I like the new Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit better than most of the previous Jack Ryan movies.  After starting with a bang, it shows how Jack Ryan is recruited by CIA, then goes on to investigate shady businesses done by Russians.  As a spy movie, it never reaches the large-scale action, scope, or depth of recent 007 movies, but it is quite competent on its own, and especially compared to previous efforts.

P.S. I like the quasi Unix shell scripts shown in the background during the credits.
