In a post-Cold War Russia Jennifer Lawrence finds herself in the center of Russian Intelligence operations. Being thrusted into a new life or death landscape, she adapts to survive. Jennifer Lawrence as usual thrives in the spotlight. From emotionally driven scenes, to becoming a character. Maybe not an entirely unique character to what she is used to but embodies the character none the less. Red Sparrow takes a long look into the retrieval of a mole. And yes, I do mean long. Reaching almost two and a half hours, brevity was not their goal. However, the movie keeps your attention for the most part to where it doesn't feel as long. But really not that much shorter. At points the film does linger, and you find yourself wondering when it will pick up, and who is this other Russian needed person for. People come in and out of the plot at points to just drive the story along. I think if the movie was to cut out 30 minutes it would have been more effective. The film definitely was a solid film, one that I know the general public won't fall in love with, based on some of the gritty and almost over the top violent scenes. But a film nonetheless that warrants a looking in to. Jennifer once again finds herself in a role that pushes the boundaries of sexuality and violence. In a different approach, yes, but one that may be more provocative than necessary.Director Francis Lawrence is definitely riding Jennifer's coat tail into success. Not that she is bringing all of the talent, but with Francis putting her at the forefront, she is definitely driving his vision into fruition. I'm sure he will make another movie starring her, and we will see how much influence she will have on the subsequent films and how far they can push the envelope. Seeing as from the first hunger games he directed to the last pushed the boundaries a ton already. Red Sparrow was the next step, and by the next movie we could have a very crazy, sexual, and violent, rebellious J-Law on our hands.

Though I'm a fan of Ms Lawrence and wouldn't fault her performance all that much, this film's attempt to portray Russia as the home of overly cruel spymasters doesn't ring very true to me. It smells of over-the-top propaganda hoping to cast Russia as some soulless country without moral compass. If the US were given this treatment, we would all see through the overwrought bias. But as Russia is in the news, we tend to tolerate this kind of hyperbole.
At the start I really couldn't picture Ms Lawrence as a Russian for some reason. But she does a fairly good job of bringing her role to life, despite a lame accent. Quickly, however, I started to wish I had read the book first. There's a buildup and then a middle act that the director pretty much bungles. The problem is Red Sparrow's psyche is not well delineated during a crucial time in the story. All the plot elements are there but they're deliberately not gathered together. Why, I have no idea, as the story might have been much more compelling if played out under better direction. But then that might have been how the book does it.
Anyway, I was sorry to have missed Bruce Willis' new movie by the time it was over. It was also opening this weekend. Red Sparrow didn't work for me on several levels but I doubt Ms Lawrence's career takes much of a hit.
I want my money back. Saw this hoping for a Black Widow style sexy action thriller but I was served a c-grade gore fest. Everyone in the cinema was cringing and a couple even walked out. Do not believe the marketing around this film! This is soooo bad it leaves a sick taste in your mouth. Everything is bad: the acting, the accents, the weird characters, the premise, the cardboard love interest, the pointless brutal violence, everything. It drags on and on and you are relieved when it ends. Do not waste your time or your money.
