August 13, 2016
The Sum of All Fears is ultimately a decent Ryan adventure that could (and should) have been so much better...
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
January 22, 2014
[Ben Affleck's] Jack Ryan is simply impossible to take seriously, and that's something the film could probably never survive.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10
January 1, 2011
Generic action film not good for kids, or anyone.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
April 29, 2009
A solid thriller with a great cast that tends to suffer from some faults...
August 5, 2008
Though this political adventure requires substantial suspension of disbelief, the witty script and mature approach keep the film on track. [Blu-Ray]
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
January 7, 2004
... Entertaining and far more relevant than most other action/adventure movies.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
November 7, 2003
So don't worry, take in a matinee.
September 22, 2003
Has enough clichés and cut-out characters to condemn it to mediocrity.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
July 21, 2003
Realizando um bom trabalho ao condensar o complexo livro de Clancy, o filme é tenso, inteligente e conta com fortes atuações de todo o elenco - inclusive de Affleck, que confere uma curiosa vulnerabilidade ao herói.
| Original Score: 4/5
February 8, 2003
It's a tired premise, and it's got its flaws, but the present talent makes it worthwhile.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
November 10, 2002
I didn't believe for a moment in these villains or their plot.
November 7, 2002
Tom Clancy franchise gets a surprisingly satisfying reinvention thanks to star Ben Affleck and director Phil Alden Robinson.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
October 21, 2002
Not great filmmaking, probably not even vintage Clancy, but it's a good enough political thriller.
October 15, 2002
It's all fast and loud and pulse-pounding, of course, but nothing that we haven't seen dozens of times on screen after imaginary disasters.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
September 9, 2002
Superior genre storytelling, which gets under our skin simply by crossing the nuclear line.
| Original Score: 3.5/4
August 23, 2002
The Sum of All Fears is remarkably fuddled about motives and context, which drains it of the dramatic substance that would shake us in our boots (or cinema seats).
August 22, 2002
The exposition-heavy screenplay favours deathly dialogue scenes over actually showing us action unfolding.

The Sum of All Fears proves that the Jack Ryan franchise still has some legs. Most importantly, it also has a brain.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
August 15, 2002
Clancy's world is strictly for the techno-nerds and frankly they're welcome to it.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5
August 5, 2002
Deals with a chillingly topical nuclear attack on Baltimore. But perhaps more disturbingly, it rehashes it into a Ben Affleck action romance.
