The film’s cinematography is excellent – well, apart from what appears to me to be a rather poor green screen shot in the final scene. It can’t be easy to film the bulk of a movie within the close quarters of a submarine – granted, the Red October is pretty freakin’ huge for a sub, but it’s still a sub. Director John McTiernan may be known for blowing up everything in sight in Die Hard, but there really are no extravagant special effects in this movie.Read more ›
The basic plot is as follows: Red October is a new and technologically superior Russian submarine and it's heading for the USA under the command of the highly reputed Captain Ramius (Sean Connery). It was created as an undetectable submarine for the purpose of planting bombs/missiles on the USA coast. The Russians soon believe Ramius intends to defect and they send their navy out to sink his submarine. The Russians do not want to reveal the existence of this new submarine to the Americans and tell them that Ramuis has gone mad and intends to fire missiles on the USA. They ask for help locating his submarine. The Americans worry that the Russians are really coming to attack and so they are preparing for war. American CIA analyst Jack Ryan (the lead character from Tom Clancy novels, which this film is based on) is a submarine expert who believes he understands Captain Ramius' motives and can stop a war if he can communicate with the Captain.
The blu-ray looks and sounds excellent, a definite improvement over the DVD. I picked it up for about $8 on Amazon.ca. In terms of special features there's not much: a director's commentary, a theatrical trailer, and a 20-minute documentary on the making of the film which is good but is not remastered and looks rather grainy.Read more ›
