The movie Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit is a mediocre spy movie. The lack of building a story before jumping into the action really leaves you wondering what was the backstory of the main character. It also leaves you confused and having to play catch-up because you’re trying to figure out the plot. But what this movie does do good is action scenes. Once the action actually starts The view were kind of forgets about the plot and just enjoys watching what unfolds on the screen. I think if this movie was 30 minutes longer and spend that 30 minutes at the front of the movie giving a little more in-depth view of the life of Jack Ryan before he was thrust into being an operative this movie would be an excellent movie. But I’m sad to say I have to give this movie a 4 out of 10.
