Movie Review: Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit

Look, Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit was a decent effort, but this was possibly one of the most dead even mediocre films I've seen in a long time. It was clear that the film followed a predictable formula, which was a terrible decision as this came out as a bland version of James Bond or any Bourne film. I didn't find myself caring for the story or even for the characters, the plot also fell flat and annoyingly underdeveloped, and I seriously didn't sense any real danger throughout the film. The action sequence weren't even all that. The only thing that worked here was Chris Pine's solid performance. Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit had a couple of good moments here and there and the film was perfectly serviceable, but it was entirely generic and forgettable. Pedestrian at best. 5
