  • Stephen Whitty

    Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit though, gets the international-espionage ingredients almost exactly right.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit is half silliness, half swagger, but Branagh's arms-akimbo impudence as a director makes it work. He takes it all seriously, but with a wink.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Glenn Kenny

    The movie finds its feet, and unrolls as a pretty suspenseful, largely engaging, and hardly ever too-over-the-top spy thriller. Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit provides the best motion picture adventure for the title character since his introduction in "The Hunt for Red October."

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Peter Hartlaub

    Even with its thrifty set pieces and smaller ambitions, this attempt to reboot the series based on Tom Clancy characters does the most important thing right: It almost always feels like a Jack Ryan movie.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • R. Kurt Osenlund

    In keeping his actors on his sober-yet-buoyant plane, Kenneth Branagh presents a convincing romance that doesn't stall the film's brisk clip.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Kyle Smith

    Soundly structured, smart and fast, with a plausible central scenario, several gripping moments and well-wrought dialogue.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Richard Corliss

    A reboot of an A-level spy series seems too pretty-good to be true. Shadow Recruit occupies this weekend’s movie screens as familiarly and reassuringly as a Walther PPK fits in the hand of James Bond.

    Time Full Review
  • Manohla Dargis

    A competently made, moderately diverting variation on a genre standard.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Justin Chang

    Crisp, efficient and appreciably modest in scale...this conspicuous attempt to breathe new life into a long-dormant action franchise gets at least a few things right, chiefly the shrewd casting of Chris Pine.

    Variety Full Review
  • Owen Gleiberman

    Branagh did a nice job of directing "Thor," but all he can do here is try to energize the recycled pulp of the script.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Steven Rea

    Too much of the action in Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit takes place on laptops, thumb drives, and video monitors.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Mark Feeney

    Slick, loud, assured, overplotted (way overplotted), fairly diverting, and pretty much empty.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Richard Roeper

    Though directed with great precision by Branagh, Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit is saddled with a boilerplate script.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit has no personality of its own. It's a product constructed out of spare parts and assembled with computerized precision. It's hard to care when Jack turns operational and becomes a CIA robocop. The movie feels untouched by human hands.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Connie Ogle

    Pine, who has been so good and so instrumental in J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek series as Captain Kirk, turns out to be a decent Ryan.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    Branagh & Co. keep up appearances with a thriller that works mainly because all of its parts — locations, fights and plot twists — are well worn from all the thrillers they’ve been in before.

    McClatchy-Tribune News Service Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    The film is slow in getting started and once it's underway it's only intermittently involving. It's also occasionally far-fetched.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Neil Smith

    A solid outing for a re-Bourne hero that could, with a few key tweaks, generate another round of vehicles for the Clancy cash cow.

    Total Film Full Review
  • Olly Richards

    In stripping Jack Ryan back to basics it’s lost some sophistication, but reinvigorated an action hero who’s unlike any other on offer and who absolutely earns his second — or rather fourth — shot.

    Empire Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    The movie itself isn’t dull. It’s moderately stylish, moderately suspenseful, fun in patches. It hits its marks. But the setup lacks urgency.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit is a well-made movie, well-acted (Costner and Branagh seem to be having an especially good time) and a pleasant diversion. They’ll probably make several more. But it doesn’t exactly put the “thrill” in action thriller.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Joe Neumaier

    Branagh, taking advantage of his experience helming 2011’s “Thor,” shows an allegiance to the genre he’s working in; both as director as co-star, he pours on the menace.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Joshua Rothkopf

    The plot’s a bit complex for what amounts to a lot of running around — the movie can’t help but evoke the Bourne series along with a high-gloss hint of Skyfall, not wholly unpleasantly.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Rex Reed

    By my rough calculation, the real Jack Ryan should be approximately 103. Preposterous but moderately engaging, Jack Ryan has outlived his welcome, and there’s no end in sight.

    New York Observer Full Review
  • Kenneth Turan

    There is no shaking the feeling that Branagh and his cast are a kind of an espionage film B team, capable of mild diversion but nothing more.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Ann Hornaday

    Branagh, who proved his action bona fides with “Thor,” does an inarguably competent job of choreographing a modestly intelligent espionage thriller, even if it’s impossible to identify anything new he’s bringing to an already groaning table.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Ignatiy Vishnevetsky

    The movie eventually evokes the sense that Branagh is better at directing in front of the camera than from behind it; its best moments are typically the ones that feature Branagh’s Viktor Cherevin on-screen.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Keith Phipps

    There’s promising raw material here, particularly in the early scenes. But the film’s second half seems determined to snuff out the promise of its first, making it hard to wish for this incarnation of the character, or any, to have more big-screen adventures.

    The Dissolve Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    An average franchise re-launch.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Todd McCarthy

    Efficient, if ultimately rote, political thriller.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Drew Taylor

    Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit refashions the character (this time played by Chris Pine) into a man of immediate action, and in doing so drains him of anything that made him a relatable human being.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    This is moviemaking in a modular mode, an inspiration-free action adventure — with cheesy cinematography — that fills its modest running time by fitting together familiar elements into something reliably, even insistently, not new.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • Adam Nayman

    The appeal of the Jack Ryan character, at least on the page, was that he was always the smartest guy in the room. In Shadow Recruit, that doesn’t seem to be much of an accomplishment, because the movie around him is so dumb.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Kimberley Jones

    Branagh might as well have opened a can and dumped it on a plate, the ridges of a factory-line production still perfectly hatched on a gelatinous cylinder of crud.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • David Denby

    Shadow Recruit is fun in a minor, winter-season way. If the producers stick with Chris Pine as he ages, they may end up with something worth caring about. [20 Jan.2014, p.78]
