Michael B Jordan on his role “Without remorse” – The New Indian Express
LOS ANGELES: Hollywood star Michael B Jordon, who plays John Kelly in Amazon Prime Video adaptation of Tom Clancy’s novel “No remorse,” says his character is like a master chess player who methodically charts every step of the way to achieve its goals.
The thriller, starring Jordan, Jamie Bell, Colman Domingo among others, is a spin-off of the iconic Jack Ryan film series and an origin story of the character in the Clancy universe.
According to the Official Journal, an elite Navy SEAL uncovers an international plot while seeking justice for the murder of his pregnant wife in Tom Clancy’s Without Remorse, the explosive tale of action hero John Clark, one of the most popular characters from Clancy’s Jack. The Ryan Universe.
When a squad of Russian soldiers kills his family in retaliation for his role in a top secret operation, Sr.
Chief John Kelly pursues the assassins at all costs.
Joining forces with another SEAL and an obscure CIA agent, Kelly’s mission unwittingly reveals a secret plot that threatens to engulf the United States and Russia in all-out war.
âWhile it’s true that Kelly is a far more deadly warrior than analyst Ryan, the character is more than just a muscle,â Jordan said in a statement.
Ryan is an intelligence agent, while Kelly is a soldier who gets things done by any means necessary.
âBut when it comes to achieving his goals, Kelly is like a master chess player who methodically charts every step of the way. Chess is something that I personally wanted to incorporate into the movie, because when John is in mission, he always has specific goals in mind, and to achieve them he makes decisions and strategic decisions, âthe actor said in a statement.
Jordan, best known for his roles in âBlack Pantherâ and the âCreedâ franchise, said the chess analogy went deeper into the film as they played with the idea that war is a game of pawns and of kings.
âOften in times of war, soldiers are seen as pawns because they are the ones doing the dirty work in the name of the larger agenda.
These are the boots on the ground, and they fight for their lives as the protected kings and queens sit down and give orders.
Then you have the rest of the pieces that are like the generals on the battlefield, âthe actor said.
Directed by Stefano Sollima, “Without remorse” is slated for release worldwide on April 30 on Amazon Prime Video.
