    Synopsis


    The Hunt for Red October
    The first of several films based on Tom Clancy's "Jack Ryan" technothrillers, Hunt for Red October stars Alec Baldwin as eccentric CIA analyst Ryan and Sean Connery as Soviet submarine commander Marko Ramius. Ramius sets the plot in motion when he murders his political adviser, burns his orders, and steers his sub Red October towards American waters, hoping to defect. The CIA, aware that the Red October was about to embark on an evasive mission to demonstrate its ability to avoid detection and fire its nuclear missiles upon U.S. installations, believes that Ramius is insane, and that he plans to start World War III. To cover their own behinds, the Russians back up the CIA's suspicion. Only Jack Ryan believes that Ramius' mission is not as apocalyptic as it seems -- and it is Ryan who is assigned to infiltrate the Red October to prove his theory. The sort of film that in an earlier era would have been called a "thinking man's thriller," The Hunt for Red October ushered in a new series of Hollywood-produced post-Cold War adventure films, including 1995's Crimson Tide. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

    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

    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

    The Sum of All Fears
    The successful franchise of Paramount motion pictures based on novelist Tom Clancy's techno-thrillers featuring heroic CIA intelligence analyst Jack Ryan stages a much-publicized "do-over" with this action-adventure that recasts the character of Ryan as a rookie to the complex game of geopolitical warfare. Ben Affleck takes the reins from Harrison Ford as Ryan, a greenhorn CIA historian and analyst who finds himself thrust front and center into the spy community's spotlight when Nemerov (Ciaran Hinds), a Russian politician on whom Ryan is an expert, suddenly becomes the leader of the former Soviet Union upon the current president's unexpected demise. Attached to the director of the CIA, Cabot (Morgan Freeman), Ryan insists -- contrary to the opinions of many high-ranking White House officials -- that Nemerov is not a warmonger. Meanwhile, a cadre of neo-fascists, led by Dressler (Alan Bates), plots the detonation at the Super Bowl in Baltimore, MD, of a nuclear device recovered from a long-ago Israeli fighter jet crash, a terrorist incident they intend to spark a war between the super powers, leaving them to conquer the world in the conflict's post-apocalyptic vacuum. The Sum of All Fears co-stars James Cromwell, Bridget Moynahan, and Liev Schreiber as covert operative John Clark, a character central to another series of Clancy's best-selling tomes. ~ Karl Williams, Rovi

      Espionage, not superspy

      Tom Clancy's CIA operative Jack Ryan headlined six novels and, in 1989, was first personified by Alec Baldwin in the submarine chasing thriller The Hunt For Red October, which also starred Sean Connery. With the success of that film, plans were put forward to film the remaining Jack Ryan stories as a "James Bond for the 1990s" (the Bond films being "off air" due to legal wrangling at the time) and Philip Noyce immediately began directorial duties on Patriot Games. Alec Baldwin priced himself out of continuing as Ryan, so Harrison Ford was brought in to spearhead the projected franchise. With its IRA storyline, Patriot Games was controversial but successful. The 1995 follow up, A Clear and Present Danger, did not manage the same appeal and Ford retired from the role, much to Tom Clancy's relief as he felt Ford to be too old anyway. Eight years later, Ben Affleck debuted as a younger Ryan in The Sum of All Fears, but hopes that this would reboot the Jack Ryan franchise proved fruitless. Plans to film the remaining novels have remained in the ideas department, though there are whisperings of a new movie featuring a new actor in the role. Here is hoping.

      Great Collection Poor packaging trick

      The Jack Ryan movies - whether Jack is played by Harrison Ford, Ben Affleck or Chris Pine - remain favorites of mine. What I thought was being advertised here by Best Buy was a single package of 4 discs in a collection. What arrived were individual blu rays wrapped together with a sleeve around them. I already had these movies individually on DVD and was looking to reduce space and upgrade to blu rays. Guess I got half of what I wanted! Buyers be aware - THIS "COLLECTION" IS SIMPLY A CARDBOARD SLEEVED GROUP OF 4 BLU RAYS. If that's what you want, you're golden here. If you were looking, as I was, for a single blue ray container with 4 discs, this is NOT it.

      While it's great to get four movies together for a good price, it's sad that Paramount failed to put much effort into this particular box set. The movies look and sound great, but three of the four are very light on bonus features. Plus, the studio couldn't be bothered to combine the packaging into one compact, space-saving case, but instead just slapped the four individual Blu-Ray cases together and put a bulky box around them.

      Now that the Clancy Jack Ryan series is being re-imagined and re-started, you can get all the originals in one convenient box set. If you've been waiting to buy the Jack Ryan movies, wait no more. Who knows where the new re-launch of Jack Ryan will end up but now you can make sure you have the movies the way you remember them. You will also save some money by buying the set rather than the individual movies.

      This Series of Jack Ryan is A+ movie material. Cinematography is well done. Action, Suspense and always a great storyline keep you wanting more. I suggest you buy the 5th Shadow recruit movie and watch it first. Even though it was filmed later, it is actually movie #1. We watched a move a night and found ourselves wanting more after watching the last movie!!

      I alwsys enjoyed Hunt for Red October and Jack Ryans character. Seeing tthe other three movies in this blu ray set is a treat. If you enjoy Jack Ryan as a character, getting this 4 movie blu ray set is a no brainer. Covering three of the 4 actors who played the role (Baldwin, Ford and Affleck) you get a wide variety of adventure. Well worth it.

      I had Hunt for Red October already on DVD. My copy of Sum of All Fears was scratched. I wanted Clear and Present Danger. And I had never seen Patriot Games. So this was the best thing I could have bought. Plus, I was looking for this on DVD, but then found it on Blu-ray for less than the listed DVD price. Score!
