Unfortunately for Jack Reacher, average doesn't cut it in this day and age and this movie creaks under the weight of all of the explosions and vehicle chases gone by.

Jack Reacher goes on the run to clear his name, and in the process discovers a secret from his past.

Other films in the pantheon include his film-stealing cameo in Tropic Thunder, his breakout role in Top Gun, and as a rockstar in musical Rock Of Ages.

After all, when you're one of the biggest stars on the planet, it's usually a one-man show.

While I don't believe the time has fully passed for Jack Reacher and his ilk, I do think you have to be something exceptional to stand out.

"I'm not ready, but I'll do it", Cruise said laughing. Following the impressive Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation past year, arguably one of Cruise's most impressive action films to date, Never Go Back isn't able to be almost as memorable or entertaining as some of his other, more recent outings.
