All the Old Knives Review

All the Old Knives is now airing on Prime Video.

Just eight years ago, Chris Pine starred Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit, another in Paramount’s long line of efforts to restart Tom Clancy’s everyman spy. Although this ambitious franchise was released on the big screen (do not worry, Ryan is alive and well on TV as played by John Krasinski), Pine fit in well with his character and world, so his top series in All Old Knives, now airing on Amazon Prime (right next to Jack Ryan’s current incarnation), marks a welcome return to the star genre –– albeit under insanely different orders.

Based on the 2015 novel of the same name by Olen Steinhauer, All the Old Knives alludes to the spy pots of an earlier era, alluding (to ambition if not execution) to John Le Carre. Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy the The Tailor of Panama.
