The Wasteland
There is a furious anger in Harrison Ford?a fear of being wronged, and a fear of what he might do to those who wronged him. This anger never surfaces in comedies (which is wise, because it's way too frightening for comedy), and in adventure films and dramas he strategically suppresses it, just as his characters must strategically suppress it. But when Ford's anger does boil up, the effect is electrifying: think of the scene in Witness where Ford beats up a tourist thug who is harassing his Amish protectors, or the expression of pure righteous fury on his face in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom right after he belts a Thuggee guard across the chops and prepares to break the shackles of slave children.
