Jack Ryan: The Shadow Recruit

Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit@._V1_SX214_AL_StarringChris Pine, Kevin Costner, Keira KnightleyKenneth Branagh

Directed byKenneth Branagh

Written byAdam Cozad, David Koepp

Year: 2013

Plot: Ex-marine, post-convalescent, Chris Pine joins the CIA and is promptly embedded at a Wall-Street firm as a compliance officer, whose real mission is to detect potential threats to national security. Conveniently enough the Russians decide to take a shot at things on his watch.

Pros: It’s like organic dog food. It still smells bad, but it’s organic.

Cons: How the mighty have fallen! While Branagh doesn’t fail as miserably at being Russian as Vincent Cassel did, the whole oeuvre is still pretty painful to watch.
