Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit Review | GES | "Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit tells the origin story of one of Tom Clancy’s most iconic characters Jack Ryan (Chris Pine). It’s also a reboot of the Jack Ryan franchise, which has seen veteran actors like Harrison Ford take on the character in earlier movies.In Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit we get to know Ryan as a student of the London School of Economics. After the tragic happenings of 9/11 he joins the US Marines where he gets severely injured during a helicopter crash. After the accident he needs grueling rehab and this is where he gets noticed by Thomas Harper (Kevin Costner), a CIA agent who recruits Jack into the CIA as a covert agent working on Wall Street. Years later we find Ryan fairly happy in a relationship with his previous doctor Cathy (Keira Knightley). I say fairly happy as Cathy has grown very suspicious of her fiancé as she’s caught him telling her lies about his whereabouts. At work, Jack uncovers a shady financial deal which leads him to go to Russia where he faces off with a ruthless Russian criminal named Viktor Cherevin (Kenneth Branagh), all while dealing with a nagging girlfriend back at the hotel."
