VERDICT – 1/5
1) Retired CIA analyst Jack Ryan on vacation accidentally foils plans of an IRA splinter group’s attempting a political assassination. Now, the brother of the dead assailants vows revenge from Ryan’s family.
1) The problem with Jack Ryan‘s character is that he is an analyst, unlike other fictional CIA field agents.
2) Tediously formulaic, and slow spy-thriller.
Robby: So, you just waded on in like John Wayne. Why’d you do it? What were you thinking, man?
Jack Ryan: I don’t know. I wasn’t thinking.
