One of my favourite Tom Clancy films. Wish the Chris Pine one was more like this (even though it is also quite well done).

Join Jack Ryan as he not only fights for his country but also to save his family from a bloodthirsty terrorist that is on revenge mission against his family. Great performers in this one from Ford to James Earl Jones to a young Thora Birch. Great soundtrack too from Clannad.

My favourite Clancy novel sees some significant changes in its adaptation to a movie, with new actors in the leads. Harrison Ford and Anne Archer make for a believable married couple as the Ryans, facing a threat after Jack Ryan intervenes in an Irish terrorist attack while on holiday in London. When the revenge of the terrorists follows them home, Ryan returns to his old stomping grounds in the CIA. Patrick Bergin is well cast as a ruthless breakaway terrorist cell leader, and Sean Bean plays the obsessed terrorist determined to even the score with Ryan no matter what the cost.
