After an attack that leaves him badly wounded and his pregnant wife dead, Navy SEAL John Kelly (Michael B. Jordan) makes sure he’s part of a team going after the Russian assassins. After all those Jack Ryan movies, another character created by Tom Clancy, the future John Clark, gets his own origin story (that has nothing to do with the novel). The hunt for the Russians keeps throwing our hero into explosive situations, ultimately revealing who the real villain is (to no one’s surprise). Jodie Turner-Smith is far from convincing as a seasoned SEAL officer, but Jordan is solid and the action intense.
