Review of the film No Regrets A winning combination in a spy thriller. A great adaptation to complement the universe of Tom Clancy and one of its main characters, John Clark, secondary in many of Jack Ryan's adventures, and here, with the help of Michael B. Jordan, becomes the main character, telling about his origins. like John Kelly, his name in this film (when you see him, you will understand everything) becomes the CIA-related character we know. If you take Stefano Sollima, director of Sicario 2, along with Jordan himself and screenwriter Taylor Sheridan (two Sicario, Wind River, Yellowstone), although the latter appears with another screenwriter like Will Staples, it seems like a winning combination for all the lights. ... And this. Wow, that's it.
Of course, there are different themes in the script and a few ... interesting moments that are also characteristic of this type of film. Some kind of memories or dreams, the need to have those moments in which they try to arouse pity in the viewer, relationship with his wife ... This is what burdens the story, which makes it unconvincing in some moments, but immediately the narrative of the film's power to change the direction of affairs and convince us. The plot itself, despite its simplicity, is more than well forested, but the brilliance of the script lies in the small details. Kelly's relationship with her boss, dialogues with Jamie Bell's character, character disguise techniques ... (watch out for the bath moment).
And then there is the action movie, dynamic, brutal, wild and with a western touch (this shooting at the house, that moment of Rio Bravo ...), which is very common when we talk about Sullim and Sheridan, but it also includes details such like a prison, starters that are cool and really powerful. To do this, you need an actor like Jordan who tosses the film on his back and becomes this rage, almost always methodical, cold, unforgiving. Both at the airport and at the end. Accompanied by Jamie Bell, Guy Pearce and especially Jodie Turner-Smith. The result is an elegant and powerful thriller, smart and well-armed, with dynamic action and the flavor of the nineties, but with the action of our time. It's so entertaining that I want to see it again.
