My newest review of Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit over on pulpinterest.com.
'Plot holes aside, Shadow Recruit is entertainingly worthy nonetheless. The Belfast-born Branagh is not immediately associated with action cinema, of course, but he displays a sure hand in dealing with the movie’s more hectic sequences, a car chase through the Moscow gridlock representing a particular treat. Its energetic, tech-literate and computer savvy protagonist offers a refreshingly clean break too from the harassed Ford’s stuffy spin on Ryan; a man who was, at one time, almost defeated by running out of paper for the printer.'
