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

In a little in-joke of dialogue timing, Reacher's somewhat unusual name is spoken for the first time in the film by the Sheriff, read out loud at the very moment that he reaches across the diner counter to examine the military ID that was tossed there. See more »
While on-board the aircraft, Samantha's hair on the right hand side switches from behind her ear to in front of her ear numerous times during the conversation with Reacher and Turner. See more »

Pardon me. Excuse me. Step aside please.

This is worse than part 1. Part was wasn't too bad, but this is plain awful. It is wrong on many levels - the plot is incredibly weak, the acting is awful, and the script is straight out of a 70s B movie.
In an alternate universe this movie star Jean Claude Van Dame. However in this universe Tom Cruise appears to have failed miserably, as did direction, script writing etc.
Corny lines like, "They ran out of Medal" when referring to how heavily awarded this former MP is, happen to be just one example amongst the many.
Then there is the plot, the pointless proactive attempt by the bad guys to lock up and kill Major Smulders, follow Jack Reacher, create a professional baddie that takes things personally.
This may well be the tipping point decline in the career of Tom Cruz, he just looked past it, slow, completely unbelievable.
I won't say much more, this movie isn't worth wasting the time on the critique.
