Bryan Lienesch84 - Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit has the unenviable task of being the first "legacy" film following the passing of Tom Clancy. And it works -- mostly -- but one can't help to feel that Chris Pine is too little "Jack Ryan" and too much "James Bond".

Rob from GuysFilmQuest70 - Nothing wrong with it, but also nothing special. Decent enough that I'd watch a sequel, but I wouldn't run to see it in the theater.

Le Anne of Tinsel And Tine61 - The beginning of the movie establishes Jack Ryan as a student working on his PhD in economics in the UK, when 911 hits, he switches paths and joins the Marine Corp, where he gets injured and has to learn to walk again, which is where he meets the love of his life, Cathy (Keira Knightley, whose quality I always like, despite the fact she acts with her mouth). At any rate,
