About the Film
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 Russion naval and air commands are trying to find him, too. The hunt is on!
You can't argue with a Scottish-Russian accent. Great film.
A great movie that is part of a great series
This film has one of my favourite scenes of all movies. There is a point where the Sean Connery and his Executive Officer are talking russian, the camera zooms in slowly where the language changes from Russian to enlish mid sentence. From that point onwards they are all speaking english and the camera zooms out again to carry on. I just thought it was a really clever and no n-obtrusive way of manging the change to the english language for a Russian submarine crew.
Thank you Itunes for bring such a fantastic movie to the portable world!! This film is so aborbing that any journey you are on will fly by!!! excellent!
