About the Movie
Based on the CIA analyst created by espionage master Tom Clancy, “Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit” is a blistering action thriller that follows Ryan (Chris Pine, “Star Trek”) from his quiet double-life as a veteran-turned-Wall Street executive to his all-out initiation as a hunted American agent on the trail of a massive terrorist plot in Moscow.
Actually, it was pretty good. If you can forgive ‘telescoped’ timeframes and amazing feats of technology, then you’ll enjoy the tension that the movie builds up. It was actually pretty good. And after my second beer, I was enjoying the story even more.
It's a good film. Other films that use the same character are; Patriot Games and Clear and Present Danger (both older films). The action speeds up at the end.
OK but not great
Some action scenes were quite entertaining, sadly the plot wasn't. He was apparently in the US Marines for approx 18months, (2.5months of that would be basic training). And yet he is now a killing machine!! Yeah Right! Don't worry, this is not much of a spoiler as there are many more plot-holes in there :)
