Night at the Movies-Sum of All Fears

Recommended Posts

Based on a Clancy book. Loved the movie. 8/10. I followed it well, but you need to be somewhat intelligent and informed to follow it at points though. Go see it. Interesting after 9/11. If they only made one off of Executive Orders.

I saw it, liked the story but I felt the movie's execution was poor.

I like Clear and Present Danger, but of course I never read the book. I hope they make a movie based on Executive Orders. Anyway, I think Sum of All Fears might be closer to the book since Clancy was an executive producer (but of course, never read the book, so I wouldn't know). But trust me, that movie rocks!

Several of the shots were poorly done, of note was the almost totally washed out 3 second clip of AFO while looking into the sun, overly brief clips of the Russian bombers and F16's they seemed like stock footage and CG, expecially the LGB's hitting, that looked like vintage Gulf War stuff.

It was things like that that got me, and the fact they really never played up the Nuke very well, it seemd rather weakly executed.

I saw it. It is an OK thriller which could've been better. But it still went to #1 on opening weekend. Go figure.

7/10
