I personally thought this was a great movie! I have seen most of the original Jack Ryan movies and I thought it stayed true. I found a few scenes disturbing but otherwise it was great!

A film starring Kenneth Branagh and Emma Thompson (Samuel Goldwyn, 1993)

A prince plays matchmaker while his brother plots sinister mischief.

C+ (Okay).

It's not a bad movie, especially considering (1) I don't like the play, or any Shakespeare comedies, and (2) one of the lead actors is awful.

Didn't realize it would be a retelling of the first Thor movie but that's exactly what it was. One big meh.
