Critic Reviews of "Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit"New YorkerSeptember 22, 2014
"Shadow Recruit" is fun in a minor, winter-season way.GrantlandMarch 14, 2014
I'm aware that commercial and cultural forces require everything to be rebooted triennially with fresher, hotter stars. But this is the second time the Jack Ryan franchise has rejected a youth transplant.New York ObserverJanuary 24, 2014
The dim star wattage in this fifth rehash is palpable from the start.Richard Roeper.comJanuary 21, 2014
This is the very definition of an OK thriller.Miami HeraldJanuary 20, 2014
Director Kenneth Branagh knows how to invest the ridiculous with a sort of grandeur - Exhibit A: the surprisingly fun Thor - but Shadow Recruit is more straightforward in nature, so he can't get too fancy.RogerEbert.comJanuary 17, 2014
A pretty suspenseful, largely engaging, and hardly ever too-over-the-top spy thriller.New Zealand HeraldFebruary 28, 2017
The main characters and the performances behind them are nicely pitched.Washington Free BeaconJuly 14, 2016
As an action-thriller, Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit is more or less competent. As an heir to the Jack Ryan mantle, however, it is less so.The Film StageJune 21, 2016
Focal compositions and moody editing in the vein of Hitchcock help establish suspense and emotion without the need for excessive special effects or big-budget set pieces.AARP Movies for GrownupsApril 18, 2016
(Director) Branagh doesn't reinvent the wheel here, but he does take the rims off a flashy 2014 Tesla and put them on a 1985 Camaro: a big, comfy muscle car asking only that you point it in the right direction and step on the gas.CinemixtapeApril 14, 2016
A dull, vacant post-Cold War spy yarn that has nothing to say about anything.ChrisStuckmann.comApril 23, 2015
The vulnerability of the Jack Ryan character is still present, something very important that keeps us rooting for him.
