So much info, too little time

The story was trying to tell so many things and they told it in too short of a movie. It made the story very choppy. Also, the American accent of Keira Knightley is so nasal...she was trying really hard, but didn't really buy it. Couldn't they have cast an American actress?

Certainly okay. Won't win any awards but not a total waste of money. Nobody did a bad job, kind of liked Costner in his supporting role. While I've liked the predecessors, the actor playing Jack Ryan was fine in the role.

Jack Ryan hits the mark

I'm not a fan or neither Chris Pine or Kiera Knightley but this movie went a long way in changing my opinion of them. The movie is a must see if you like that spy thriller genre.. It was an action filled engrossing viewing.

Great Start

I have been a fan of this character since I read the first book. I have liked most of the movies based on the character. This movie is no different. I am hoping that Chris Pine sticks around as Jack Ryan for a little while. I still prefer him as Capt. Kirk, but him as Jack Ryan is good as well. I can't wait to see what they can do next with this series. Great action scenes, and good acting. Definitely will be seeing what comes next.

a predictable Jack Ryan plot

A mildly entertaining thriller, but no surprises, character development, or especially gut-wrenching scenes. Well paced and good technical production and special effects. the basic plot is tired and predictable -- the Russians are out to take down our economy, now with high-tech money transfers on top of a terrorist strike on Wall Street. Kenneth Brannagh isn't a good Russian. Costner plays the senior Agency guy well.
