Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit - Review

The fifth "Jack Ryan" film (and second reboot of the franchise), "Shadow Recruit" does away with its traditional roots to reinvent the character for a new generation, though it's more commendable for its good intentions than the use it puts them to. 

Like any good reboot, we start at the beginning with economics student Jack Ryan (Pine) aching to serve his country after the events of 9/11, an ache which eventually lead him to Moscow where he is the only thing standing in the way of a plot to crash the US economy. Or he would be if he could stop worrying about how his life as a CIA agent was getting in the way of his relationship with a beautiful eye doctor (Knightley).
