The Sum of All Fears is ultimately a decent Ryan adventure that could (and should) have been so much better...

A solid thriller with a great cast that tends to suffer from some faults...

Though this political adventure requires substantial suspension of disbelief, the witty script and mature approach keep the film on track. [Blu-Ray]

... Entertaining and far more relevant than most other action/adventure movies.

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

It's a tired premise, and it's got its flaws, but the present talent makes it worthwhile.

Tom Clancy franchise gets a surprisingly satisfying reinvention thanks to star Ben Affleck and director Phil Alden Robinson.

Not great filmmaking, probably not even vintage Clancy, but it's a good enough political thriller.

Superior genre storytelling, which gets under our skin simply by crossing the nuclear line.
| Original Score: 3.5/4

The Sum of All Fears proves that the Jack Ryan franchise still has some legs. Most importantly, it also has a brain.

All shame aside, not being a Tom Clancy fan or Jack Ryan fan, I did quite enjoy it. Is it Morgan Freeman?

El filme provoca que la audiencia piense y medite sobre el mundo en que habitamos, así como en los obsoletos sistemas de gobierno que hemos creado como sociedad.

If the measure of a movie is its ability to make you think about the ideas it contains, The Sum of All Fears is a success in many of the ways that count.

A competent Tom Clancy thriller that's betrayed by a miscast Ben Affleck as Jack Ryan.

If nothing else, this film may stand as a cultural testament to how times really have changed since Sept. 11 -- and not necessarily the way we'd expect.
