Jack Reacher: Never Go Back
Part I: Examining Cinematography
Discuss your film’s point of view.
The film is shot from a third person’s point of view. Most actions movies are shot this way
because it is the best way to show all of the action that is happening.
How are camera angles used within your film? Be sure to point to at least two specific
A bird’s point of view is used when the main character, Jack Reacher, is attacked by four
mysterious men that had been following him. They chose the bird’s point of view for the
beginning of this scene in order to represent him as being represented vulnerable. However, as

love and passion between Sam and Jack, and the green is representing renewal and growth. It
fills us with positive energy and has a calming effect.
