4.0 out of 5 stars Jack Ryan begins, 5 Feb 2014
This review is from: Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
Jack Ryan is recruited by the CIA after his millitary career is cut short after a mission to Afghanistan goes wrong and he is lucky to escape alive. He is sent to Moscow on a routine mission to investigate Victor Chevrin who is being accused of funding terrorrism. Jack Ryan, America's answer to James Bond is given a complete makeover here in this enjoyable thriller. You don't have to have seen the previous films, Hunt For Red October, Patriot Games, Clear And Present Danger and The Sum Of All Fears to enjoy this but Jack Ryan Shadow Recruit, the first film not to based on a Tom Clancy novel in this series while enjoyable and technically a 3 and a half star rating but since Amazon don't let you give half ratings it has been boosted to 4 stars mainly on the strength of the film's cast and director isn't quite as good as the previous films. Chris Pine while not as good as previous Ryans Alec Baldwin and Harrison Ford being the best is still likeable and is backed by a good cast with Kiera Knightley as Ryan's girlfriend Cathy, Kevin Costner as the CIA agent who recruits Ryan both good and Kenneth Brannagh who also directs making a good, sinister villain.
