Product Description

Patriot Games

From Amazon.co.uk

Let's see--he has 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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

`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.

Format: DVD
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.).

Format: DVD
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.

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.

After saving the life of a member of the british royal family in london while on a speaking engagement with his family former-CIA analyst Jack Ryan must contend with revenge attempts by an angry murdering scumbag played excellently by Sean Bean. This is an excellent thriller with some excellent action pieces.

Format: DVD
This adaptation ot Clancy's novel of the same name is outstanding- Harrison Ford as Jack Ryan is once again excellent in this thriller.

The story centres on Ryan, who having left the CIA behind years previously to focus on his family, gives a lecture in London during a holiday with his wife and daughter. In a chance encounter in Mayfair, Ryan defends an attack on a member of the Royal Family by a brutally ruthless IRA-ofshoot faction, killing one of two brothers involved, and thus incurring the wrath of the elder brother, Sean Miller (Sean Bean), the leader of the attack, who will stop at nothing to get revenge. Having recuperated and testified against Miller, Ryan returns home with his family, only to find that Miller has escaped from prison and is coming after him. This turn of envents puts an initially reluctant Ryan back in the CIA, as he endeavours to protect the lives of himself and his family. Tense and gripping scenarios ensue, including a lights-out, nail-biting finale at Ryan's remote home, and some excellent action sequences.

The acting is great- Sean Bean's Ulster accent is spot-on and the supporting cast, including Polly Maberly, is very good too. The script is intelligent and entertaining, and the soundtrack is pretty good too. Of all the Clancy films, this is my favourite.
