Oh, yeah, it’s really terrible.
But I object. Clancy wasn’t a wordsmith, and “Japanese sausage” is one of the worst crimes ever committed to prose, but the dude could still write a goddamn potboiler like few others. There’s a point in most Clancy novels, usually with a few hundred pages left, where you cannot put the book down and are committed to finishing it to find the ending. He spends hundreds of pages building up the tension and moving a dozen of pieces into place, and then he unloads.
This movie has absolutely none of that. It doesn’t even resemble Without Remorse in the slightest. It’s horribly written, everything feels rushed, I have no idea who a lot of the secondary characters are and don’t care for them, and it’s stupid. The only thing it has in common with Clancy is it sprinkles some character names around.
What a disappointment. Taylor Sheridan wrote this? The director also did the great Italian crime movie Gomorrah. What a disappointment.
