The Hunt For Red October

Homework - September 7, 2020

Based on the Tom Clancy novel, this is first movie in the Jack Ryan series (Patriot Games, Clear and Present Danger, The Sum of All Fears, Shadow Recruit, Amazon Prime Series).

The cast is outstanding: Sean Connery, Alec Baldwin, Scott Glenn, Sam Neill, James Earl Jones, Stellan Skarsgård, and Tim Curry.

The director is the master of action, John McTiernan. His resume includes Predator, Die Hard, The 13th Warrior, and Last Action Hero.

The Hunt for Red October handles drama and action perfectly, the casting is amazing, the music is an outstanding complement, and the film holds up after several rewatches. Alec Baldwin doing his best Sean Connery impression never gets old.

Currently on Netflix and Prime Video in Canada and Fubo and Showtime in the US, this is one hunt you’ll want to make.
