Ben Affleck is a pretty good director, but he is a weak actor, and it shows in this film (as well as others). Fortunately, the story has Morgan Freeman to boost the story.
Paramount is doing a fine job with their transfers these days, and the Jack Ryan seriesÂ certainly deserves such treatment.
Perhaps Paramount realized that the fourth installment is not as good as the previous three, so they added more extras, includingÂ the making of, Creating Reality: The Visual Effects of The Sum of All Fears,Â and other things. Nevertheless, the extras section is still rather Spartan.
