Jack Reacher – Never Go Back


Tom Cruise stars in director Edward Zwick’s action-thriller sequel, based on Lee Child’s crime novel. Ex-military-man-turned-vigilante Jack Reacher (Cruise) agrees to a blind date in Washington after flirting over the phone with Major Susan Turner (Cobie Smulders), who has his old job at US Army headquarters. But when he arrives in the capital, he discovers that she’s been detained for espionage. And when Reacher investigates, he’s falsely accused of murder and sent to the same high-security prison as Turner. Then assassins attempt to murder Turner, so Reacher kills them and breaks her out of jail. The two go on the run – taking with them teenager Samantha (Danika Yarosh), whose life is also in danger because she might be Reacher’s daughter from a past relationship. The trio now need to find evidence to prove that Reacher and the Major are innocent, while evading the cold-blooded assassin (Patrick Heusinger) who’s hot on their trail.
