Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit (2014) - full transcript

This new version of the saga of CIA analyst Jack Ryan begins as Jack attends the London School of Economics. 9/11 happens. He subsequently enlists in the Marines, sustaining severe injuries when the chopper deploying him to Afghanistan is shot down. While in intense rehab, he grabs the attention of Harper, a man who works for the CIA and who would like Jack to finish his studies, get a job on Wall Street, and seek out terrorist plots through their financial transactions. Ten years pass. Jack finds anomalies in the accounts of a Russian named Cherevin and thinks he should go to Russia to check out what's going on. He's told not to tell anyone who he is, including his girlfriend Cathy, which makes her doubt him when she catches him in some lies. In Russia, Cherevin assigns someone to assist Jack, but when the two are alone, the man tries to kill Jack instead, so Jack kills him. Obviously, Cherevin is hiding something. Jack goes to meet him and says he'll bring his fiancée along, but when Cathy shows up, Jack has to tell her the truth. Harper says Cathy has to go with Jack when she meets Cherevin. Jack doesn't want her to but Cathy says she's going, so the action begins that leads to the climax.

Sorokin wants to meet you now.

Ten minutes.

Yes, Minister.

I warned them of the
outcome at the U.N...

it was entirely predictable.

It was a mistake for
us to force a vote.

You started moving assets when the

vote went against us, I hope?

Yes, Minister.

You understand the Kremlin must
remain entirely distanced.

Anything you activate

must be self-contained.

Is it the hour for 'Lamentations'?


The Russian government
is unaware...

of any such activity or operation.

But of course.


The Kremlin.

Yes, yes.

We will avenge our mother Russia.

You will avenge our family.

America will bleed.

Good luck, Aleksandr.

Everyone is in place, sir,
in America and in Moscow.

Let it begin.

He's dangerous.

I lost him.

ls everything in place?

Yes, Mr. Cherevin, our asset in
the U.S. has been contacted.

He's prepared?

Yes, sir. Merely
awaiting your order.

We will strike... tomorrow.

Very well, sir. Sell orders
have all been entered.

It's time.

We will activate our
asset immediately.

It was stupid to mention the job.

A real mother would.

It wasn't necessary.


Today's reading is from the
Book Of Lamentations...

chapter 2, verse 2...


We've been activated.

Thank God.

He has torn down the strongholds

of the daughter of Judah.

He has brought her kingdom...

and its princes down to
the ground in dishonor.

The timing of the attack
has been brought forward.

We leave tonight.

Take nothing with you.

There is one loose
end to tie up first.

Seal the elevators.

No one goes in or out.

Find Cherevin now!

Your wallet, let me see it.

Have them followed.

We are tracking them.

The same old weaknesses, Viktor.




Your son would be ashamed.

Ryan has it.

The market has opened in
New York, Mr. Cherevin.

Margin calls from creditors
are imminent. Do we sell?

Not yet.

We recommend immediate
execution of sell orders.


Trading is about to be
suspended in New York.

Mr. Cherevin, we need to act now.

Please... Aleksandr.

Sorokin wants to meet you now.

It was always for Russia.

So is this.
