Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
Tom Clancy -- the Stephen King of spy thrillers -- creates high-tech, international tales of espionage and intrigue that translate smoothly into big-screen action pictures. It's no wonder Hollywood has built a franchise around heroic, patriotic CIA analyst Jack Ryan: he's part James Bond, part George Smiley, and 100 percent American. This deluxe DVD Collection compiles Special Collector's Editons of all four Jack Ryan titles. The first, Hunt for the Red October, features Sean Connery as the renegade captain of a new Soviet submarine that's so dangerous he has to... Well, only Alec Baldwin as Ryan seems to know exactly what he's up to. Tense, dramatically dignified owing much to Connery's presence, and ultimately quite thrilling, Hunt was deemed strong enough to launch sequels with different stars. The next film, Patriot Games, found Harrison Ford in the Ryan role. The switch has been chalked up to, at various times, either Baldwin's "unprofessional behavior" or his demand to be paid $4 million for the second movie; but even Ryan himself couldn't plum out the truth here. Patriot Games, with Ford's trademark low-key machismo and director Phillip Noyce's subtle, stylized action sequences, now had Ryan pitted against dissident IRA forces and showed that Clancy's formula for worldwide action wouldn't skip a beat with a casting change. Ford played Ryan again in the third installment in the series, Clear and Present Danger, in which Ryan confronts a violent Columbian drug cartel when they murder a friend of the President. Finally, there is the The Sum of All Fears, starring Ben Affleck as Ryan. An adaptation of a early Clancy novel about a nuclear attack on an American city, it also features Morgan Freeman in the role of a veteran agent.
Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
Assuming the mantle previously worn by Alec Baldwin and Harrison Ford, Ben Affleck becomes CIA agent Jack Ryan in this riveting spine-tingler based on one of Tom Clancy’s early novels. Sadly, The Sum of All Fears -- which depicts a terrorist’s nuclear attack upon an American city -- acquired unexpected relevance following the events of September 11, 2001. Ignoring the continuity established in the earlier Clancy adaptations The Hunt for Red October and Clear and Present Danger, Sum introduces Ryan as a callow intelligence analyst taken under the wing of a veteran agent Morgan Freeman when relations with Russia become strained to the breaking point. Unbeknownst to them, a nihilistic neo-fascist Alan Bates hopes to precipitate nuclear war by exploding a small atom bomb in a Baltimore football stadium -- and making sure that the Russians are blamed. The horrific consequences of this act are depicted realistically and in chilling detail, and Ryan races against time to prove that terrorists are behind the bombing. Sum’s script has some incongruities and relies on improbable coincidences, but director Phil Alden Robinson Field of Dreams maintains such a brisk pace that you won’t be aware of them until the film is over. Affleck may strike some Clancy fans as being too boyish to play Ryan, but he’s believable in the role and additionally enjoys the backing of a terrific supporting cast that includes James Cromwell as the beleaguered President, Liev Schreiber as a cold-blooded CIA "spook," and Colm Feore as one of Bates’s associates. At times a grim and even frightening film, The Sum of All Fears is also a compulsively watchable thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat -- literally. Robinson supplies two full-length commentaries for the film on DVD, one with cinematographer John Lindley and another with author Tom Clancy. There are also two featurettes covering various aspects of the film’s production.
