    The Sum of All Fears

    ★★★

    The Sum of All Fears (2002) - Ben Affleck is such a step down from Harrison Ford that it's depressing, but I suppose this is technically a prequel so I guess they had to do it. The premise is pretty interesting, and addresses a sort of military paranoia that most war movies are too certain to explore, but there is a lot of uniformed men talking around tables so if that's not really your thing, it could get boring pretty…

This is one of John Woo's earlier films so there is no slow motion and not a dove to be seen. I have only seen a couple of these Chinese swordplay films. this one was supposedly near the end of the genre's popularity. Released after audiences were already getting tired of it.
