Critic's Pick

'Clear and Present Danger'

February 18, 1996|Kenneth Turan

This 1994 blockbuster reaffirmed Harrison Ford's (pictured, right, with Henry Czerny) position as the most reliable action star around. This film is the third and easily the best of the Tom Clancy yarns about CIA analyst Jack Ryan. If "Danger" has a problem, it is that it starts too slowly. But the pleasantly complex story line, set in Washington and Colombia, twists and turns in unexpected ways. What is rarer than good action, though, is plausible dialogue and acting, and these are the film's key strengths (CMAX Sunday at 10 p.m.)
