`Hunt for Red October', with its strong central performances and taut direction, was always going to be a tough act to follow. For this entry into the Ryan series Harrison Ford steps up to the plate as Ryan, and really carries the film with an excellent performance.

After foiling a seeming IRA attempt to kidnap a prominent British Royal, one of the terrorists forms a grudge against Ryan and his family, and vows to kill them. Sean Bean is the psychotic killer, putting in a suitable single minded and cold performance.

Well written, with well staged action set pieces and a decent mystery as Ryan and his friends try to track down the terrorists, this is an involving and entertaining film.

This edition presents the film in its proper widescreen, with a really good 5.1 surround sound. There is also a DTS soundtrack, which sounds really good. There is a decent set of extras, all in all this is a package well worth getting.

Ford is at his best when playing an ordinary person forced to confront violence,extreme pressure or overwhelming circumstances that corner him and make him fight back and defend himself and family.

That is the scenario for many of his most successful films such as The Fugitive - Special Edition [DVD] [1993],Frantic [DVD] [1988],Air Force One [DVD] [1997] to name just a few.

Here he plays a non-military CIA analyst caught up in a plot to kill a member of British royalty.He also has to face Sean Beans character of an extremely psychotic IRA killer out to wipe out Ford's family in revenge for the death of his brother at the hands of Ford.

This is as well done as the previously mentioned films;full of pace,intrigue and well staged action with every actor putting in solid believable performances.The film delivers entertainment.

I've recently watched and reviewed The Manchurian Candidate/Rules Of Engagement/The Sum Of All Fears [DVD],a great box set of thoughtful,quality thrillers---this will sit nicely alongside and there's good reason to rewatch all of them in the future as they are full of detail,action and professional performances by all the actors(except Ben Affleck.Wooden.).

Having seen this film on TV a few times I still consider it a great film.
A good storie with good acting by Harrison Ford, Sean Bean. Sean bean's caricature wanting revenge for the death of his brother by an exe CIA man (Harrison ford) and his single minded aim to kill the CIA agent and wont allow anything to get in his way what so ever.
Harrison Ford's role is also brilliant, as a exe CIA man who was a office man doing research and not a field person is great. His action to intervien when he sees an attempt on some one's life results in one terrorist killed by himself in a struggle and capture of another. The resulting actions of Harrison ford being of a man who did what he thought right at the time who is no hero but a devoted husband and father who is cought up in something that he has no control over leading to a brilliant climax and showing that hero's are people just trying to stay a live when someone is out to kill them.
I have added this to my collection of this set of films and also both of my Harrison Ford & Sean Bean collections also.

With a mature, well paced story and some keenly defined characters, I find this the most satisfying Jack Ryan adventure to date. The strong cinematography deftly handles the lush rolling hills of Ireland as well as the barren desert settings of the middle east. The musical score makes its presence felt, particularly during an early windswept approach to an isolated hillside cottage. Ford portrays Ryan with a quiet rage whilst Sean Bean excels as his polar opposite, who projets an impulsive, impetuous menace. I've trawled through a fair bit of Clancy and find his narrative tortuously technical at times so I thought the screenplay did a refreshingly solid job of giving us an involved and exciting story without having to telegraph every little plot point, motivation or context.

The second movie (and incarnation) of ex-marine lieutenant/turned analyst Jack Ryan (Harrison Ford : good as always), thwart off an assassination attempt of a British Monarch (James Fox) in Central London by a renegade terrorist group, a member of the Sean Miller (Sean Bean : who is excellent as the villain), witnesses his younger brother shot dead by Ryan.

Soon after Ryan and his family becomes the target of a vengeful Miller, who'll stop at nothing to reach his goal. Ryan, assisted by allies (James Earl Jones, Anne Archer and J.E Freeman etc), they all in their own way defeat the terrorists.

Directed by Philip Noyce (Dead Calm, Clear and Present Danger), shows that he is more than capable of doing action-thrillers, and with excellent performances throughout, those who are looking for a couple hours of solid entertainment, stop right here - you won't be disappointed!.

The seller is fine. The problem is the Amazon UK website which regularly adds items that I have not ordered, i.e. in this case it added an extra Patriot Games DVD which slipped by me, so I end up paying more than I wanted to. Later today, I received an extra 3 pack of Lavender Soap that I didn't order, but Amazon website had made it 2 items instead of 1.

The reason I am putting this here is that Amazon are not responding ? Yet, this has happened to me numerous times over the past year and I have managed to catch some of the automatically added items, i.e. 6 of the same item in one case which I stopped at the last minute. I have wasted about 30 to 40 over the past year on items that Amazon UK website is adding (not me), and items that I didn't realise had been automatically added until it was too late, i.e. I had received them. I end up giving numerous DVD's away.
