Review Trying to fit The Sum of All Fears into the Jack Ryan timeline is going to cause continuity buffs a nightmare. From all appearances, this is a prequel to the other Ryan films (The Hunt for Red October, Patriot Games, Clear and Present Danger) - after all, our hero is younger, just starting out at the CIA, and still dating the woman he was married to in the other movies. But, from a global perspective, things are out of synch. The other three Ryan movies were clearly established in the '90s; The Sum of All Fears is firmly set in 2002. So what's going on here? A time warp, perhaps, or an alternate universe. The best approach is not to think about this stuff too hard. The movie stands up well enough on its own...Because of 9/11, The Sum of All Fears is more demanding than the usual escapist summer fare. The echoes of reality in its plot points make suspension of disbelief a facile thing, but therein lies a double-edged blade. Will viewers be able to abandon themselves to the rhythms of the story and the horrors contained therein without the steady presence of Harrison Ford to shepherd them forward? The movie does what all good thrillers should do - provide enough shocks and surprises to keep us guessing, and never lets up on the suspense until the end credits arrive.

Review Oh, for the innocent days when a movie like "The Sum of All Fears" could be enjoyed as a "thriller." In these dark times, it is not a thriller but a confirmer, confirming our fears that the world is headed for disaster. The film is about the detonation of a nuclear device in an American city. No less an authority than Warren Buffet recently gave a speech in which he flatly stated that such an event was "inevitable"...The movie is based on another of Clancy's fearfully factual stories about Jack Ryan, the CIA agent, this time a good deal younger than Harrison Ford's Ryan in "A Clear and Present Danger" and played by Ben Affleck. It follows the ancient convention in which the hero goes everywhere important and personally performs most of the crucial actions, but it feels less contrived because Clancy has expertise about warfare and national security issues; the plot is a device to get us from one packet of information to another...Director Phil Alden Robinson and his writers, Paul Attanasio and Daniel Pyne, do a spellbinding job of cranking up the tension, they create a portrait of convincing realism, and then they add the other stuff because, well, if anybody ever makes a movie like this without the obligatory Hollywood softeners, audiences might flee the theater in despair. My own fear is that in the post-apocalyptic future, "The Sum of All Fears" will be seen as touchingly optimistic.
