THE HUNT FOR RED OCTOBER (Theatrical Release USA 1990)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.8|5.0 Starsìììì

Hunt for Red October—
based on a Tom Clancy novel—classes itself as a piece of WOW! entertainment from the first scene. It’s a classic film, sporting an all-star cast, that belongs in the home video library and can easily be re-watched through the years. Great work by Director John McTiernan, director of Predator, Die Hard, Last Action Hero.
