Clear and Present Danger is a 1994 action film based on the popular book by political thriller mastermind Tom Clancy. Harrison Ford reprises his role as Jack Ryan from the preceding film, 1992's Patriot Games, and James Earl Jones returns as Vice Admiral James Greer. Greer, a close friend and colleague of Ryan's, learns he has pancreatic cancer and will have to take a leave of absence from his job as Deputy Director of Intelligence for the CIA. Before he leaves, he appoints Jack Ryan as Deputy Director in his absence. With the job, Ryan inherits the responsibility of overseeing an ongoing operation in Colombia, where the CIA is trying to dismantle the drug cartel. Ryan might be in charge, but he quickly learns he's being left in the dark about the operation as several agents carry out missions without his knowledge. Suddenly, Jack Ryan is in the middle of a deadly game with no clue as to what's going on. Clear and Present Danger is an exciting film about the dangers of CIA bureaucracy and the man who has to clean up the agency.
