A new, technologically-superior Soviet sub, the Red October, is heading for the U.S. coast under the command of Captain Marko Ramius. The American government thinks Ramius is planning to attack. A lone CIA analyst has a different idea: he thinks Ramius is planning to defect, but he has only a few hours to find him and prove it — because the entire Russian naval and air commands are trying to find him, too.

Stellar performances by Sean Connery and Alex Baldwin with a minor but we'll played role by the voice himself, James Earl Jones. Cold war epic, with great ocean scenes in horrendous weather portray the bleakness of life aboard a submarine. Tense moments build craftfully to an well thought out conclusion.
