One of the most delectably taut, racing thrillers of its generation.
| Original Score: 8/10
The first Jack Ryan thriller adventure is a supremely mounted film, well acted by Alec Baldwin and Sean Connery, and vastly enjoyable.
| Original Score: A-
| Original Score: B
It is a thriller in some sequences, action in others, but it depends on personal taste, how many thrills you believe a movie should have in order to be considered a thriller
As for the film's suspense credentials, you know it's time to get tense when James Earl Jones intones, 'Mother of God.' [Blu-Ray]
| Original Score: 3.5/4

The Soviet captain has a brogue. I'm okay with it. Sue me.
| Original Score: 4/5
For all its flaws, it still holds water.
| Original Score: 5/5
Exciting submarine adventure w/Connery, Baldwin
Regressive old-fashioned thriller of a sort that mostly died out 20 years earlier.
Delivers its share of honest to goodness thrills.
Solid if somewhat staid adaptation of the Clancy book.
Politics aside, however, The Hunt for Red October is a thrilling edge-of-your-seat trifle that has admirably withstood the test of time.
