It's not all bad in fairness, in fact there is one thing I will pride the film on; it's approach to humour was surprisingly hit more than miss, and injected the script with just a tiny bit of life, thinly dispersed throughout the two hour runtime. And, thank goodness, the final twenty minutes brings the film some much needed intensity and momentum, even if that intensity does lack in comparison to its genre stablemates, with an interestingly Halloween-themed finale saving the film from being a complete shambles. Oh, and Madalyn Horcher's Sergeant Leach could have been interesting if she was given more than two minutes of screen time, but alas.
Summary: Jack Reacher: Never Go Back is film-making at its absolute laziest, with poorly-written characters and a storyline helped no further by a surprisingly weak and uncommitted lead performance from the once reliable Tom Cruise.
Highlight: The humour was okay?
