A January 14, 2013 article entitled "Tom Cruise's 'Jack Reacher (2012)' Unlikely to Get Sequel" published in show-business trade paper 'The Hollywood Reporter' stated: "The film [Jack Reacher (2012)] has grossed [US] $153 million to date and will have to do strong business in Japan, China and Korea if it is to spawn a new franchise for Paramount . . . Paramount is facing a dilemma on whether to embark on a sequel to Tom Cruise's Jack Reacher (2012), and sources tell The Hollywood Reporter [THR] that the film must do exceptional business in key Asian territories where it has yet to open in order to justify another installment in the wannabe franchise . . . But sources close to the studio tell THR the movie needs to gross $250 million worldwide for Paramount to consider moving forward with another installment - a challenging goal." See more »

Tom Cruise is back with his new action thriller "Never Go Back". This time he collaborates with the brilliant director Edward Zwick and the gorgeous Cobie Smulders and trailer also gave some high expectations.
Jack Reacher after disbanding a human trafficking operation and he goes back to the headquarters to meet his long time telephone friend Major Susan Turner. But unfortunately she was framed and jailed. Reacher and Susan Turner teams ups to solve the mystery.
Tom Cruise shines all the way. His screen presence was totally impressive and his action performances were top notch. His energy level is Cobie Smulders was equally impressive as Tom Cruise. But all the other characters were actually dull and was nothing.
The storyline was an okay-ish but clichéd in most parts. It was predictable and the narration was pretty weak and slow. Some of the action scenes and car chase was good.
A forgettable Sequel to the great action movie Jack Reacher.
An action thriller which lacks thrills
5.7 on 10
As a TC fan, this one was disappointing.
