The first season of “Jack Ryan” was good being realistic down to earth approach filled with dialogues and exploring the back story of the antagonist Mousa Bin Suleiman and trying to bring in pity over him. Some of the best dialogues were delivered in this season of the show and by Ali Suleiman who played the role of Mousa in the season 1.
Direction of the first season is good and holds you on to the story whereas the screenplay and cinematography are way not too bad. The music and shooting places along with the budget of the show impresses sometimes.
The second season of ” Jack Ryan ” brings the story to the sky and building it evidently by using leads that Jack has been working on in order to unfold the story behind satellite launches near Venezuela. The second season explores Jack Ryan’s more combat abilities and a soldier soul. He sometimes does not think about other’s lives and that is his mistake. Wendell Pierce has got a heart disease and continues to hide it from the CIA which eventually lays down the story behind him maybe leaving the sets of Jack Ryan.
The cinematography is good but what is best is the screenplay in this one. The scenes and the way the story evolves from a short Venezuela trip to hunting down the Venezuelan President impresses. You will like this season if you wanna see Jack Ryan chasing some sniper on the roofs of London houses then this is surely going to be a thing you will love. This season is action packed and thriller. Personally , better and good transformation from the first.
Amazon prime has already renewed the series for an another season in February 2019. It will be good to see Jack Ryan back on some new mission and will we get to see James Greer ? Let’s see.
