    "I already read this novel of Robert Ludlum. But after watching the movie adaptation, it didn't lose the character of Jason Bourne. He's still the best missing in action agent. At least, for a while. "

    "I'm a big fan of Tom Clancy and when I discovered a movie adaptation of Patriot Games, I could say that Harrison Ford's acting is perfect for Jack Ryan. Ever since I watched this actor on Air Force One, I looked for his other films."

    "If you're thinking that this is a romance film because of the title, then you're wrong.  John Travolta's acting here made me hooked into watching this especially in those action scenes. "
