Out of 10 Massively Disjointed Disappointments
When a peaceful settlement on the edge of a distant moon finds itself threatened by the armies of a tyrannical ruling force, Kora (Sofia Boutella), a mysterious stranger living among the villagers, becomes their best hope for survival. Tasked with finding trained fighters who will unite with her in making an impossible stand against the Mother World, Kora assembles a small band of warriors – outsiders, insurgents, peasants and orphans of war from different worlds who share a common need for redemption and revenge. As the shadow of an entire Realm bears down on the unlikeliest of moons, a battle over the fate of a galaxy is waged, and in the process, a new army of heroes is formed.

Neagley and Dixon pay a visit to New Age’s facility in Denver attempting to see the missiles, only to find that they have already been taken away in a truck. One of AM’s henchmen stages the breakdown of another truck on the first truck’s route and kills its driver. He opens the truck’s trailer, revealing three other henchmen and the missiles. Neagley and Dixon who have been chasing the first truck come upon the scene, just after the henchmen have switched the trailers. The henchmen try to kill Neagley and Dixon. The first henchman drives off with the missiles before Neagley and Dixon kill the other three. In the paperwork Neagley and Dixon received from the New Age’s Denver facility manager, they learn that Swan had allowed the missiles to leave New Age. Meanwhile, Reacher and O’Donnell visit Washington D.C. and make a trip to Homeland Security for information on AM. Senator Lavoy catches up with Reacher and offers his assistance in stopping a possible terrorist attack. The team members then head back to New York for Franz’s funeral.

During the funeral, two hitmen try to kill the team members. One of the hitmen is killed; Reacher and Russo chase and catch the other. He reveals that Swan paid him to kill the members of the team; when he goes to an abandoned building to collect his payment, the building explodes.
