Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: The movie kills most of the fun by watering down Clancy.
Fresh: Much of Patriot Games is routine: good guys and bad guys running around with heavy artillery. But at its best moments, Noyce and Ford snap the genre back to life.
Fresh: Patriot Games is a good laugh, and a good look at Harrison Ford, and any connection with political truth, or with the real layout of London, is entirely coincidental.
Great Movie! Worth the download and for keeps!!!!
What's up with the plot summary?
Hey iTunes...what's the deal with the slant in the plot summary? I'm sure if I wanted an editorial, I would have just skipped to the comment section. Is there some reason you hate this movie? Are you just another repressed Alec Baldwin fan? I think this film is great, and isn't that far off the script from the book. If you are looking for a Clancy film that really departs from the book storyline, why not slam "The Sum of All Fears" instead?
Nice review iTunes. That's a brilliant way to sell a movie. While the plot to attack Ryan's seaside home is farfetched, the movie is fun and intense. After all, it is a work of fiction. What's more unbelievable is Ben Affleck as Jack Ryan in The Sum of All Fears. Gimme a break man.
