    Synopsis


    The Sum of All Fears
    The successful franchise of Paramount motion pictures based on novelist Tom Clancy's techno-thrillers featuring heroic CIA intelligence analyst Jack Ryan stages a much-publicized "do-over" with this action-adventure that recasts the character of Ryan as a rookie to the complex game of geopolitical warfare. Ben Affleck takes the reins from Harrison Ford as Ryan, a greenhorn CIA historian and analyst who finds himself thrust front and center into the spy community's spotlight when Nemerov (Ciaran Hinds), a Russian politician on whom Ryan is an expert, suddenly becomes the leader of the former Soviet Union upon the current president's unexpected demise. Attached to the director of the CIA, Cabot (Morgan Freeman), Ryan insists -- contrary to the opinions of many high-ranking White House officials -- that Nemerov is not a warmonger. Meanwhile, a cadre of neo-fascists, led by Dressler (Alan Bates), plots the detonation at the Super Bowl in Baltimore, MD, of a nuclear device recovered from a long-ago Israeli fighter jet crash, a terrorist incident they intend to spark a war between the super powers, leaving them to conquer the world in the conflict's post-apocalyptic vacuum. The Sum of All Fears co-stars James Cromwell, Bridget Moynahan, and Liev Schreiber as covert operative John Clark, a character central to another series of Clancy's best-selling tomes. ~ Karl Williams, Rovi

      Disappointing movie based on Tom Clancy novel

      This was Ben Affleck's first and deservedly last role in playing Jack Ryan. Affleck pales in comparison to Harrison Ford in the role. The movie is unfaithful to the novel in its choice of villains (which weakens the movie's credibility). Overall, this is a very uneven movie with Affleck and the unbelievable choice of villains, but it has some high points such as Liev Schreiber stealing the movie as John Clark and Ciaran Hinds as the Russian leader. Unlike the two Jack Ryan movies starring Harrison Ford, SUM OF ALL FEARS has a lot of special features, the best of which is the commentary by Tom Clancy and director Phil Alden Robinson. In the commentary, it's enjoyable to see Clancy voice his criticism over how the movie was unfaithful to his novel.

      I think that "The Sum Of All Fears" was once again one of the greatest films of all-time that were based off of Tom Clancy's novels and it was also one of my favorite films of all-time. I've read and enjoyed all of Tom Clancy's novels and was a fan of all the films in this entire series. I also think that "The Sum Of All Fears" had a lot of entertaining and enjoyable action, mystery, suspense and drama including a really great and amazing cast and storylines as well.

      Parts of the movie has not been perfectly touched-up...some shots had a "sparkling" effect to it......I have the new 46" Samsung 650 as a TV and this is the first movie out of my 35 BD collection to do this. 2nd problem.....If you try to select a scene, wether from the main menu...or the pop-up menu.....the disc freezes and forces the player to shut down. My player is the new Samsung BD1500 Best BD player out there

      This is a real "possible-end-of-the-world" movie! The story is done well, and the actors preformed just as good! It is Thrilling and Pressingly suspense filled at the same time! I am a fan of movies that Freeman has been in, and this keeps the good reputation going. Recommended!

      CIA "newby" Jack Ryan (Ben Affleck) has his hands full trying to find out who has rigged an atomic weapon delivered to the US, trying to keep his girl happy and trying to stay alive all at the same time. Morgan Freeman play an amazing part in this film.

      A decent entry in the Jack Ryan series

      This movie isn't bad, but it's not quite as good as the other movies in the series. That said, it's still an entertaining film. The picture quality is lacking the fine detail of newer releases, but it's certainly passable. The audio is pretty good, however.
