R.I.P. Tom Clancy.  Always been my favorite author.

Agree with Ferret...Looks watchable, but not exactly in line with the character. Maybe that's just the way the trailer is edited, though. I like all principal parties involves, so I'll probably give it a watch. Anyone else catch the irony of Costner's casting? He was considered for the Ryan role in The Hunt for Red October back in the day.

Darn it, I agree with wiseguy again.  Baldwin was my favorite too, and I am a huge Ford Fan.  well I mean I'm not Huge.  I'm like 185 pounds and I'm 6 foot tall.  But I really like ford as an actor.

 New blu-ray box set of the previous 4 coming soon to a Target near you. 

Help the rubes realize the character has cred. But there are no rubes here.

 Ummm... NO!  Jack Ryan is NOT an action hero!  He's not a field agent!  The guy is supposed to be an intel analyst ONLY.  That's why he's so wonderfully out of place in books like Hunt for Red October and Clear and Present Danger!!!  This is just wrong.

I'm a huge fan of Ford, and Tom Clancy is (was) my favourite author. MAY HE REST IN PEACE!!!

IMO, the movie sounds pretty similiar to Clancy's last book THREAT VECTOR. Substitiute Chinese for Russians, add a younger Jack Ryan, and you have this movie.

I'm looking forward to seeing it...it can't be any worse than SUM OF ALL FEARS. What a dis-service it did to the book.

But I'm looking forward to the next Clancy book (and unfortunately last) December 3.

Ford's portrayal of Ryan was probably the best Ryan, and the closest Ryan to the books. Just an average guy who happens to be an analyst for the CIA, who is put into a situation that he doesn't want to be in. Baldwin's Ryan was too "confident" and "sure of himself" which wasn't Ryan from the books.
