Super Hero Or Spy?

This movie is based on a novel. It can be tough to translate the body of a novel into a movie. 50 Shades series is an example. The book is a spy thriller. The natural human body aspect of the trade goes back to James Bond. I remember those action films, also dealt with spies falling in love with one other. It was interesting for the same reason I find most espionage films interesting. The film version of From Russia With Love depicted the Soviet Union back in the 1970s as a cold and harsh intelligence agency that would easily murder one of its own if necessary. This compelling film visits the secretive KGB spy school that creates bait to blackmail the capitalist enemy in the name of the state. However, you would think the ascendancy of former KGB spook Putin to presidency would have retired that style of cold warfare. Look at Trump. Clearly not.

Red Sparrow takes place in recent past. The Russian spies want our heroine played by Jennifer Lawrence to be merely a puppet and be manipulated by those who want personal gain at her expense. they want more like the rampant sex trade that exists in Russia and other nations than a super spy. They fail because she is strong. I figured the extra running time (2 hours and 21 minutes) had mostly to do with including more of what was in the novel. I think the depiction of the sex school is what will make the audiences on this film. It feels powerful, sexy, curious and intriguing, like a blast of realpolitik.

Meanwhile we also follow what is to be the American hero in our story, Joel Edgerton, a CIA agent who may or may not have the machismo to lure a valuable female spy. They are to meet in Hungary, something that the CIA recognises as an attempt to get secret info from Edgerton. There is a moment at this point in the movie where several sub-plots appear. Lawrence's roommate in Budapest is another Russian spook and has a secret plan as another sex spy. The fat Russian diplomat-cum-pervert ringleader in Budapest has his own agenda. The different members of Russia intelligence have their own agenda. The story weaves between these subplots as Lawrence blows up expectations in order to preserve her life. One question that the audience may wonder about is how come when Lawrence's loyalty is questioned, her mother isn't used by the State for leverage. The answer: she already is. She is being blackmailed all along. Another is how the pieces of a puzzle that consist of the final plot twist are in for a dramatic and sexy twist.

I found myself excited to go into extra innings due to the extra plot twists. Lawrence does well not telegraphing her real intentions. The movie also is put together well, making good use of the locations in Hungary. There are also a couple of good shocks in the film, which means this is no ta Disney film with its millions of universe offshoots.

Watch it for heart pounding thrilling action. Watch it for the natural beauty of a woman. Watch it to see how evil the American spooks and the Russian slaves to the state are.

Don't know why everybody is shouting that this is such a violent movie.

I'm not sure what some people expect, but this is definitely not a movie for the faint hearted. It's not a Disney movie or anything that resembles The Hunger Games which has a higher rating. But I've seen much more violent movies than this one (try watching 120 day of Sodome, I dare you).

Hot hot Hot

Action, death, murder, sex and Russkies.

Where else do you get to see Jennifer Lawrence go spread eagle? Even her leaked nude photos on the internet didn't have that!

I wish there were more films like this, but for now buckle up and enjoy this cool film.
