Characters based on the author Tom Clancy's novels, a young CIA covert analyst named Jack Ryan works his magic in a film where he uncovers a Russian plot to destroy the U.S. economy with a terrorist attack.This action, thriller stars Chris Pine, Kevin Costner and Kiera Knightley.

In a nutshell, Kevin Costner (Thomas Harper) recruits Chris Pine (Jack Ryan) to be a financial analyst, who finds himself in Russia to track the movement of money used for terroristic activity.

When Jack receives his doctorate from the London School of Economics the action soon begins. While Jack is working on Wall Street he notices his firms Russian partner is doing something odd with their accounts and he ends up in Russia to audit their books, they realize Jack is on to them. Their mission to stop Jack before he stops them.

I give the film a 3.5 out of 5 simply because the ending is pretty clear to predict. It's definitely worth the dime and your time. I think Pine plays the best Jack Ryan to date.
