Ten years pass. Jack finds anomalies in the accounts of a Russian named Cherevin and thinks he should go to Russia to check out what's going on. He's told not to tell anyone who he is, including his girlfriend Cathy, which makes her doubt him when she catches him in some lies. In Russia, Cherevin assigns someone to assist Jack, but when the two are alone, the man tries to kill Jack instead, so Jack kills him. Obviously, Cherevin is hiding something. Jack goes to meet him and says he'll bring his fiancée along, but ... Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com / revised by statmanjeff

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.
