter.

Never Go Back does in fact go back(ward) thanks to the rather limp direction by Edward Zwick, who fails to up the ante from the original in any way. The car chases seem lamer and the back-and-forth between Cruise and the good Smulders feels more like Writer Richard Wenk took author Lee Child's book in name only, failing to infuse the story with anything more than average-pulse story beats. We know how this tale is going to play out, and can read the tea leaves long before they happen, including the wedged-in appearance of Samantha, who will be pursued at just the right time. Nothing here is new or done with the same vigor as Director Christopher McQuarrie's 2012 gem, with a number of issues popping up throughout.

The original impressed as a terrific murder mystery: Jack Reacher: Never Go Back retains absolutely zero of that panache. The action is as routine as a penny on the ground: none of it is shot uniquely, nor is Cruise really given a moment to throw down properly like he did against Jai Courtney in the original. Perhaps the worst part of Never Go Back are the one-note bad guys, including the arms/drug dealer Gen. Harkness (Robert Knepper) who's only there to be arrested by Reacher during the pivotal third act. The Zeck would have made Harkness eat his fingers before killing him, and probably enjoyed it. Luckily, the chemistry between Cruise, Smulders, and Yarosh keep us from falling asleep. Smulders proves why she'll be a great Maria Hill when Marvel takes the gloves off, and Yarosh is a suitable force against the always-excellent Cruise.

Jack Reacher: Never Go Back is your standard action flick and nothing more. It's largely predictable, fails to be remarkable, and is watchable mainly due to Cruise's absolute command of the character. Without him, it's an uninspired hack of a really great murder mystery that McQuarrie so lovingly gave us with the original. See it, so long as you know what you're going to get.

Jack Reacher: Never Go Back is rated PG-13 for sequences of violence and action, some bloody images, language and thematic elements and has a runtime of 118 minutes.

Here It Is. The Nintendo Switch

Nintendo provided the first glimpse of its new home gaming system and revealed that it is called Nintendo Switch. In addition to providing single and multiplayer thrills at home, the Nintendo Switch system also enables gamers to play the same title wherever, whenever and with whomever they choose. The mobility of a handheld is now added to the power of a home gaming system to enable unprecedented new video game play styles.



At home, Nintendo Switch rests in the Nintendo Switch Dock that connects the system to the TV and lets you play with family and friends in the comfort of your living room. By simply lifting Nintendo Switch from the dock, the system will instantly transition to portable mode, and the same great gaming experience that was being enjoyed at home now travels with you. The portability of Nintendo Switch is enhanced by its bright high-definition display. It brings the full home gaming system experience with you to the park, on an airplane, in a car, or to a friend’s apartment.

Gaming springs into action by removing detachable Joy-Con controllers from either side of Nintendo Switch. One player can use a Joy-Con controller in each hand; two players can each take one; or multiple Joy-Con can be employed by numerous people for a variety of gameplay options. They can easily click back into place or be slipped into a Joy-Con Grip accessory, mirroring a more traditional controller. Or, if preferred, the gamer can select an optional Nintendo Switch Pro Controller to use instead of the Joy-Con controllers. Furthermore, it is possible for numerous people to bring their Nintendo Switch systems together to enjoy local multiplayer face-to-face competition.

“Nintendo Switch allows gamers the freedom to play however they like,” said Reggie Fils-Aime, President and COO, Nintendo of America. “It gives game developers new abilities to bring their creative visions to life by opening up the concept of gaming without boundaries.”

Developers can design their games supporting a variety of play styles, which gives gamers the freedom to choose an experience that best suits them. Some of the publishers, developers and middleware partners announcing support for Nintendo Switch are as follows:

Donald Glover Cast As Lando Calrissian In The Han Solo Stand-Alone Film

Lucasfilm announced today that Donald Glover, an acclaimed actor, award-winning writer, and Grammy-nominated artist, will be playing the part of Lando Calrissian in the still-untitled Han Solo Star Wars film, helmed by directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller. Glover will join Alden Ehrenreich -- previously cast as Han Solo -- in bringing two iconic Star Wars characters back to the big screen, but at a time in their lives previously unexplored. This new film depicts Lando in his formative years as a scoundrel on the rise in the galaxy's underworld -- years before the events involving Han, Leia, and Darth Vader in The Empire Strikes Back and his rise to Rebel hero in Return of the Jedi.


“We're so lucky to have an artist as talented as Donald join us,” said Lord and Miller. “These are big shoes to fill, and an even bigger cape, and this one fits him perfectly, which will save us money on alterations. Also, we'd like to publicly apologize to Donald for ruining Comic-Con for him forever.”

Glover is best known for creating and starring in the critically acclaimed FX series Atlanta (which had the highest premiere numbers for any basic cable comedy show since 2013), as well as for starring in four seasons of the show Community, and for his Grammy-nominated album Because the Internet, performed under the name Childish Gambino. In addition, Glover appeared in the Academy Award-nominated The Martian, and will be seen in the upcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming.
The untitled Han Solo movie is set for release in 2018.

International Trailer For #LOGAN

Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine has survived through the full X-Men movie series and now, after 16 years, he’s whipping out his claws one last time for Logan. And in the third and final Wolverine movie, he’s losing his self-healing powers—but he’s found his successor.



Set in 2024, Logan brings Wolverine back as a lone survivor in a time when mutants are all gone or in hiding, hunted by government assassins. Set to Johnny Cash’s cover of “Hurt” by Nine Inch Nails (director James Mangold is also behind the Cash biopic Walk the Line), the first trailer for the movie shows a scarred Logan living in a wasteland, isolated from the rest of the world.

But in such a dire time, there’s still hope: Wolverine and a very sickly Charles Xavier (Patrick Stewart) must come together to protect Laura (Sienna Novikov), a young girl with powers very similar to Logan’s, from the cyborg Reavers. Audiences will find out whether Laura is indeed X-23—a clone of Wolverine—on March 3, 2017.

OASIS: SUPERSONIC COMMISSIONED Posters Revealed

A24 COMMISSIONS LIMITED EDITION POSTERS FOR ONE NIGHT ONLY OASIS: SUPERSONIC RELEASE ON OCTOBER 26TH

To celebrate this momentous intersection of music and film, A24 commissioned two artists and one design collective to create posters that imagine the unique documentary release as a musical event. Each artist a fan of Oasis, the works created by Tim Lahan, Justin Hager, and Friends of Type are a direct reaction to the film and the relationship of Liam and Noel Gallagher.



See the posters after the Jump...



“All of us in Friends of Type have been Oasis fans for years. For this poster, the lettering is inspired partly by '60s psychedelic posters and the doodles we’d make of our favorite bands when we were in high school. We wanted it to feel like an imaginary gig (or circus) with all the information being taken from different events, coming together for this ‘One Night Only’ gig.” —Friends of Type




“The thing that most defines Oasis to me besides the huge songs, is the dynamic between Liam and Noel. I wanted to make something that reflected the braggadocio and sibling rivalry but also showed how it gave way to something massively successful yet reckless at the same time.” —Tim Lahan


“I chose to paint Liam and Noel embracing each other in a wrecked hotel room because I like their dynamic of being chaotic and charming at the same time.” —Justin Hager

From the Oscar winning producers of Amy comes this essential and entertaining look at the meteoric rise of the seminal '90s rock band Oasis. The film immerses us in the raucous rock stars’ fast-paced world of electrifying music, wild debauchery, and epic fraternal feuding, weaving never-before-seen concert footage with candid interviews and an astonishing firsthand account of the backstage sibling rivalry that threatened to destroy the band.
