This month, two Hollywood movies that stand out and impressed us are Jack Reacher: Never Go Back and Masterminds. While Tom Cruise starrer, Jack Reacher was a pure Action thriller, Masterminds starring Zach Galifianakis and Kristen Wiig was an Action comedy. Both of them managed to drew audiences to the theatres.
Let’s have a look how Jack Reacher: Never Go Back and Mastermind fared at the box office.
1. Jack Reacher: Never Go Back
Based on the 18th novel of Lee Child, this Tom Cruise starrer was one of the much-awaited Hollywood films of the year, which released earlier this month. Cruise reprised his role of Jack Reacher from its prequel in 2012. In the film, Reacher is on a mission to uncover the truth behind a major government conspiracy involving soldiers who are being killed. He leave no stone unturned to prove the innocence of Army Major Susan Turner, who heads his old investigative unit, who is now arrested for treason. The film was received very well at the box office both by the critics and masses. Tom Cruise returned amidst action with this film. If you enjoyed Tom Cruise in Mission Impossible and Knight and Day, Jack Reacher would definitely interest you. Tom Cruise’s over-the- top action and nonchalant personality always make for good entertainment. Don’t you agree more?
Directed by Jared Hess and starring Zach Galifiankis, Masterminds which released last week was an amazing action comedy. Based on a true story, the movie follows the riotous misadventures of unlikely anti-hero David Ghantt, played by Zach Galifianakis as he pulls off one of the largest robberies in U.S. history. Zach carried the whole film on his shoulder. He has nailed it this time as well. The movie picked up well in its first week and is expected to do good in the coming weeks as well. Not really an action film, Masterminds movie is more of a slapstick comedy. Even with the unoriginal script, the writers Chris Bowman, Hubbel Palmer and Emiley Spivey, weaved this comedy in a very convincing manner. Zach Galifianakis fans should not miss this fill. After all, he never fails to amaze his fans with his brilliant comic skills. Masterminds will definitely tickle your funny bone and give you enough lol moments. You can very well watch this film with a bunch of your goofy friends over this weekend.
