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

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

The movie kills most of the fun by watering down Clancy.

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

It moves along at a speedy clip, though it substitutes sadism for such niceties as wit and style.

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.

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

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

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