During its release last week, the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) awarded its first "Movies For Grownups Seal" to the action-thriller film.
According to its website, the seal honors films that appeal to audiences who are aged 50 and above. For films to receive the award, a film must be reviewed by the AARP's editorial team and be subjected to hours of screening. The seal is AARP's newest addition to its Movies for Grownups program.
“We are delighted to announce the debut of the Movies for Grownups Movie Seal and are thrilled to award this distinction to JackRyan: Shadow Recruit,” said Myrna Blyth, the editorial director of AARP Media.
Although it isn't the same old Jack Ryan, Chris Pine has earned his mark alongside previous actors Harrison Ford and Alec Baldwin, who alsoplayed the role in previous films.
AARP also announced its "Top 10 Movies for Grownups of the Year." The list includes (according to rank): 12 Years A Slave, All Is Lost, Captain Phillips, Dallas Buyers Club, Enough Said, Gravity, Lee Daniels' The Butler, Nebraska, Philomena, and Saving Mr. Banks.
