If you aren’t a fan of Lee Child’s Jack Reacher novels, you should go pick one up. They’re the perfect summer reads, and Jack Reacher is one of beach-lit’s most fantastic characters.
Of course, everyone flipped when Tom Cruise was cast to play him (Reacher is 6’6″ in the books), but he availed himself well in the first adaptation, based off One Shot.
In this new film, Never Go Back, Reacher is dragged into his MP past when a former colleague and friend of his has been arrested and charged with espionage.
