The film is too fancy and not sufficiently harsh.

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

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.
