  • Summary: The first Jack Ryan film is a more thoughtful and political film than the more action-oriented, Harrison Ford-starring films to follow. The cat-and-mouse game between Connery and Baldwin comprises a large portion of the film and is the best part of the well-directed, tension-filled movie.

  • Summary: A better-than-average thriller thanks to Sean Connery and Alec Baldwin (perhaps his best role to date?). The movie is tense and never lets up. Though Harrison Ford would take over, this first Jack Ryan adventure is pretty good.

  • Excerpt: This used to be a Top 10 hit for me but it has lost a little of its luster.........still a fantastic movie though. In the first installment of the Jack Ryan series it is filled with excitement and has a stellar cast.

  • Excerpt: Great movie and do I wish it got a better transfer, of course. Bottom line, on my system it looked much better than the DVD so it was well worth it for me to purchase it on Blu. If you are a fan of this pic it is worth owning.

  • Excerpt: This is a great movie. This is the best of the Jack Ryan flicks. In terms of quality, it was a little better than the DVD. I picked it up at Best Buy today, on sale, for $12.99. I would not have gotten it at it's regular price of $24.99. The picture quality was an upgrade, but not mind-blowing.
