 In this movie, a prequel to the series featuring the same character, Chris Pine plays Jack Ryan.  We first see him as a financial analyst, super sharp.  Before long he gets recruited into the CIA.  Thinking it’s basically a desk job, he has no idea what he’s gotten himself into! Before long, he uncovers a Russian plot to crash the U.S. economy with a terrorist attack.

His mentor in the CIA is none other than Kevin Costner, who has seen his share of action, and action movies.  And Jack Ryan’s love interest is the lovely Keira Knightley.

Kenneth Branagh directs. Fun movie for date night.
