    Jack Ryan is still fun, despite being a little bit ridiculous and predictable.

    Jack Ryan is fun and forgettable, exciting and predictable.

    Krasinski elevates the character simply by the fact that we just want to pinch his cheeks. Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan is meat-and-potatoes spy thriller entertainment, and now has its equally accessible character to drive it.

    The second season still lands with more dissonance because of the very aspect that should make the character feel more relevant – that is, its proximity to reality. ... The problem may be that Krasinski’s Jack Ryan is closely informed by other actor’s interpretations of the character, namely Harrison Ford’s. Amazon’s “Jack Ryan” still clings to an outdated action movie ethos that relies on a general ignorance about the way the world actually is versus a version of how it ought to be when Michael Bay was redefining action movie bombast.

    If Season 1 wasn’t your bag, there are no significant changes to the series’ DNA here to suddenly turn you around on the series. And while there’s enough good in Jack Ryan Season 2 to keep it from being a complete waste, I do hope the already-ordered third season takes a beat to fine-tune a few key aspects of the show.

    The season’s length strains the effectiveness of its throwback sensibilities, passable action choreography, and formulaic characters—attributes which may be better suited for standalone feature films.

Greer character doesn't tell anyone he has a heart condition, but he runs after bad guys and goes in to the jungle on a Black Ops mission? The Venezuelan "Nationalist" thinks its a good idea to murder a US Senator as a way to cover up his activities? And since when is Venezuela Nationalist, not Socialist? Very average acting and plot cracks out the ying/yang. Full Review »

I'm sure it will appeal to those who like Black and White action dramas that show the U.S. in a positive light. It's entertaining but never informative. It's also an insult to the realities in Venezuela. Trump would love it! Full Review »

    This review contains spoilers, click full review link to view. Terrible, de ser una serie inteligente con buenos personajes y trama interesante se volvió una serie genérica y torpe, predecible y terriblemente aburrida; Jack Ryan ya no es el súper analista ahora es Jack Rambo, rebelde y torpe y parece que no puede descifrar ni cuanto es dos más dos. Cathy Muller (quien en los libros y las películas es su esposa, y su novia en la primera temporada) simplemente desaparece; y la arrogancia de Jack es torpe, aburrida y a ratos simplemente estúpida. A Jim Greer lo convierten en este tipo infamemente egoísta y que decir del Personaje de Noomi Rapace; la peor Femme Fatale de la historia; la tratan de hacer misteriosa y además le miente a Jack todo el tiempo y el le cree, siempre. Lastima la primera temporada fue genial y esta es simplemente patética. Full Review »
