Wow! Patriot Games is one helluva an action movie! Harrison Ford burns with intensity playing Jack Ryan as an everyman with a deadly right hook and a staunch moral compass...that is *still* the best incarnation of Ryan onscreen. His bar threat to Richard Harris' snaky IRA representative shows an intensity and coldness that Ford rarely shows.

Sean Bean is fiery and unpredictable as vengeance-bent Sean Miller, out for revenge on Jack Ryan with a submachine gun, chiselled cheekbones, and an Ulster accent. Sean Bean is *this* close to being typecast as a villain, he manages to be sympathetic AND menacing - in one of his best roles.
Patrick Bergin is one icy cool customer as he steals the scenes as calculating, psychotic terrorist Kevin O'Donnell. Bergin gives an electrifying performance: violent, menacing, and played with a devilishly cold glint in the eyes.

I was almost ashamed to say that I was proud to be an Irishman as I watched this movie!

The rest of the cast, especially Samuel L. Jackson and Richard Harris, play their roles with aplomb. Technically, the film gets top marks. The score by James Horner is up to the maestro's usual top standards. The editing is excellent and the cinematography is quite often stunning.
Phillip Noyce directs with style and a relevancy that was ahead of it's time. Patriot Games is often surprisingly effective, even if some of the outdated tech is often painful to watch.

I think both of these are excellent movies and Harrison Ford just really sells his character so perfectly. But no question, "Clear and Present Danger" is the superior film. It's a thrilling, twist-filled adventure that is among the best films of its genre. The scene of Ford facing off with the President of the United States is worth the price of the dvd. "Patriot Games" is also a good movie, interesting and fairly exciting, but it didn't have the impact on me that C&PD had. I bought this set because I wanted C&PD, but it was cheaper to get the set than to buy that film on its own. Go figure. Now I always look for multiple-movie sets if I'm buying a dvd.

And by the way, I belong to Prime, so I can get quite a few good movies for free and recently I've been buying more blu ray discs than dvds, but I think now is a good time to collect inexpensive dvds (eventually they're going to go the way of VHS tapes). While Prime does have a good selection of "free" movies, there are still huge gaps and lots of films you have to rent. If I'm going to pay to rent a movie, I'd rather just buy a used (or cheap new) dvd and have it on a shelf. Just a thought.

I am a big fan of the author and I'm always interested to see how the vision of a director measures up against the author's intended story. These are both quite exciting and will keep the attention of the viewer from start to finish. Definitely worth having as part of any movie collection.

Its hard to believe that so much time has passed since these movies released. Tom Clancy was at his peak with these and Harrison Ford was the perfect Jack Ryan; he wasn't the suave James Bond but more of the everyman who did what had to be done. These movies, while dated, hold up pretty well in terms of plot. Sure, they aren't as crisp as the latest blu-rays nor are they as action packed as the Bourne trilogy but what they are is great looks into the kind of plausible conspiracies and plots that keep you entertained every moment. Great for a double feature.

CLEARLY DOUBLE THE ACTION AND DOUBLE THE ENTERTAINMENT. HOW CAN YOU NOT OWN THESE TWO MOVIES AND OWN "HUNTER FOR RED OCTOBER?" HARRISON FORD IS TOP DRAWER IN THESE. BUT YOU CAN'T OWN THESE WITHOUT PURCHASING "SUM OF ALL FEARS?" WE ARE ANXIOUSLY AWAITING TOM CLANCEY'S NEXT WHITE-KNUCKLE-NAIL-BITER.

It's Tom Clancy. It's Harrison Ford. What could be wrong? I only wish Harrison Ford was Jack Ryan in all the movies based on Tom Clancy's book and that all Tom Clancy's books had been made into movies.

A great value here. Two Harrison Ford action movies in a combo-pack. Unlike others, each movie is on a separate disk and
both come in separate cases. Harrison Ford takes over the Alec Baldwin character from "The Hunt For Red October" in two
follow-up stories by Tom Clancy. Among the very talented cast are James Earl Jones, Willem Dafoe, Sean Bean, Anne Archer
and many other recognizable faces. Very Highly recommend.

It is interesting how Harrison Ford replaced Alec Baldwin as Jack Ryan in PATRIOT GAMES and that made PATRIOT GAMES' focus around Jack Ryan as the main character much stronger. That transaction seemed flawless and a natural one. Ford's interpretation is that of a thinking man and a man of action and one of integrity in both PATRIOT GAMES and A CLEAR AND PRESENT DANGER. Anne Archer as Cathy Ryan in both films also strengthens the dynamics that she and her husband have a the screen. Harrison Ford's Jack Ryan is a family man and that strengthens his image of dedication to both family and country. I like both PATRIOT GAMES and A CLEAR AND PRESENT DANGER very much. There are very good scenes in both films. I always liked the scene in PATRIOT GAMES where Ryan stops the IRA assassination outside of Buckingham Palace. PATRIOT GAMES filmed in some really great locations. PATRIOT GAMES is one of Phillip Noyce's best directorial efforts. I thought Joaquim de Almeida as Colonel Felix Cortez in A CLEAR AND PRESENT DANGER almost stole the film with his performance, He has a very strong screen presence. There were also some very tense moments in A CLEAR AND PRESENT DANGER. The one actor in all three films who always steels the scenes he is in was James Earl Jones as Admiral James Greer. It really is great have all three films in one. I also like James Horner,s score for both films. His scored is really tied to the human side of the narratives and not the action.
