REGION 2 DVD (U.K Release)
The Hunt For Red October (Special Collector's Edition [DVD] 
Very Good Condition
This handsome box set collects together all three of the films
based on Tom Clancy's hugely popular Jack Ryan books. In the first
adaptation, The Hunt for Red October
, Alec Baldwin offers an interesting Ryan in this gripping submarine-set thriller directed by action auteur John McTiernan (Predator
, Die Hard
and Die Hard With a Vengeance
). Red October
also sports Sean Connery as the Russian nuclear submarine captain, his
Scottish accent only cursorily disguised as per usual, attempting to
defect to the West on his ship. Ryan must figure out his true motives
for approaching the US. It all makes for an exceptionally handsome movie
with action sequences that really take one's breath away.
The second Clancy adaptation, Patriot Games,
is the first to star Harrison Ford in the Ryan role. Recently voted the
sexiest man alive in a popular poll, Ford's strong, silent shaggy
presence brings more warmth to the CIA analyst part. Directed by Phillip
Noyce (Dead Calm), this film has Ryan and his family on vacation
when Ryan is called upon to save a member of the British royal family
from attack by Irish terrorists, giving a new twist on the phrase
"adventure holiday". Before you know it, the Ryan clan is being targeted
by the same terrorists, who invade his Maryland home. Sean Bean as head
baddie wreaks havoc on property and rivals Brad Pitt in the dodgy
"Oirish" accent stakes, but no one is better than Ford at square-jawed
He returns in Clear and Present Danger, the third instalment in the trilogy, also directed by Noyce, a more complex, rewarding, and bolder film than Patriot Games.
Here Ryan is embroiled in a failed White House bid to wipe out a
Colombian drug cartel and cover up the mess. The script, by Clancy and
John Milius (Red Dawn), has an air of true adventure about it as
Ryan places himself in harm's way to extract covert soldiers abandoned
in a Latin-American jungle. There are a couple of expertly handled set
pieces, especially a shocking scene involving an ambush on Ryan's car in
an alley. The supporting cast is superb, including Willem Dafoe as the
soldiers' leader, Henry Czerny as Ryan's enemy at the CIA, Joaquim de
Almeida as a smooth-talking villain, Ann Magnuson as an unwitting
confederate in international crime, and James Earl Jones as Ryan's dying
A deadly battle of wits ensues between the navies of the United
States and the U.S.S.R when the Soviet Union's most advanced nuclear
submarine makes an unauthorized approach to America's eastern seaboard.
Based on the novel by Tom Clancy.
