Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit

Question: What spills onto the floor in the hotel fight when the toilet is broken? It looks like some form of insulation.

Answer: From what I could tell, at the beginning you see a smoky glass partition (or glass-like) by the toilets. I could really tell what for, maybe a changing area. Before the toilet gets broken, this partition gets shot and shatters. That's what's on the floor. But I can't see how it could get around the toilet like it does without some mistake.

Question: When Costner meets Jack Ryan for the first time he calls him John P. Ryan twice instead of Jack. Nowhere else in the movie did I here him referred to as John. Am I missing something? (00:08:15)

Answer: This is true of all versions of the character - his name's officially John Patrick Ryan, but he always goes by Jack.

Answer: In all the original movies he was Jack his sons name was John so I thought he was the son of Jack.

Factual error: Jack Ryan takes the enlisted oath, not the officer's oath, when commissioned into the Marines. (00:02:35)
