more details

A contemplative thriller by early 1990s standards, The Hunt For Red October was the first movie based on the successful Jack Ryan novels of Tom Clancy. Robbed of much of the book's Cold War appeal by the time of its release, the movie was nonetheless embraced by American audiences; it was among the ten highest-grossing movies of 1990. It would be director John McTiernan's third major action hit following Predator and Die Hard, and he manages to maintain a high excitement level for the film's 134-minute length. Ultimately, Red October's success might have been due to the ****** appeal of stars Alec Baldwin and Sean Connery. This would be Baldwin's first big-budget hit; for Connery, it continued the career upswing that had begun with The Name of the Rose and The Untouchables. Baldwin declined to reprise the Ryan role; Harrison Ford would play the character in Patriot Games and Clear and Present Danger. Brendon Hanley, All Movie Guide
