Unboxing the JACK RYAN 4K 5-Film Collection Box Set

As Tom Clancy’s most enduring character makes his way back to TV screens in Amazon’s new Jack Ryan series, his five film adventures, released from 1990 to 2014, are arriving on UHD Blu-ray in a new 4K box set.

The set includes the original trilogy of films, The The Hunt For Red October starring Alec Baldwin and Patriot Games and Clear and Present Danger which recast the role to Harrison Ford; as well as the two one-shot reboots: The Sum of All Fears and Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit, starring Ben Affleck and Chris Pine respectively.

The package’s slipcover features a metallic foil appearance and embossed titles.

The inner case is a black case as is typical with 4K releases. This is the largest one I’ve seen to date, housing 10 discs inside (each movie in dual formats).

As an aside, the discs are packed in seemingly random order. (After photographing them I rearranged them chronologically, as one does).

Also included are digital copies of all five movies. Each has its own code, which is always a nice contrast to a single code for multiple titles.

The Jack Ryan 4K 5-Film Collection is now available from Paramount.
