Synopsis


Patriot Games
In Patriot Games, Harrison Ford plays former CIA agent Jack Ryan, taking over from Alec Baldwin, who had played author Tom Clancy's brainy protagonist in Hunt for Red October. This time around, Ryan foils an attempted assassination, thereby incurring the wrath of a maniacal Irish radical (Sean Bean). After seemingly neutralizing the villains, and deciding to celebrate the occasion with his wife (Anne Archer) and daughter (Thora Birch), everything appears to be back to normal; then all hell breaks loose. Author Tom Clancy himself bemoaned the liberties taken with his novel in the final sequences; the picture scored with audiences, however, and soon inspired a followup, A Clear and Present Danger (1994), also starring Ford. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

    Exciting action film with political overtones

    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) family is targeted for a revenge attack by a rogue IRA cell, the story rises above mere politics and becomes personal. The final 30 min. of the film will keep you on the edge of your seat. The only drawback is that the politics (IRA terrorism) is somewhat dated today in view of the settlement between the UK government and the IRA leadership. That aside, it is a worthwhile addition to Harrison Ford's work and does more than justice to Tom Clancy's book.

    Jack Ryan saves the Royal family

    Harrison Ford's is excellent in his first Jack Ryan movie after replacing Alec Baldwin who starred in THE HUNT FOR RED OCTOBER. The movie plot has Ryan saving a member of the Royal family from being assassinated by a renegade IRA splinter group who then seeks revenge on Ryan. Sean Bean is impressive as the renegade IRA leader who travels to the US to kill Ryan after Ryan killed his brother. The movie is enjoyable, although very contrived at times which weakens its credibility.

    It's the second film in the Jack Ryan series with Harrison Ford replacing Alec Baldwin (It's a shame that Baldwin didn't continue playing Jack Ryan because I think it would have been a good career move but what are you gonna do). The pacing is a little bit slow compared to The Hunt For Red October, but the movie isn't bad at all. I liked the image quality and I thought Harrison Ford did a pretty good job playing Jack Ryan.

    The picture shows a blu-ray/DVD combo but it's just the blu-ray copy. Despite that, it's a good action thriller with a great cast that is worth multiple viewings, especially if you're a fan of Harrison Ford.

    A classic espionage/political thriller with Harrison Ford as Jack Ryan. The Metalpak it looks a little fragile in comparison to steelbooks but I did enjoy the design and its glossy format. Get it if you are a fan of Mr. Ford.

    I purchased this title for the Steelbook packaging as advertised on the BB web site. It is NOT the steelbook, but the older Metal-Pak packaging. Be wary if you only want the steelbook.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    It had been a long time since I have seen this film, but have always been a fan of it. So it was a nice surprise to find it in steel book. It was great looking and even after alot of years it's still a great movie.
