I just finished watching Red October. Man, that is a great movie. Now that's how you do a Tom Clancy movie. Even though the movie isn't jammed packed with action, every scene is great. There's tension and drama and everything feels important and edge of your seat.
One of my favorite movies of all time! On scene that really conveys the tension and drama for me really well is when the damaged fighter tries to land on the carrier and fails. You see the fighter crashing and burning while the admiral explains how trigger nervous both sides are. You really get a "oh shit, we are this close to WW3" feeling from the scene.
