The Sum of All Fears is a political thriller from 2002 based on the novel of the same name by Tom Clancy. The film follows Jack Ryan (played by Ben Affleck), a young CIA analyst who uncovers a plot by neo-Nazi terrorists to trigger a nuclear war between the United States and Russia. The plot of the movie centers around a Russian nuclear weapon that is lost during the Cold War and accidentally recovered by an Israeli pilot. The weapon falls into the hands of a neo-Nazi group led by Richard Dressler (played by Alan Bates), who plans to use it to destroy the United States and Russia and create a new world order.

Jack Ryan is tasked with uncovering the plot and preventing nuclear war. His investigation leads him to uncover a conspiracy involving a corrupt Russian official and secret negotiations between the United States and Russia.

As the tension between the two countries mounts, Jack and his team race against time to unravel the conspiracy and prevent a nuclear catastrophe. Along the way, he enlists the help of his mentor William Cabot (played by Morgan Freeman) and his love interest Dr. Catherine Muller (played by Bridget Moynahan).

The Sum of All Fears is a tense and gripping political thriller that explores the dangers of nuclear weapons and the complex relationships between world powers. The film features outstanding performances by Ben Affleck, Morgan Freeman, and the rest of the cast, and great special effects that bring the story to life.

The Sum of All Fears is a departure from the previous Jack Ryan films, which were more focused on espionage and international intrigue. The movie is darker and more intense, exploring the possibility of a global catastrophe caused by extremist groups and unstable regimes.

Despite its serious subject matter, The Sum of All Fears has moments of levity and humor, particularly in Jack Ryan's interactions with his team and his love interest. The film also features some pulse-pounding action sequences, including a thrilling chase scene through the streets of Baltimore.

Overall, The Sum of All Fears is an excellent movie that combines political intrigue, action, and drama into a captivating package. It is one of the best films in the Jack Ryan series and a must-watch for fans of political thrillers and action movies alike. Even if you haven't read the book, you'll be on the edge of your seat rooting for Jack Ryan to save the world from catastrophe.

The Sum of All Fears is a 2002 thriller with a runtime of 2 hours and 4 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 6.4 and a MetaScore of 45.
