Jack Reacher: Never Go Back

In which Tom Cruise tries to prove to both himself and viewers that he is still capable of doing the same action movie stuff.

Well I’m here to issue a cease and desist notice, Tom. It’s time to move on to other things. We know you can do them (Magnolias, Tropic Thunder). You just have to let go of Running Tom and embrace Acting Tom.

The previous Reacher movie was at least mildly entertaining with the loner hero madly going about his curious business which involved Werner Herzog as I recall. This time he ends up babysitting and playing Mom and Dad with Cobie Smulders (whose character doesn’t actually get a first name on iMDB). It was excruciating.

That’ll do Tom. That’ll do.
