Won't Win An Oscar But You'll Have Fun Anyway (by therunner42)
Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit is an exciting movie that won't win any awards but makes for a really fun afternoon. It tells the story of Jack Ryan obviously and his life as a CIA agent from recruitment to operational. It avoids cliché and the acting is believable. Chris Pine stars as Jack Ryan and he really brings this character life. This is possibly his biggest role to date but things are clearly on the horizon. He has a true screen charisma. Kevin Costner has also brought the magic as Ryan's mentor. Kiera Knightley stars as his love interest and she also creates real drama. I am not <more>
sure if it is poor wardrobe choices or a directorial decision to play down her looks but the costuming of her character is awful and a lot of opportunities are missed. That is the only bad thing one can say about his film. It has action, laughs and a fair bit of emotional drama. I loved it.
I noted with some interest that a few of the reviews were spoilers. I watched the reviews and I thoroughly enjoyed the film to the point i would watch it again. To the reviewer who found the part, that Jack had spinal surgery but after slamming his motorcycle into the side of a van, walked away and chased still after the villain, obviously didn't watch the film properly , as he had his surgery 10 year previous and was constantly regaining his strength over this time, so would very likely be able to do this. The only part i would critic is when he walks into the hotel and the desk clerk <more>
states "can you just sign here Mr Ryan" how did she know who he was? Apart from this I found this film most enjoyable.
I expected very little from my admission ticket. And I must say that I was happily surprised to find an old fashioned action thriller with a good cast and lots of great moments. It is a throw-back to the 80's, that's for sure. Minimal CGI and a plot that holds together. it is reminiscent of films like DAY OF THE JACKEL, Russia HOUSE and the early Tom Clancy's. Don't want to give away plots twists or story points that demand a spoiler alert. The only minor quibble is that Chris Pine is a bit light weight as Jack Ryan. The rest of the cast is fine with Kevin Costner giving a <more>
performance that makes you recall why he has always been a fascinating actor. Do wish Kiera K. would get her teeth fixed. Pretty girl but oh those choppers are a shame.
Well made, excitingly paced action, spy pic. All of the lead actors were exactly what was needed: Chris Pine, soft on the eyes, action hero, an average Joe in for more than he bargained for, but a soldier first and foremost; Keira Knightley, the pretty innocent who tags along, and then is up to the tasks at hand; Kevin Costner, the old mentor and Kenneth Branagh, who gets special mention for playing a Russian flawlessly. The plot was not complicated, easy to understand, but exciting even with its simplicity. And the plot was thoughtful in our contemporary times: full of technology and ideas <more>
of economic terrorism. The films was pleasant in its setting: lavish apartments and office buildings, high tech screens, exteriors in Moscow.
Chris Pine first was a young James T. Kirk in the prequel/rebooted Star Trek franchise, now plays Jack Ryan in this rebooted franchise. Jack Ryan Chris Pine a C.I.A. Anaylist is looking to marry his doctor girlfriend Keira Knightly . But Jack goes on a mission in Russia, learning this ain't no simply mission has he hoped, but he has to prevent a terrorist attack on New York. But will he succeed? Chris Pine is pretty as Jack Ryan, I don't know why he is so under rated a lot of times, He's a pretty good actor. And Keira Knightly is also good, she does an American accent so well for <more>
a while I forgot she is British.h Kenneth Branagh is great has the main villain, man he can give quite a good scary cold eye stare, and also has director. It has some good action scenes, and some suspenseful moments. At no point, it never feels to hammed up like some action movies would. I hope ya'll will be entertained like I was?
Solid action adventure with spies, and suspense, then more action. (by face-819-933726)
Well it is all there. If this was the first American movie that you ever watched, you would get all of what you need to come away rooting for them. There is no denying that this is a high quality movie with all of the production, and effects that a solid 8 figures can buy you, and where it gets good is in the telling. Nonsense aside this is a good movie with decent action, and very good stunts, acted by a very talented cast, and set in amazing places. It is Mission Impossible crossed with Bourne of any shape, and in an Enjoyable way that doesn't treat you like a moron each location had <more>
the right things, and people and with just enough action to build the tension and keep you hooked. This is not a popcorn midsummer bubblegum bit of fluff, this is your real action/suspense, and spies type stuff here. Jack Ryan is just a man, but he is one to look up to.
From what I read in the credits, this is based on the characters created by Clancy, and it seems to have the right idea, and a very talented writer to set the basis for it. Chris Pine has done great work as Kirk in the "Star Trek' newest reincarnation, and I was a bit hesitant to accept him in this new role. Then I thought if Harrison Ford had managed to embody three or four of cinema's most interesting action characters, Pine had at least a good chance. Pine does very well in live interviews and is a decent actor, very charismatic. Ford is great on screen even though he's <more>
not the most exciting interviewee. The premise might work.Then I saw that Brannagh would helm the picture and costar in it, with a little help from another interesting actor, Costner. He started as the double-spy in "No Way Out" and did well. There's a dark side to him, so I figured he would do well as CIA operative. The film seemed to be moving well."Shadow Recruit" has Pine working as financial CIA agent who discovers some rather covert manipulations of the market. He knows he has to travel to Moscow in order to set things straight. Somehow it was never explained to him that he might have to face bullets, race cars, and endanger his life. After a brief introduction which lets us know how he is recruited and gives us a bit of moral background, Pine is off and running all over Moscow, facing the film's archenemy, his fiancé, and some really bad traffic in Moscow.The film has good pacing, and the effects are pretty decent. Yet, there is a bit missing the target. It might be the underdeveloped villain, and the whole complicated situation which combines the financial maneuvering with the possibility of very lethal damage to a big metropolis. It works best when our hero tries to avoid elimination, or he's trying to stop someone from hurting him or his wife.It's a January film, so there might not have been much expected from it, and if it develops into its own franchise, it has a strong likelihood it will succeed. Pine has very good chemistry with his co-star. I hope they come back.
The Russians are back at it again trying to topple America. Even though this story has been beaten to death, this story actually fits and works very well in the year 2014.First I just want to say I'm in no way a hardcore reader of the books written by the late great Tom Clancy. I have seen all prior films based on the character, but again not a hardcore fan like some.The story as I mentioned above is basically Russians bad, and trying to take down America. Yes this element in film is nothing new, however I actually think it was well written into the script written by Adam Cozad and David <more>
Koepp. With a weakening U.S. economy something like this that occurs could possibly happen inside the U.S.The acting is fantastic. Headlined by Chris Pine who has more than proved himself over the years with other acting films like Star Trek he at least in my mind fits the role nicely. The surrounding cast including Kevin Costner and Keira Knightley all work well together in the film. Kenneth Branagh who plays the Russian bad guy is fabulous in this film. One of the better bad guys I've seen in a action film recently.However I would say the film suffers from its shorter runtime. Each previous Jack Ryan film has been just about two hours or even longer. The plot and the development of the characters seems rushed with this shortened runtime. It brings the film down a few notches, but doesn't ruin the film at all.Since I seen the film in IMAX I will review that here quickly as well. The IMAX experience for this film is basically just a cash grab, and nothing more. None of the film was actually shot using IMAX cameras, thus there is no reason to spend extra money to see the film in IMAX. Converted IMAX really only brings in better sound in my opinion. The quality of the audio was thunderous and amazing. Nothing to warrant an extra five dollars or so for a ticket.Overall this film is good. The acting tied in with a good story leaves us with a film that can be enjoyed by the whole family.7.5 out of 10
I haven't read the Tom Clancy book. Maybe that's why I thought it was a good movie. Chris Pine was very good at his role of playing Jack Ryan, and I found the storyline of the movie very engaging and interesting. It had a good cast and a strong plot that kept me engaged throughout the entirety of the movie. I think that many of the reviews are overly harsh about this movie; it is one I wouldn't mind seeing again, and it was far above average. I enjoyed the action and suspense that this movie portrayed, and the emotion that Chris Pine portrayed in certain moments. It was enjoyable <more>
to see some thought go into the reasoning behind the economics that the movie was based on.Stay classy friends, Steve
