In CLEAR AND PRESENT DANGER Jack Ryan (Harrison Ford) is promoted from analyst to deputy director of intelligence for the CIA and finds himself thrust into one of America’s most dangerous conflicts: the war on drugs. Ryan soon draws a connection between the murder of the President’s friend and a powerful Colombian drug cartel. This provides the Oval Office with striking evidence that their war on drugs is ineffective. Wanting to ensure a second term in office, the President calls for decisive action against the cartel. When Ryan uncovers illegal actions, he must decide if he will risk his career and reputation to expose the corruption.
This movie is the third Tom Clancy best-seller to be adapted into a screenplay featuring protagonist Jack Ryan, who presents many wholesome qualities. He refuses to sit still and allow the President to put innocent people in danger to further his own agenda. Ryan strives to find the truth, stands up for what is right and opposes what is wrong. Regrettably, the movie is marred by numerous obscenities and profanities, but in the end decency, honesty and integrity triumph over evil. With action, adventure, suspense, drama, comedy, and a moral message, CLEAR AND PRESENT DANGER has it all.
