Tom Clancy said that the book Without Remorse began with one basic question: What would happen if an elite warrior like a Navy SEAL declared war on a criminal gang?
That is what happened in the original book- the main character experienced a personal loss when his wife and child were killed in a car accident. He blamed himself for being off fighting a war when his wife and child needed him. So when the woman who managed to make him into a normal man again turned out to have a checkered past, he wanted to help her. The people from her past murdered her and injured him in the process. He declared war on the gang himself and set off on a hunting expedition of his own.
They finally decided to make a movie out of what was an excellent book. And ruined it. First, let’s see what the critics have to say:
Despite a commanding performance from Michael B. Jordan, Without Remorse fails to escape its outdated patriotic tropes and forced franchise place settings.
Wait a minute- patriotism is outdated? Not for some of us. Duty. Honor. Country. Let me quote another movie: “You don’t want the truth because deep down in places you don’t talk about at parties, you want me on that wall — you need me on that wall.
We use words like “honor,” “code,” “loyalty.” We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punch line.”
Patriotism isn’t outdated, you quisling cuckold, so go fuck yourself. I spent the vast majority of my life dedicated to the idea that some things are larger than the individual. First, in the military, then more than two decades running into places that most people avoid at all costs. One thing always guided me in my adult life: “No greater love hath man than he who would die so that others might live.” So anyone who thinks that this is outdated can kiss my ass.
In this movie, the plot of the book is changed. The protagonist’s wife is killed by the Russian military. Then he goes to Russia and seeks revenge. In short, the movie isn’t even close to the book. The only thing this movie has in common with the book are the title and the names of a few characters.
Even then, they screwed it up. Admiral Greer, the head of the CIA’s DI who was so ably played by James Earl Jones, is played by some ghetto looking black chick. She is “Lieutenant Commander Greer” a female Navy SEAL. Yeah.
Did I mention that every white male in the movie is either a bad guy, or is killed in the early parts of the movie?
It would have been closer to the book if Antifa were the bad guys. I would have paid money to see that movie, but this shitty assed Wokefest? No thanks. American movies used to be the best in the world. Now they are just formulaic special effects crap with two dimensional characters that have the depth of a mudpuddle. Still, they screwed this up even worse than they screwed up Patriot Games and Clear and Present Danger.
When was the last time that Hollywood came out with a movie that was worth watching? I couldn’t tell you. I think the real problem with Hollywood is that no one in that liberal cesspool has any idea what Clancy’s target audience values. They have no idea what those of us on the right feel is important.
That is why all of their movies suck.
