“So a few years ago, Tom Cruise did his first Jack Reacher movie. I remember it being a perfectly serviceable action movie, but not much else. Therefore I expected pretty much the same out of its sequel, which is basically what we got. Decent low level action film, good chance for Tom Cruise to show off without being too flashy, and nothing that’s gonna stand the test of time too long. But it’s a fine way to kill a couple hours.
There are two really good things that I think came out of this movie though. One was him recapping all his films with James Corden as promo. The second is the realization that Cobie Smulders deserves her own action franchise, because damn! We’ve seen her rock the military attitude as Maria Hill in the MCU, but girl can do that and kick some butt. Wouldn’t it be cool if she had her own original series to rule? Oh I should also point out that this movie seemed to make a point of having a good gender balance in their military characters, which I very much appreciated. But yeah, please please please, Ms Smulders to save the world on screen please
