C.I.A. analyst Jack Ryan must stop the plans of a Neo-Nazi faction that threatens to induce a catastrophic conflict between the United States and Russia's newly elected President by detonating a nuclear weapon at a football game in Baltimore, Maryland.
Ciarán Hinds (President Nemerov) who did not previously speak a word of Russian, learned all of his large chunks of Russian dialogue in two weeks.
In 1973, Egypt and Syria launched a surprise attack against Israel. By Day Two, Israeli ground forces appeared on the verge of defeat. In the event that their ground forces were overrun, an Israeli A-4 jet took off on patrol with one nuclear bomb.
When the President arrives at the football game it is broad daylight. When the President leaves the game and the subsequent explosion occurs it is also broad daylight. The scenes of the actual football game however, are either at night or inside a lighted, dome stadium. A satellite view of the city just prior to the explosion shows only an open air stadium, (which appears to be empty) again in broad daylight. The dark, lighted scenes of the football game do not match any of these other accompanying daylight scenes.
