`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.

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.

A film Ive watched several times. This time I picked up soo much more. the film has made me think into a few things. revenge. And going on a personal mission. The price is too high with too many lives lost. Betrayal. From those you least expect too!! When I say betrayal. I mean selling out your own. Knowingly!! And by your own free will. (I.e. Without the use of any additional measures be it drugs chemicals torture brain washing etc etc!!!). without regard for the consequences. to line your own Pocket!!! (I do not mean paid undercover covert (I don't know correct name). to actually prevent lives being lost of course)But one of the strongest messages to me was respect amongst enemies.
It actually reminded me of the film Troy in a way

This film is based on the novel by Tom Clancy of the same name. It is truly an outstanding film, full of intense action and edge of seat thrill. The price of heroism come dearly to jack ryan, almost costing him the lives of his family, but i wont tell you anymore about the film, that would spoil it. Needless to say the film is brilliently made and keeps to the general plot of the novel which is good.
Buy it just to see it.
Go on you know you want to.

Well same thinsg with every Calncy film made so far, when they stray away from the book, they cause themselves problems.

Big problem wiht this film is that because they filmed HFRO first and chronologically PG is the first Ryan story, they decided to make it seem like HFRO happened before i.e. Jack left theCIA and is encouraged back by Greer rather than recruited for first time like it happens in the book, and due to ths Harrison Ford was a crazy choice for Ryan if you were starting with this story.

Dont get me wrong, if they had started filming these in the mid 80's (not possible I know) then Ford would be great an he is the best Ryan I have seen on film without a doubt and Baldwin just in 2nd , lets ignore the Fleck's wooden performance on SOAF shall we.

Its just that Ryan in PG is supposed to be a relatively young man, starting out on his career in CIA i.e the subject matter here pushes him towards the agency initially.

They should start again with PG as the first of a series in chronological order, set in the correct time period with a younger actor so they can take the series forward with a returning cast such as was done with Harry Potter. Imagine the same actors continually growing older and playing Ryan and his Family, Murray, Ritter, Moore, Greer, Shaw, Robbi Jackson, Clark etc, thts what would do these books justice.

However Paramount simply tried a reeboot with a young Ryan in SOAF, a book set well into Ryans agency career when he is in fact the Deputy director of CIA, so the rehash in the movie was awful.

Lets hope for a proper reboot sometime

This film as a stand alone though is a fantastic movie if you are not that into the Ryan books and movies saga.

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.
