Two of Britain’s greatest gifts to Hollywood, top director Kenneth Branagh and the impossibly beautiful Keira Knightly, join forces with rising star Chris Pine and double Oscar winner Kevin Costner in a new tale about Jack Ryan, one of the world’s most popular fictional law enforcers.

The life of a young marine recovering from an injury sustained in combat in Afghanistan takes a double turn when he is not only recruited by the CIA, but also falls madly in love. On a subsequent mission to Moscow, he very nearly loses his life and his wife-to-be.

Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit will feature tonight (August 9) on M-Net Movies Showcase DStv Channel 108 at 20h00. Directed by Kenneth Branagh in 2013, the action thriller has a rating of 13V.
