Get Shadow Recruit Training, Jack Ryan Style


Tom Clancy's signature character returned to the screen this year with Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit starring Chris Pine as the iconic CIA analyst. Miltary.com has the exclusive premiere of the Shadow Recruit Training site, which takes you through a series of training missions that let you win entries to a contest where the winner gets a trip to the USA premiere of Transformers: Age of Extinction.


The site includes a Psychological Evaluation to determine whether you should be an operative or an analyst, a Scenario Evaluation to see how well you'd react in the field and a Data Decryption test that's actually a lot harder than you'd expect.

The folks at Paramount Studios created the site with some input from real-life security consultants (with actual CIA experience) at Security Management International and it's a lot of fun. It's probably more fun if you can make sense of the decryption test, but you can collect a few extra chances to win that Transformers trip even if you're not cut out to be a codebreaker.

Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit also stars  Kevin Costner as his Chris Pine's agency mentor and Keira Knightley as the girlfriend who never figured out that her man was a spook until it all goes wrong in Moscow. Kenneth Branagh did double duty as both the Russian villain and the film's director.

The Blu-ray and DVD will be available on June 10th and you can buy a digital copy now. Take the tests and enter the contest at the Shadow Recruit Training site.
