Patriot Games is a 1992 action-suspense film based on a Tom Clancy novel of the same name. The film follows retired CIA analyst Jack Ryan (played by Harrison Ford), as he manages to thwart a terrorist attack outside Buckingham Palace by chance during a vacation in London with his family. In the process of saving Lord Holmes, a distant relative of the Queen, Ryan kills one of the attackers, and unwittingly angers the leader of a Northern Irish splinter group Sean Miller (played by Sean Bean). When Ryan further testifies against the group in court, he is faced with an angry Northern Irish terrorist group that has vowed revenge against him and his family. This action-thriller, directed by Phillip Noyce, is an exciting film on revenge, espionage, and high-stake action. Also joined by Admiral Greer and Robby (played by James Earl Jones and Samuel L. Jackson respectively), this star-studded cast complements this adrenaline filled story.
