The first trailer has just been released for Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit, and the titular character seems to be more action star than desk-jockey analyst. Certainly Chris Pine seems to be up to the challenge of playing the character created by Tom Clancy, and the fact that Kenneth Branagh is both directing and starring as the villain certainly bodes well for the flick. But this uneven trailer, and the fact that Keira Knightley seems to be playing The Whiny Wife, leaves us wondering if this movie will live up to the Jack Ryan movies that starred Alec Baldwin and Harrison Ford (#NODIRESPECTTOBENAFFLECK #OkOnlyALittleDisrespectToBenAffleck). Hopefully we won't be disappointed when the movie opens this Christmas.
