Patriot Games is a 1992 action-suspense film directed by Phillip Noyce and based on Tom Clancy's novel of the same name. It is a sequel to the 1990 film The Hunt for Red October. In the movie, Jack Ryan is played by Harrison Ford, Jack's surgeon-wife, Dr. Cathy Muller Ryan, by Anne Archer, and the vengeful Irish Republican volunteer, Sean Miller, is played by Sean Bean. Jack Ryan (Ford) is on a "working vacation" in London with his family. He has retired from the CIA and is a professor at the United States Naval Academy. They witness an attack on Lord William Holmes (James Fox), British Secretary of State for Northern Ireland and a distant cousin of the Queen Mother. Ryan intervenes and kills one of the attackers, Patrick Miller, while his older brother Sean (Bean) looks on. Ryan is badly wounded. The remaining attackers flee and leave Miller to be apprehended by the police.
