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 drugs cartel. A chain of events is set in motion to avenge the murder, and Ryan is caught in the middle, in the role of innocent patsy. He must uncover the truth and act to not only save his own career, but to save the lives of some patriots and to expose sickening corruption in the heart of Government.
With a strong central performance from Ford, and Willem Dafoe as the straight dealing Clarke, lots of big action set pieces and a well directed and tense search for the truth, this is an entertaining 2 hours and a highly recommended 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.
