Review rate : B+

“..yeah, so it's not quite Bond, James Bond. But it's Ryan, Jack Ryan - a promising start to a probable new franchise, and an early bright spot on the late winter film calendar..”
by Stephen Whitty [Newark Star-Ledger]
3 of 5

“..there's no knockout sequence, no killer line. But you won't hate yourself for wasting your time..”
by Joshua Rothkopf [Time Out New York]
“..technically, the film is sharp..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]
3 of 4

“..structured, smart and fast, with a plausible central scenario, several gripping moments and well-wrought dialogue..”
by Kyle Smith [New York Post]
2.5 of 4

“..Pine plays Ryan with enough energy and smarts to be convincing in Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]
“..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..”
by Stephanie Zacharek [Village Voice]

LATEST REVIEWS

THE END OF THE TOUR :

“..The End Of The Tour largely remains a two-man show, expertly approximating the vagaries of actual conversation-the starts and stops that occur when two strangers are getting to know each other, one sentence at a time..”
by A.A. Dowd [A.V. Club]

NORTHMEN: A VIKING SAGA :

“..Bastian Zach and Matthias Bauer actually have to come up with something other than people shooting, stabbing and bludgeoning each other to death. If only they had put this kind of effort into creating characters worth caring about in the first place..”
by Martin Tsai [LA Times]

JENNY'S WEDDING :

“..ultimately, it becomes more a film about Jenny's parents as they learn to embrace and understand her..”
by Katie Walsh [LA Times]

STATEN ISLAND SUMMER :

“..frustratingly, the movie is plenty likable when it's not trying to show off its wistfulness. As a reader of the fake news, Jost should know that sometimes silly jokes are their own reward..”
by Jesse Hassenger [A.V. Club]

A LEGO BRICKUMENTARY :

“..there isn't much the viewer won't be able to answer about Legos by the end of "A Lego Brickumentary," except, perhaps, why he or she has just watched a 90-minute commercial for Legos..”
by John Anderson [Newsday]

BEST OF ENEMIES :

“..a timely but unsatisfying exploration of a series of exchanges between conservative Buckley and liberal Vidal makes its case too little and too late..”
by Inkoo Kang [The Wrap]

EXTINCTION :

“..if only they had more screen time. The film's core problems: too little zombie and too much plot..”
by Katherine Pushkar [NY Daily News]

THE SEVENTH DWARF :

“..short on charm and utterly devoid of magic..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]

6 WAYS TO DIE :

“.."6 WAYS to Die" is a revenge story told backwards. It's like "Memento," except that movie was fantastic. "6 Ways" is the opposite. The cheesy dialogue is written in slogans and the actors speak as slowly as possible..”
by Eddie Goldberger [NY Daily News]

I AM CHRIS FARLEY :

“..a warm, nostalgic reminder of a talent who died before his time..”
by Eddie Goldberger [NY Daily News]
