|Oh, Bubba the sheriff just made a big mistake!|
Two things are gonna happen; Tom Cruise's post-ass whuppin meal is going to be interrupted, and a phone is going to ring. Before Jack Reacher beats you down, he's going to let you know exactly how he's going to do it with his cool and confident voice. His old army buddy who's now a Major (Cobie Smulders, Marvel's The Avengers), is set up for a crime that she didn't commit. So, Jack Reacher is going to free her from prison and handle the men responsible in violent and effective ways. Not an easy task, but Jack Reacher will NEVER GO BACK!!!
My Prediction- Two things have happened since I saw 2012's Jack Reacher; I don't remember any of it, and I don't give a shit. All this is is a modern day version of Billy Jack (four barely watchable films in the 60's & 70's) with a touch of The General's Daughter (1999). Two more things are about to happen; Jack Reacher: Never Go Back is going to be a Piece Of Shit, and I'm going to be out $11.00. It might be fun though. Or maybe I'm just "Reach"ing?! LOL
Mike's Take -
Welp, since we forgot to do a Piece of Shit for The Accountant, we made ourselves feel shame and then we stood in a corner for 15 minutes until we were forgiven. So, we're sorry.
But we're not sorry for Jack Reacher. Now, I haven't seen the first one, mostly because, I thought it was going to suck. Another book-into-movie disaster that had little to no plot, limited action and was a soft "R" or possibly hard PG-13. lol. hard. I'm not a fan of Tom Cruise, I think some of his movies are lousy and the rest are just OK, with few exceptions - the Mission:Impossible series and that character he played on Tropic Thunder, Top Gun and Legend (I'm sure there are others, but really be honest with yourself about his movies). Let's face it, he is a big box office draw and his movies consistently perform well.
Jack Reacher, on the other hand, is a piece of hot wet dumpster fire garbage that has been left in the desert heat of Tijuana, Mexico that people keep putting cabbage and baby diapers in. That's my pre-review.
One more thing - Joe keeps adding &'s to his reviews and they keep looking like &;amp and he wonders why. Because I don't know why Joe. I don't know. Why do you keep using it Joe? Why on (insert deity here) Green Earth do you insist on using the & when AND will work just fine? Why waste the finger movements? Does it make the reviews and other things we write look smarter? No, no it doesn't. So stop it.
I mean it.
