Great Cast and Fun Action Movie

By pixiepunch

I really only went to see this because of the actors involved, since I don't know anything about the Jack Ryan franchise. There were things I would have liked different in the story, which I felt was very black and white for a movie involving international espionage. However, I had a good time. Chris Pine is so handsome, but he's also a great actor and put a lot of soul and emotion into this character. He made the character's genuine distress after having to kill someone for the first time believable, which made him stand apart from the cliche action hero. I was worried that Kiera Knightley's character would be annoying, since that's how a lot of action movies treat female characters. Her initial suspicions were founded, and some of her actions seemed exaggerated, but overall she was cool and did her part. Speaking of women, it was also cool to see several women of color as agents. You never see that in action movies either. Check it out for a fun action movie! And Chris Pine!

Chris Pine was a great pick for Jack Ryan - similar wholesome/idealistic appeal as Harrison Ford's Ryan. Kevin Costner was perfect, Kiera Knightly was okay. Believable plot line given modern headlines. Loved the scenery shots in Moscow. Looking forward to the next installment with Chris Pine.

By-the-numbers, but well-crafted anyway

Well-crafted spy thriller hits all the requisite notes, is capably carried by the appealing Chris Pine (who now has two franchises to make money from), and is capably assisted by Kevin Costner and Kiera Knightley. Director Kenneth Branagh, as the villain, manages to both under play AND chew scenery at the same time. Enjoyable and worth the ticket price.
