A Russian ballerina (Jennifer Lawrence) is recruited for a brutal training regime for "Sparrows," highly trained spies who use their sexuality to manipulate their targets. She is assigned to seduce a CIA officer (Joel Edgerton) as part of a mission to uncover a mole within the Russian government, but she is soon tempted to turn double agent and strike back against her cruel handlers. Matthias Schoenaerts, Jeremy Irons, Mary-Louise Parker, Charlotte Rampling, and Joely Richardson co-star. Directed by Francis Lawrence (The Hunger Games: Catching Fire), Red Sparrow is based on the novel of the same name by Jason Matthews.~Jack Rodgers

Cold War era espionage film that goes the distance
Owned for 2 weeks when reviewed.
A realistic cold war era spycraft film that gives a glimpse of the possible scenarios that really went down on the ground during this end period of the bankrupt in everyway soviet system.
Somewhat graphic in its realism. Be ready to close your eyes (or do some serious wincing) during some scenes.
Jennifer Lawrence is awesome in her portrait of a forced and crossed female heroine, That keeps her cool and gets more than just her job done in the end.
I highly recommend this film
(for all adults with a strong back bone and stomach! ;)
A great spy movie with plenty of twists! Starts off very unassuming, then becomes very riveting and very clever! Jennifer Lawrence literally has to be on the very tip of her toes throughout the entire movie! And she ends on a very low but high note! Her character has to outwit everybody around her in order for her to come out on top!
This is a movie for the late weekend, something to watch on a nice Sunday. It’s a good and enjoyable film but requires patience, thus watch it on a Sunday this movie runs a bit a long for a spy movie at 2 hours and a half. Best Buy steelbook art is a must have very elegant with deep black color. Video is amazing at native 4k, including sound A+++. The ending was smart, movie was great! And it’s J-Law!
Estrogen-packed killer spy movie for all audiences! Great movie for couples because males will find the movie's action on-par with today's great movies; and females will be in complete awe as well feeling proud to be a associated with the main character. Storyline was easy to follow and the movie will hold your attention from beginning-to-end. Highly recommend!
