Review: Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit

Jack Ryan, as a young covert CIA analyst, uncovers a Russian plot to crash the U.S. economy with a terrorist attack.

About the movie

I don’t go to movies often. And when I do I definitely don’t chose action movies; or action thrillers as this movie has been described in reviews.

I didn’t actually choose the movie but as I wasn’t going alone, I figured the amazing company I was with would rather watch a movie with guns than animated princesses 🙂

So this one stars Chris Pine, Kevin Costner and Keira Knightly. It’s the fifth in the Jack Ryan series; the only difference being that this one is an original story; not an adaption of any Tom Clancy novel.

My thoughts

Initially when I thought it was a war movie, I freaked out but as it didn’t end up being a war movie I stayed and watched.
Disclaimer: I don’t particularly like or appreciate war movies.

I felt it was good movie but it was drawn out a bit, the story line was kinda predictable and has a bit of a boring, anti climax ending.
