Product Description

Based on the CIA analyst created by espionage master Tom Clancy, “Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit” is a blistering action thriller that follows Ryan (Chris Pine) from his quiet double-life as a veteran-turned-Wall Street executive to his all-out initiation as a hunted American agent on the trail of a massive terrorist plot in Moscow.

Format: DVD
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 him 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).

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)


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.

Format: Blu-ray
Lt. Jack Ryan has a helicopter crash and rather than create a 6 million dollar man, Jack goes into physical therapy. With the aid of Cathy (Keira Knightley) he goes from falling down with crutches to just about being able to fly. He is recruited by the CIA (Kevin Costner) to work in the finance industry. In that role he discovers that the Russians have some secret accounts and plan on collapsing the US dollar. Jack goes to Moscow, but it wasn't as much fun as when Bruce Willis went and destroyed every vehicle in the city, or the drama and suspense when Matt Damon visited. While there were some chase scenes and car crashes, much of the action takes place monitoring a computer. And seriously, do they actually pass envelopes in a movie theater? I would think the thumb drive pass that they later in the film was the way to go.

Sorry Tom Clancy, but your characters were bland. Where was their sense of humor? The whole movie was about getting control over computer accounts to save the Treasury Bonds or something. For some reason my adrenaline rush level was low.

Parental Guide: 2 F-bombs to make sure it gets a PG-13 rating. No sex or nudity.

“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.
