Bought this and K-19 The Widowmaker at the same time. K-19 The Widowmaker is based on a true story about a Russian nuclear sub that malfunctions. Being based on a true story K-19 is more realistic and grittier than Red October. Even though Red October has more name actors and good special effects, it's based on a novel and lacks the plausibility of a true story.

Harrison Ford plays the Russian commander in K19 and plays a more convincing role. The Russian commander in Red October is played by Sean Connery who plays Sean Connery, basically the same character he plays in every movie. Listening to Connery English/Scottish accent trying to emulate a Russian accent is kind of humorous. Same with Same Neill. Baldwin does his typical manic style of acting, which I usually like, but seems a bit over the top in this movie.

Red October clearly had a bigger budget than K19, but K19 did more with what they had. I would call Red October more of a Popcorn style of adventure movie, meaning enough action, sets, special effects, middling suspense and adequate acting for its 135 minutes length. After all any movie that has Tim Curry playing a Russian doctor, pretty well tells you the level of drama the studio was aiming for. It was enjoyable for what it was but it's not likely that I'll watch this one a second time.

While I usually try to avoid all things Baldwin, this film is just way too good to miss. It’s hard to imagine a more compelling storyline, which centers on a preeminent Soviet submarine captain going rogue with the shiniest new toy in the Soviet arsenal – the Red October, a new Typhoon class submarine designed for the purpose of sneaking past US defenses and delivering a devastating first strike in any war between the two Cold War adversaries. No one knows what this captain is going to do – not the Soviets and not the Americans. Obviously, the greatest and most likely outcome is an attack on the eastern US that would initiate World War III. At the same time, however, there is also the possibility that Captain Marko Ramius (Sean Connery) might be trying to defect. Neither outcome is palatable to the Soviet regime, so they send the bulk of their fleet toward the North Atlantic to find and destroy the Red October. For the Americans, though, it’s not so simple. Only one thing is clear – they have to find the sub before it penetrates America’s coastal defenses and figure out what Captain Ramius is planning to do. That’s where CIA analyst Jack Ryan (Alec Baldwin) comes in.

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.

Based on Tom Clancy's 1984 novel of the same title, "The Hunt for Red October" is the first Jack Ryan adventure on film. Although I like Harrison Ford better in the role of Jack Ryan than either Alec Baldwin or Ben Affleck, "Red October" is the best of the Ryan films partly because of the script, but largely because of the ensemble cast including Scott Glenn, Sam Neill, Tim Curry, James Earl Jones and, of course, Sean Connery as Captain Marko Ramius, the Lithuanian-born commanding officer on the Soviet nuclear submarine Red October who seeks to defect to the United States. Tension builds as Ramius and the Red October move closer to U.S. waters with the Soviet Navy in pursuit and U.S. forces unsure of Ramius' true intentions. "The Hunt for Red October" is a taut thriller, an excellent movie based on a modern masterpiece of a novel, and I fully recommend it.

The movie is an excellent one! Superb acting by Sean Connery and Alec Baldwin. During most of the movie, you are drawn in suspense at what's going to happen and the outcome to the Red October. Unfortunately, I opened my package to see a crack on the back of the dvd case.

this is a very well done and engaging political thriller.it's base on an event which may or may not have occurred in 1984.it's about a rogue Russian Submarine that has disappeared and may be headed toward American territory.the question is,why?both the Russians and the U.S are hunting the sub and have their own reasons for doing so.but time is of the essence.the movie is basically a psychological suspense thriller.this isn't what i would call a nail biting movie,though it does has its moments.it's more of a character study,of one man in particular,the commander of the Russian sub.the last 30 minutes or so are quite tense and down to the wire.the whole movie is highly dramatic but not at all boring,thanks to good writing and directing.Larry Ferguson and Donald Stewart co wrote the screenplay from a novel by Tom Clancy.John McTiernan of Die Hard fame directed.this is an intelligent,thought provoking thriller and i would highly recommend it.you might also want to check out U571 and Crimson Tide
