  2. Raymond Likes Subtitles's rating of the film Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit

  3. Ethan's rating of the film Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit

    Nothing spectacular here but it is a solid action film nonetheless. Chris Pine continues to prove that he can carry an action vehicle and Kevin Costner is continuing to age gracefully as the mentor in action films. Branagh makes a decent villian too in this character origin story that was originally The Hunt for Red October, a far superior film.

  4. DSPRKY's rating of the film Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit

    I'll watch Chris Pine fight people all day. Alas, the message here is the disturbing pro-CIA propaganda that Hollywood loves to pump out, making this film nothing more than the sum of its action sequences.

  5. Catarina C Gomes's rating of the film Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit

    Good enough for my lazy sunday ass

  6. Susana Bessa's rating of the film Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit

    It performed exactly as I had thought it would, and what a shame that is..

  7. L3onard Sh3lby's rating of the film Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit

  8. Sebastian's rating of the film Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit

    For a Jack Ryan movie, unfortunately everything happened exactly how you thought it would happen -- stale and formulaic. As an attempted rebirth of a cold war style action movie, perhaps we could have had a little less phones and laptops...

  9. J. O.'s rating of the film Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit

    The action was fast-paced and thrilling enough, with lots of gunfights, car chases, and explosions - which is exactly why you turned it on. Pine is enjoyable enough, Branagh seems to be having fun, Knightley is always charming, but otherwise the script is weak and the production is adequate but nothing terribly exciting. Nothing you haven't seen before.

  10. TheIB's rating of the film Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit

    The story itself had a lot of potencial but ultimately was thrown away. The conspiracy unveiling itself was hard to keep up with.

  11. Zach Closs's rating of the film Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit

    An underwritten, ridiculously formulaic piece of patronizing fucking garbage. Half of the plot is carried by Jack making rookie mistakes.

  12. jbizarro's rating of the film Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit

    OS RUSSOS VOLTAM AO RADAR DOS FILMES DE ESPIONAGEM. JACK RYAN JÁ SE DEU MELHOR NOUTROS CONFRONTOS COM A ARMADA RUSSA/sovietica

  13. Drew Kelly's rating of the film Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit

    Ridiculous how jingoistic this movie is--a film that comes out in 2014, after the stockmarket crash is about how to save Wall Street from being blown up, when in reality, they are some of the biggest criminals out there. (Also a stupid coda of "and then he got to meet the president, well I'll be!")

  14. Rodney Ramsey's rating of the film Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit

    Silly but very familiar story, some entertaining performances, some fun with the camera.

  15. Effendi Ben Smith-Malick's rating of the film Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit

    This was boring as shit and basically a movie about a CPA that has two action scenes. I'm sure accountants love the shit out of this movie.

  16. Adrian's rating of the film Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit

    The only great thing was Branagh playing Putin.

  17. Mathias Palmberg's rating of the film Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit

    Abyssmal action/thriller completely devoid of both action and thrills. The casting and acting is woeful and only Costner walks away unscathed.

  18. fabian_dellamonica's rating of the film Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit

    Volvé, Bourne! Este pibe es de piedra!

  19. Varun Saini's rating of the film Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit

    Another good story from Tom Clancy..!

  20. Tiago Batista Santos's rating of the film Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit

    Not clever. Not well-paced. Mildly entertaining.

  21. Carlos Filipe Freitas's rating of the film Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit

    In the dance of famous contemporary secret agents, which includes Jack Reacher and Jason Bourne, I would say that Jack Ryan is the less competent. Full Review: http://alwayswatchgoodmovies.blogspot.com/2014/01/jack-ryan-shadow-recruit-2013.html

  22. msmichel's rating of the film Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit

    Pine plays Ryan like 'a boy scout on a field trip' and his enthusiasm is almost contagious despite a weak script that's central plot device is so weak. Nothing special here save a quite exciting car chase around Moscow and watching Kenneth Branagh have a fun time playing Russian. Adequate action thriller but certainly nothing more.

  23. Teresa Silva's rating of the film Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit

    What a shame, this really could have been better.

  24. James's rating of the film Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit

    Fleet and diverting, as far as these things go. Gets increasingly silly in the third act, but Branagh (the director) exhibits an economy that glides over the retardedness with aplomb (much like he did with "Thor.") He even manages to trim some fat off the obligatory love interest subplot, using every scene with Knightley to push the plot forward in some way (though arguably its perfunctoriness renders it even more...
