10. Patriot Games
Taking over the role of Jack Ryan from Alec Baldwin (who played Ryan in The Hunt for Red October), Harrison Ford’s performance as Tom Clancy’s most famous character still remains the best one to date (sorry Baldwin, Ben Affleck, and Chris Pine). 1992′s Patriot Games follows has Ford’s retired CIA agent Ryan battling against a group of Irish radicals led by Sean Bean’s Patrick Miller. Things get personal really quickly after Ryan stops an assassination attempt, and Miller’s men go after Ryan’s wife and daughter, injuring them both severely in a car crash. Tom Clancy wasn’t a fan of the tweaks made to the ending of Patriot Games (it’s apparently a lot different than the book’s conclusion), but these changes didn’t stop it from being one of Ford’s best films.
