CONNERY BETTER THAN BOND?
on 6 April 2017
I found this 130 min REGION B/2 DVD highly entertaining and very engrossing and am sure that it will keep most viewers on the edge of their seats. It's a very intense film but nothing serious.
Based on Tom Clancy's bestseller, directed by John McTiernan and starring Sean Connery and Alex 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 (Sean Connery) The American government thinks Ramius is planning to attack. A lone CIA analyst (Alex 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 as the entire Russian naval and air commanders are trying to find him too.
