Jack Reacher must uncover the truth behind a major government conspiracy in order to clear his name. On the run as a fugitive from the law, Reacher uncovers a potential secret from his past that could change his life forever.
After accomplishing the assignment of dismantling a human trafficking organization, the former military and drifter Jack Reacher goes to Washington to invite his liaison, Major Susan Turner, to have dinner with him. However, he meets her substitute, Colonel Sam Morgan, who explains that Major Turner has been arrested and accused of espionage. Jack seeks out her veteran lawyer, Colonel Bob Moorcroft, who explains that Major Turner has also been accused of the murders of two soldiers in Afghanistan. Further, he also tells Jack he is being sued, accused by a woman of being the father of her fifteen year-old daughter, Samantha. When Moorcroft is murdered, Jack is accused of being the killer and sent to a prison. He sees that Turner and he have been framed and also that Turner will be killed by two assassins. However, he rescues her and they flee. Soon, they realize that there is a conspiracy involving military people from the army and a government contractor that is a powerful arms dealer... Written by

2nd movie Tom Cruise filmed in New Orleans/Louisiana. First was Interview with the Vampire in 1994. See more »
In the Prison escape scene, Jack and the Major escape when central control opens the doors to allow the LT in. In reality, those secure doors are like an airlock, she would have entered, the door behind would completely close and lock before they could even activate the next door ( computer controlled). At no point would both doors be open simultaneously, not even for a second. This is to avoid exactly what happened in the movie. See more »

My wife convinced me to go, even though i didn't not much like the first Jack Reacher movie. I do like Tom cruise in general though.
The plot is very generic, i mean like we haven't seen something oh so very similar a thousand times. No surprises along the way.
The action was extremely poor, Jack and his sidekick consistently not carrying weapons even though their opponents are and even when they beat down their opponents (who have guns) they don't then pick up the gun and take it with them (ok maybe they did once). There was a scene where Jack is fighting the professional killer,
The dialog was boringly average, as if to just stretch out the movie, most of it not really having much to do with the plot or moving the movie along.
The girl is hyper annoying, keeps getting into trouble, Jack has to save her yadda yadda yadda, except if Jack had acted as smart as he is supposed to be, he would have made sure she didn't get into said trouble in first place.
Worst movie i have been to in quite a while.
