We’ve come to the final film of Nautical Month: The Hunt for Red October directed by John McTiernan.
This submarine spy thriller from the early 90s is a solid, enjoyable movie. It’s always clear exactly what is happening, which is not an easy feat for a plot this complex. There are also some really good performances, especially from Sean Connery and James Earl Jones. Our biggest complaint is with the handling of the main character, Jack Ryan - played by a rather hammy Alec Baldwin.
