Storyline

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. He would then enlist in the Marines and would go to Afghanistan. The chopper he was on would get shot down and he would suffer severe injuries that would require intense rehab. 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 ...

Jack Ryan super hero
10 April 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This Jack Ryan was more involved in events rather by choice as oppose accidents. Compared to the Ryan of Ford and Affleck this Ryan was more equipped for fighting than using his brains.

The acting was good, the interaction between characters was very good, the fight scenes and SFX were up to standard. Russians, Chinese, and North Koreans are your most popular bad guys these days and whats happened to the Crimea adds some weight to the story line.

Ryan is known for his cerebral power outsmarting his opponent or identifying solutions to problems. The movie was entertaining with lots of good fight scenes and technology but you could easily call be titled Mission Impossible or male version of SALT.
