I loved the series! I am looking forward to seeing how they gradually reveal
more about Jack Ryan. It's ok with me that the focus started with the
brothers. We get a "fresh start" in learning more about a character we
have seen before. We may just have to be patient. There is GOOD TENSION in
that type of development I find. I like that he is still a mystery in this
series. Well done!
I started watching it and liked it so much, that I limited myself to the first
third of part 1, then the second third 4 days later and will get the final third
of part 1 this coming Saturday night. I do this with tv shows I like so they
I do agree on the nudity scene(s). I ignored it, I guess - when someone posted
that it was, again, disappointing, I couldn't recall it.Maybe I
walked out at the moment for a glass of water. Deliberately, some times.There is too much trash out there, thrust into our living rooms.
I saw the 8 episodes in a watching blitz almost with my husband. We thought it
was a good show. Scene flow was logical. There were a few open areas where
maybe detail was required but I'm always that way when a story line is too
short. I want it Longer !Over all, I am looking forward to Season
2. I just read it was approved.They aren't making Jack Ryan
movies, and the author has been dead (4-5) years. I thought the feel of this
story line followed the author's books. They did change Kathy's
medical specialty; it was bothering me and my husband brought it up. That's
ok. That was fine.
Entertaining series. Of course, if any adult content offends, or if you need
"trigger warnings" (whatever those are), probably best to stick with the
I have been disappointed in almost everything Amazon produces in movies. For
some dumb reason, I expected those shows to be more like those the BBC puts on
public TV. Not so. I won't be watching Amazon movies again.
I’m so tired of studios/directors feeling like they need to put garbage
I've watched the calendar, eager to watch the new Jack Ryan movie. Sorry
to read this review.... I will probably try to watch it anyway, but I really
dislike gratuitous sex & violence; also really hate a movie with a message -
just tell me the story! I'll relate to it on my own. Boo! And I get
weary of anti-American themes. Are world problems all our fault? Even if they
are, I want entertainment and a clever story with believable actors, not
propaganda! Thanks for the well-written, well thought out review!
As usual, the original books are better than the spin-off movies/TV series.
Pure, unmitigated trash that glorifies violence and promotes wanton sexuality. I
urge the public to boycott it.
... his turn as Jack Ryan falls flat. He feels almost too wholesome to be
believable as a hardened, troubled action hero.I haven't
watched the series yet, but but in the original Tom Clancy novels. Jack Ryan
starts out as a successful stockbroker (with a back injury, later helped by
surgery) and a history professor who is doing work for the CIA as a consulting
analyst. He is anything but a 'hardened, troubled action hero.'
Instead, he gets sucked into spy vs. spy stuff almost by accident (cf. Patriot
Games). Of course, that doesn't mean the series isn't weak
in its writing. :-)
You show Jack Ryan as not having a rating, I've seen promos for it that
clearly show a TV-MA rating. I'd hoped your review would include info as
to what that means, why the MA rating. Is it for language or violence or sex or
