where in the world is Jack Ryan
31 July 2003 | by See all my reviews

Jack Ryan(Harrison Ford,Alec Baldwin,Ben Affleck)(Clear And Present Danger,The Hunt For Red October,Patriot Games,The Sum Of All Fears) saves the world from a nuclear holocaust, protects his family from irish terrorrists, rescues jailed special opts men in colombia.Fights for family, fights for freedom, fights to bring safely a defecting russian captain and this is just him in the movies not the Tom Clancy book series and he isn't even in the top 50 heroes. or where are the heroes such as President james marshall(Harrison Ford) or luke skywalker(Mark Hamill). Also where the villians like Capt. Siato from "Bridge On The River Kwai" Saruman & Sauron from LOTR ot what about AGENT SMITH(Hugo Weaving"The Matrix")I Give it a 6/10 because Hannibal and Indy where placed at 1# and 2#
