Red Sparrow Movie Review
Red Sparrow: Je-Law dancing to the tunes of a secret spy school Sparrow
Red Sparrow is an upcoming spy thriller starring the young and beautiful Jennifer Lawrence and Joel Edgerton. The story is based on a spy novel of same name. It was written by Jason Matthews in 2013.
It is a well-developed story with role and responsibilities of spies in mind. Also the incidents of beautiful women luring into the service are intricately woven into a practical idea. But the movie fails to translate the idea into reality. It isn’t that the picture is far away from reality but that there is too much focus on Je-Law than the idea of spying with beautiful women.
Red Sparrow, Spy, Nudity & Sex
It is the story of Soviet spy service but it turns out to be the story of Je-Law or more appropriately her character. Dominika Egorova is an unsuccessful dancer but she’s very beautiful and her dance is quite seductive. While she’s packing her dancing career, a distant uncle of her is planning to use her body, mind and skills for service of the nation. Unaware of here spy career, Je-Law packs her backpack and moves home.
How could an average lady give her consent to be used like a human-weapon and go on a death-mission? Dominika has an ailing mother to support and also she wants to run away from her present life. The situation brings her uncle into dominating position where he starts cajoling and sometimes blackmailing her into the secret-spy-mission. Things are going to be very dangerous for Dominika and her uncle.
A tamed Dominika is packed to a secret spy school called “Sparrow”. It is here second birth after a Moscow ballerina. She meets the stern headmistress of the school and finds the head to be in total control of the school and the students. For Dominika, it is like submitting her life totally to service of the state.
Dominika learns spy-sex lessons in classroom and also gives her consent to go on a spy-sex-mission to pay for medical care of her ailing mother. The movie has too much of sex and violence. Nudity taught in class is unacceptable and at times it becomes irritating. Dominika is taught how to use features like boobs, buttock, thighs and stomach as weapons to control men of high positions.It is nudity and sex that seems to be moving the story and the movie.
Red Sparrow First Look & Poster
The poster wears a bloody red look; even the face of Jennifer Lawrence looks like a sketch on the poster. It seems she’s looking from the side of a man. She’s a true spy sparrow.
Why watch the movie?
Sex and violence are the bestselling ideas but in this movie, there is a school where innocent women are turned into killing females. It is a secret spy school with a mission to create female spies that can produce moles in enemy camps with their seduction techniques. While Je-Law fans will appreciate her new avatar, others would enjoy the cocktail of sex and violence.
