Despite numerous negative reviews of this Film, I decided to give it a chance anyway. Harrison Ford almost always shines.
In "Hanover Street" Ford's delivery seemed a little dry at times, but not that often. His future as Indiana Jones, and other "emotional yet tough" characters peaks through on several occasions.
There is a good balance of action and romance here, decent character development. The pacing is a little slower than modern films, but comparing an older film to modern drivel doesn't do much good. Sitting through this film should be a cake walk for people with an attention span.
So over all, a good film!
Warning to Parents: There is a very short amount of frontal nudity in this PG film.
