» Jack Reacher 2: No Way Back » by «Last Samurai» director Edward Zwick is a whole tad weaker than its predecessor » Jack Reacher «, also starring Tom Cruise . Above all, the action film shows a completely different interpretation of the character, as we know it from the Amazon Prime Video series “ Reacher ” and above all from the series of novels on which all titles are based. Yes, the Tom Cruise Reacher has little to do with the muscular giant that author Lee Child once invented and who has ensured law and order in more than two dozen books.
But the author of these lines, as a huge fan of this book series, still has fun with the cruise version and also with «Kein Weg zurück» and would therefore actually like to show you the TV broadcast this Sunday, May 8th at 8:15 p.m recommend on ProSieben , but be careful …
ProSieben cuts Jack Reacher again
… because as in the past, the action heroes are only available in a shortened form on the private broadcaster. The scissors are used 23 times. A total of 1 minute and 45 seconds are missing in order to be able to show the film, which is actually only released from the age of 16, in a defused version at 8:15 p.m. That’s annoying, since in the past ZDF, for example, simply broadcast the film later and showed it uncut.
Fortunately, there is a streaming alternative: Amazon Prime Video offers an unabridged subscription to “Jack Reacher 2: No Way Back”. Because the predecessor «Jack Reacher» and of course the already mentioned «Reacher» series, which was produced by Prime Video itself, are also available there, you can give yourself the full roar with the lone fighter there.

And even if the second movie is the weakest of all these titles, I can recommend it to you in the uncut version. Yes, the action sequel is not special enough, the plot is not only knitted in the usual simple way, but also too predictable. But Tom Cruise is once again great in the role and Marvel star Cobie Smulders is a strong competitor at his side as a new addition. In addition to a lot of entertainment and fast-paced action, we also get very convincing and touching moments between Reacher and his supposed daughter Samantha ( Danika Yarosh ).
«Jack Reacher 2: No Turning Back»: Does the hero have a daughter?
What? Reacher might have a daughter? That’s exactly what «No Way Back» is up for debate. Because the ex-soldier and loner is suddenly sued by a woman who claims he is a father. And Samantha bears some similarities to him. This distracts Reacher, which he really doesn’t need right now. Because he is also blamed for murder. Together with Major Susan Turner (Smulders), who also wants to frame someone, he flees. Together they must find out what is going on and uncover a conspiracy within the military…
