    I’m with Roger on Patriot Games. The film really have a strong first and second act. But after all of that promise, the end of the film turns it into a middle of the road action thriller. The speedboat chase that ends the movie reminds me a whole lot of the speedboat chase in Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade.

    Patrick, it’s OK, but I still disagree. I think it’s a great thriller all the way through, one of many movies for grownups that Harrison Ford made in the 80s and 90s, making him in many ways the modern-day Humphrey Bogart. And speaking of Bogart, the speedboat scene at the end actually reminds me of the speedboat scene at the end of “Key Largo,” another great thriller set largely in a single house. Sometimes I wonder if it was a little homage to the earlier film, actually.
