The hero of countless Tom Clancy novels, Jack Ryan has appeared in five films and one television series – and two of those films also featured his rougher, tougher associate, John Clark. Now Clark gets a film of his own, courtesy of Stefano Sollima and Taylor Sheridan, a director and screenwriter who worked together on Sicario: Day of the Soldado. Michael B Jordan (Creed, Black Panther) plays the former Navy SEAL who goes on a Liam Neeson in Taken-style roaring rampage of revenge when his pregnant wife is murdered by Russian soldiers. Adapted from Clancy’s 1993 bestseller, Without Remorse co-stars Jamie Bell as a CIA agent and Jodie Turner-Smith as a fellow SEAL. It is due to be followed by a second thriller, Rainbow Six, in which Clark still doesn’t have any remorse.
Released on Amazon Prime from 30 April
