Not a Clancy Jack Ryan at all.
1 September 2018 | by dkaplunSee all my reviews

Instead of Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan, it feels like a mishmash of any current CIA shows like Homeland. Krasinski plays well as Jack Ryan but Greer is horribly butchered and made to be petty rather than a strong mentor. Other changes to his origin frankly make him more one-dimentional. Similarly Jack Ryan's love interest seems miscast also and is also not based on the Clancy description. As a Homeland clone it is okayish but as a Jack Ryan series...not so much.

There are bright moments. The adversary is interesting although his methods would not really work in that part of the world as far as a global movement is concerned. (no spoilers) as mentioned, John does a good job and the scenes of terror are legitimately terrifying.

There is a stench and a whiff of the current PC culture as some characters attempt to "whitesplain" why and how it is the Europeans and probably the Israelis who are responsible for the initial terror, which is shown as cause and effect. Luckily and fairly the actions of the adversaries are not painted in a rosy or sympathetic light.

All in all....not worth it.
