Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan is back in the all-new action thriller Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit directed by Sir Kenneth Branagh, who also co-stars. It is the fifth film in the Jack Ryan series and is an original story by Adam Cozad and David Koepp -- a new version of the saga that departs from previous installments. It features an all-star cast that includes Chris Pine as Jack Ryan, Kevin Costner, Keira Knightley, Kenneth Branagh and Colm Feore. Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit is dedicated to Clancy, who died on October 1, 2013.
After the events of 9/11, Jack Ryan leaves behind his studies at the London School of Economics and enlists in the Marines, going to Afghanistan. When Ryan is critically injured, he goes through a lengthy rehab where he gets recruited by CIA veteran Thomas Harper. Encouraged to finish his studies, ten years later Ryan is a covert CIA analyst working on Wall Street to look for suspicious transactions that may be linked to terrorist financing. Anomalies in the accounts of Russian tycoon Viktor Cherevin sends him to Russia where he reunites with Harper to uncover a terrorist plot to devastate the United States and send the country into a new Great Depression. Racing against time, they must stop Cherevin and his sleeper agent son Aleksandr before Wall Street crumbles, while dealing with the unexpected arrival of Ryan’s fiancée Cathy who does not know he is CIA and suspects Ryan is having an affair.
Exclusive to the Blu-ray is nearly an hour of bonus material including featurettes that explore the Jack Ryan character from The Hunt for Red October through his latest hit, a look at the film’s imposing adversary played by Sir Kenneth Branagh, deleted and extended scenes, commentary and more.
