They don't make espionage thrillers like this anymore, so I'm glad I watched it.Very much like an 80's Cold War film, set in modern day Russia. We all know Putin's Russia is pretty much Communist under a different name, which makes the cold war feel of it come through more.As youngsters grow up thinking socialism and communism is a good thing (as that's what's being shoved down their throat by schools and colleges etc) this reminds us how those people live. Obviously with a few exceptions as it's pretending not to be communist lol

A Throwback Espionage ThrillerReviewed byprhayhurstVote: 9/10
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 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.
Ballerina Dominika Egorova is recruited to 'Sparrow School,' a Russian intelligence service where she is forced to use her body as a weapon. Her first mission, targeting a C.I.A. agent, threatens to unravel the security of both nations. Long, Bland and Boring 'Red Sparrow' is a career suicide for both Jennifer Lawrence and Francis Lawrence, her russian accent is poor and even becomes american during the running time, the sex scenes are weird and disturbing and as for the 'Black Widow' plot? It's boring and the way she even becomes a Sparrow even worse. This movie made 'Mother' look like The Dark Knight compare to it. (0/10)
