Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit


jackryanshadowrecruitYoung Afghanistan War veteran Jack Ryan (Chris Pine) is recruited by the CIA to work covertly in a Wall Street company, but suddenly the analyst is turned into an operative and sent to Moscow on a mission. A reboot of Tom Clancy’s character that tries to turn Jack Ryan into Jason Bourne. Kenneth Branagh lacks the skills to do it in an exciting way, and without a genuine interest in security politics that formed the basis of Clancy’s novels, there is no point in using the name “Jack Ryan”. Never dull, but desperately mediocre.

Screenplay: Adam Cozad, David Koepp. Cast: Chris Pine (Jack Ryan), Keira Knightley (Cathy Muller), Kevin Costner (William Harper), Kenneth Branagh (Viktor Cherevin), Nonso Anozie, Colm Feoreā€¦ Peter Andersson.
