If you are fan of author Tom Clancy there’s no doubt you will love Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit. It is always great when a movie gives you the history of a character and how they develop.
Jack Ryan (Chris Pine) plays a soldier and financial genius who uncovers a terrorist attack. As the story unfolds he is thrust into a world of espionage while trying to maintain a life of normalcy with his love interest Cathy (Keira Knightley) . But my heart throb Harper (Kevin Costner) is there to keep him grounded.
The 108 minutes are filled with everything you could want in a spy thriller: car chases, fights scenes, comic relief and watching in it IMAX really intensified the dramatic moments.
I enjoyed the movie except the sub-par acting of Keira Knightley. I think they could have chosen a better love interest for the main character.
I gave this movie 3 .5 heartbeats.
See you at the concession stand for the next movie who gets my review.
