      @skywise Oh no it wasn't sarcasm, I mean I really do like it. The Hunt for Red October and all the other ones I know are better story but they are also somewhat older. Fears had Freeman and that awesome nuke scene. I will watch the movie just for that. I loved that story. Now Affleck is not the best actor, and I admit I believe he has limited range, but I'll take him in that film. He's not the reason I watch it, so yeah.

        @comicbookfan Is that sarcasm? Or did you really like that Ryan film the best?

        I have to admit that when the nuke went off it was pretty awesome.

          Though I do think that Chris Pine and Kiera Knightley are going to make a good duo.

            @rufio Hell yeah! The Sum of All Fears was my favorite Jack Ryan film. That nuke blast was so crazy when it blew out the window glass.

              And God, I mean Morgan Freeman, will never hurt for work. But yeah, good pair up.
