Having figured out how to make a Jack Ryan action thriller with Patriot Games, the same cluster of filmmakers got to do it again... managing to improve virtually across the board.
Full Review | Original Score: 8/10

Ford's second and final appearance as Jack Ryan is a sprawling thriller.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4
June 23, 2012
Well crafted if utterly conventional action thriller (third in Tom Clancy's series), whose best asset is Harrison Ford's star turn.
Full Review | Original Score: B-

None of it is uplifting or tells us something fresh, but it passes as easy viewing entertainment.

This is the third movie with Jack as its hero, so he is a known quantity -- a humanist spook with an overdeveloped moral sense -- but Ford, playing the part for the second time, knows how to keep his earnestness fresh.
January 13, 2010
It's a formula film with a typically dubious political message, but the storytelling is livelier and more engaging than previous adaptations of Clancy's turgid techno-thrillers.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4
August 8, 2008
Narrative complexity and momentum make this a true cinematic equivalent of an absorbing page-turner.
September 4, 2007
Passable entertainment

February 9, 2006
There's a glimmer of interest in the film's ideological contortions, but as a commercial action thriller this is inflated and sluggish.
June 3, 2005
Best of Ford's Jack Ryan movies: taut and tough.

Ainda que seja o exemplar mais irregular da série Jack Ryan, o filme se beneficia da vulnerabilidade (emocional, não física) com que Ford retrata o herói.
| Original Score: 3/5
July 14, 2003
A solid government thriller, but often hard to follow. Lots of talking, but a satisfying climax.
| Original Score: 3/5
May 20, 2003
In a film that opens with the sight of a waving American flag, subtlety may not be foremost on anyone's mind. But Mr. Ford's wary intelligence does wonders for a potentially one-dimensional character.

Danger is just an overblown attempt to latch onto already-waning "Just Say No" sentiment in the U.S. (it was released in 1994). No dice.
| Original Score: 2.5/5
March 11, 2003
There is enough intrigue to keep it interesting, and if it ever feels too slow, try counting the number of people who get betrayed. I lost count around betrayal number one billion.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
July 27, 2002
Ford fits wonderfully into the Jack Ryan character.
| Original Score: 3.5/5
January 1, 2000
The uneven flow is as likely to lead to a snoozing viewer as to one on the edge of their seat.

January 1, 2000
[Noyce] dramatizes Tom Clancy's obsessively detailed plot in a straightforward fashion while staging spectacular showpieces of action.
January 1, 2000
For what it is, Clear and Present Danger is fun to sit through.
