“Clear and Present Danger” is a 1994 American political thriller film directed by Phillip Noyce and starring Harrison Ford. Based on Tom Clancy’s novel of the same name, the movie is the third installment in the Jack Ryan film series. Set during the early 1990s, the film explores the world of espionage, government corruption, and the war on drugs.

In “Clear and Present Danger,” Harrison Ford delivers a solid performance as Jack Ryan, a CIA analyst who finds himself thrust into the middle of a dangerous political conspiracy. The film’s plot revolves around Ryan’s efforts to uncover the truth behind a covert military operation in Colombia that goes awry and threatens to destabilize relations between the United States and a powerful drug cartel.

One of the strengths of the film is its intricate and suspenseful plot. It effectively combines political intrigue with intense action sequences, keeping the audience engaged throughout. The movie presents a complex web of political maneuvering, as various characters have their own agendas and hidden motives. The story gradually unfolds, revealing layers of deception and corruption within the government.

The film’s direction by Phillip Noyce is skillful, maintaining a tense atmosphere and providing a good balance between the action sequences and the quieter, more character-driven moments. The cinematography captures the various settings, including the dense jungles of Colombia, with authenticity and visual flair.

The supporting cast is also noteworthy, with performances from Willem Dafoe as John Clark, James Earl Jones as Admiral James Greer, and Joaquim de Almeida as the ruthless cartel leader Ernesto Escobedo. These actors bring depth and credibility to their roles, adding richness to the overall narrative.

Furthermore, “Clear and Present Danger” tackles relevant political themes, such as government accountability and the ethics of covert operations. It raises thought-provoking questions about the balance between national security and personal liberties, making it more than just an action-packed thriller.

On the downside, some critics have argued that the film’s runtime of over two hours feels slightly long, and certain subplots could have been trimmed to maintain a tighter pace. Additionally, while Harrison Ford delivers a solid performance as Jack Ryan, his character’s development feels slightly overshadowed by the larger political machinations at play.

Overall, “Clear and Present Danger” is a gripping political thriller that effectively combines suspense, action, and political intrigue. With strong performances, a compelling plot, and relevant themes, the film remains an engaging watch for fans of the genre.
