The uneven flow is as likely to lead to a snoozing viewer as to one on the edge of their seat.

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.

There's a glimmer of interest in the film's ideological contortions, but as a commercial action thriller this is inflated and sluggish.

Ford's second and final appearance as Jack Ryan is a sprawling thriller.

Narrative complexity and momentum make this a true cinematic equivalent of an absorbing page-turner.

This is the best spy film to be released in several years.

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.

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.

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

For what it is, Clear and Present Danger is fun to sit through.

The film seems to have its pulse on some peculiarly modern varieties of madness.
