Storyline Heading
After 9/11 and a tour of duty in Afghanistan which scarred him forever, Jack Ryan lands in the Financial Intelligence Unit of the modern CIA where he becomes an analyst, under the guardianship of his handler, Harper. When Ryan believes he's uncovered a Russian plot to collapse the United States economy, he goes from being an analyst to becoming a spy and must fight to save his own life and those of countless others, while also trying to protect the thing that's more important to him than anything, his relationship with his fiancee Cathy.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Action - This fifth film based on the popular Tom Clancy spy novel series is a reboot/origin story with a bit more action than the previous films. Fans of all of the stars should enjoy. Like previous films in the series, this skews somewhat older than most action films, even in this case with a younger lead cast. Language and violence make the film too intense for young children.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Good This is summer blockbuster quality entertainment delivered in the dead of winter - a most welcome development.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Good But then something interesting (and pretty rare) happens: the movie finds its feet, and unrolls as a pretty suspenseful, largely engaging, and hardly ever too-over-the-top spy thriller.

USA Today Full Review
Above Average Still, Pine seems a good fit for the role and Knightley does her best to enliven a rather lackluster part. Unfortunately, the script they work from is full of plot holes and implausibilities.

Washington Post Full Review
Average Chris Pine gives the Tom Clancy franchise fresh blood in 'Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit'
