Customer Review

on 29 June 2014
First the good bit - the blu ray looks and sounds fantastic and that's about it.

Did the world need another Jack Ryan re boot? Already on the down ward law of diminishing returns curve Chris Pine makes Ben Afflecks attempt seem Oscar worthy. Shadow Recruit is a charisma free zone with a typical 21st century handsome but vacuous leading man. Branagh stars and directs - oh dear. So he didn't have the luxury of a trilogy (thank goodness) to tell this story so he over compensates with action sequences that are frantic and yet tedious. The highlight of the movie is the attempted hotel room murder akin to a scene in Marathon Man . Takes half an hour to reach this point and that's the best bit. A disproportionate amount of time is spent on the dreary Pine/Knighley relationship. The bomb plot is wrapped up with amazing powers of deduction by our hero with the help of his CIA buddies typing frantically away on their laptops. Costner pops up to phone in for his pay cheque.
