4.0 out of 5 stars A great boxed set for great movies. July 9, 2003
Format:DVD
Movies-
The Hunt for Red October- A brand new hi-Tec Russian sub under the command of Captain Marko Ramius, at the height of the cold war is found to be heading towards the U.S Coast. The Russian and American government believes he is going to attack, only C.I.A analyst Jack Ryan (Alec Baldwin) believes the truth: he is going to defect... I believe that this is the best and most well made of the four Jack Ryan films. Baldwin far surpasses Ford as Jack Ryan, who in the words of a wise friend is typecast waaaay too much. A must see along with the three other movies. -5 out of 5 stars
-Patriot Games- Jack Ryan and his family are just beginning their vacation in London, when a group of terrorists cease a member of the Royal family, almost kill him in cold blood, but Jack is able to same the Lord, and even takes out one of the terrorists. For his courageous act the kill terrorist?s brother will stop at nothing to kill him and his family.
Patriot Games is not the masterpiece The Hunt for Red October happens to be but with it interesting plot and exciting climax, it come pretty close. As I said in the first review, Ford is a bit over typecast but it barley takes away from the movie. Another exciting must-see. - 4 and a half out of five.
Clear and Present Danger- Jack Ryan has been put unwillingly into the position of head of the CIA, when the Presidents closest friend is murdered. Ties to the drug lords in Colombia are discovered and a military force is sent to Colombia to fight a secret war against them, this was unknown to Jack and soon he finds himself in the cross fire between corrupt Political leaders and gorilla war forces. This is the worst of the Jack Ryan movies I must admit. Although it was a tricky plot and great acting, it just was not as good.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hoping for improved issues. April 12, 2003
Format:DVD
The originals of the first 3 movies were issued as letterbox, rather than anamorphic, widescreen, and Hunt For Red October had a very poor video transfer with lots of obvious graininess. But I liked these movies and am glad to see them reissued in DTS and anamorphic video versions. Hopefully the video transfers are improved. I find Ben Afflec far less convincing than Alec Baldwin and Harrison Ford playing Jack Ryan, but it's not a bad movie. Hunt stands out as the best with Sean Connery terrific as usual.

5.0 out of 5 stars As Good As A Godfather Marathon August 11, 2003
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
...Start with Alec Baldwin as a young Jack Ryan, and Sean Connery as a Russian commander in `Hunt For Red October' in one of the greatest submarine movies since Das Boot!
Then you have Harrison Ford as Jack Ryan in `Patriot Games' in a tense drama about the IRA and terrorism (such a beautiful performance by the late Richard Harris as the IRA contact). And then `A Clear and Present Danger' with Jack Ryan uncovering government conspiracies that reach to the Presidential Office.
`Sum of All Fears' has Ben Affleck as the `new' Jack Ryan difusing a war scenario between Russia and the USA after a nuke is exploded in Baltimore.
All these films are seat-grippers in their own right, but I have to say the Harrison Ford films are the best. Like the Connery 007 flicks, they are top notch in cinematography and screenplay writing. Ford is the only Jack Ryan I will remember with detail. Affleck was better in `Daredevil' and `Pearl Harbor' (I believe Pearl Harbor will be the highpoint in his career especially after the horrible `Gigli'...)
This is a guys' set of flicks. You've seen them all on TBS (owns everthing now including `Field Of Dreams'...), BUT, this is a set of movies you want to watch one after the other with a pizza and a surround system.

3.0 out of 5 stars High-Def Digest reports missing features October 16, 2007
By Solanio
Format:HD DVD
[...]

Just wanted to put out the word that High Definition Digest is reporting: "In what may end up being the biggest packaging blunder yet for a high-def title, Paramount's 'Jack Ryan Collection' HD DVD appears to have shipped to retail in a deluxe "Special Collectors Edition" box set that contains none of its advertised bonus features."

IF special features are important to your value of this product, you might want to wait a bit until there's some clarification or resolution about purported missing content.

4.0 out of 5 stars I Actually Have This Set on HD DVD March 26, 2008
Format:HD DVD
Most people here are writing how they want this or can't wait for it, I actually have it. Someone at Wal-Mart accidentally put these on their shelves recently and I picked one up for myself. I say accidentally because they were recalled months ago because they don't include the extras they claim to have on the box and they've never been re-issued. I also know this because the sales guy had a hard time ringing it up and had to manually input it. He then told me that he wasn't supposed to sell this to me as the computer told him not to, so good for me.

I have no issues with the missing extras because I rarely watch them anyway. The discs don't have any menus either. They just boot right up without previews or a menu.

What's important is the fact that they are all 1080p and offer Dolby Digital Plus and even better Dolby TrueHD audio. So let's get to it.

These films really need no explanation. The first 3 are classic political thrillers and the 4th is a so-so attempt at continuing their success. Tom Clancy's vision is, for the most part executed well on these films.

I had the first 3 already on standard dvd so I had a nice comparison. Each transfer looks better than the one before it. That's typical as newer films upgrade easier to high def. But all of them look better than their standard counterparts. I noticed some specks on each of them but not for any reason other than I was looking for it. But these films are a difficult upgrade as most of the scenes take place inside a house, office, or outside on overcast days. So they don't give you the 3D pop your probably looking for. But they are pretty sharp and are the best transfers we'll see for a very long time.
