Patriot Games, 2003 Special Collector's Edition - Harrison Ford provides us with the definitive Jack Ryan.
on 8 April 2010
`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.
