The Tom Clancy Techno thrillers have laerlgy been lackluster. Patriot Games and Clear and Present Danger had so many script re writes as it shows in the finished films ( it was like there were three stories in one film). Don't get me started when Ben Affelick played the part (he looked and sounded like the guys he played in Jay and Slient Bob).Now with Chris Pine playing the part (his acting is somewhat wooden), and David Koepp is over paid as a writer. Just about every movie he has written in the last nine years have been big on effects but so little on story. He used to be a better writer then this, but The heck with that now. And as for JJ Abrams Star Trek 2, don't make me puke.
