The Russian submarine Captain, Marko Ramius (Sir Sean Connery), defects. His goal is taking it to the U.S. to prevent the Russians from using it to start nuclear war against the U.S.
Plot: Based on Tom Clancy’s bestseller, directed by John McTiernan (Die Hard) and starring Sean Connery and Alec Baldwin, The Hunt For Red October seethes with high-tech excitement and sweats with the tension of men who hold Doomsday in their hands. A new technologically-superior Soviet nuclear sub, the Red October, is heading for the U.S. coast under the command of Captain Marko Ramius (Connery). The American government thinks Ramius is planning to attack. A lone CIA analyst (Baldwin) has a different idea: he thinks Ramius is planning to defect, but he has only a few hours to find him and prove it – because the entire Russian naval and air commands are trying to find him, too. The hunt is on!

The captain of all submarine movies
Because of the intrigue this film offers, the circumstances involved tie up neatly in a very convincing way. Needing all of the variables to fall into place if his defection hopes to be successful, Soviet (although Lithuanian by birth) submarine Captain Ramius (Sean Connery) is a very worthy submarine captain. Never cracking under pressure and carrying out his duty professionally, Ramius is the perfect ally to the west in keeping the balance between the super powers in their military endeavours.
Alec Baldwin is good as Jack Ryan. I wish he had stayed on as this character in ‘Patriot Games’ and ‘Clear and Present Danger’, because although I like Harrison Ford better as a movie star/actor, Baldwin just seemed better for this role. Too bad he left.
Director John McTiernan uses a smooth pace and lets the screenplay speak louder than his role as the man in charge of it all and the film’s photography is tense along with the editing and sound. An Oscar winner for sound effects editing, ‘The Hunt for Red October’ will put a submarine in your living room if you have the DVD 5.1. surround sound. It’s positively realistic!
Seen it 8 times — and it never gets old
Let’s talk about some of the things that make a movie a classic.
Acting? Check. Just look at the stars.
Script? Check. Based on book by Clancy back when people read books (and dinosaurs walked) and Clancy OWNED his niche.
Cinematography? Direction? That it takes place on a sub means it is distinctive and memorable from the getgo. Something about the claustrophobia of a submarine reflected in the claustrophobia of a movie theatre.
Most of important of all is the pacing. There are few films that I have seen this many times and the reason is that the story builds so beautifully. With such a great payoff. Story telling at its finest. So tricks, so attempt to sucker punch the viewer, not even any pretty girls to distract from the weak scenes. Because there are none.
A classic. And under-rated.
