5.0 out of 5 stars Revenge is a dangerous motive...... July 2, 2003
(I wrote this for the original, out of stock version)
Clear and Present Danger (1994 film)
The third film in the Jack Ryan series (and the last one to star Harrison Ford) deals with America's war on drugs and also the abuse of power in high places. As in Clancy's original novel, the plot hinges on one crucial question: how far can a President go to achieve a laudable goal, even if the means cross moral, legal and international boundaries?
As in the novel of the same name, the interception of an American-flagged yacht in the Caribbean results in the arrest of two Colombian "sicarios" (hit men) who have murdered the American owner (along with his entire family). The resulting FBI-CIA investigation reveals that Peter Hardin, the late yacht owner and personal friend of the U.S. President (Donald Moffat), had extensive ties to the Cali drug cartel. Hardin, as Jack Ryan (Ford) explains, had been skimming millions from his "partners," thus sealing his fate.
Although Ryan is aware that the President is understandably upset that his late friend was a money launderer for the drug lords, he is not aware that the National Security Advisor, Admiral James Cutter (Harris Yulin) and his CIA colleague Bob Ritter (Henry Czerny) have been given off-the-record orders to do "something about the drugs pouring into the country." When the President declares to Cutter that the drug cartels pose a "clear and present danger" to the United States, the somewhat slimy admiral and Ritter unleash several covert operations within the sovereign nation of Colombia.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best special effects movies on DVD August 2, 1999
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Not only is this a very well-directed and action-packed movie, it also has one of the best surround sound-encoded tracks available on DVD releases. If you have a dolby digital 5.1 surround system, this movie will really overwhelm you. The explosions will shake the ground....a true theater experience without going to the theater.

5.0 out of 5 stars Clear and Present Danger on Blu Ray March 23, 2013
I do have the Standard Def version but this will not be a comparison between the two; just a review of the transfer to Blu Ray without a summary of the plot or opinions on the acting, book, or whatever.

I gave this movie 5 stars because the transfer was so well done. The video displays a true life coloration with great detailing in the shadows as well as the lighter areas. There was a warm color grading but it was not overly rich as one often sees, especially when the action takes place in hot climates. Compression Mbps rates appeared to be mostly in the low 30's which contributes to a clearly improved video image. At no time did I see any artifacting or ghosting and the film played without a hiccup. For a film made in 1994, you will see a fine filmic grain but it only slightly softens the image without taking away from it. The storyline certainly holds up and the film retains its legs.

The audio is Dolby Digital True HD lossless audio and the sonic editors also did a fine job with realistic panning across both the front and rear sound stages and between the two stages. There was a goodly amount of discreet steering of foley effects to the various channels when appropriate and your LFE channel will get a workout in many places. For me, lossless audio makes a huge and audible difference as opposed to lossy audio.

Not found on the Standard Def DVD was a 30 minute doc with interviews with much of the excellent cast and director that I found quite interesting. They also talked and showed off the animated storyboard that was very uncommon back then.
To be honest, I did not expect either the audio or video to be as good as it was and strongly recommend the film and its upgrade to blu ray.

Hopefully, this review has been of some help to you in determining your purchase, and that I am on the correct path with a review of the transfer quality as opposed to providing plot summaries.

5.0 out of 5 stars A smart action thriller October 30, 2000
This movie is based on a Tom Clancy novel and it is simply awesome. The plot and subplots are well thought through and the execution as a motion picture is extremely well done. The story is about drug lords in Colombia who are connected to the folks behind secret doors in Washington. By direct order of the President, CIA agent Jack Ryan (Harrison Ford) has to solve the murders of a wealthy businessman and his family. The hunt takes Ryan back and forth between Washington and South America. More killings happen and the action becomes intense. Finally, there's a dangerous field operative (Willem Dafoe) who conducts covert operations for the U.S. government. The movie contains excellent cinematography, drama and action. We've watched it many times and it's always a delight as it is one of these rare breathtaking quality thrillers one will want to watch over and over again.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Tasty Brew July 25, 2003
This is one of two films based on Clancy's novels which really work, the other being The Hunt for Red October. It is certainly far superior to Patriot Games in terms of plausibility and cohesion of narrative, quality of acting, exploration of central issues, and ultimate resolution of various conflicts. I do think the escape by helicopter from one drug lord's compound was overdone but the film concludes appropriately with Ryan's final conversation with President Bennett (Donald Moffatt) and then his arrival at the subcommittee hearing chaired by Senator Mayo (Hope Lange). I still would have preferred that Alec Baldwin continue as Jack Ryan but concede that Harrison Ford is far more credible in this film than he was in Patriot Games, perhaps because he and his colleagues were working with a much better screenplay, one on which John Milius collaborated with Donald E. Stewart and Steve Zaillian. (It should be noted that Stewart and Zaillian also collaborated on the screenplay and must share at least some of the blame for Patriot Games' inadequacies. Both films were also directed by Phillip Noyce, another accomplice.) Having the President of the United States actively involved in Danger's narrative gives it a unique substance, to be sure, but also affords valuable opportunities to explore moral corruption and political expediency at the highest levels of government.
There are several outstanding performances, including Moffatt's in a difficult role as is Henry Czerny's as Robert Ritter, deputy director of the C.I.A. and Ryan's principal adversary; also Willem Dafoe as Clark and Harris Yulin as Cutter.
