Movie Review: Without Remorse

Published

on

Yesterday, Amazon released the long awaited film, “Without Remorse“.

A little background about this movie. Plans to shoot this movie started back in the 90s. Some of the biggest action movie heavy hitters have been attached to this movie in some way shape or form. People like Keanu Reeves, Laurence Fishburne, and Gary Sinise. For years, nothing happened with this movie, until 2012 when Tom Hardy and Kevin Costner were tied to the movie. Then in 2018 Michael B. Jordan was announced as the lead role, and would star in a two part series, Without Remorse and Rainbow Six. The film was shot from October 2019 – October 2020. Due to the pandemic there were breaks in filming of course.

Now about the movie! I’ll say this movie, for me, was refreshing. Does Hollywood have any idea how tired people are of all these black lead movies revolving around racism and slavery? Like yeah, we get it, there are stories to be told, and they should be. But every once in a while, we do enjoy just seeing shit get blown the fuck up! We showed out in record breaking numbers to see Black Panther, because for once it was just great black cinema that doesn’t remind us of the world we live in every day. Coincidentally, Michael B Jordan was in there too.

Although, Michael did a great job acting, the movie is still pretty bland overall. It’s more of a feel good, something to look at type of movie, and less of a blockbuster. In other words, if I had to pay to see this in the theaters, I’m not sure I would be ok with giving them my money. Being that it’s on streaming services, I am ok with it, although I do believe it would have done good in the box office. I just think the material was a little predictable and

I must also note that I was really happy to see Jodie Turner-Smith. It took me a minute to realize why she seemed so familiar, then in one random frame it hit me… that’s “Queen” from Queen & Slim. This melanin and dynamic between the two characters just did something for me.

Overall, I’d give the movie a 3.5/5. The storyline wasn’t too exciting, but the acting was giving what it was supposed to have gave. And #JusticeForLaurenLondon, she never gets the screen time she deserves.
