TOM CLANCY’S WITHOUT REMORSE (2021): The Things I Liked…

I had a feeling that Tom Clancy’s Without Remorse wouldn’t be completely terrible; simply because of some of the key talent involved.

The likes of Michael B. Jordan, Jamie Bell and Guy Pierce can often be relied upon to deliver watchable performances. Nevertheless, I can’t deny that director Stefano Sollima’s movie could do with some improvements..

I tuned in because the idea of Jordan as a Navy Seal on a vengeance mission was very appealing. And things became especially exciting and suspenseful after the thirty-minute mark, when Jordan’s John Clark was officially in badass mode.

These were the moments that Without Remorse proved most exciting for me; during the action/suspenseful sequences. I particularly enjoyed a scene inside a prison cell that’s very reminiscent of a key moment in Jack O’Connell and Ben Mendelsohn’s Starred Up (2014), a prison movie I highly recommend. 

For seasoned film fanatics such as myself, though well executed in parts, I found a fair amount of what took place in Sollima’s Without Remorse relatively cliche’d. As impressive and fun to watch as the action scenes are, I wish that the whole movie felt more polished throughout. And certainly less like a Netflix/Amazon movie that didn’t quite meet its potential.

It is for these reasons, plus the moment or two of dialogue that didn’t sit so comfortably in my ears, and Jodie Turner Smith’s character seeming almost too young to be Clark’s superior that I have to say… only if you’re supercurious, then give Tom Clancy’s Without Remorse a chance.

TOM CLANCY’S WITHOUT REMORSE (2021): New Trailer Starring Michael B. Jordan, Jodie Turner-Smith, Jamie Bell, Guy Pearce…

Tom Clancy’s Without Remorse stars Michael B. Jordan as John Clark, a Navy SEAL who sets off on a personal mission to avenge his wife’s murder, only to find himself inside of a larger conspiracy. 

Directed by Stefano Sollima; additional key cast includes Lauren London, Jodie Turner-Smith, Jamie Bell and Guy Pearce.

I say bring on the well-choreographed fight/combat sequences. I’m more that ready to see Jordan believably portraying a Navy SEAL. I’m also ready to hear him say ‘No remorse‘ about one hundred more times.

Jacob Scipio, Todd Lasance, Jack Kesy, Lucy Russell, Cam Gigandet, Luke Mitchell, Artjom Gilz, Brett Gelman, Merab Ninidze and Alexander Mercury also star.

Tom Clancy’s Without Remorse Release Dates: April 30th, 2021, Amazon Prime Video
