    Verdict - Never Go In !

    Jack Reacher - Never Go BackWatch trailerRelease date : October 21, 2016

    By never go in , I mean wherever you see this movie playing just don't walk in . I walked in only for the sake of Tom Cruise and Coby Smulders . Both of them have this what are we doing in this movie look on their faces right from the beginning.

    Frankly out here in India some of the KC Bokadia movies like Phoole Bane Angarey have better screenplay.At least there are some dialogues where you can clap. The scene where the hunter
    ( this great cold blooded assassin) proceeds to kill another character called Colonel Morgan. Trust me the way that scene is executed you feel as if the director told both the dudes - " hey look this guy will walk in have a cool sounding conversation with you dear Morgan then you need to act all worked up and this guy will casually kill you , just talk to each other and this guy will then kill you ok ? on the way out of the studio take your pay check too !" . The scene is executed with such tacky lines and such hollow acting . This is just one example of how shabby and shallow the screenplay is.

    You actually do end up wondering do stars like Coby Smulders and Tom Cruise who is associated with that super detective series called MI ,even read when they get into such movies.

    This one was packaged as a detective-military weapons espionage thriller and is total drag of a movie again to draw a comparison with Bollywood , Mithun's Suraksha from the 1970s had more thrill value.

    I think they actually have a superstition in Hollywood that if Tom Cruise runs around in streets like a crazy hungry squirrel it will work at the box office. So roughly every 12 minutes in this movie Tom Cruise stars running and probably for added effect they ask Coby Smulders also runs after him.Of course some bad guys join the run and whoever runs into whoever can shoot whoever kind of scenes in this one.

    Then there is a plot of teenagd lost girl thrown in who is probably Jack Reacher's daughter from one of his earlier life episodes. Typical scenes of she flicking a bag and calling from her cell phone and using a credit card so that the bad guys can trace her from the grid are here in this movie - yup that's the brilliance of the screenplay writer for you . I mean no one told him that kids today have watched either the net or the matrix or enemy of the state kind of movies a billion times to avoid using credit cards in a movie situation ? that too when the world's best tech assassin team is on your look out?

    If you thought The Accountant from last week was a torcher than trust me I repeat my warning based on the title of this movie - never go in.

    Half a star , actually quarter for Coby and a quarter for Tom !
