Patriot Games is a slow-burn, which suits me just fine, but will distance other aficionados of the action/thriller genre. Stick with it, though, and you're in for a rollicking final twenty minutes. A respectable 90s espionage thriller.

A good action film featuring a peak Harrison Ford and the future Ned Stark. It's actually a fairly predictable action film, however it's still entertaining with some good performances and action pieces.

"The names Ryan. Jack Ryan!" In Patriot Games, Harrison Ford plays former CIA agent Jack Ryan, taking over from Alec Baldwin, who had played author Tom Clancy's brainy protagonist in Hunt for Red October. This time around, Ryan foils an attempted assassination, thereby incurring the wrath of a maniacal Irish radical (Sean Bean). After seemingly neutralizing the villains, and deciding to celebrate the occasion with his wife (Anne Archer) and daughter (Thora Birch), everything appears to be back to normal; then all hell breaks loose. Harrison Ford in this movie was freaking fantastic and Sean Bean played a great villain in this movie just like Hans Gruber in Die Hard.

Unfortunately, Jack Ryan did not Realize that Sean Miller would come after him and his family for revenge. Thus ensues a very tense and emotional battle of wills and physical strenth. Sean Miller, whose motives are not those of the IRA. Throughout the movie Sean …
