This was my first Jack Ryan movie, and I enjoyed it very much. Chris pine is Jack Ryan, an previously injured marine who is recruited by the CIA to stop a Russian terrorist plot to destroy the U.S. economy. This movie, to me, was almost flawless. Towards the middle of the movie many scenes lacked action and concentrated to much on conversation and other minor details. Which was important, but was a little excessive. Anyway, when it has it's action it is thrilling and intense with some top notch acting from Chris Pine, Kiera Knightley, Kevin Costner, Kenneth Baragnah (however you spell it), e.t.c. Very enjoyable overall but best for ages 11 or 12+.
