Blown Away is a 1994 action film starring Jeff Bridges and Tommy Lee Jones. It was directed by Stephen Hopkins.


Lt. Jimmy Dove (Jeff Bridges) is a veteran disposal technician on the Boston Police bomb squad, who irritates his captain, partner and everyone else when he plays hero and disarms dangerous explosives. But nobody, except for his uncle Max (Lloyd Bridges), knows of Jimmy's dark past. Originally from Belfast, Northern Irelandmarker, Jimmy's actual name is Liam McGivney. He had been friends and partners with Ryan Gaerity (Tommy Lee Jones), who, unbeknownst to Jimmy/Liam, was a freelance terrorist. After a botched attempt to stop one of Gaerity's bombs led to the bomber's imprisonment and the death of his girlfriend (Gaerity's sister), Jimmy/Liam fled to Boston. When Gaerity escapes (also fleeing to Boston), he finds Jimmy, who is semi-retired but working as an instructor, and starts taunting his old protegé with threats and his homemade explosives. With his family and friends in danger, Jimmy reveals his secret to his wife Kate (Suzy Amis) and returns to action to hunt for Gaerity, while fellow officer Anthony Franklin (Forest Whitaker) investigates Jimmy, suspecting his and Gaerity's connection.
