--> Why, you may take the most gallant sailor, the most intrepid airman or the most audacious soldier, put them at a table together - what do you get? [[TitleDrop The sum of their fears]].
-->--'''The book's preface, quoting WinstonChurchill.'''


'''''The Sum of All Fears''''' is a best-selling thriller novel by TomClancy, and part of the Jack Ryan series. It was the fourth book of the series to be turned into a film. An interesting historical note is that this book was released just days before the Moscow uprising in 1991, which finally signaled the dissolution of the Soviet Union. Russian politics in the aftermath of the destruction of the Berlin Wall is a main element of the book.

The title is based on an anecdote recounted in the foreword: when you get a group of already hostile people together, their fears are amplified, to the point where the slightest misstep can set them on a course for war.

The basic plot centers around a rogue nuclear bomb being developed by a terrorist organization and detonated in an American city to incite mistrust between the United States and Russia to the point of open war. Ryan and his network of friends on both sides rush to track down the actual group responsible before the nuclear option becomes real.

The movie stars Ben Affleck and Morgan Freeman, and is notable for changing the villains from Arab terrorists to Neo-Nazis while forwarding the timeline to 2003. It re-envisioned Jack Ryan as a young analyst in a form of ContinuityReboot[=/=]{{Prequel}} from the previous movies, and has him dealing with his first foray into the real inner workings of the CIA.
----
!!The book contains the following tropes:

* BavarianFireDrill: The terrorists impersonate TV network service personnel to [[spoiler:get their bomb (disguised as a commercial VCR) into the Denver Skydome]]. Their German terrorist accomplices [[spoiler:get onto a Soviet army base in East Germany by donning Soviet officer uniforms, and pretending to be there for a surprise inspection]].
* BodyMotifs: A rather odd one, given the book's subject. If a female character pops up at any point, her naked breasts will be described or referenced.
* DeathEqualsRedemption: While not exactly a villain in this case, Harry Ricks apologizes to his XO for the way he commanded ''USS Maine'' shortly before [[spoiler:they're hit by one of ''Admiral Lunin'''s torpedoes]]. Thankfully, it ends better for most of the rest of the crew.
* DidTheEarthMoveForYouToo: A throwaway joke made when the terrorists are digging up [[spoiler:an unexploded nuclear bomb.]]
* DisproportionateRetribution: A sizable portion of the novel consists of Elliot trying to ruin Ryan's career and marriage because he objected to ''her'' bad manners in ''Clear and Present Danger''. It makes more sense when you figure out that she's a petty, vindictive bitch.
* {{Expy}}: Bob Fowler and Elizabeth Elliot make a good [[Literature/TheBible Ahab And Jezebel]] allegory. On his own, when he listens to competent advice and doesn't have a PoisonousFriend whispering in his ear, he's still somewhat arrogant and out of his depth, but can be a halfway decent ReasonableAuthorityFigure. Unfortunately, Elliot does her best to corrupt him into being as venal, paranoid, and selfish as she is, and his nobler qualities greatly suffer as a result.
* FalseFlagOperation: The terrorists' plan in the event of their capture is to implicate Iran in the bombing, the idea being that if the U.S. were to respond in kind, by nuking Iran, the Muslim world would rise up against America.
* TheGreatPoliticsMessUp: The novel was written prior to the collapse of the Soviet Union, but set chronologically afterwards. Oops. Though [[spoiler:Narmonov]] is pretty clearly written as a Gorbachev expy. It isn't so much a matter of assuming that the USSR would continue, but not being able to predict exactly how it would fall apart.
* HeroicBSOD: Jack Ryan experiences a drawn-out, stress-induced breakdown - one of the few times in the series that he has not been up to the task at hand. This is due to finding himself working for a hostile administration without much in the way of support.
* HotLine: Played realistically in that instead of the stereotypical "red phone" with national leaders directly conversing, it's a teletype connection with translators on both ends. Using this form of communication [[spoiler:causes the U.S. and the Soviet Union to edge closer to nuclear war because the U.S. President, after hearing reports of a possible coup d'état in the Soviet Union, believes he's talking to someone other than the Soviet Premier.]]
* ItsForABook: While doing the research for the novel, Clancy was able to get the specifications for all the machinery needed to build a nuclear bomb delivered to his doorstep. He then pointed out in his author's notes that it's all commercially available within the U.S.
* JackBauerInterrogationTechnique: John Clark uses this; also a case of MutilationInterrogation by way of {{Fingore}}. It fails in that the badguys were planning all along to lie under interrogation to [[FalseFlagOperation falsely implicate]] Iran in their bomb plot.
* {{Jerkass}}: Harry Ricks, newly minted commander of ''USS Maine'', is a hardcase engineer with a bad case of MilesGloriosus when it comes to actual command. Elizabeth Elliot, Fowler's National Security Adviser, is worse, attempting to ruin Ryan's life on the basis of a petty vendetta and driving Fowler to the brink of nuclear war through sheer paranoia.
* LifeImitatesArt: It's mentioned that local wags near the [[PeaceThroughSuperiorFirepower Strategic Air Command]] HQ joked that the relatively new (at the time) Command Center was made so that the actual place matched up with the common Hollywood depictions of the facility, which were better than the original structure.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: Both Fowler and Elliot go into full BSOD mode when they realize how close they came to starting WorldWarThree. Fowler resigns his presidency immediately afterwards and Elliot gets taken to a mental hospital.
* RichBitch: Elizabeth Elliot, made worse because of her relationship with President Fowler. She becomes his most trusted advisor but her paranoid insecurity causes her to lead him to the brink of nuclear war. She has a full on breakdown afterwards.
* SuperBowl: Where the terrorists plan to detonate their nuclear bomb.
* TortureAlwaysWorks: Subverted. The terrorists [[FalseFlagOperation lie about who]] their backer is, when they are subjected to torture. They had intended to do this all along.
* WesternTerrorists: The Warrior Society.
* WillingSuspensionOfDisbelief: Lampshaded by various characters, who find it hard to do this over the sweeping political changes that drive the conflicts of the book.
* XanatosGambit: The terrorists' plan has multiple outcomes, all of which work to their benefit. If U.S. blames the Soviet Union for the nuke, it's WorldWarThree. If not, they've still killed a lot of people. If they get away, great; if not, they've got a FalseFlagOperation set up to implicate Iran.
* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: Subverted. [[spoiler:The nuclear scientist ''hadn't'' actually finished the bomb yet. Because of that, the nuke's yield is significantly lessened, and provides the vital clue that keeps the US from launching its arsenal at Russia]]. Played straight with the terrorists' U.S. accomplice, whom they murder once the bomb is planted.
** Played straight when they kill their American helper. The fact that his corpse is as close as it is to the stadium (and not completely charred) is one of the clues that tells them that this isn't a Soviet bomb.
* YourDaysAreNumbered: Qati, the leader of the terrorist group, is dying of cancer. He views the bomb plot as his [[TheLastDance last chance]] to strike a devastating blow against America. His cancer meds are a ChekhovsGun that clue Clark into seeing through the FalseFlagOperation.
----
!!The movie contains the following tropes:

* ArtisticLicenseMilitary: A sneak attack against an American carrier in the North Atlantic is not an easy feat. In a real life scenario the bombers would be detected from a great distance by early warning systems and there would be patrol craft on station to intercept. The mandatory and numerous carrier escorts would provide a SAM screen and a MacrossMissileMassacre much more intense than the one shown in the movie would be needed to penetrate it.
* DangerRoomColdOpen: The DEFCON 1 situation at the beginning [[ThisIsNotADrill is a drill]].
* {{Expy}}: {{CIA}} director William Cabot is a similar substitute for Admiral Greer from ''The Hunt for Red October''; both are African-American {{ReasonableAuthorityFigure}}s with high clearance who introduce Ryan into decision-making circles. Cabot is more [[CynicalMentor cynical]].
* ExternalCombustion: Subverted. Dressler is GenreSavvy enough to have his bodyguard start the car first, and the poor guy obviously knows why. This is why the assassin wires the bomb into the cigarette lighter in the back seat, since Dressler is a chain smoker.
* MakeTheBearAngryAgain
* MythologyGag[=/=]ContinuityCameo: The [[AdaptationExpansion absent in the novel]] Tupoloev Backfire attack on the U.S. carrier is transplanted from Clancy's ''RedStormRising'', which technically is not part of the Ryanverse.
* PrecisionFStrike: Given the movie's rating, the one use of the F-Bomb is given to the President, in the aftermath of the attack on Baltimore. Discussed in the DVD commentary, where the original cut had two, and given that they could only keep one in a PG-13 movie, they decided to let the President use it.
* ResignationsNotAccepted: One of the conspirators disagrees with the neo-Nazi murderous plan and attempts a gentleman's exit. He soon learns it is not an option.
* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: In the film's finale, all of the major conspirators are discreetly hunted down and assassinated by Russian and American agents.
* SceneryGorn: Only lightly played - after [[spoiler:Baltimore is nuked, the only long shot we see is of a mushroom cloud rising through the dusty fog kicked up by the shockwave]]. The explosion itself is mostly seen from the ground or helicopter level. But there are a number of scenes in the outskirts where generic streets are on fire, emergency vehicles are flying around, and chaos generally reigns.
* ShoutOut: Russian President Nemirov's speech, at the end, is taken from one [[JohnFKennedy JFK]] speech. The one heard at the beginning of ''Film/{{JFK}}''.
* SuperHeroOrigin: Of a sort. The movie opts to show Ryan being brought along high-end CIA meetings because he had written a paper on the newest Russian President a few years previously (correctly guessing he would be the next in line). Cabot then takes on a mentor role as Ryan is very unnerved by all the expectations placed on him, gradually starting to take his first steps as a real CIA power player.
* TakeAThirdOption: The Secretary of Defense wants to NukeEm, the Secretary of State says it's "not reasonable!". A few minutes later, they agree to a conventional attack on the airbase that launched the attack on the carrier.
* ThoseWackyNazis: The villains. Here, they are noticeably all successful businessmen and politicians.

* YouFailNuclearPhysicsForever: Clancy does say in the afterword that he "fudged a few details" to stop anyone using the book as a build-your-own-nuke instruction manual. It would be more accurate to say that he's messed it up so much that the entire section becomes ludicrous. Reading it becomes a matter of going "that's wrong... that's wrong... that's a different kind of nuke... that's just silly..." So many bits are blatantly false that [[WillingSuspensionOfDisbelief]] becomes impossible.
