After receiving the Blu-ray/DVD combo pack, I couldn't wait to see Kevin Costner and Chris Pine act together. I admit both men are easy on the eyes but that's not what makes this a great gift idea. It's the storyline and action that's going to be appreciated by the guys in your life.
The movie features the Jack Ryan character who is found in Tom Clancy's books series. Things start of with a glimpse of what has happened in Ryan's life before getting into the spy action of double crossing and car chases. The acting is well done (Costner is awesome as cold all business CIA veteran) and you will get drawn into the story until the amazing ending.
If your guys like movies like The Hunt for Red October, Patriot Games, and Clear and Present Danger, then he's going to enjoy Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit.
Based on the CIA analyst created by espionage master Tom Clancy, “Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit” is a blistering action thriller that follows Ryan (Chris Pine, “Star Trek”) from his quiet double-life as a veteran-turned-Wall Street executive to his all-out initiation as a hunted American agent on the trail of a massive terrorist plot in Moscow.
