Oh, the one saving grace from "Sum" was Liev Shreiber or whatever his name is... John Clark is just *the* badass.
A bad ass who needs a flashlight to get from an inflatable boat to an abandoned weapons lab? The real John Clark wouldn't need a fucking flashlight. That's probably what pissed me off most about the Sum of All Fears. That, Ben Affleck and the complete removal of all excitement from the opening of the movie.
I actually liked Clear and Present Danger the movie quite a bit, and yes I have read the book. It certainly deviated from the book quite a bit but you have to if you're going to squeeze 850 pages into two hours.
