It flounders from one absurdity to another, with results that are hilarious when they aren't insulting. There is as much political realism in the film as there is in Naked Gun 2 1/2, except that in Patriot Games it matters.

It's Ford and Patriot Games that made Jack Ryan a top-notch action hero and not just a capable CIA nerd.

Although it simplifies global conflict to make a swift impression, the intrigue maintains a pop and the inner fires still burn bright. Baldwin is missed, yet Ford finds his place in the franchise quickly and efficiently.

Ford gives one of his most commanding performances outside of a Lucas production, establishing an action formula Ford would repeat...[Blu-Ray]

The film's dominant motif is that of revenge. In a key scene, the wife tells her husband (Harrison Ford): You get him. I don't care what you have to do, just get him." From that point on, the film becomes the story of a nuclear family in imminent danger.

It ain't exactly saving the world, but Patriot Games's earnestness belies its ultimate simplicity and smallness.

It moves along at a speedy clip, though it substitutes sadism for such niceties as wit and style.
May 12, 2001
The movie kills most of the fun by watering down Clancy.

I expected this one to be a little more cerebral and without the Indiana Jones ending.

The film holds too few surprises to sustain our interest. All too often, we're ahead of the game.

Director Phillip Noyce, who made the gripping thriller Dead Calm, has earned his directorial hack license here.

An enjoyable, tense and sometimes stylish action film, but lacks the depth of characterization and technical proficiency that made Hunt a superior work.
