Apparently our Russian comrades hate this film. Oh well, don't hate the messenger. Go fix your country! Red Sparrow is fun, action-packed, violent, sexual and a whole lot of fun. No it is not a Disney film. You know where to find those. This is a strong movie with depth and power for adults.
Very interesting movie with an outstanding performance by Jennifer Lawrence (by alexandra-42521)
It is true that Red Sparrow without Jennifer Lawrence would just be half as good. She is the center of the movie and with minimal acting she tells us everything we need to know. It´s just a look into her eyes and you are inside everything she has to experience or endure. In the middle of a truly haunting story which will stay with you for a very long time. And which you´ll want to rewatch to catch all the twists and turns! From the first scene on you are seated in a roller coaster which goes on and on and you don´t know how to leave - but that is all meant in a positive way! You never want <more>
to leave it, you want to know what happens next! You experience one hell of a ride and yes it´s violent and there are some sex scenes but it is a movie for grown-up people and they should not have a problem with that. Everything happening in Red Sparrow is for a cause and not violence and explosions with no sense at all. We see this way too often in movies nowadays so this one should be highly appreciated. Alongside Jennifer Lawrence´s wonderful performance there is a really good supporting cast, especially Matthias Schoenaerts as her uncle Vanya. Joel Edgerton, Charlotte Rampling, Jeremy Irons and all the others were fine as well. I loved the wonderful cinematography and the truly brillant score from James Newton Howard. it is definitely one of his best! You have to check this out as well! Francis Lawrence and author Justin Haythe did a great job bringing Jason Matthew´s novel to life for the big screen. It is different from the book in some ways but this is good and the movie really keeps you guessing like the trailer announced. Red Sparrow gives you insight into a world of its own, we are allowed to witness for 2 1/2 hours. You feel like being strangled at moments because there is no choice at all for the leading lady, but in the end you can really understand what being empowered means! It is a spy movie masterpiece! And Dominika is one of the brave, fearless, deep woman characters we need nowadays! I hope for the other books of Jason Matthews to become movies as well since we really need more of this powerful woman character. So go see this movie! It´s excellent!
First off, I know nothing of the book and original story. I went into the movie thinking of it as a kind of "Nikita" movie and because I like the actors and actresses I wanted to give it a shot.I'm not going to give up any of the movie but I can tell you this. It was very well done. Are there errors? Yes. I've yet to see a perfect movie. But the acting is great. The cinematography is nicely done. Story is very well written. Are the twists and turns predictable? Maybe. But I don't sit in movies trying to figure them out. I like to let the movie take me on a journey. And <more>
this one delivered.I honestly don't understand all the negative reviews. Everyone around me in our theater loved it. Was it violent? Oh yeah. More than I expected. Even a bit vicious, if you will. It was hardcore. Was it a bit harsh on the Russians? Yes. But this is fiction. It's not a biography. And having been to Russia and soent time there, it had a very Russian flare. I would say that it was modern day mixed with cold war.But let me tell you, I doubt the concepts were horribly off the mark. And, honestly, you could probably reverse the countries positions in the movie and still wouldn't be horribly off the mark. I mean, we're talking about espionage and counter-espionage... All's fare in love and war, right?My suggestion? Disregard the reviews. Go see it with an open mind and give it a chance. I did and I loved it! Can't wait for the wife to see it and to watch it with her!
Don't believe the 1 star raters - this is not a Disney film and doesn't pretend to be (by stasapfob)
Well as someone who actually read the book and just saw the movie, and having seen how incongruous many of the ratings are here on IMDb, I felt obliged to pass on a few notes. Frankly, I'm flabbergasted at the large number of low ratings - some weirdo rated it low as there was not ENOUGH nudity clearly he must have wound up in the wrong theatre! , on the other end of the spectrum are the puritan nut-jobs who will denigrate an entire film because their hyper-active sensibilities are offended! Perhaps reading and understanding warning labels on movies would be useful to avoid future <more>
surprises - did the terms "brutal violence, sexual violence, disturbing content, and nudity" not give you a clue?I'm always really impressed how screenplay writers take an excellent and very complex book such as Red Sparrow and, out of necessity, condense the story/eliminate sub-plots and still come off with a movie adaptation that captures the basic premise of the book and is shorter than 6hrs long! . I'm not sure why they substituted locations from the book Helsinki and Rome/Athens for Budapest and London budget/logistics/tax incentives? , but it doesn't impact the story. I'm impressed with how the movie deftly wove key elements of the book into a shorter narrative, and yet still preserved the key story line and character arcs of the novel for example the book has Californian Senator selling secrets to the SVR, while the movie puts this as the Chief of Staff to the US Ambassador to Hungary - enabling there to still be a mole hunt inside both the US and Russian governments . In one of the opening scenes, I was ready to criticize the film for lack-luster research - Nate is receiving a coded message which comprises a letter "F" phonetically relayed as "Frank" vice "Foxtrot" you don't have to be in the Air Force or Type A - I am admittedly both to know that NATO, ICAO, International Aviation, and Western militaries/police services around the world use "Foxtrot." It kind of reminded me of those cheesy 80's cop shows that insist on using "Baker" vice "Bravo." However, after this one albeit extremely minor error, I found myself immersed in a totally believable and realistic world of post-Cold War espionage.One reviewer said there was not a word of actual Russian spoken in the movie - again proving that some people are just not paying attention - I recall of at least one line when Dominika's boss speaks to her in Russian in the London hotel room. The number of reviewers that criticized the "fake" Russian accents to me must be Russians more upset about how the movie portrays Russia and Russian SVR ethics/tactics in a negative light. Considering the pedigree of the book's author, I'm inclined to believe in the realism and authenticity of the storyline. At least the actors made an effort to speak English with a Russian accent to lend authenticity to the story and boy have we come a long way from Sean Connery's Scottish "Russian" accent in "Hunt For Red October" - and I'm an massive Connery fan! .Folks, without any spoilers here, this is a harsh and graphic movie, but intended to tell a story based on how espionage, intelligence and counter-intelligence work in the real world. The violence, torture and nudity in this film is not gratuitous at all, but essential to the authenticity and realism of the story. If people want mindless, "no thinking required," family-friendly fluff, they should stick to Marvel, Disney or Pixar movies. I think Jennifer Lawrence does a brilliant job in this film; she has made another bold movie choice to broaden her character portfolio personally, I wasn't a huge fan of "Mother" - but that is more me, not being a fan of that genre . The movie ending has a surprise plot-twist that deviates from the book - a forgivable Hollywood nuance to show justice/closure, and end on a slightly more positive note. Like the book, the movie sets us up perfectly for a legitimate sequel - I, for one, hope this is something being contemplated!
Red Sparrow is not what it seems to be and that's actually a good thing. Reunited with director Francis Lawrence, Jennifer Lawrence brings the star power to this cold and rough thriller. This is not an action movie as it has barely any action sequences, but it's a clever and well thought out political drama. It's one of those few interesting cases when you can't quite read the protagonist, and Jennifer proves a wild card here. The chemistry just isn't there though, it's hard to buy Lawrence and Edgerton's romance. And it bothers a bit that all the russian folks are <more>
played by americans it can't be that hard to find decent russian actors . But make no mistakes, this is a hell of ride, it's violent, it's brutal, and it's nasty bones will creep up on you.
Finally An Intriguing And Original Film (by nby-83430)
It seems to me that Hollywood has been pushing out endless childish sequels with poor actors recently.Red Sparrow is none of those things. It shows a topical issue, gives its viewers lots of action and heart pounding moments. The actors are impressively good and take chances and push boundaries. I am impressed that films like this still exist.
The arrest of a Russian spy by the FBI this week (by Stephanie-Naderi)
Shows how close to truth this film is. It is not a documentary however. It is lots of fun. Has a lot of action, violence and sex the Russian FBI arrested had moved in with a Conservative leader . The main actor and actress give it their all and put ina fine performance.Yet nothing is as brutal as the film's beginning where hopes are literally shattered.
Much better than expected - intelligent, mature thriller (by rabbitmoon)
I'll admit I was worried about the 1 star reviews - I was expecting a typical 'Hitman Agent 47' or 'Spectre' style film packed with stupidity and self-consciousness, eager to impress a teenage audience with gimmicks, wisecracks and all that usual tedious trash. But it really isn't anything like that. Its not quite along the lines of Tinker Tailor, or Bridge of Spies, perhaps more like excellent TV show 'The Americans'. You really do have to pay attention to details to get the most out of the slow-burning story, and there ARE subtle levels of depth to be <more>
unpicked in appreciating motives. It doesn't treat the audience like a bunch of morons, which is getting rarer. People whinge about Jennifer Lawrence's russian accent but then when don't people whinge about any accents in films? It was fine. Overall I found the tone/vibes refreshingly different perhaps because they were more gritty old-school than modern Netflixy like everything seems to be these days . Definitely worth seeing if you like this kind of thing - don't be dissuaded by the weird, undeserved 1 star reviews.
Russian bots and apologists hate it -- Americans who know spy movies will enjoy (by Scott-344)
Spy movies in a le Carré vein can be judged on how well they handle issues of deceit and personal loyalty. "Red Sparrow" does a solid job of creating a plot that's complex, making us wonder who's deceiving whom, without being so jumbled it doesn't make sense. Solid performances, directing, and -- this I admire -- clear and impactful editing of fight scenes earn this a solid recommendation from me, an aficionado of spy movies. 4 stars out 5, 8 out of 10 for IMDB.The film is violent and sexy in the way "Marathon Man" was in the '70s, and while there's no <more>
villain here as memorable as Laurence Olivier's Nazi dentist Zel, there are some nice supporting characters. Performances are first rate. Accents didn't bother me one bit. This is an American film geared toward English-speaking audiences. It doesn't need to have dialogue in Russian, as one clueless reviewer suggested. I think there was one line in Russian at the beginning Gimmicks like the one used at the beginning of "The Hunt for Red October" -- Connery et al speaking Russian until the moment the camera pushes into Connery's mouth and then pulls back and the rest of the movie is in English -- are fine, but not necessary. We've been there and done that. It's good to just get going with the story with dialogue we can understand.I love non-realistic Bond movies for their action, humor, and production value, and I also love gritty spy films like "The Spy Who Came in from the Cold" and "Three Days of the Condor" even though Condor is a pure political statement -- unrelated to the actual world of CIA in any way . "Red Sparrow" falls somewhere in-between Bond and grittier '60s and '70s spy films. If you're a puritan who hates male and female nudity, then stick with Nickelodeon. And if you're a Russian kleptocrat's lackey who hates the way this film portrays the bankruptcy of modern Russia, then stick with... I don't know... "Battleship Potemkim."Reviewers who give "Red Sparrow" one-star either have an agenda unrelated to film reviewing on their minds, or they don't know what they're talking about. "Red Sparrow" is a worthy entry in the spy movie canon.
