Good. Right off the bat I knew I was going to like this movie just by the fact that this is based on Tom Clancy’s characters. I have loved a lot of his older movies that are a must if you have not seen them. So I’m a little biased here.

Chris Pine is straight fire these days. He’s in everything and has a ton lined up in the pipeline. He and the rest of the cast did a solid job in this slightly farfetched espionage thriller, and Keira Knightley is easy on the eyes as an added bonus. The movie starts off a little slow out of the gate, but it picks up steam and gets the adrenalin pumping throughout. The movie is good spy movie with a ton of action, so if you like these types of films then this is right in your sweet spot. It’s no Jason Bourne, but it does a great job being what it is. Hopefully this is turns into a franchise, because I would definitely like seeing some more movies with Chris Pine as Jack Ryan.  So if you get the change to check this one out, do so because you won’t be disappointed. The Mobile Movie Man has spoken!!!!
