4.0 out of 5 stars Clear And Present Danger, 2003 Special Collector's Edition - Clear and present entertainment!
In the third of the Jack Ryan films, Harrison Ford reprises the role of Ryan, portraying the many facets of the character with consummate ease. He's moved onwards and upwards since the events of `Patriot Games', now a high ranking member of the CIA, giving briefings to the President.

The murder of a friend of the President leads to a link with a Columbian...

3.0 out of 5 stars Slightly Disappointing
I had high expectations of this film after reading other reviews and of course the the Tom Clancy novel of the same title. Unfortunately the film failed miserably to live up to the excellent book.
It's not a poor film, simply that I think It would have been better to watch the film first then read the book.
The casting generally is pretty good. Ford, as expected...

Uno compra peliculas que por lo general ha visto antes y que le traen recuerdos por cualquier motivo y esta no es la excepcion. Verlas con la tecnologia actual y tranquilo en la casa es un disfrute, grande Harrison.

5.0 out of 5 stars great film of a brilliant book, 18 Sep 2000
By A Customer
this is the best film of a Tom Clancy book. It is a great film of one of the best books. Jack Ryan has got to be the best character Harrison Ford has played since Han Solo. I cant wait for the rainbow six film!

5.0 out of 5 stars If you believe a politician you are a sucker, 23 Oct 2010
By 
This review is from: Clear And Present Danger Sp Edition [DVD] [1994] (DVD)
At first it looks like a banal drug film with some CIA agents trying to find out who killed a couple of people and why, people who were personal friends of the President of the US. Just that makes things tricky, I mean the fact that the victims were friends of the President of the US. Be discreet Jack. But things are also trickier than they look and I don't want to tell you the film. I am just going to give a few ideas about politics first. A politician always lies, by definition and by principle. It sounds pessimistic and it is. Never believe a politician, no matter what side he is on and what side you are on. A politician will always do what the circumstances will make him do under pressure. If he is wise he will listen to his advisers and he will think then. If he is not wise he will run into the wall and push with his head. He may break through, but anyway afterwards he will tell you tall tales. The second element is that you have to serve politicians, no matter what and just try to cover your back and by back I mean under your lower back. You can serve them well it does not matter. If there is a problem you will be the fuse. If the problem was big, you may be the fuse, but the politicians will get it on their heads. But that will not give you what you deserve: a medal and a premium for serving them well. The film brings up another line of reflection. Politicians do not give a damn about the life of the people who are defending the country or who are fighting just or unjust wars for their country. Politicians consider these fighters as pawns on their chessboard and if they die they are collateral victims of their own game. Too bad for them they were those who had to die. If they died with honor they might get some coverage and recognition, otherwise they might get buried under a pile of rocks in some jungle. Their families will be handed a casket full of stones. But beyond these fighters in uniform do not believe civilians are in any way considered in this matter. Civilians are not even collateral damage. They are just collateral garbage. And unluckily that's the fundamental point here. Who cares about children, women, and plain civilians. They should not have been here in the first place. Good riddance, next time they will not be dumb enough to be present on a future mass crime scene. That's how you get out of that film. And the last scene will not change anything. There is no justice in such a situation. You may see the politician who exploited you fall because his arrogance brings him down, but that will not be justice for you who will have footed the bill of that liar. So make up your mind and just accept to be used, over-used and abused by politicians: that's their fundamental function and you are a sucker by definition since you are not in politics.

4.0 out of 5 stars Glued To Your Seat, 27 July 2010
This review is from: Clear And Present Danger Sp Edition [DVD] [1994] (DVD)
This film is one of those that doesn't age at the time of my review its 16 years old but I had no hesitation buying from Amazon whilst browsing. Harrison Ford never seems to get older and puts in a cracking perfomance. William DaFoe is his usuall dependable brillance. With twists and turns round every corner with superb action scenes coupled with the fact its over two hours long. Make sure you've got the wine, popcorn, crisps etc as you won't want to leave your seat. Top FIlmClear And Present Danger Sp Edition [DVD] [1994]

5.0 out of 5 stars Better of the 2, 10 Sep 2000
Ahh, now this is the better film and novel when compared to Patriot Games. I saw this one first, i love it....this film isnt as personel to jack ryan because his family are not in direct danger, but his honor is in danger and he could not live with himself if he did nothing about the events in the film.
This film has plenty of action for the thrill seakers but remember its heavily polital as well.
Choice between Patriot Games and this, id choose Clear and Present Danger every time without hesiation.
Buy it just to see what its like, trust me you wont regret it.
Go on, you know you want to.

3.0 out of 5 stars Slightly Disappointing, 27 Jun 2002

It's not a poor film, simply that I think It would have been better to watch the film first then read the book.
The casting generally is pretty good. Ford, as expected makes the best of a very weak character. The only major grumble is Willem Dafoe playing CIA legend John Clark. He just doesn't look right at all but to his credit he pulls it off quite well.
Some of the action scenes are very fast paced and keep you riveted to the screen but the whole storyline has been watered down so much from the book in order to make the film fit inside two hours that it simply doesn't cut the mustard.
Basically the film in it's own right is pretty good but don't expect anything near as good as the book.
