    interesting direction by douglas that gets good mileage out of a slightly offbeat plot, but chock full of silly things. really obvious miniature shots, terrible prop guns and an atrociously uncool approach from bruce dern to being an outlaw. the man holds his pistol with two hands for god's sake, how much of a threat can he be.

    Jack Reacher: Never Go Back

    ★½

    a perfunctory attempt at a cash grab that plays every action beat just as you would predict, and is entirely devoid of any sort of personality.

    kubrick's 2001 filtered through a neveldine/taylor sensibility. the tree of life bastardised at the hands of vulgar auterism. who even knew besson was capable of this; super woman who reinvents knowledge and being as we know it all the while dispensing mere male obstacles with minimal bother. johansson is one of the best working actresses today, she arcs from truly terrified, although somehow not quite entirely at the mercy of her captors - to ruthlessly efficient non human, 99% a robot in all but physiology and a rare inkling of merciful humanity. perfect.
