Ben Affleck is ready for action, commanding the role of CIA agent Jack Ryan in this thrilling adventure based on the Tom Clancy bestseller. America's Cold War fears are rekindled after the President of Russia dies and is succeeded by a man with a cryptic past. But East-West tensions erupt when the CIA suspects that renegade Russian scientists are developing more nuclear weapons. Mobilized into action by CIA Director William Cabot (Morgan Freeman), Jack Ryan (Affleck) follows a danger-ridden trail to a shocking conclusion: terrorists plan to provoke a war between the U.S. and Russia - by detonating a nuclear bomb at a championship football game! Costarring James Cromwell and Liev Schreiber, The Sum of All Fears adds up to the year's most explosive entertainment.




  • Such an underrated movie.

    Sure there are cheesy Ben Affleck moments. But Morgan Freeman is amazing in this movie.
  • Rotten tomatoes critiques needs an enema

    This movie is one of my favorites of all time. It depicts the ignorance and short-sidedness that many countries face with the threats of a nuclear terrorism. The acting, soundtrack, and directing is superb with excellent performances both on and off screen. The shortfall was from production because this could’ve easily been a three hour film, but due to budget shortfalls and time constraints much of Clancy’s story had to be scrapped. IMO, these production decisions truly hurt this films chances for winning an Oscar. This is a movie I’ll watch over and over again, especially the book. Movies like the Abyss, Titanic, and the Green Mile all had budget shortfalls, but still got the production funds to complete filming without compromising the script/ screenplay....thus as the band played on, they all won Oscars!

    Wrong Art Work

    The book was great. This movie title should be THE NAZIS OF ALL FEARS. This is completely ridiculous, the real threat to national security is Islamic extremists, the way the book is.
  • Please don’t compare this to the book

    This movie, in Hollywood’s passion to be politically correct, was nearly ruined but for the story line they finally adopted, about a plot of a neo-Nazi extremist group that finds, rebuilds, and detonates a nuclear weapon in the United States to set this country and Russia on a collision course for World War III. As implausible as this plot is (what kind of world would the neo-Nazis inherit after the entire biosphere would be forever poisoned by the radioactive fallout and weapon debris?), it manages to pull the plot out of the the fire in what is a mere shadow of the story and issues of the Clancy book. Nonetheless, it manages to be a very scary story with very, very real warnings of a clear and present danger to the United States as every terrorist group is hoping to find enough fissile material to build a few real nuclear weapons and set them off in cities all over the US., and at high altitude of the center of the nation, so that the U.S. is effectively destroyed, its electronic infrastructure and military burned out from the Electromagnetic Pulse which is intended to make the U.S. a nineteen-century nation, forever incapable of ever resisting Islamofascist intentions. An excellent movie despite the many flaws and implausibilities of the script. Hollywood trash, saved by great acting and cast selection. This movie should stand as a warning to Americans of one possible future — closer to reality than you could ever imagine.
  • Great plot, suspense, action!

  • He's not Harrison Ford

    By krunchy144
    I thought this movie was exciting and fun to watch, it seems everybody is comparing this to the Harrison Ford movies which he also plays Jack Ryan and IMO is way better. It's a bit slow the first 30 minutes but picks up the rest of the wy through.
  • Great Stuff

    By ScottTheDott
    Tom Clancy writing is spot on & it's scary that the subject matter is totally plausible. Ready the nukes, whoever has the largest guns, dictate the terms!

    Any action fan who likes edge of your seat entertainment will love this movie.
