The Sum of All Fears

3/5 stars

CIA analyst, Jack Ryan, chases down a terrorist group who has gotten their hands on a nuclear bomb with plans to detonate it in the United States.

This is the fourth Jack Ryan movie so far. The most memorable are Patriot Games and Clear and Present Danger — the two with Harrison Ford as Jack Ryan. This latest installment introduces Ben Affleck as Jack Ryan, and seems to pull back the hands of time a bit (Ryan has just started dating his future wife, whereas in Patriot Games, his wife and child are threatened by IRA terrorists). While I’m not, in general, a huge Ben Affleck fan, I think he did a good job in taking up the Jack Ryan torch.
