Without Remorse - A 2021 Action Movie

Without Remorse is an American 2021 action thriller film based on the 1993 novel of the same name by Tom Clancy. It is directed by Stefano Sollima and written by Taylor Sheridan and Will Staples.

About The Movie:

The movie started with John Kelly, a U.S. Navy SEAL who journed out on a path of revenge after his pregnant wife and unit members were killed by a Russian hitmen.

A team of US Navy SEALs, including Senior officer named Chief John Kelly, rescued a CIA operative who was taken hostage by a suspected pro-Assad paramilitary group. The situation became worst when the SEALs discovered that the captors wete actually Russian military. Three months later, in retaliation for their role in the mission, several members of the team were covertly killed by Russian FSB operatives. Kelly's pregnant wife Pam was murdered when the Russians broke into their house. Kelly killed all of them but one of them.

Meanwhile, in Washington, D.C., Kelly's SEAL team leader and friend who was called Lt. Commander Karen Greer, met with the CIA officer Robert Ritter and Secretary of Defense Thomas Clay to discuss how the FSB discovered the SEALs' identities and reviewed their response options. Leaked news of Russia's unprecedented attack on American soil caused the already-strained relationship between the two nations to sour further, which caused a new cold war. The CIA refused to conduct an investigation into the murders, motivating Greer to pass confidential information to Kelly.

Recovered from his injury,, Kelly tracked down the Russian diplomat, who issued the passports to the FSB operatives, and forced him to give up the name of the surviving assassin before killing him. Sent to prison for murder, Kelly bargained his way out by revealing the escaped operative was Victor Rykov, he was an ex-Spetznaz officer who was hiding in Murmansk, Russia. Greer recommended against letting Kelly participate in Rykov's capture, Clay overruled her on the condition that Kelly served his sentence after the mission.

Kelly flew to Murmansk with Greer and a CIA black ops team, planning to HALO jump into Russia. Attacked by a Russian fighter, their plane crashed into the Barents Sea. Kelly dived into the wreckage to recover essential equipment, including a zodiac boat. The team arrived in Murmansk and found Ritter, who Kelly suspected was to be blame for the intelligence leaks. Ritter swore he was not responsible and lead the team to Rykov. Kelly went off mission to confront Rykov, and got to know that he was a deep cover CIA asset. Rykov detonated his suicide vest, killing himself as the team became pinned down by sniper fire. As the police arrived, the team realized that the mission was a set up to have American soldiers killed on Russian soil to start a war.

Kelly volunteered to cover the team's escape and since he is a convicted murderer, his death could be plausibly denied. Kelly bought the team time to reach safety but was badly injured. He then used an explosion as cover to steal a police uniform and hijacked an ambulance to escape. Kelly and the surviving team members left the country by boat. Ritter officially reported that Kelly was dead, giving him chance to hunt for the traitor.

Back in D.C., Kelly confronted Clay and forced him into his car. After Kelly threatened Clay's family, he confessed to being behind the intelligence leaks and masterminding the conflict between the U.S. and Russia. Clay wanted to start a war with Russia to boost the economy and unite the American people against a common enemy.

Kelly drove the car over a bridge and made it sink to the bottom of the Potomac River, drowning Clay. Kelly escaped with a recording of the confession, with the help of Greer, who was waiting in the river with diving gear. At Washington Union Station, Greer gave Kelly a new identity provided by Ritter and he left to begin his new life as "John Clark".
