Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit

What should I say about Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit. It’s not very original, it’s conventional. It’s average. A decent watch and even a little entertaining.

As a character, Jack Ryan is also average. There are many more better action heroes than Jack. In this movie, Jack Ryan is based on the character created by Tom Clancy. I haven’t read Clancy’s books, so I can’t say much about that part.

I didn’t like much the cast of the movie. Chris Pine (as Jack Ryan) looks puffy and Keira Knightley (Jacks fiancée Cathy) acts with her usual manners (and I don’t like them much). Kenneth Branagh played the bad guy Viktor Cherevin. Kevin Costner, well Kevin Costner is Kevin Costner, but in this movie his role had no real challenge.

There’s nothing much to say about this movie. I saw it, I will forget it, quite soon.
