Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit

Critics Consensus

It doesn't reinvent the action-thriller wheel, but Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit offers a sleek, reasonably diverting reboot for a long-dormant franchise.

Audience Reviews for Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit

  • Mar 06, 2016
    Starting out slowly to give some (superficial) background to the character and the economic aspect of the premise does not sound all that interesting at first. But once the terror threat enters the equation the film kicks into gear for a really fast, well done and exciting second half. Then it's great thriller entertainment culminating in a pretty great showdown.

    A thriller without personality or originality. It smacks of heavy re-writes designed to fix something beyond repair.
    Alec B Super Reviewer
  • Dec 24, 2014
    An unoriginal and forgettable movie so full of worn-out clichés and so far-fetched that it will only be surprising or exciting for someone who has never seen anything in their lives before, with also an intrusive, clichéd score and a good cast that certainly deserved better.
    Carlos M Super Reviewer
  • Nov 29, 2014
    An overly complicated, action-devoid thriller that's supported by a fantastic ensemble cast but let down in most other areas.
