    Tom Clancy's Without Remorse

    ★★

    "Are you in heaven?"
    "I'm with you."

    Stefano Sollima's adaptation of Tom Clancy's 'Without Remorse' is generic and avoids utilizing essentially every aspect of its source material, sans a few names and a couple of similar events. There are countless moments that are inexplicable, a shame for a military thriller that relies on logistics and realistic intel to fuel its missions and action sequences, that you're supposed to accept with no questions asked, like the legality of a lot of…

    ★★

    A tired western with fair performances that adds virtually nothing new to the genre, Paul Greengrass' 'News of the World' features a patriarchal Tom Hanks as an ex-captain, one who is paid to travel from town to town to read the news to the locals, who now finds himself traveling across vast distances to return a mysterious girl with Indian ties to her home. Due to a rough language barrier, the duo slowly but surely warm…
