4.0 out of 5 stars An Excellent boxed set for 4 Excellent movies, 10 July 2003
This review is from: Tom Clancy DVD Box Set (Special Edition) (DVD)
Movies-
The Hunt for Red October- A brand new hi-Tec Russian sub under the command of Captain Marko Ramius, at the height of the cold war is found to be heading towards the U.S Coast. The Russian and American government believes he is going to attack, only C.I.A analyst Jack Ryan (Alec Baldwin) believes the truth: he is going to defect... I believe that this is the best and most well made of the four Jack Ryan films. Baldwin far surpasses Ford as Jack Ryan, who in the words of a wise friend is typecast waaaay too much. A must see along with the three other movies. -5 out of 5 stars
-Patriot Games- Jack Ryan and his family are just beginning their vacation in London, when a group of terrorists cease a member of the Royal family, almost kill him in cold blood, but Jack is able to same the Lord, and even takes out one of the terrorists. For his courageous act the kill terrorist's brother will stop at nothing to kill him and his family.
Patriot Games is not the masterpiece The Hunt for Red October happens to be but with it interesting plot and exciting climax, it come pretty close. As I said in the first review, Ford is a bit over typecast but it barley takes away from the movie. Another exciting must-see. - 4 and a half out of five.
Clear and Present Danger- Jack Ryan has been put unwillingly into the position of head of the CIA, when the Presidents closest friend is murdered. Ties to the drug lords in Colombia are discovered and a military force is sent to Colombia to fight a secret war against them, this was unknown to Jack and soon he finds himself in the cross fire between corrupt Political leaders and gorilla war forces. This is the worst of the Jack Ryan movies I must admit. Although it was a tricky plot and great acting, it just was not as good. The action was toned down and the space between the important parts was too much. Although with it flaws it is still an excellent movie.
-4 out of 5
The Sum of All fears- A young Jack Ryan is just beginning his job as a CIA analyst, at the same time the Russian President is succeeded by a man with an unknown past. Soon the CIA starts to think that the Russian are building more nuclear bombs, but the truth is much more complicated than that: Neo-Nazi terrorists are planning to explode an atomic bomb at the Super bowl. The Newest of the Jack Ryan films still holds up against the classics, even with Ben Affleck replacing Ford as Jack Ryan. The suspense just keeps on building until it explodes...literally...- 4 and a half out of 5
