First of all, how does this guy not age? Tom Cruise looks like he’s barely 40, not 53 years old. Scientology is crazy as hell, but you can sign me up for a couple bottles from whatever Fountain of Youth they’re drinking from.
Anyways, the trailer for the second installment of the Jack Reacher franchise is here and if you’re looking for fists to face kinds of fun, than this is your trailer. I was pretty impressed with the first Jack Reacher film, it was your standard action romp with the usual tropes but the film doesn’t apologize for it, and it doesn’t need to. Director Christopher McQuarrie delivers a above average mystery film with A+ action scenes, the fights were hard hitting, bone crunching affairs and the car chase scenes were incredible and almost as bruising as the fights (Days of Thunder anyone)
The title character, Jack Reacher is a leather jacket wearing, muscle car driving homicide detective and former Army Criminal investigator who is really really good at punching people, cliche I know, but Jack lives up to his persona. The supporting cast is serviceable, including my future wife Rosamund Pike. We also get a nice Robert Duval cameo. (Days of Thunder anyone)
Jack Reacher: Never Go Back looks to offer much of the same with a copy/paste plot. If this film is as fun as the first that may not matter. So, enough rambling, here is the trailer for Jack Reacher: Never Go Back starring Tom Cruise, Cobie Smulders, Robert Knepper and Aldis Hodge, directed by Edward Zwick.
