Jack Reacher: Never Go Back ... The French Trailer

You may have heard Jack Reacher: Never Go Back is getting beat here in the states by Tyler Perry and his latest Madea movie, Boo! A Madea Halloween. My husband read one review that called it a poor man’s Mission Impossible, so while we enjoyed Tom Cruise in the first Jack Reacher film, and it’s playing in theaters all over the world right now, we didn’t see it. We took a two and a half hour walk around our hood instead, marveling at the number of people out walking like we were. It was one of those beautiful still-warm California autumn days and we weren’t the only ones enjoying it. The tables at Cafe Midi were full but since we were sweaty from walking and not exactly looking French-chic in our tres casual walking clothes, we decided not to stop at the French cafe and hit Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf instead. Is it silly at my age to let a stylish French cafe intimidate me? Could I not just pull up a charming little chair under an umbrella and order a cafe au lait without worrying about being on the best dressed list? No, I could not! 

Instead I got my French fix from this trailer for Never Go Back dubbed in Fran├žais proving, as always, almost everything sounds better in French, including Tom Cruise.



Scanning review headlines here in the US, it’s hard not to say we might “Never Go Back’’ to see Tom Cruise as Jack Reacher.

Boo! Cuz, you know, I’m a Tom Cruise fan. I’d still like to see it but it sounds so lackluster I’ll probably wait until it comes to cable TV.

Did you get out to see Never Go Back on opening weekend? What did you think?

  1. Sim, I agree that it definitely sounds better in French, and you know that I didn't see the movie on opening weekend. I'm sure you'll go to see it though.

  2. What an interesting way to look at books and film adaptations!
    So glad I found your blog. I read so many books, love films.....but never take the time to watch the adaptation. I must make a challenge for myself in 2017 make a concentrate effort to do this. There is much to discover between book and the story on the big screen! Thanks for this blogpost!
