4.0 out of 5 stars It's a *movie* folks... June 19, 2002
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!

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun and suspenseful 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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not really following the story March 14, 2003
Format:DVD
If you have not read the book ,then this review will not really pertain to you. This movie followed the book in only one sense. A nuclear bomb went off. It wasn't even in the right city. Jack Ryan isn't a rookie in the book, he the Deputy Director. Tom, the book was good, you didn't really need to change it. You lost a lot of plot twists like the reports of missing nukes and the whole affair thing. The lack of all of this really messed up on the story in the book. Just a note if you have read the book, haven't seen the movie, and don't want to be disapointed.

2.0 out of 5 stars Politically correct Tom Clancy September 27, 2005
By John
Format:DVD
I watched this the other night, and can't believe how politically correct it is. The bad guys are Austrians, Isrealis, and, indirectly, the U.S. military-industrial complex. I wonder what Tom Clancy thinks about that. Muslims are just innocent bystanders, and the liberals save the day, because war is all just a misunderstanding, or is caused by European nazis. This movie is shameless political correctness. The film is actually excellent, but I give it only two stars for the tired leftwing cliches. If they had filmed it based on Clancy's novel, it would have been great. I think Hollywood just copped out and got scared of portraying the Muslims as "the enemy", and so did what they always do: just turn the bad guys into white nazis. South Africans are no longer available, so they went to the "default": Austrians (guys, World War II is over).

1.0 out of 5 stars what a mess August 8, 2005
Format:DVD
there's not much more to say about how badly every aspect of this film sucks. other reviewers have pretty much said it all. i'll just say this: i hated Sum Of All Fears and I never even read the book. To me, an adapted films correlation to its source material is irrelevent. If the movie was an exact replication of the book that would not make it any better. the movie sucks on its own merit. from the acting (cumulatively, the worst i have EVER SEEN), to the dialogue (often painful and generall obvious), to the action (as in the complete lack thereof), this movie is a complete failure. And Ben Affleck should thank whoever it was that gave him permission to be a movie star.

1.0 out of 5 stars Butchering a Good Book January 29, 2003
Format:DVD
Evidently some of us take our Clancy straight. While this movie isn't bad in it's own light, it's such a complete departure from the book, it loses all connection for those of us who know and are friends of Clancy's many characters. Altering the Middle east attackers to Neo-Nazis completely changes the tone of the movie as well as throwing a bone to the PC element. Changing Ryan to a young punk - new to the organization and untried - also significantly changes the complexion of the movie, and not for the better. The character playing John Clark should be put in the penalty box for the next couple of years - his portrayal of Clark and Clark's method simply doesn't work and is a betrayal to the character Clancy created.
Simply put, this movie had so little to do with the EXCELLENT story written by Clancy, it seems unfair to advertise it as the same story.
For all that, Afleck did a good job (though Harrison is a HARD act to follow.) As always, Cromwell played his role with style and grace, I've yet to see him in any role where he did not excel.

1.0 out of 5 stars Clancy & the films producers sell out!!!!!!! August 23, 2002
I have written a lenghthy review of this film @ IMDB.com which contains comparisons between the book and the movie. I will not repeat that review here. I don't want to put spoilers about the film in this review because I tried that before and Amazon.com would not post my review. So as not to violate the Amazon.com policy regarding spoilers. I will review the book and then comment on the movie.
THE SUM OF ALL FEARS is a critical book in the Jack Ryan time line. In the book Jack is the Deputy Director of Intelligence and holds one of the highest positons in the CIA. The book then plots the middle eastern terrorists plans. It also goes into great depth to show the relationship between Jack, the President and the Presidents national security advisor. Agent Spinnaker the Russian spy helps to add to conflict as he feeds the CIA false data that will hopefully result in his becoming Russias new leader. Most importantly Jack forms an alliance with the Vice President Darling that will lead to Jack becoming Vice President after Darling becomes President in DEBT OF HONOR (DOH). After that Jack becomes President in EXECUTIVE ORDERS (EO).
Next to THE HUNT FOR RED OCTOBER this is my favorite Clancy novel. This story has it all. It shows what a truely gifted writer Clancy is but then we come to the movie version of the book. I don't know how Clancy could support this baztardization of his book. Except for a nuclear weapon going off in the U.S. there are almost no other similarities between the book and the movie. And because Ben Affleck has assumed the role of Jack Ryan it is almost impossible to Make DOH or EO. In order to be President or Vice President the individual must be over 35 years old. Ben who was in his late 20's when this was made has a way to go yet.
