Very satisfying dumb guy movie where neo-fascists use an Israeli nuke flatten to Baltimore, killing all your favorite characters from "The Wire." McNutty, Herc, Carver, Bunk, Omar, Bubbles, Prop Joe, they're all dead now.
This is probably the most purely "Tom Clancy" of all the film adaptations of his work. Despite swapping out the Arab terrorists of the book with a cabal of fascist academics, this still lets him indulge his primary fetish: portraying Russia as a country of dim, back-stabbing clowns and getting off imagining the US *almost* engaging in a nuclear exchange with them.
There's also a funny part towards the end where Jack Ryan is begging someone at the Pentagon to let him do his job as a CIA analyst, which he describes "getting the right information to the people in power" who would make the right choice if only they knew what he does. This movie came out in 2002 lol.
