Red Sparrow

Let me preface this review with the fact that I think Jennifer Lawrence is an incredible actress. Unfortunately, being so good, sometimes the material that she is working with does not live up to her talents. “Red Sparrow” is fair, maybe good, but not great. Lawrence is excellent with a Russian accent. The plot is a throwback to a Cold War spy story. Her character starts out as a gifted ballet dance who suffers a career ending injury. She is recruited by a clandestine spy network that does terrible things. The film is bloody and graphic with nudity. It is also too long. The ending will knock you out and makes it worth sitting through. Not a bad thriller.
