The film is quite unique and suspenseful at times. It also does have a good cast and Sean Connery gives a strong performance. Overall a good man hunt movie.

By far one of my favorite movies. The facial expression of Sean Connery's face is enough to watch this one. I know it's different from the book, but with the expected slight modifications to fit a movie audience, this is great suspense and action. I watch this one again often.

Satisfyingly tense with little to show in flair and style, replaced by sincerity and sophistication. This, Crimson Tide, and Das Boot make for a de facto trilogy of grandiose, underwater suspense.

Ultimate submarine thriller
September 29, 2017
Almost straight up boring but there's a few redeeming qualities, and they're small.

A bit of an uneven film I thought. The submarine action sequences are great but the whole Alec Baldwin as Jack Ryan as the somewhat comedic CIA guy just didn't work.

Hands down, the best Jack Ryan film that has been made. Great performances all around with an exhilarating plot. Possibly the best film made set during the cold war.

Showing its age. The story is good and interesting but the characters now seem rather stereotyped.

A brilliant Cold War thriller. Some great acting, music and directing.
August 13, 2017
A fast-paced and overall enjoyable movie, though at times a bit difficult to follow. One little bit of dialogue changes the entire direction of the plot. And the dark submarine lighting, coupled with the theatrical trick of making the Russians speak in English (for the audience's benefit), makes it difficult to determine the ship where the current action is taking place (to the audience's detriment). You may have to pause the movie and talk through what's happening with other people. It's good enough that a second viewing to better navigate each plot twist would still be enjoyable.
½ August 3, 2017
An interesting and convoluted film that requires precise attention in order to fully follow. It has some good thrills and keeps you on the edge of your seat

It may lack the special effects at its time but this perhaps maybe one of Tom Clancy's best. Though it could use some more action scenes. Sean Connery was awesome and I can't help but compare Baldwin to Ford. Ford is far better but Baldwin is not that bad. After watching this, it hit me that Crimson Tide was partially base on this thriller.

4/5. Way more exciting than I would have expected a submarine thriller to be.

Story about a Russian submarine commander who wants to defect and take the sub he commands with him. McTiernan directed this after 'Die Hard' proving he wasn't just a flash in the pan. Very good director. One of my favorite spy movies. Such good acting. Connery. Glenn. O'Neil. Baldwin.
June 8, 2017
Tense, intriguing thriller that may seem too plodding for some but Sean Connery and Alec Baldwin make it very watchable indeed.

An interesting movie.
April 26, 2017
One of my top 10 favorite movies. Excellent plot, excellent acting with an all star class of actors. An absolute must see!
April 20, 2017
Entertaining but fairly cheesy, especially the CGI and other effects.
