Customer Reviews

It's just stupid stuff that should not happen in a movie like this.
T. SIMPSON
One of the best Tom Clancy novels yet, and one of the best movie adaptations of one of his books.

Another Great movie about Jack Ryan played by Ben Affleck and also starring Morgan Freeman.

I've read Clancy (but not this one) and I've seen all the "Clancy" movies many times. My wife drives me nuts by saying, "that wouldn't happen..." so I understand all you who try to analyze the plot for theoretical accuracy. But.... this is a work of entertainment based on fictional accounts of political conflict. Did it entertain? Absolutely. Did Affleck portray Jack Ryan the way Clancy wrote him? Of course. Are the plot points of the movie plausible? Well, maybe, but - that's the point of Clancy. In case you didn't notice, Tom Clancy was executive producer of this film so he certainly had considerable input. Yeah, they changed the chronology of Jack Ryan. Whooppee! That makes Debt of Honor and Executive Orders completely future potential for Ben Affleck as Ryan considering they can now do Cardinal of the Kremlin which they couldn't have done with Harrison Ford. Hmmmm, do we want to see more Clancy movies? Yes!

59 of 72 people found the following review helpful By Robert Jordan on April 26, 2002
I'm a hard-core Tom Clancy fan and was surprised to see how much this latest film adaptation wandered from the book, but it was still very entertaining. The latest incarnation of Jack Ryan is very young and inexperienced. The film seems to pretend the other Jack Ryan adventures haven't happened. Jack is new with the CIA and doesn't know the ropes the way he does in the book. He isn't even married yet. Morgan Freeman is wonderful as his boss (no surprise there) and the relationship between them is the best part of the film.
I'm no expert, but there seemed to be some technical flaws which required that the viewer suspend their skepticism. (Would cell phones continue to work when your local area has been hit by a nuke?) Still a worthy addition to the series. Clancy's readers will have to be especially open-minded though.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
The producers of this film decided to change the villains from Islamic extremists to neo-nazis (after all, Nazis don't have a lobby--everyone hates them). The producers have to be hating life post-911 since in my opinion at least this greatly detracted from the relevance of the film. Serves them right for listening to Political Correctness rather than reality.
The movie is based, of course, on Tom Clancy's novel "The Sum of All Fears" and deals with the detonation by terrorists of an atomic bomb on American soil. To that extent, the movie follows the novel. But the movie alters the villains ..., and apparently decided to cast the hero, Jack Ryan, as a much younger man evidently to enable Ben Affleck to play the part. Afleck is OK as Jack Ryan, but only OK. Morgan Freeman does his customary great job in the role as the CIA director, and his mentoring of Ryan is my favorite part of the movie. The chemistry between Freeman and Affleck is good, which helps to make up for, well, Affleck. The rest of the cast turns in pretty decent performances.
Since in the movie Ryan is a junior analyst rather than Deputy CIA Director (to enable Affleck to play Ryan) the part where Ryan prevents world war 3 is less plausible. Readers of the book will know what I mean--spoiler omitted here.
Overall, the movie moves along pretty well, and tells a complicated story about as coherently as possible in the movie medium. There is plenty of drama and action. The special effects are good.
This is not a great movie, but it is a good one. The DVD audio and video are very good.

Format: DVD
From seeing the Sum of All Fears it looks like Clancy needs to excercize more conrol over his books being released as movies. The director & writers did a simply horrible job. First, the movie is nearly completely sanatized of any Islamic terrorist themes which were in the book. The director obviously went way overboard in trying to make everything so P.C.that any reader of the book will see the movie as boring and lame, not to mention virtually unrecognizable. Also, the native Indian radical is written out of the movie as are the East German scientists & a great ending with peace in the Middle East. Nearly all of the Arabic characters are also written out of the movie too. If is by FAR the worst adaption of any Clancy book to movies.

The movie also confuses Jack Ryan fans by making him unmaried, his CIA co-workers look like a bunch of high school kids at lunch break & the acting is fairly poorly done except for the guy playing the Russian president. The going back to the past just does not work & the flick is a failure. Don't waste your time or money on it. Go see the Search for Red October or Clear and Present Danger instead.

Format: VHS Tape
Jack Ryan, the hero of several of Tom Clancy's novels, is back at it in this movie about terrorism and global nuclear war.

In 1973, during the Arab-Israeli war, a lone Israeli pilot took off and flew toward the Arab lines. His cargo: one nuclear bomb. However, the plane is shot down, but somehow, the bomb survived. It is soon buried in the sand and left unnoticed for twenty-nine years.

Meanwhile, trouble has been occuring in other parts of the world as well. The President of Russia mysteriously dies, and a new President, Nemerov, (Ciaran Hinds) takes power. This move alerts the American CIA, especially director William Cabot (Morgan Freeman). Nemerov is known to be a wild card, and many are unsure of his motives. However, Jack Ryan (Ben Affleck) isn't convinced about Nemerov. Ryan wrote a paper about Nemerov, and he seems to think that he is more conservative in his views.

Directed by President Robert Fowler (James Cromwell), Cabot and Ryan are sent to Russia to check on the status of their nuclear disarmament. Once there, they are given a tour of a Russian nuclear assembly plant. Many renowned Russian scientists work there. However, three have mysteriously disappeared.

Back in the Middle East, two men have managed to dig up the remains of the missing nuclear bomb. They sell them to a man named Olson (Colm Feore), who pays a mere [...] for the bomb. Immediately, the wheels are set in motion. The three missing Russian scientists and Olson have devised a plan to construct their own nuclear bomb, smuggle it back into the United States, and detonate it at the Super Bowl. The detonation would lead the United States to believe that, due to the instability of the Russian government under Nemerov, the Russians would be blamed for the detonation.
