Clear and Present Danger (1994) Movie Review
Whether you enjoy the Tom Clancy mould or not, one thing is for certain: his novels are far too densely plotted to ever be conveyed entirely faithfully on screen. For the most part they keep the basic strands of their respective plots and shoehorn them into an easily digestible two-hour runtime for mass market consumption. The book of Clear and Present Danger is a much heavier beast than its excellent film adaptation but both revolve around a covert war between American Special Forces and the Columbian drug cartels. Not that this is necessarily a bad thing, but Clancy has a tendency to throw away any intellectual pretences in favour of superior firearms. That said, he is a thriller writer and on this front he never fails to deliver. Whilst the plot clearly sets up events for the subsequent book The Sum of All Fears , the juggling act between dense plotting and thrilling set-pieces is expertly managed, even if you have to suspend some belief that recurring protagonist Jack Ryan is frequently stuck in the middle of the chaos from book to book he gets around for an analyst.
