Oh dear. Why do so many people have to analyse films so deeply. I always thought they were supposed to entertain, not invite intellectual analysis. The Sum of All Fears is excellent entertainment. What does it matter if bits are unbelievable? Surely, a fictional story is a vehicle for the imagination. As for anti-Semitism. P-lease.... Everyone I know who has seen this film has been delighted with it. It has great tension and often leaves you breathless. The actual nuclear incident breaks into the film with a shocking surprise, even though there is a considerable build up to it. It comes out of nowhere, just as it would in real life. Incidentally, the respective presidents are well portrayed. The 'halo' of advisers, good and bad, certainly exists in real life. I doubt that many decisions are actually unique to these individuals. Highly recommended entertainment to be enjoyed with a beer and a good selection of snacks.

The Sum of All Fears is directed by Phil Alden Robinson and adapted to screenplay by Paul Attanasio and Daniel Pyne from the novel of the same name written by Tom Clancy. It stars Ben Affleck, Morgan Freeman, James Cromwell, Ciaran Hinds, Liev Schreiber, Bridget Moynahan and Michael Byrne. Music is scored by Jerry Goldsmith and cinematography by John Lindley.

Film is the fourth film to feature the character Jack Ryan (Affleck). It is set in present day 2002 but with Ryan younger than in the other films and at the start of his career in the CIA. Plot is Cold War themed and finds America in a sweat when it is found that renegade terrorists have a nuclear weapon in their possession; just as a new supposed radical president takes up office in Russia.

Our most basic common link is that we all inhabit this small planet, we all breathe the same air, we all cherish our children's futures, and we are all mortal.

2002 saw two great thrillers released that starred Ben Affleck, one was Changing Lanes, the other was this Jack Ryan based effort that attempted to reboot the series. Coming a year after the September 11 attacks and featuring a plot involving terrorists using a bomb that America supplied the Israelis in the 70s during the Yom Kippur War, it was material too close to the bone for some critics. Yet the film did well at the box office in the States and including Worldwide takings it garnered well over $100 million in profit. Impressive figures considering it's not an action blockbuster, it relies on brain over brawn and leading man Affleck was on the back of Pearl Harbor and bearing the brunt of critical scorn.

Each day we lose a little bit more of our separate, sovereign ability to determine our own futures...

Films like 'The Sum of All Fears' often get an unfair press, reviewers moaning about poor characterization, over-emphasis on visuals, plot-holes and other such things, when all the time these movies - techno-thrillers, as they're often known - are just doing what they supposed to be doing: entertaining the audience on quite a basic, bubble-gum level. This latest cinematic re-working of a Tom Clancy novel - starring Morgan Freeman, Ben Affleck, and a whole host of other 'name' actors - succeeds admirably on that level. Although at times it's a little dumber than it needs to be (making Jack Ryan a lot younger than he is in the book is part of the problem), most of the time it has the right blend of wit, excitement, tension, and explosions to carry the audience through.
Affleck is competent when he needs to be, and does a good job as Jack Ryan (Alec Baldwin was better, though, in 'The Hunt for Red October'), but the real star of the show is Liev Schreibner (playing special ops agent John Clark) who in his limited screen time completely inhabits his role, and turns out a fantastic performance. Schreibner is one to watch. The other performances are all good, but the script isn't really asking a lot of top-class actors like Morgan Freeman or James Cromwell, and what they squeeze out is dependent on the scene they're in. But 'The Sum of All Fears' isn't about the actors - it's about the drama, the excitement, the thrills and spills. Even though the plot isn't all that complex, it seems like there is a lot happening, and as long as you don't think about it for too long, it holds itself together.

7 of 9 people found the following review helpful By J. E. Parry VINE VOICE on 11 Mar 2003
Format: DVD
The first thing that everyone knows about this film is that we have the third reincarnation of Jack Ryan. And this can be a bit disturbing to some people.
We've had the hammy Alec Baldwin and the heavyweight Harrison Ford. Now for film 4 we have the pretty but not that convincing Ben Affleck.
This caused a dilemma for the director and led to a wholesale script rewrite. Out have gone the Arab terrorists of the book and are replaced by a neo-Nazi group of Europeans. Evidently we can't offend Arabs but Europeans are open season for Hollywood. The film still centres on a nuclear bomb being smuggled into the US and used to destroy a city.
The other problem for the film makers was the need to reinvent Ryan as a younger character to accomodate Affleck. As such they have used it to show some of Ryan's earlier life and to include the meeting and courtship of his future wife.
The film is an engrossing thriller but not a blood and guts action movie. There is a strong cast and a good, well told story.
Does Affleck cut it as a young Jack Ryan? I think that depends on your view of him. I think he's a liitle too wooden but this is a good addition to the series. Let's hope he gets another chance.
