Default Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit 4K - HDD Review

An original plot inspired by the beloved Tom Clancy character, Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit is a pseudo-prequel reboot of the franchise, giving Ryan different motivations with slight changes to his history. Starring Chris Pine, Kevin Costner and Keira Knightley, director Kenneth Branagh, who also co-stars as the protagonist, balances the suspense of intelligence gathering with typical action thrills, but the movie ultimately doesn't live up to the expectations set by previous installments. As part of the ten-disc Jack Ryan film series collection from Paramount, the espionage thriller fights dangerous covert missions on 4K Ultra HD with an excellent Dolby Vision presentation and a fantastic DTS-HD MA soundtrack. Porting over the same set of supplements as the Blu-ray, the overall package is Recommended for Jack Ryan fans and UHD enthusiasts.

If I were to give Paramount a grade on these Jack Ryan movies I will say they get a C. They've upgraded the picture somewhat and included DV, but opted out of DTS X or Dolby Atmos, which in this stage of the game is just plain lazy.
LOL. The Amazon link says "List Price $69.99" and then says "Sale price $89.99."

Indeed, I might consider this set at $40. Paramount isn’t likely to revisit these anytime soon, laziness has been they’re calling card since forever.
