Buy it... if five to ten minutes of melodic material typical to Patrick Doyle's past is a substantial enough attraction to justify an otherwise workmanlike regurgitation of electronic techno-thriller tones founded by other composers.

Avoid it... if you expect the entertaining themes of this score to be adapted effectively into the remainder, the long suspense and chase sequences basically sufficient but mundane and anonymous.

Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit: (Patrick Doyle) For most of the 2000's, Paramount tried to resurrect the dormant Jack Ryan franchise that had run from The Hunt for Red October in 1990 to The Sum of All Fears in 2002. The fiscal juggernaut of a franchise had always followed the Tom Clancy novels from which the main character was devised, though at the time of Clancy's coincidental death late 2013, the studio was putting the finishing touches on the first film adaptation of the character not to be based upon one of the author's works. For 2014's delayed and somewhat maligned Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit, the story is fresh despite maintaining the basic elements of any Ryan plot: government agencies, conspiracies, terrorism, and technological advancement. Taking over as Ryan is "Star Trek" captain Chris Pine, his mentor signed for this film and its successor being Kevin Costner. After Kenneth Branagh came onto the project late to direct, he was also cast as the film's villain, proving between this role, the one in Wild Wild West, and everything in between, that he'll try any ethnic twist as long as he's able to chew up the scenery. The story involves the Branagh character as a Russian tycoon interested in manipulating markets to plunge America into fiscal disaster, though you can be sure that there's a terrorist bomb and a city chase involved at the climax. With Branagh into the production came composer Patrick Doyle, his longtime musical collaborator and friend. The assignment of Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit occupied the better part of a year for Doyle, who has stated that the process of creating the musical tone for the film was one of artistic liberty largely free of some of the industry's usual meddling and time constraints. Doyle and Branagh agreed early that the topic required electronically-leaning music, though with Doyle you can always expect at least some role for traditional instrumentation. The composer had already begun a career transformation in the blockbusters Thor and Rise of the Planet of the Apes, both projects requiring the him to adapt his style to meet the expectations of an industry in the 2010's that demands certain bass-heavy, rhythmic musical elements in its scores. This evolution for Doyle is complete in Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit, a work that still contains underutilized glimpses of Doyle's melodic sensibilities but could very easily be considered a wholesale interpretation of John Powell's extensive development of this genre of music in the 2000's.
