    Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit

    Not a bad movie at all...just got back from watching it. And it fits into the overall storyline that Tom Clancy wrote pretty well. They had to "update" it for today's events. I'd say it's worthwhile to go see. And especially Drew...it's not only about some financial stuff but his favorite actress is in it.

    I'm still waiting for a Rainbow 6 movie, that was always my favorite out of the 10 or 12 Clancy books i've read. Considering the success of the video games I'm surprised it hasn't been made into a movie yet.

    It's possible...kinda surprised myself but maybe with Tom Clancy's passing his family may allow it. But I prefer the Jack Ryan series...which I need to reread at some point.

    I also enjoyed it. The action was well paced and fun. I am of the opinion, however, that Kenneth Branagh should not be directing action stories or really anything other than Shakespeare

    I saw this movie yesterday. I thought it was entertaining, but only an okay film.

    As much as I like Chris Pine, I didn't really think he fit as Jack Ryan. I'd say that Harrison Ford is the only actor who's really done a good job as Jack Ryan. Alec Baldwin did an okay job, but I don't think Ben Affleck or Chris Pine really did the Jack Ryan character much justice (even though, to be honest, I like Ben Affleck and Chris Pine as actors. And I think Ben Affleck is an excellent director.).

    So, in my opinion, Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit isn't a bad movie by any stretch of the imagination, but I do think it's the weakest of the Jack Ryan films.
