    Showrunners Carlton Cuse and Graham Roland have perfectly reimagined Ryan for modern audiences. They certainly couldn’t have found a better actor to play him.

    Expertly plotted by creators Carlton Cuse and Graham Roland, Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan is all the more impactful for its restraint and scope, offering excellent character-based drama that’s concerned with much more than just its namesake.

    Solid, engaging, propulsive--and a little bit too familiar.

    The Jack Ryan name will cut through the clutter and polished production values and the solid Krasinski should help viewers choose this Oreo, even if it's only sometimes appreciably better than the store-brand sandwich cookie.

    Despite paying cursory service to humanizing its principal characters, Jack Ryan is mostly interested in a battle between broad notions of good and evil. It thrives on the tension of Jack's chess match with bin Suleiman, reducing an entire nation's efforts to combat terror to a personal beef between two archetypes.

    Until Jack Ryan finds a way to make its drama as compelling as its action scenes, it’ll go down as a mission not quite accomplished.

    It’s just odd to realize mid-way through that a show featuring this many explosions and gratuitous, all-too-familiar terrorist attacks can also be this boring. ... Krasinski lends an un-earned charisma to the character through sheer presence alone, but the nature of the character itself forces him into the background of most situations looking like he’d much, much rather be playing Minesweeper.

One of them even says "all the Muslim males are terrorists" Did you even watch the series? Jack Ryan's boss is one of the good guys and he's a f*cking MUSLIM!
    The series is good, extremely bingeable and truly entertaining. It is well paced, interesting and balanced (you actually get to see some of the story behind the "bad guys"). It is well produced and it keeps you entertained, it may not be game changing, but what more do you need for the weekend?

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. I must admit i have been pleasantly surprised by the serie . Krasinsky is beleivable in the role, Pierce steal the attention every time he shows up but he is a bit too similar to his role of Zane in suit . Cornished deserved a better character development. She had massive potential but despite a predictable plot and a few "stupid" plot holes (spoiler : being under CA protective custody and having access to internet , or entering the country while your face is on tv 24h/7 as ennemy number 1, ...o-0 ) i really appreciated that they did the effort to "humanise " the bad guys (drones pilots//terrorists) . Apply the same traumas and you can relate to their motivations or at least understand where they are coming from . Obviously as it s an american show there is a bit of propaganda to over look (we are the best and blah bla blah) but over all it was an enjoyable experience. Easy watch Expand

    Great cast deliver excellent performances. The Locations are interesting and the overall premise is worthy of the title.

    Sadly this show fails to deliver the quality setup from previous outings. Lackluster cinematography and action scene choreography betray the prevalent budget with the script failing to meet the detail of the scenarios being dealt with.

    Despite this I will say I had fun watching and will prob check out S2!

    - Every plot point is 100% cliche and predictable
    - Acting is passable
    - No suspense, no thrill, no mystery
    - Few scenes with cringey progressive propaganda
    Shame. I was hoping for solid spy-series. Anyway, you won't miss much if you skip this one. Better to rewatch "Homeland" or "Americans".

    I really wanted to like this. I'd bought into the various ad campaigns.
    I thought it could be like Homeland and present a different vision.

    I thought Amazon wanted to get into the premium shows market, unfortunately, Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan is full of so many tired tropes and just doesn't give us enough meat to want to overlook them. There's the 'bad guy that slips away at the last second' trick. The 'inept CIA agent who unwittingly helps the bad guy', darn it! The 'oh, he's running away, it never occurred to me to chase him' tension-builder. It's all just formulaic in a way that's no longer captivating in the golden age or TV.
