The series utilizes every screen time it could get to showcase Noah Centineo’s face and body

ares 3 starsGeek Rate: Mortal Worthy (3 out of 5 stars). Having to see Noah Centineo on a large screen and pausing it every time he’s on is enough to watch this series, seriously. “The Recruit” offers good writing and suspense that would glue the audience on the screen. The fact that this is based on a real-life story makes this series more intense to watch.

The series’ plot is not hard to follow. It’s a combination of the usual action, comedy, and drama. Noah plays Owen Hendricks, a newbie lawyer working for the CIA. There are plenty of CIA-based shows out there but the plot will not bring the audience CIA fatigue. This is in part due to the fact that this is a real-life story. Also, the inner workings of the agency presented here are angled differently.

Owen is given the case of an asset who is threatening to spill some of the agency’s secrets. As he worked on the asset’s case, he becomes entangled with the agency’s complex bureaucracy and politics.

The production utilizes every screen time they could get to showcase Noah’s face and body. No complaints there. Noah portrayed his character with justice, a lost, young lawyer who is plunged head-on to a dangerous task. The script has enough comedy written on it to lift the story’s serious undertone. Not to mention the endless action (shootings, explosions, all that stuff). But the underlying mystery will keep the audience on their edge.
