I was not a big fan of the Jack Ryan movies after Hunt for Red October. But this one is a solid mix of action and suspense. Branagh does a great job with the direction. It's a reboot that actually works.
Great cast gets lost in a superficial treatment of a complicated subject. It seems retarded it's being sold as a romantic comedy. The only story line that works is the one between Tim Robbins and Patrick Fugit. Both are fantastic in the film.
