Entertaining movie - especially for those who know Jack Ryan from the Tom Clancy novels. This movie isn't based on a particular book however so if you're new to this character (like me!), you'll be fine.
Having watched previous Jack Ryan movies, I enjoyed this prequel learning how Ryan came about. Very entertaining with a strong cast and plenty of scope for future Ryan movies. Excellent.
REally enjoyed this movie. Good story, plausible with lots of action and tension. good spy type movie.
NOTHING like the Bourne films - not even Bourne-lite! Just a totally un-engaging C-grade action film, with panicky, bland 'heroes', boring baddies, and an annoying and unconvincing romantic relationship... Read more.
I felt sad for the few good actors in it, and Chris Pine was just embarrassing.
Generic pg-13 trash. Felt like it was made during the writer's strike.
Seen this movie before and still really enjoyed it. The cast in this Jack Ryan was great and hope they make more Jack Ryan movies loved them all
I never did see how jack Ryan was supposed to be a 'shadow' given that he was caught every time he went 'undercover'. An unmemorable movie with a forgettable plot.
We didn't really need another one of these - doesn't add anything.
Forgettable version of the Jack Ryan stories which were played excellently by Harrison Ford in earlier movies. Unfortunately, Chris Pine can not do the role justice and Kevin Costner does not do much... Read more to add to the movie. It was still watchable, but certainly not one that I could recommend.
Quite a good, believable plot with enough slight twists to make it interesting; however, you know how it is going to end of course. Amazingly, I have never heard of Jack Ryan or had any idea the character... Read more was related to Tom Clancy novels. I had heard of the novels and movies, but never was interested very much. I will now go watch the HF, AB, etc. movies from the last 20 years. Worth a look and KB was great both as actor and director. Sadly, KK didn't look as good as she has in the past, but is an amazing actress just the same. First time I saw her as an "American."
