Storyline

Jack Ryan is back and this time the bad guys are in his own government. When Admiral James Greer becomes sick with cancer, Ryan is appointed acting CIA Deputy Director of Intelligence. Almost before he can draw a breath in his new position, one of the president's closest friends and his family are murdered in their sleep by what appears to by drug cartels. Ryan is called in to investigate, but unknown to him the CIA has already sent a secret field operative to lead an illegal paramilitary force in Colombia against cartels. Things get even more complicated when his team is set up and he loses an agent in the field and a friend of his wife's, who was the murdered agent's secretary, is murdered that same day. Ryan must then risk not only his career, but his life to expose the truth behind the mystery. Written by SindyMac

Trivia

Several scenes were filmed in nearby cities of Mexico City: Cuernavaca and Tepoztlan. The scenes in Cuernavaca represent Colombia, when they are drinking coffee and the persecution following that scene. Also, Tepoztlan's Hotel Tepoztlan is where the drug lord lives. See more »

Goofs

When Ryan buried the dead soldier near the river, Chavez told Ryan and Clark that "They were taking Captain Oso". Oso or Julio Vega was a sergeant. Ramirez was the captain and the credit title agrees with this. In the closed captioning on the DVD, Chavez actually says "They were taking the Captain and Oso" not Captain Oso. See more »

Harrison Ford on form in an excellent movie
27 February 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I have read some quite negative reviews of this film, with many being upset by the lack of coherence with the book despite taking it's characterisations etc...I agree that the film does not follow the book particularly well but it is a film, for film watchers, not a book or a film for book readers so stop criticising it on that level. This film is entertaining from start to finish with a surprisingly clever plot considering the genre and credit must go to Ford for starring and excelling in yet another blockbuster. People may say he's not the most versatile actor in the world and I'm not going to disagree, but he does what he does brilliantly and those who don't enjoy this movie really do need a good talking to. Along with Patriot Games, this is part of an impressive set of movies which are far more entertaining than the books (perhaps thats because I'm not an avid reader) and shall keep all you viewers out there happy, if only for a short while.
