Harrison Ford returns as intrepid CIA agent Jack Ryan in this critically acclaimed box-office smash from the producers of Patriot Games.

When his mentor Admiral James Greer (James Earl Jones) becomes gravely ill, Ryan is appointed acting CIA Deputy Director of Intelligence. His first assignment: investigate the murder of one of the President`s friends, a prominent US businessman with secret ties to Colombian drug cartels.

Unbeknownst to Ryan, the CIA has already dispatched a deadly field operative (Willem Dafoe) to lead a paramilitary force against the Colombian drug lords. Caught in the crossfire, Ryan takes matters into his own hands, risking his career and life for the only cause he still believes in - the truth.

i enjoyed the book of this movie and thought it would be a big gamble to turn it into a movie.this is easily the best of the jack ryan movies so far.the role fits ford like a glove.the story is excellent.for once america has its own bad guys even if they are as high as you can get.the action scenes are well staged picture and sound are great but paramount have contempt for dvd owners with stingy extra features.
