A sweaty Ben Affleck - sure to get hearts fluttering around the cinema

A sweaty Ben Affleck is sure to get hearts fluttering
Does Sum add up?

Ben Affleck moves into thrillers to bring Tom Clancy's hero Jack Ryan to life. Can he step into Harrison Ford's shoes?

In this high-intensity drama, based on the novel by Tom Clancy, Ben Affleck stars as CIA agent Jack Ryan.

The agent has appeared in Clancy's other stories: The Hunt for Red October, Patriot Games, and Clear and Present Danger (twice with Harrison Ford playing the role).

Here, Ryan is dealing with a terrifying new problem: a nuclear weapon has fallen into the hands of foreign terrorists who are determined to create a war between Russia and the U.S.

As the film begins, a South African arms dealer (Colm Feore) acquires a long-lost nuclear weapon and sells it, at great profit, to a resurgent group of fascists, who plan to lure the U.S. and Russia into a war.

Soon after, the Russian premiere dies and the relatively unknown new leader replaces him. But the U.S. president smells a rat, and calls the CIA chief, William Cabot (Morgan Freeman), and special agent Jack Ryan (Affleck), the junior analyst who has been researching the new Russian leader, are called into action.

And Affleck's pedigree as a romantic lead is also used to full effect...there's a major love story that runs alongside the action.
