Harrison Ford is Jack Ryan straight from the pages of the books by Tom Clancy, this is a follow up to Patriot Games. It sees Jack Ryan involved in looking at the drugs coming from Columbia and as he has to take on a more senior role within the CIA he becomes involved with the president. Including the fact that he starts to realise he can influence policy within the government. I have not read any of the Jack Ryan books and not considered the films as a proper series, especially as you have 3 actors having now played Jack Ryan and all of the films have been produced out of order.
With Willem Dafoe as an operative in
with Benjamin Bratt and Raymond Cruz. With Henry Czerny and Harris Yulin playing a different game that
Jack has to go in and sort it out. The politicians allow and sign off on a war
on the drug cartels and then when the heat comes up they leave the soldiers
hanging and Jack runs off to save them. It is all very action packed and
exciting and there are quite a few plots running through the film and you have
to pay attention so you know what everybody is up to. Columbia
This is a fun packed film with lots of good acting and plenty of explosions for the boys; I think there is too much going on and this probably has a lot to do with the size of The Tom Clancy books and the difficulty in trying to condense them in to a two hour film. Overall an enjoyable film and should been seen as a 7 out of 10.
