A new technologically superior Soviet nuclear sub, the Red October, is heading the the United States coast under the command of Captian Ramius. The American government thinks Ramius is planning to attack. A lone CIA analyst has a different idea: he thinks Ramius is planning to defect, but he has only a few hours to find him and prove it. At the same time, the entire Russian naval and air commands are trying to find Ramius too.

Connery nails his portrayal of Captain Raimius in this excellent adaptation of Tom Clancy's finest military thriller. Everything about this movie is pitch perfect, and if you are a fan of the novel, you will not walk away feeling like you have been cheated out of any of Clancy's excellent technical research or intricate plot.

Great movie! Sean Connery suits the role perfectly, great performances all around, and brilliant soundtrack.

A fantastic, suspenseful movie with strong characters and great dialogue. The one unfortunate aspect that takes away my fifth star is the amount of profanity in it. You don't need to misuse Christ's name in order to have a popular movie.

"Star Wars", but underwater, with extraordinary performances from everyone, most notably Alec Baldwin, who holds his own against an ever formidable Sean Connery - great fun, however riddled with political inconsistencies, not to mention fanciful heroic improbabilities

Great period movie with ensemble cast.
Nice to have a story instead of special effects running the movie.

Alec Baldwin at his best. It was his star making role, but he never quite lived up to this performance again. Scott Glenn did a remarkable job in an utterly thankless role as a straight laced sub commander against James Bond. But he feels like a real sub commander and how naval officers would be. He didn't overreact to situation and never raised his voice. Such an underrated actor. I only wish there were a lot more extras, but the little mini-documentary added some interesting information. There's just something about a claustrophobic submarine movie. Maybe it's the fact you can't just step outside. You're trapped in a tin can underwater. But of all of the sub movies, this is the best.

Still a great and suspenseful movie, and one which gives "Shhean" Connery an opportunity to show he's a great actor as well as a screen presence. Alec Baldwin is great too because he hadn't figured out how to be Alec Baldwin yet.

"This is most unnerving Captain!"
"Why"
"The reason for having two keys is so that no...one man...may…"
"May what, Doctor?"
May ARM the missiles, Captain"
