What’s it about?
While working undercover as a junior analyst for the CIA, Jack Ryan (Chris Pine) uncovers an imminent terrorist attack designed to destroy the US economy.  

What did we think?
Elodie says:  If you blink, you’ll probably miss something.  And once you’ve missed it, good luck trying to keep up with the plot.  Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit is fast-paced, action-packed and topical, drawing on issues such as 9/11 and global economic instability for emphasis.  At times, the action scenes could be from almost any spy drama.  However, Pine meets expectations in a polished performance – he’s shed Captain Kirk and taken on shades of Jason Bourne.  Worth seeing, even if only for Keira Knightley’s gawky American accent.
