CIA analyst Jack Ryan must stop the plans of a Neo Nazis faction that threatens to induce a catastrophic conflict between the United States and Russia's newly elected president by detonating a nuclear weapon at a football game in Baltimore.
When the president of Russia suddenly dies, a man whose politics are virtually unknown succeeds him. The change in political leaders sparks paranoia among American CIA officials, so CIA director Bill Cabot recruits a young analyst to supply insight and advice on the situation. Then the unthinkable happens: a nuclear bomb explodes in a U.S. city, and America is quick to blame the Russians.Written by

Harrison Ford dropped out of reprising the role of Jack Ryan, because he and Phillip Noyce could not agree on the script. Noyce ended up dropping out of the film as well. See more »
There are at least two different "Tail Numbers" shown for the President's aircraft - a four digit (42xx) tail number is used when the aircraft is on the ground, and later a five digit (7xxxx) number is used when the plane is flying. See more »

Um, yes, I need to deliver some information to prevent a war, is that cool with you guys? Worth a rent.
First thing that struck me was the casting of Ben Affleck- im not sure why and if this was just me, but i expected him to come out with some punch lines and start cracking jokes at any second- he just didn't fit the role for me personally. Morgan Freeman also didn't seem to have a solid cast in this movie.
The story was fairly captivating however, Cromwell was good to watch as always and Morgan Freeman did his best given the role Overall worth a rent but probably not a buy guys. Catch it on TV if you can and you will be probably entertained for that night.
