Let's see--he has been Han Solo in three films and Indiana Jones in three more. So why shouldn't Harrison Ford take on a new continuing character in Tom Clancy's CIA analyst Jack Ryan? In this film, directed by Phillip Noyce, Ford picked up the baton when Alec Baldwin, who played Ryan in The Hunt for Red October, opted for a Broadway role instead. In this film, Ryan and his family are on vacation when Ryan saves a member of the British royal family from attack by Irish terrorists. The next thing he knows, the Ryan clan has been targeted by the same terrorists, who... invade his Maryland home. The film can't shed all of Clancy's lumbering prose, or his techno-dweeb fascination with spy satellites and the like. But no one is better than Ford at righteous heroism--and Sean Bean makes a suitably snakey villain. --Marshall Fine [show more]

Harrison Ford plays CIA Jack Ryan for the first time in this adaptation of Tom Clancy's thriller, a follow-up to 'The Hunt for Red October'. This time around, Ryan prevents the assassination of a British Earl, killing one of the terrorist assassins in the process. The terrorist's brother Sean Miller (Sean Bean) vows revenge on Ryan and his family. This results in a great deal of shooting and chasing.
