Clear and Present Danger - More Misc Jack Ryan Adventures…
We enjoyed most of these John Clancey ‘Jack Ryan’ CIA movies (as long as they had Harrison Ford as the main character - Ben Affleck didn’t quite cut the mustard in 'The Sum of All Fears’). Of course, they all seemed quite similar to each other, and like James Bond movies, they tend to get mixed up in my mind.
This one had Jack Ryan getting mixed up with an illegal drug war down in Columbia, and also featured Willem Dafoe. The usual intrigue and action scenes are to be expected.
