A new version of the saga of CIA analyst, Jack Ryan. It begins when Ryan was attending the London School of Economics; and 9/11 happened. He would then enlist in the Marines and would go to Afghanistan. The chopper he was on would get shot down and he would suffer severe injuries that would require intense rehab. While there, he grabs the attention of a man named Harper, who works for the CIA and would like him to finish his studies and get a job on Wall Street so he can find out of any terrorist plot through their finances. A few years later, Ryan finds anomalies in the accounts of a Russian named Cherevin. Jack thinks he should go to Russia to find out what's going on. Jack was told not to tell anyone who he is and that includes his girl friend Cathy. But she catches Jack in some lies which makes her doubt him. Jack goes to Russia and Cherevin assigns him someone to take care of him. But when they're alone the man tries to kill Jack. So Jack kills him. Obvious Cherevin is hiding ...
|nudity||2 brief kisses. A women is shown in a long towel (down to her knees) and moves across the room to pick things up in one brief scene. In a flashback scene the couple are seen in bed together. You only see the woman's bare shoulders and part of the man's chest/back, everything else is covered with the bed sheets. At the end of that scene the man moves and leans over top of the woman to kiss, then the scene is cut.|
|violence||The movie is about a terrorist plot in the aftermath of 9/11 to collapse the U.S. economy. The violence in this movie is more amped-up than other Jack Ryan movies, since this one is modern. The violence is relentless with many gun, fist, and knife fights throughout. However it is not that much more graphic than a Bourne or Bond movie. Some blood is seen, but this is only from gunshot wounds, and in one scene, a man hits another man across the face with brass knuckles. In the introductory scene, Jack is seen in a helicopter. The enemy fires a missile at the helicopter, sending it crashing. He is later seen with a hideously burnt face and we learn that he has almost broken his spine (it is fixed) A woman is slapped across the face and gets tortured briefly.|
|profanity||2 clear uses of the F-word. 'Shit' is also used on a few occasions Some uses of asshole, bitch, damn, hell Jesus used in a non-respectful manner|
|alcohol||One man sticks himself with a syringe, however this is assumed to be prescription for his advanced cirrhosis. In a dinner scene alcohol is consumed. Jack Ryan gets 'drunk' in order to complete a mission. He offers prescription drugs to a man, and then pretends to take them himself but instead drops them into his lap.|
|frightening||A missile hits a helicopter, and the camera shows footage of the inside of the helicopter as it happens. Later, one of the survivors is seen bloody and injured in a care unit. A man stabs a man in the throat, it is sudden.|
