Red Sparrow Takes Twists Audiences Wont See Coming

red sparrow review

In the age of spy movies and James Bond, we’re all familiar with a certain format these movies take. But when theater goers head in to see Red Sparrow, they’ll be treated to a different type of spy movie filled with twists and turns. Through all of the spy genre movies, and possibly in reality, there is always murmurs of women trained to seduce men as part of their mission to gather information or to kill them.

Red Sparrow focuses on these women and one in particular that was forced into the role of being a Red Sparrow, a woman known for being beautiful and deception. The movie follows her path from being a prima ballerina to being the master manipulator needed for her new role. While reluctant at first, she uses her strengths to get her ultimate goal and take down the people she needs to through her new position.

Throughout the movie there are twists and turns that the viewer will not see coming, and a few that are a bit predictable. But overall the movie is filled with intrigue and everything a spy movie in the genre demands. Seeing as the movie is Rated R, be prepared for quite a bit of nudity and violence. There are some torture scenes that I actually shielded my eyes from, so viewer beware on that note.


red sparrow reviewDominika Egorova is many things. A devoted daughter determined to protect her mother at all costs. A prima ballerina whose ferocity has pushed her body and mind to the absolute limit. A master of seductive and manipulative combat. When she suffers a career-ending injury, Dominika and her mother are facing a bleak and uncertain future. That is why she finds herself manipulated into becoming the newest recruit for Sparrow School, a secret intelligence service that trains exceptional young people like her to use their bodies and minds as weapons. After enduring the perverse and sadistic training process, she emerges as the most dangerous Sparrow the program has ever produced. Dominika must now reconcile the person she was with the power she now commands, with her own life and everyone she cares about at risk, including an American CIA agent who tries to convince her he is the only person she can trust.
