Amazon Prime’s Without Remorse was a serviceable action flick held together by Michael B. Jordan playing Navy SEAL John Clark. Or more like Michael B. Jordan playing Michael B. Jordan.
But it is NOTHING like the original Tom Clancy book that fans loved. Fans of the book may even hate it for the dumbed-down cliched plot that you could see from a mile away.
And the movie is so obviously trying to set up a Rainbow Six franchise as well.
I would watch this as an action movie but not as a Tom Clancy movie. I doubt we will get anything better than The Hunt for Red October.
The problem with Tom Clancy books is the sheer amount of detail in them, and perhaps the stories are better told in a tv series format than a movie.
I thought the Amazon Prime Jack Ryan series, at least for season 1, captured the feel and tone of Tom Clancy's legacy even if they updated the plot. But so far, very few movies have done his books justice.
