Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit (2014)


Kenneth Branagh


Chris Pine

Kevin Costner

Keira Knightly


Jack Ryan, as a young covert CIA analyst, uncovers a Russian plot to crash the U.S. economy with a terrorist attack.


Jack Ryan is not an action star. He’s an analyst. He’s smart, he uses is brain, he’s not jumping off of cars and all that other crap. At least in the books.

If you go into this movie and know nothing about Jack Ryan you’ll probably enjoy it. If I think of it as not a Jack Ryan movie I enjoyed it. But the facts are Jack Ryan is the name and there is just enough there to make me remember what it’s supposed to be.

2/5 for Jack Ryan book fans

3/5 for everyone else
