CIA analyst Jack Ryan must thwart the plans of a terrorist faction that threatens to induce a catastrophic conflict between the United States and Russia's newly elected president by detonating a nuclear weapon at a football game in Baltimore.
Former CIA analyst, Jack Ryan is in England with his family on vacation. He then goes to Buckingham Palace to meet them when there's an explosion. Some people are trying to abduct a member of the Royal Family but Jack stops them killing one of them and capturing the other. He learns that they're Irish revolutionaries and the two men are brothers. The one that's still alive vows to get Jack. Later while the man is being transported, he is broken out. Jack learns of this but doesn't think there's anything to worry about. But when he's at the Naval Academy someone tries to kill him but he stops him. He learns that they're also going after his family so he rushes to find them but they made an attempt but they survive. That's when Jack decides to rejoin the CIA. And they try to find the man before he makes another attempt. Written by
Early in the film, when Ryan gives a lecture at the Royal Naval Academy in London, he tells the audience, "In this volatile climate, we can only speculate on the future of Soviet Fleet development." In the foreground, a blueprint of the Soviet submarine "Red October" appears on a computer screen, establishing Ryan's link to The Hunt for Red October (1990). See more »
While it is true that the average British police officer does not carry a firearm, there is no way that a convicted high-profile IRA terrorist would be escorted without an armed guard. See more »

Harrison Ford kicks some major butt in this film and proves again that he is the leading action star of his generation. Ford's action movie's never really seem silly, they always seem real. Alec Baldwin should have never let the character of Jack Ryan go, because Ford now personifies the super agent. Nice direction from Phillip Noyce and a great score from James Horner make this a very good action film.
