A new version of the saga of CIA analyst, Jack Ryan. It begins when Ryan was attending the London School of Economics; and 9/11 happened.

While there, he grabs the attention of a man named Harper, who works for the CIA and would like him to finish his studies and get a job on Wall Street so he can find out of any terrorist plot through their finances. A few years later, Ryan finds anomalies in the accounts of a Russian named Cherevin. Jack thinks he should go to Russia to find out what's going on. Jack was told not to tell anyone who he is and that includes his girl friend Cathy. But she catches Jack in some lies which makes her doubt him. Jack goes to Russia and Cherevin assigns him someone to take care of him. But when they're alone the man tries to kill Jack. So Jack kills him. Obvious Cherevin is hiding ... Written by
Although this film is not based on a specific novel of the franchise, the Hunt for Red October is. There is a scene which describes Jack Ryan's back injury, therefore stating that Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit is a prequel film. If that were indeed the case, Jack Ryan mentioning Facebook and other online media sites would have been chronologically impossible as they had not been invented yet. See more »

This Movie Is An Embarrassment - For the Creators, and the People Who Recommended It
What an utterly sad and offensive legacy for Tom Clancy. In Hollywood, truly, nothing is sacred.
Instead of the thought provoking, truth to power story we came to expect from a Jack Ryan movie, this brings us more of Hollywood's waronterrah porn.
It was interesting a bit back in 2002 maybe. Let it go. As propaganda, you've pretty much saturated your market. For the rest of us, you've actually made expensive CGI FX boring.
The thing that made Jack Ryan more interesting than a Steven Seagal character was he was thoughtful, intelligent, and not an action figure. And Clancy raised some fascinating dilemmas with American might and power.
What is this? Garbage.
