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.

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.

This is one of my favourite films anyway having bought the DVD edition some time back. Why they have taken so long to release the Bu-ray edition though bewilders me.

In Blu-ray the Sum of All Fears really comes to life not only in the picture quality but also through the increase and crispness of the dynamic sound that the ageing DVD format cannot match.

It's a great drama too as a European fascist terror group acquire a nuclear bomb with a strategy to force all out war between Russia and the USA. Enough said but this film is worth keeping in your collection.

The threat of a Cold War between Russia and the U.S.A again looms......
What has not been at first been realized is that a Terrorist - Cell was trying to engineer a conflict between
the Super-States.
It is thought out of ignorance that the new 'Russian' president may well be a hard-liner and has promised
to make Russia the power they once were again.
What is also not known some while back an Israeli plane had been brought down in the desert and had
unofficially been carrying a nuclear-bomb.
The weapon had been found by a local tribesman who sells the device rather cheaply to the terrorists......
'C.I.A' Director 'William Cabot' (Morgan Freeman) and Agent 'Jack Ryan' (Ben Affleck) try to assess the threat
Russia poses, they are unaware that a bomb exists for sale on the black market and being sold to the highest
bidder.
The threat of triggering a nuclear device on American soil is very real, however even though it's discovered that
the bomb has been planted at a sports stadium in Baltimore locating it before it's detonated is another matter.
I feel the film is often under-rated some, it is a tension filled drama, well worth a watch or indeed a revisit....
Much to admire, the Special-Effects impressive.
