JACK RYAN: SHADOW RECRUIT is an action thriller in which a US marine, who has been injured in Afghanistan, is chosen by the C.I.A. to go undercover.

Violence

There are a number of fight scenes featuring heavy punches, kicks, strangleholds and other blows. There are also scenes in which people are shot with guns. However, there is no dwelling on the infliction of pain or injury, and the fights and other action violence are similar in nature to those in the 'Bourne' and 'Bond' films. There are a couple of scenes showing stabbings with knives. Although the moments of impact are not shown, there is brief sight of blood on the blades afterwards. In one scene, a man threatens a woman, slapping her face and placing a light bulb in her mouth, before she is rescued by the hero.

Injury detail

Bloody injuries and burns that have been sustained by the hero, during warfare, are presented within a medical context.

Language

There is a single use of strong language ('f**k'), as well as some milder bad language, including uses of 'bitch', 'screw' and 'shit'.

There is documentary footage of the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center in New York City, following the terrorist attacks of 9/11.

It also contains some moments of moderate threat and mild verbal sex references.
