Movie Review: ‘Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit’

Paramount goes back to the beginning (as is the trend lately with franchise characters) with an actor who’s already used to doing exactly that, Chris Pine,. Instead of treading the halls of a space ship, this time he walking through Wall Street as Tom Clancy’s spy hero, Jack Ryan.

Yes, I said Wall Street. I know, doesn’t seem like the world’s most exciting beginning for a spy, but don’t worry, eventually the whole story moves to Russia with a Bond villain-esque Kenneth Branagh, Kevin Costner as a experienced and weary handler, and Keira Knightley as the world’s most needy girlfriend.

Thrill to the danger as the Unusual Suspects choose to accept this dangerous mission of reviewing Kenneth Branagh’s (that’s right, he directed it too) “Jack Ryan”. Your agents for this case will be Chris, Beau, Martin and Elliot. Good Luck.
