29: ‘Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit’ Starring Chris Pine, Kevin Costner, Kenneth Branagh




This week on the show it’s Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit. Tom Clancy’s marquee character returns to the big screen and puts the “meh” in “meh-diocre”.

What is there to say about a movie whose villain’s “iconic” moment involves threatening someone with a light bulb? As it turns out…not much.

So join us for a meandering conversation of tangents and back alleys as we slowly discover that we can muster neither love nor hate the cinematic equivalent of a frozen pizza.

It’s Reel Spoilers #29 – Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit.

You’ve been warned.

Starring: Tom O’Keefe, Joe Buttice, Blake Fehl and Kevin Brackett
Run-time: 1 hr 16 min
