Flick Chick Review ‘ Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit’

Subscribe to WWMJ Ellsworth Maine on

Flick Chick here once again in the pursuit of truth, justice and keeping you from spending your hard earned money on movies that suck! Today Ma and I put on our secret squirrel decoder rings and headed the world of espionage at the Bangor Mall Cinemas to see ‘Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit’.

This movie runs just under 2 hours and is considered a action, mystery, thriller. It is rated R PG-13 PG-13 for sequences of violence and intense action, and brief strong language and stars: Keira Knightley, Chris Pine, Kevin Costner, Kenneth Branagh, who also directs the film


This movie follows a new incarnation of the Tom Clancy character Jack Ryan, as a young covert CIA analyst. Taking us from his roots the story begins with Ryan as a brilliant trained marine injured in combat recruited to do covert ops by the CIA. Dunring his time undercover he uncovers a Russian plot to crash the U.S. economy with a terrorist attack. This sets him into active duty and unknowingly brings his fiancé into the fray.


Over all I liked this film.  The plot though intricate was possible to follow and believable to a degree, although I would hope the US is not as vulnerable as this portrays.  Regardless, premise accepted Chris Pine and Kevin Costner do a great job reeling you in.  Kenneth Branagh plays an excellent villain and really seems to have great directing chops as well.  There were a few places the story dragged a little for me and some of the scenes were a little hard to accept if you really thought about what they were saying is possible. On a scale of 1-10 I am giving ‘Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit‘an 8
