Tom Clancy’s Without Remorse SEX/NUDITY 1

 – A husband kisses his pregnant wife’s abdomen and talks to the fetus, and then he kisses her and tries to seduce her; she tells him that she needs to go to sleep and he leaves the room. A husband and his wife dance closely together and she touches his head tenderly and whispers in his ear.
 Women wear low-cut dresses that reveal cleavage in several scenes. A man in a hospital bed is shown shirtless a few times and we see his bare shoulders, chest and abdomen. A man takes off his shirt in a prison cell and we see his bare shoulders, chest, abdomen and back.

Tom Clancy’s Without Remorse VIOLENCE/GORE 7

 – A man taking out his trash in a suburban neighborhood is run down by a van, as his young daughter sees him and screams; we see his body caught up under the tires and he lies crumpled and bloody on the pavement. A van stops in traffic and a man exits the back and shoots a man in another car several times (we see blood spray as the body thrashes and the windshield shatters). Armed men move through a house after they cut the power, they enter a bedroom and shoot a bed several times (we later see bloody bed clothes and understand that a man’s pregnant wife was killed); one of the intruders shoots another intruder and another man in the house arms himself and shoots several other armed intruders before being shot himself (we see bloody wounds and he gasps and gags as he drags himself to a bedroom where he finds his wife dead).
 An RPG is launched at several armed people blowing them back and dropping rubble on them; one man is shown dead with his limbs twisted and others are shown with bloody wounds, armed people shoot at each other as two attempt to leave a building, one man shoots another man, stabs two other men before shooting them both and shoots another on a flight of stairs (there is some crunching and blood spurts).
 A man driving a tow truck slams into the side of a car, pinning the driver and a passenger inside: the man pours gasoline over the outside of the car and ignites it, opens the door and shoots the driver, shoots the passenger in the leg and then the shoulder, and finally in the head as he asks for information. A man swerves his car across lanes of traffic and over a bridge into a river where the car fills with water and he watches a man in the car with him as he drowns; the driver sits motionless briefly until a diver with oxygen arrives and gives the man air through a breather. An armed man leans over a pool of water and is pulled in by someone under the water as other armed people stand up from the water and shoot another armed man (blood spurts). A woman attacks a sniper, they fight, and the woman loses her weapon and arms herself with a knife that she uses to stab the man in the back (we hear a crunch) before taking the knife out of the wound and wiping the blood off on her jacket.
 Armed soldiers prepare to undertake a mission to recover a hostage, they move through an area, blow open a door and enter a building where they shoot several people inside with blood splattering, explosives are thrown into a room and blood sprays and the hostage is found with a bag over his head and bloody wounds on his head. An armed man enters an apartment and finds two men dead with bloody bullet wounds, and a third man wearing an explosive vest and holding a detonator; the explosive is detonated and people and rubble are thrown as others outside the building shoot at the first man and several other armed people hitting one man in the abdomen and another in the leg; police arrive and we see two officers shot dead with blood splatter.
 A man shoots his way off a roof and fights several armed men as he moves out of the building; he strangles a man and another man falls through a banister as others shoot at the first man; he arms an explosive and throws it as it blows up and several other men are thrown in the blast (we hear some moaning from wounded individuals). A man in a prison cell prepares to be attacked by guards, he wraps his hand with a T-shirt, blocks the sink and pours water on the floor as guards with clubs and shields enter the cell and he fights them with punches and kicks and clubs, holding one around the throat until he is taken out of the cell. Explosives detonate in a building after a group of soldiers leave in a helicopter.
 Several people prepare for a jump from a passenger plane, they are shot at by another plane and the plane crashes into the sea where we see the pilot dead and others struggle to surface as the plane fills with water and sinks; one man is trapped inside but floats to the surface and revives. A man pours a bottle of liquor over his head, urinates on his clothes (we hear the trickle) and walks through a street in front of a car that stops and honks at him as he pretends to be drunk, and moves toward an embassy where security members approach him and tell him to leave; one shoves him and he walks away.
 A man blows a hole in a wall and several people run through to get out of a building, and the man runs to the roof where he throws grenades to the street below and shoots at police gathered there. Several armed people enter a room, one man holds a gun on another man and slams him against a wall, shoots at the wall behind his head and presses against his throat (the man’s lips turn blue and he coughs and yells when the man lets him go). A man returns to his home where his wife and child were murdered and yells in frustration; he retrieves weapons and money from a hot water heater and leaves. A man steals an ambulance and drives away, he stops and collapses over the steering wheel (we see a bloody head wound) but is found and helped away. A man chokes a man until he falls unconscious; we see the man with his hands tied in the passenger seat of a car and the driver threatens to kill his family; he says, “I’ll make you watch me kill your family.”
 A man holding a rifle points it at another man in a nearby building and says, “I’m just looking.” A man grabs another man in a threatening manner and he is called off by his commanding officer. We see a collection of arms held in a warehouse and it is referred to as a Russian arms depot. We hear news reports of strained relations between US and Russia.
 A man with bloody wounds is wheeled into a hospital and is later shown on life support with bloody bandages (we hear that he is in critical condition). A man in a hospital bed and unconscious has a nightmare about his wife being blown away through a forest covered with leaves and he cannot reach her; he thrashes and moans. A woman is shown with a long scar on the side of her face. People are shown at a funeral as soldiers fire weapons in tribute.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
