Synopsis


Clear and Present Danger
This is the third film based on Tom Clancy's high-tech espionage potboilers starring CIA deputy director Jack Ryan. Harrison Ford, returning to the Ryan role after his first go-round in 1992's Patriot Games, is assigned to a delicate anti-drug investigation after a close friend of the President (a Reaganesque Donald Moffat) is murdered by a Colombian drug cartel. When Ryan discovers that the President's wealthy friend was in league with the cartel, the President's devious national security adviser (Harris Yulin) and an ambitious CIA deputy director (Henry Czerny) send a secret paramilitary force into Colombia to wipe out the drug lords. The force is captured and then abandoned by the President's lackeys. It falls to Ryan to enter Colombia and rescue them, aided only by a renegade operative named Clark (Willem Dafoe), with both his life and career on the line. ~ Don Kaye, Rovi

    I like this movie a lot. I'm a big Tom Clancy fan and I enjoy nearly everything that I've seen starring Harrison Ford. The plot is realistic and includes some very tense moments. When Jack Ryan's (Harrison Ford) is in the jungle trying to save his CIA operatives from the Columbian drug lord. The final 30 min. of the film will keep you on the edge of your seat. This is a worthwhile addition to Harrison Ford's work and does more than justice to Tom Clancy's book.

    'Patriot Games' Was Better

    I never saw 'Hunt for Red October,' so I can only compare this film, based off the Tom Clancy novel, to it's predecessor titled 'Patriot Games.' To make a long story short, Harrison Ford still plays his role well, but the problem arises in that, much like 'Patriot Games,' the movie itself just isn't that spectacular in my opinion. Widescreen.

    Love all of the Tom Clancy movies and especially the Jack Ryan character. Nobody brings Jack to life like Harrison Ford. I have a list of movies I give to young people that they should see and this movie is diffidently on that list. Love it!

    Loved this movie as a kid. Happy to have it in my collection. It’s a near-perfect movie imo — has good action, good dialogue, and Harrison Ford does an excellent job in the role.

    This movie stays pretty much in line with the book and keeps moving with just enough character building to keep you up on who's who. Loved it at the theater and will enjoy watching it again and again. Friends have already borrowed it.

    Any fan of Jack Ryan, Tom Clancy, Harrison Ford or just great movies should be required to own this movie. The only thing I wish is that Harrison Ford had to do all of the Jack Ryan books and not just a few.
