Product Description

"An action hero is reborn!" in Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit, origin story of Tom Clancy's most iconic character. The thrills are non-stop as CIA recruit Ryan (Chris Pine) is caught in a dangerous web of intrigue and espionage spun between a shadowy government agent (Academy Award-Winner Kevin Costner), his unsuspecting fiancee (Keira Knightley) and a fearless Russian power broker (Kenneth Branagh). Jack must quickly evolve from soldier to analyst to full-fledged operative to stop a devastating terrorist plot against the United States. The stakes have never been higher in this "taut, tense and terrific" thrill ride.

I wasn't expecting much from this movie; the title was moronic, and I don't know why they keep rebooting Jack Ryan, instead of just plastering the Clancy corporate logo onto Chris Pine's forehead. This was a better film than 'The Sum of all Fears', but that's not saying much. 'Jack Ryan' managed to hit every hero cliché in less than two hours, recreating the same bland, faultless, super-patriotic cypher for the fifth time.

Ryan's a graduate student working on his Phd. at Oxford when 9/11 inspires to rush back home so fast he can't even deliver his doctoral dissertation in 'Ultra-Obscure-Economics'. He joins the Marines as a Lieutenant, requests frontline combat, gets shot down in a helicopter and breaks his back in the crash; that doesn't stop him from dragging his two comrades to safety in a super-heroic way. He spends several months in rehab (the heroic kind), triumphs over adversity, and learns how to stumble around, walk, run, then -- later -- fly around like a ninja, all while suffering from back pain... and top it all off by hooking up with the doctor-in-training who taught him to believe in himself by withholding medication and engaging him with spunky banter. He then meets Harper (Kevin Costner), his handler and future mentor, and becomes a 'shadow recruit' for the CIA, which means he'll be an undercover yuppie, a compliance officer for a large brokerage firm, secretly looking for shadowy financial behavior indicative of the next 9/11.

Ten uneventful years go by. He's the best damn compliance officer there is, of course, but he still has time to fix his geeky fake-pal up with women and (surprise!) spot a Russian oligarch propping up the US dollar for nefarious reasons (in an obvious way that should have sent red flags up everywhere).

VIDEO:

Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit arrives on blu-ray with MPEG-4 AVC 1080p 2.35:1 encode. This terrific transfer has a warm cinematic presence. Contrast is excellent with deep, solid blacks and revealing shadow delineation. The colour palette is richly hued with strong primaries and vibrant highlights that pop with brightness. Colour graduations are perfectly smooth and beautifully textured. Resolution is outstanding, with fine detail evident throughout. Detail is never lost, even in the darkest scenes. Facial features are finely resolved, as well as hair, clothing, and object texture. Fleshtones are perfectly hued, for impressive naturalness. This is a wonderful picture with stunning, reference imagery. (5/5)

AUDIO:

The DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1-channel soundtrack is effectively impressive, with a fully active immersive soundfield that envelops throughout, both in terms of low-level ambiance and energized peaks. The track is consistently dynamic, full, wide, and rich, delivering everything from robust musical notes to subtle ambiance with ease and lifelike accuracy. Music is very well spaced and plays with natural, enveloping stage presence. Clarity is strong throughout the range. Action sound effects are impeccably placed and detailed, whether the chaotic sounds of a helicopter before and after coming under fire, gunshots, or car crashes. Even more subtle sound effects, like brass casings falling to the floor after ejection from a suppressed pistol, play with an uncanny lifelike sound. Gently falling rain and rolling thunder, typical big city din, and airport public address announcements all play with a lifelike clarity and precision placement. Dialogue flows evenly and clearly from the center. This is a top-notch, reference-capable soundtrack from Paramount.

“Ah I am so relived” finally someone with a brain, what makes a movie,Mr. L.R. Hunt you have got the chops,
one thing though, you give too many stars, the only stars should be given, is, for “Keira Knightley”for her beauty alone,
I have never seen a more lame attempt at the Jack Ryan franchise, “Tom Clancy is crying somewhere,
when Chris Pine was in Hospital doing his Rehab, when he fell to the ground I was laughing so hard I
almost fell off the couch, and I know some of you say that’s a good thing, and to make him so highly a
person of pulling out two of his friends out of the helicopter, with a broken back, if you think I was laughing then??
and then to give me an almost, have to say this, remorse feeling of past movies, with it’s hurry up jack we’ve got trouble,
you have to get out of there, which was carried out by Kevin Costner, I even seen this in T.V. episode,
wish they'd gone the “Mission Impossible” way, with more sophisticated gadgets than just picking his pocket,
I haven’t even finished watching this movie, can’t say I want to, but I will persevere, maybe to the end,
will add some final thoughts,Finished it, will never watch again, what a waste of a Franchise,
Lame Attempt.

I recently watched Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit. As a Kenneth Branagh production, I was expecting something pretty sophisticated. My quick take... Mr. Branagh (or Mr. Clancy) should have taken a few minutes to talk to somebody on Wall Street before finalizing the "Dr. Evil" story line. I say this as somebody who has been an active investor in precious metal mining companies for the past 15 years or so. The basic premise of the film is that the Russians are going to launch the US into a second Great Depression first by driving up the market price of the US Dollar, and then by selling off their US Dollar hoard, while also blowing up Wall Street. Let me point out a couple of holes in the plot. (1) The Russians are basically buying high and selling low. Usually, this is a way to lose YOUR OWN money, not somebody else’s. (2) The US Dollar was gaining “several cents a week.” Sorry, in the real world, several cents per YEAR is a big move in the currency markets. (3) I'm sure Goldman Sachs was happily selling dollars to the Russians at levels above long-term market trends. Wall Street is full of traders who would be game for that play. And you have to know that the shorts would be piling on in such a market dynamic as well, so the Russians would have had a large coterie of counterparties hanging on as the US Dollar topped. (4) When the Russians start selling off their dollars, the price will fall, as correctly described in the movie. However, it is the Russians themselves who are losing on the falling price. So they now plan to be out billions or trillions on this so-called act of financial self-sabotage. (5) Then they are going to blow up Wall Street.Read more ›
