Basically you cant make a good film of a clancy book leastwise not if you have read the book first. Dont get me wrong the film on its own and the book on their own are great its just the pair should never be seen together as the film only bears a small resemblance to the book. Having said that ...

Advantagesanswers some questions

Disadvantagesrasies even more questions

"So this is where we find out how Jack Ryan joins the CIA, and why he joins the CIA.

Second he is nearly killed after saving the Prince and Princess ..." Read review

Quick review of Patriot Games - Tom Clancy

"This is one of my favorite books! Well, i love almost every piece that Tom Clancy wrote. And certainly, Tom Clancy has proven his diligence in writing this one.

Advantagesthe book is better than the movie

Disadvantagesnone

"...to be released. I read Patriot Games a year or so before the film came out on video. I could not put this book down. I laughed, I cried, I enjoyed Jack Ryan kicking some butt. The plot is ex-CIA agent Jack Ryan was trying to enjoy mixing business and pleasure over here in jolly old England - when he stops an assassination attempt on members of the Royal Family. The terrorist then follow Jack back home to the USA and attempts to kill off his family. ..." Read review
