Reviews

From Amazon.co.uk

Let's see--he's been Han Solo in three films and Indiana Jones in three more. So why shouldn't Harrison Ford take on a new continuing character in Tom Clancy's CIA analyst Jack Ryan? In this film, directed by Phillip Noyce, Ford picked up the baton when Alec Baldwin, who played Ryan in The Hunt for Red October, opted for a Broadway role instead. In this film, Ryan and his family are on vacation when Ryan saves a member of the British royal family from attack by Irish terrorists. The next thing he knows, the Ryan clan has been targeted by the same terrorists, who invade his Maryland home. The film can't shed all of Clancy's lumbering prose, or his techno-dweeb fascination with spy satellites and the like. But no one is better than Ford at righteous heroism--and Sean Bean makes a suitably snakey villain. --Marshall Fine

Product Description

What begins as a holiday in England for the Ryan family abruptly ends when Jack Ryan encounters a lethal terrorist action. In succe ssfully thwarting the incident, Ryan is faced with an even deadlier challenge: protecting himself and his family as they become the next target of this radical terrorist group.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good blu ray transfer 28 Sep 2011
Format:Blu-ray
Although I note the concerns of the first 'review' I can't agree with it and can only assume that the 'hatching' observed on the screen is in relation to part of the opening credits when this phenomena is present. Nevertheless, the film is free of such concerns. I didn't observe any issues with the actual quality of the image. It was sharp and clean. The transfer is actually very good and I haven't noted any issues with audio either. All in all the film and transfer are good and the only question left to answer is whether or not it is worth buying or sticking with the VHS or DVD copy. Extras are very limited to a 'up close' featurette which is pretty feeble. Not bad at all on overall terms though.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Blu-Ray Transfer 30 Oct 2012
By Fleece
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Have put off upgrading for months and months due to bad reviews. Some reviews mention hatching etc on the film and a bad transfer.
Always been one of my favourite Harrison Ford films. Great story, pacing, acting and overall a fantastic action film.

Well, took the plunge this week and just watched it (btw on a 46" Samsung 3D LED TV). Opening Paramount logo had hatching on it. Wierd.
Thought, my god this is gonna be a waste of money! As the opening credits rolled it looked pretty good. Once the film started I realised
it was more than good. It was damned good. Ok, we're not talking about a Jaws type restoration here but compared to some dire Blu-Rays
I've bought (Basic Instict & What Wome Want) that look like the DVD version this Patriot Games is well worth it.

One mention. During the scene when Ryan is confronting the IRA grey jogging suit assassin his jacket seems to pulsate. Some scenes are
like that in Blu-Rays but very rare. Didn't put me off enjoying the entire movie.

Overall a fantastic purchase and well worth the upgrade. I'm damned happy I bought it. Typing this as the final dinner scene is happening.
I'm off for a cold beer and to watch the movie final where the IRA storm Ryan's house and that speedboat scrap with Sean Miller & Jack Ryan.

4.0 out of 5 stars Blu Ray transfer. 8 Oct 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This in my opinion is well worth upgrading from standard dvd to BR.Everyone knows the film so this is reviewing the transfer only.
The transfer is clean and satisfying but at times I noticed some bluring of the image here and there as if the camera had trouble focusing at times.
I cannot remember if the dvd was like this which probably it was, but BR will show up any differences like this.Very minimal anyway.
Great movie, great acting. These 90's action adventure films really were good. Five stars for the movie, but four stars here as I really think some
die hard fans of these type of films could do a better transfer if given the know how.I would love these films to be given the Lawrence Of Arabia treatment then this would have been reference viewing.Anyhow have no qualms about buying the BR of this title this will be the best you will ever see this movie.

4.0 out of 5 stars Jimmy boy....(spoilers) 31 Jan 2014
Format:Blu-ray
His days as an intelligence agent behind him, former CIA analyst Jack Ryan has travelled to London to vacation with his wife and child.

Meeting his family outside Buckingham Palace, Ryan is caught in the middle of a terrorist attack on Lord Holmes, a member of the Royal Family.

Ryan helps to thwart Holmes' assailants and becomes a local hero. But Ryan's courageous act marks him as a target in the sights of the terrorist whose brother he killed.

Now Ryan must return to action for the most vital assignment of his life: to save his family......

Oh yes, the film has flaws, the depiction of the Irish is as bad as 'Blown Away', everyone drinks Guiness, listens to Clannad and send Leprechauns as gifts, but this is Hollywood, so it can be forgiven.

As for the rest of the movie, it's one of the most taut and intense thrillers of 1992, and furthermore, it's one of Fords last movies where his name guaranteed a hit (fugitive, CAPD, AFO after this), and it still proves he was a major draw.

Why? Because Ryan is the Everyman, he's not superhuman, or an action hero, he's just a family man trying to protect his family.

Bean is great as the villain, and this film bases it's main plot on family. Bean And Ford meet when Ford is trying to protect his, Ford kills his Brother, Bean goes after Fords, coming around in full circle.

It's really well made, with some great support from a who's who of Hollywood. It's not as action packed as one would think, but it keeps you on the edge of your seat.

And it has one of the best endings a film has.

5.0 out of 5 stars The picture issues have been fixed. 24 Aug 2013
Format:Blu-ray
Have to say that due to some of the reviews below I was expecting the worst when I bought this.

From the opening Paramount Logo on the main film which has been stated to have a weird 'hatching' effect, I saw nothing amiss. Nor did this appear in any other part of the film. The hatching has also been described to appear by US viewers when viewing the US version.

I can only imagine that Paramount has quietly fixed this since the first review and me getting my copy.

The transfer was better than I could have hoped for for a 21 year old film shot non digitally. It's got lovely picture quality...due to the age and film stock used this is the best it's going to get for now. It won't look as pristine as a new film.

I am both relieved and delighted with my copy which is without weird glitches and looks marvelous.
