The Hunt for Red October Review

11 June 2009
  • Excerpt: The first in a line of Tom Clancy/Jack Ryan book-to-film adaptations, The Hunt for Red October is a suspense thriller. It’s loaded with a fantastic story, developed characters, solid all around effects, and an ending that doesn’t let up. While it may not stand as the greatest submarine movie ever created, it’s a fine piece of claustrophobic filmmaking.

The Hunt for Red October on Blu-ray Disc Review

31 July 2008
  • Excerpt: The Film Released at a time when The Reagan Era and The Cold War were still in recent memory, The Hunt for Red October was the first big-screen adaptation of the works of author Tom Clancy, a great storyteller with a knack for knowing government/military secrets he really shouldn't. October 's success of course led to three more movies, and the Clancy brand would eventually extend to videogames and more.

  • Conclusion: ’The Hunt for Red October’ isn’t just one of my personal favorites, it’s widely considered one of the best submarine flicks of all time. McTiernan has created a classic that boasts a tight script, a great story, and a horde of outstanding performances. Thankfully, its highly anticipated Blu-ray debut features a faithful, eye-pleasing video transfer and an immersive, engaging TrueHD audio track.

The Hunt For Red October Blu-ray Review

24 July 2008
  • Conclusion: The Hunt For Red October is the best of the Jack Ryan films, and a classic in its own right. With arguably the best performance of Alec Baldwin's career, one of the better efforts from Sean Connery, and an all-star cast performing under the rock-solid direction of John McTiernan, The Hunt For Red October is a seminal submarine movie and one of the finer films to come out of the 1990s.
