OPIS FILMU: ‌‌Jack Reacher: Nigdy nie wracaj jest ekranizacją jednej z ciekawych książek autorstwa Lee Childa o przygodach byłego majora. Tym razem Reacher wraca do swojej matczynej siedziby – 110. jednostki żandarmerii wojskowej, w której niegdyś służył. Ma się tam zobaczyć z major Susan Turner, okazuje się jednak, że kobieta zniknęła, a na jej miejscu siedzi urodzony biurokrata – podpułkownik Morgan. Jack dowiaduje się, że pani major została aresztowana pod zarzutem szpiegostwa, co według niego jest mało prawdopodobne. Postanawia rozpocząć śledztwo na własną rękę.

PLOT: After dismantling a human trafficking ring, former military investigator turned vigilante drifter Jack Reacher returns to his old military headquarters to meet Major Susan Turner, who has been assisting him in his investigations, only to learn from his old rival, Colonel Sam Morgan, that Turner has accused of espionage and detained.

Reacher’s old friend, Colonel Bob Moorcroft, reveals that there is evidence that Turner is involved in the murders of two soldiers in Afghanistan, but Reacher believes she is being framed. Moorcroft also reveals an old acquaintance of Reacher’s, Candice Dayton, has filed a paternity suit against him, claiming he’s the biological father of her 15-year-old daughter, Samantha Dayton. Moorcroft is later killed by an assassin known as “The Hunter”.

Reacher reaches out to Samantha, but she rebuffs him, believing he’s after her biological mother due to her past as a drug addict. Reacher is later framed for Moorcroft’s murder and detained by Morgan alongside Turner. Assassins arrive to kill them, but Reacher neutralizes them, rescues Turner and they escape to Morgan’s house, having deduced he’s involved in the conspiracy, and extract information. After they leave, the Hunter kills Morgan and frames Reacher.

Reacher and Turner uncover surveillance pictures of Samantha and surmise she’s in danger, arriving at her home to find her foster parents dead and a terrified Samantha hiding in the kitchen. Upon learning from a friend, Sergeant Leach, that he’s also been framed for Morgan’s death, Reacher decides to escort Samantha to a private school for protection, but quickly deduces she was spared to be used against him and decides to bring her along. Reacher, Turner and Samantha travel to New Orleans in search of Daniel Prudhomme, the only eyewitness to the murders that Turner has been framed for. They find him in a derelict warehouse filled with drug addicts and learn that Prudhomme is connected to Parasource, a private military organization that is trying to cover up the murders. Reacher contacts Turner’s friend, Major Anthony Espin, to move Prudhomme into custody, but they are ambushed by assassins. Prudhomme is killed, while Reacher rescues Espin and finds out that the assassins are Parasource contractors. Reacher then admits to Samantha he might be her father.

Reacher and Turner confront Parasource’s CEO, General James Harkness, and learn that he framed Turner, who had been investigating his activities, for the murders of two soldiers who discovered that Harkness was selling weapons to insurgents and smuggling opium into the United States. Espin and his men arrive and arrest Harkness, clearing Reacher’s and Turner’s names. Upon learning of Harkness’ arrest, the Hunter locates and kidnaps Samantha to lure Reacher into a confrontation. He threatens to kill Samantha, but she manages to escape and steal his gun. Reacher then tackles the Hunter and they have a vicious fight that culminates with Reacher breaking the Hunter’s neck.

Turner is reinstated in her old position and Reacher promises to keep in touch. While talking to Samantha at a diner, Samantha reveals that the waitress that had been serving them is her biological mother and that Reacher can’t be her father as they didn’t recognize each other. Reacher and Samantha reluctantly part and Reacher hitches a ride to another town.
