Welcome to our belated 24th episode of the main podcast. In this episode we take a look at Jack Reacher: Never Go Back and the classic film is The Usual Suspects.
The second installment of the Jack Reacher franchise has arrived in the form of Jack Reacher: Never Go Back. The film follows Reacher as he attempts to clear the name of an army major accused of treason and, subsequently, his own name when the baddies attempt to stitch him up on a murder charge). The film was directed by Edward Zwick, the screenplay was by Richard Wenk and is based on the novel by Lee Child. The film stars Tom Cruise, Cobie Smulders, Danika Yarosh, Aldis Hodge, Patrick Heusinger and Holt McCallany amongst others.
In The Usual Suspects, the sole survivor of a gun battle and explosion on a ship tells an investigator of the events that led to that point in time. The film was directed by Bryan Singer and written by Christopher McQuarrie. The film starred Kevin Spacey, Gabriel Byrne, Stephen Baldwin, Benicio Del Toro, Kevin Pollak, Chazz Palminterri and Pete Postlethwaite amongst others.
