Jack Ryan Shadow Recruit re-watched

This movie is good. It is not great but I thought a sequel could have been good.  It looks like there will be not a sequel.

Chris Pine stars as Jack Ryan, the CIA agent and hero of Tom Clancy novels.  This movie is a reboot and it shows Jack in his first adventure. Kevin Costner is on hand in a supporting role. Keira Knightley is on hand as the love interest. There is a subplot where she suspects Jack is cheating on her.

Kenneth Branagh is the Russian villain.  He has a plan to destroy the American economy by causing the dollar to collapse. This would also hurt some other economies. Some of the details might have escaped me.

The action sequences were good. Pine is a likeable hero. He is not the best actor to play Jack Ryan but I thought he did a good job. It might have been fun to see some of his training.
