Customer Reviews

Great action, good acting.
Jeff Harkins
Chris Pine is perfect as Jack Ryan and Kevin Costner and Kiera Knightly do well in supporting roles.

Not bad if you like that always too predictable action movie.

Shadow Recruit is a modern day reboot of the Jack Ryan stories which are based on Tom Clancy's books. If you're new to the world of Jack Ryan, then Shadow Recruit may be a halfway decent spy thriller. However, my first exposure to Jack Ryan was the 1990 film The Hunt for Red October (with Sean Connery and Alec Baldwin), and in comparison Shadow Recruit feels like a made-for-TV movie.

The film starts off strong, giving you a glimpse of past events that shape Ryan's life (which the older films don't do). From there, the story gets fast-paced and is full of intrigue, gun fights and car chases. Chris Pine does a good job playing the CIA analyst who's out of his element. The rest of the cast is stellar - Kevin Costner, Keira Knightley, Kenneth Branagh (who also directs). Costner is good as the grizzled CIA veteran. Branagh makes a compelling villain. While Knightley features prominently in this film, I thought her role was a step down for her considering all her previous roles. But ultimately, the film falls short. The actors' fine performances can't compensate for the run-of-the-mill story.

I assume this film just serves to build up the character of Jack Ryan for the inevitable sequels where bigger, better adventures await our hero. It's not a bad movie, but not great either. Watch it if you're a Chris Pine fan. But for the real Jack Ryan, check out The Hunt for Red October, Patriot Games, and Clear and Present Danger.

I've been a fan of the Jack Ryan series (Both film and print) for several years and as someone who was really disappointed in The Sum of All Fears and Ben Affleck's turn as Jack, Shadow Recruit felt like a breath of fresh air to me.

Sure, it's not "The Greatest Movie Ever Made" and it won't win any awards, but it is a whole lot of fun.

Chris Pine does a very good job in the role of Jack.. When I first heard of this casting, I really didn't think too much of it, as it had been several years since I had first seen The Sum of All Fears and I completely erased any traces of Affleck's awful (my opinion) portrayal from my mind. I was pleasantly surprised by Pine. He reminded me a bit of Harrison Ford (Who is my favorite incarnation of Ryan) in Clear and Present Danger. Kevin Costner is pretty good as Tom Harper as well. I didn't really care for Keira Knightley as Cathy. but she was OK.

The script itself is pretty much standard action/suspense/thriller type material; so not fantastic and definitely better acted than it is written, but it entertains.

In all, I'd recommend Shadow Recruit to new Jack Ryan fans as well as longtime fans who are willing to keep an open mind and let the movie entertain.

"You're not just an analyst anymore. You're operational now." Jack Ryan (Pine) is a student studying in England on September 11th. That act causes him to drop out and join the military. When he is involved in an attack he thinks his career is over. During his rehab he is approached by Thomas Harper (Costner) with an offer too good to refuse. When he notices something that could bring down the entire country he is thrust headfirst into the dangerous world of the C.I.A. I was really looking forward to this movie because I liked the other four Jack Ryan movies and I am a huge Kevin Costner fan. This one did have something the others were missing though. Wall to wall action and the ability to keep you tense and wondering what will happen next. I'm not saying the others were boring because I did like them but this one really had the feel of a Bond type movie. This is also, for lack of a better term, an origin movie showing how Jack Ryan went from student to C.I.A. operative. Branagh is a great villain in this and the movie really moves quick. This is a popcorn movie but is tense and has a fully developed story that I highly recommend. Overall, in my opinion this is the best Ryan movie made so far. I give this an A-.

Chris Pine, known for his role as young Captain Kirk in two previous “Star Trek” entries, plays a CIA analyst Jack Ryan, a character once played by Alec Baldwin (“The Hunt for Red October”), Harrison Ford (“Patriot Games” “Clear and Present Danger”) and Ben Affleck (“The Sum of All Fears”). It’s been about ten years since we met him on screen last time. Is the new film worth that wait? Well, it depends.

In the first twenty minutes of “Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit” we see how young Jack Ryan went to Afghanistan after the 9/11 terrorist attack, how he met his girlfriend Cathy Muller (Keira Knightley), and how was recruited by a CIA superior Thomas Harper (Kevin Costner). The pace is too fast, with no memorable episode about who Jack Ryan is, or what he is capable of.

Things get more interesting when he travels from Wall Street to Moscow to uncover the mystery surrounding the accounts of Viktor Cherevin (Kenneth Branagh). I hate to spoil the film, so let me just say that the third act has a lot of action.

The problem is that the action scenes (and most plot devices) are familiar and even generic. They are competently done and never boring, but they don’t have to be about Jack Ryan, who is supposed to be an analyst. Chris Pine is fine as ever, but frankly, his character (often so careless and very lucky) doesn’t look like one. “Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit” is an average action thriller that is entertaining but not very memorable.
