"Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit" (2014 release; 105 min.) brings a reinvented Jack Ryan to the screen, this time as played by Chris Pine, he of the "Star Trek" reboot franchise (as Capt. Kirk). As the movie opens, we see Ryan on the campus of the London School of Economics when 9/11 happens. Ryan volunteers for the Marine Corps and is deployed in Afghanistan, where he gets severely injured during a helicopter attack (check out the Bengals/Ravens jokes before the attack!). During rehab, he gets to know Cathy Muller (played by Keira Knightley), who is about to graduate from med school. Flash forward 10 years: Ryan is now working for the CIA as a financial analyst at a Wall Street investment bank, and he notices weird financial transactions going on in Russia. He reports it to his CIA boss Tom Harper (played by Kevin Costner), and off goes Ryan to Moscow to investigate further. To tell you more would spoil your viewing experience, you'll just have to see for yourself how it all plays out.

Couple of comments: first, this film is directed by none other than Kenneth Branagh (who also plays "the bad guy"). When I see his name, I usually think of William Shakespeare and theater, not action movies. Not that he doesn't do a pretty good job at it. Second, it really takes a jump of faith to see Chris Pine as Jack Ryan, for one thing, he just looks too young! Third, Keira Knightley oozes charm (and beauty) as Ryan's girlfriend/fiancee. Fourth, as to the action itself, something seemed a little off once in a while. For example, the crucial break-in sequence (where Ryan penetrates the office of the bad guy) goes off way too easily. Last but not least, there are some great one-liners in the movie which bring some much needed light touches.

'Jack Ryan'(Chris Pine) a marine stationed in 'Afghanistan' is injured in a helicopter
crash.
.His recovery is a long and difficult road, but determination and encouragement
determination and encouragement from a 'Doctor' brings the desired outcome.
As a marine he is well respected, he has a high intelligence level, because of
this he is offered the opportunity to continue serving his country by 'C.I.A agent
'Thomas Harper'.(Kevin Costner)
'Jack' will complete his economics course and join a financial institution as a analyst,
but will be an under-cover operative.
'Cathy' (Keira Knightley) the doctor he'd met whilst in hospital is now his fiancée, but is
blissfully unaware of 'Jack's' involvement with the C.I.A.
'Jack' notices irregularity's in the Russian side of the businesses financial activity, and
realizes it needs investigating.
As compliance officer he decides to travel to Russia with the intention of investigating
a financial plot.
He is met at the airport a man who claims to be designated to escort him to the hotel
and be his driver, when reaching the hotel room the man attempts to kill 'Jack' .........
Not a great welcome to Russia.
'Thomas Harper' and a team are in Moscow to watch over 'Jacks' activity.
When going to the office the next day, it seems the Russians are a couple of steps
ahead of the game, 'Jack' appears to have nothing left to audit.
'Viktor Cherevin' informs 'Jack' that 'his fiancée 'Cathy' is waiting for him at the hotel,
her presence will mean he has more than just himself to watch out for.

Good movie, it did take a while to get going. The first half an hour was a bit slow but the rest of the movie made up for that. Chris Pine showed he could act, Keira Knightley and Kevin Costner both did a good job in the supporting cast.

The movie starts off with Jack/Chris in LSE (London School of Economics), where he see the Twin Towers attack. Deciding to leave university and join the millitery, he becomes Marine. Injured in combat he is visited by the CIA with an offer to join them as an analyst. After 10 years his he is forced back into the field. The action is good, more realistic that the average action movie. The explosion are a bit of a led down as the are quite obivously CG an not in a good way. However all in all a good all round movie.

An enjoyable Saturday night movie, this is never going to reach the heights of The Hunt for Red October, but as always Chris Pine is a watchable lead. The Jack Ryan of the past, thoughtful rather than an action hero, gets somewhat of an update in that he is now - Mission Impossible style - a fantastic motor cycle rider and high speed driver. If one accepts that this is Good Vs Evil writ large in lowest common denominator terms, it is a pleasing 105 minutes. If one is looking for deep meaning and revelations on the Cold War that never went away its probably not for you.

The film is paced quite slowly to begin but does gain momentum towards a rather rushed ending. Actor/director Sir Kenneth Brannagh employs varying styles from zip pans to frenetic edits along the way.

There are some enjoyable press kit extras that you will watch once only and the film will be one of those that will, once viewed, sit on teh shelf and not be a go to movie when you need something fresh. I enjoyed it, I've seen it, I probably won't rush to watch it again, but it was cheaper than a cinema ticket and there were less people using their phones whilst I watched it than I would get at the cinema!
