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.

The story holds your interest, but it has clear flaws relating to the villain and the parties to the conflict.

To sum it up: heavy on imagination and light on reality.

A Alden Robinson, el director, le sent bien la amistad con Tom Hanks y Spielberg al haber dirigido recientemente para la TV, el drama de guerra Band of Brothers.

takes on a gut-churning immediacy that is hard to deny

Sum" is Jack Ryan's "do-over." Give credit to everyone from Robinson down to the key grip that this bold move works. Especially give credit to Affleck.

Action-packed and exciting!
June 11, 2002
A tense, capably-made film that's exciting and realistic enough to satisfy filmgoers who've had their fill of Hollywood's usual ultra-unrealistic blockbuster fare.

It's been eight years since Clear and Present Danger, but this late-blooming entry shows that none of the luster has worn off the series.

Current events lend this an urgent intensity it probably was not intended to evince.

Affleck gets better with each film. It will be interesting to see him age with the Jack Ryan role.

The sum of all parts adds up to a great Sum of All Fears

Filled with action, intrigue and tension, it is the best of all Clancy adaptations ...

Advance buzz for The Sum of All Fears was it was better than Red October. Rest assured, it's not. In fact, for the first hour, Sum isn't better than much of anything, and then boom . . . it turns into a good movie.

If you don't examine certain aspects of the plot %u2013 hell, most aspects of the plot %u2013 too closely, it's a big-budget glossy suspenser with a marvelous cast that manages to occasionally cross the line into being a real nail-biter.

There were moments in the theater where it was so quiet that I thought that people were literally scared to breathe. The nature of the film is that intense, but it is definitely a roller coaster ride worth going on.

Director Phil Alden Robinson seems a bit out of his element, but he navigates the doomsday scenario with reasonable aplomb.
