The Sum of All Fears

"27,000 nuclear weapons. One is missing."

The Sum of All Fears is an American political thriller that was released in 2002 and based on a Tom Clancy novel of the same name. This film starts off with a Syrian scrap collector who happens to come across a large bomb that has yet to explode. This scrap collector then proceeds to sell the bomb to a South African arms dealer.

This movie comes to terms with several concepts such as how the American people are seen from other parts of the world, and how Americans view politics when it comes to nuclear weaponry and what may happen if an unstable country gets a hold of one of these weapons. This film also grants a close look to the other side's perspectives on how American policies may be construed from their point of view. There are lots of political intrigue that goes in these films with lots of back and forth between many men of power. There are also other factors that combine to make this film one that needs to be watched more than once to grasp the complexity of the matters at hand.
