Jack Ryan season 3 review
Finder was lucky enough to attend the premiere of the first 2 episodes of Jack Ryan season 3 at Hoyts Entertainment Quarter in Sydney.
Utilities writer Dylan Crimsdale said, "After nearly 3 years away from our screens John Krasinski's Dr Jack Ryan is back delivering all the action, thrills and political twists and turns we've come to love.
"The first couple of episodes of season 3 set the tone so perfectly for the impending global catastrophe as we bounce across Europe from where Jack is stationed in Rome, Italy and then to Russia, Czech Republic and Greece.
"Accused of treason, Jack is going to have to uncover the plot to revive the USSR Sokol Project while on the run from the CIA and with an Interpol red notice out for his arrest.
"You're going to want to cancel all your plans, make a huge bowl of popcorn and dive right in."
Utilities editor Mariam Gabaji added, "The best part of Jack Ryan continues to be John Krasinski as season 3 goes into full throttle right from the get-go.
"There's suspense as you try to connect the dots. There's action, there's confusion and there's a whole lot of, 'Holy hell, what just happened?'.
"Given the first season was excellent, and the second season a good follow-up, I have high hopes for how season 3 unfolds.
"Here's to it following the same level of taut, pace and production quality we've grown to love from Jack Ryan."
