Rating:
R

Patriot Games is a 1998 film adaptation of Tom Clancy's novel of the same name. The film stars Harrison Ford as Jack Ryan, a CIA Analyst known for his uncanny ability to track down the world's greatest terrorists. This time Jack is brought in to track down IRA terrorists Kevin O'Donnell (Patrick Bergin) and Sean Miller (Sean Bean), two men hell-bent on assassinating a government official. But when Jack starts to dig too deep into the political assassination plans his wife (Ann Archer) and daughter (Thora Birch) become secondary targets. After a near fatal attempt on their lives, Jack is now fighting for much more than country, now he must track down these ruthless and relentless criminals to save the very lives of his own family. This action/drama cleverly keeps you constantly on the edge of your seat never knowing what lies around the next corner. The film, directed by Phillip Noyce (The Bone Collector, Salt), is an adrenaline packed thrill ride that's sure to please.
