Jack Ryan fans take note: It's almost time to watch Tom Clancy's Without Remorse, which begins streaming online on Amazon Prime Video on April 30. Without Remorse is a feature-film spinoff from the Jack Ryan franchise and tells the origin story of John Clark (Michael B. Jordan), a fan-favorite character in Clancy's books.
But before he's John Clark, he's John Kelly in the movie, which starts with the Navy SEAL successfully leading a top-secret op against former Russian soldiers. In retaliation, the group murders his pregnant wife and Kelly vows to avenge her.

Tom Clancy's Without Remorse reviews
The reviews of Tom Clancy's Without Remorse are mixed. Here's a round-up of what movie critics are saying.
At our sister site, CinemaBlend (opens in new tab), Eric Eisenberg says, "It likely won’t be remembered as the best action blockbuster of 2021, its impressive cinematic qualities somewhat muted by the usage of overused plot devices, but it is a thrilling experience and a spotlight for some great talent."
David Rooney of The Hollywood Reporter (opens in new tab) writes, "The result is a solid entry in the Clancy screen canon — gritty, briskly paced, laced with vigorously choreographed fight scenes, explosive weapons action and twisty political intrigue ... It doesn't reinvent the genre, but nor does it try to fix what's not broken, which should work just fine for Clancy's legions of readers."
Variety's (opens in new tab) Owen Gleiberman calls the movie "a lively formulaic action-hero origin story, dunked in combat grunge, that demonstrates how a resourceful lead actor can bend and heighten the meaning of a commercial thriller."
At IGN (opens in new tab), Zaki Hasan says, "Even as Tom Clancy’s Without Remorse goes through some familiar paces, it’s elevated by the presence at its center of star/producer Michael B. Jordan. The actor’s physicality and intensity, previously on display in Creed, Black Panther, and Just Mercy, serve him well here as the former Special Forces soldier-turned-CIA operative."
And in the New York Times (opens in new tab), Ben Kenisberg writes that "most of Without Remorse is surprisingly dull, more concerned with laying franchise groundwork than with being exciting on its own terms. Jordan makes a sturdy enough action hero, but the character as portrayed doesn’t give him any contours to play."
