Ryan flies from LHR to IAD at night. When he arrives at Dulles, it's daylight. This is backwards. For most of the year, there is a 7 hour time difference. If Ryan left, as an example, at 2100 London time, that is 1400 in Virginia. Add 6 hours flight time, Ryan lands at 2000 (8pm). He wouldn't be whisked in daylight to a morning meeting at that time.

This movie never fails to entertain me. Smartly directed, well written, and acted it always brings a fresh newness no matter how many times I've seen it. It could have been the beginning of a franchise for Alec Baldwin. He is very much centered and controlled. Sean Connery is also standout.
Could recommend this to anyone without hesitation. On DVD it's a visual feast. Just a great looking movie. Wish that all the other Clancy books had been adapted so well.
