[Red Sparrow] looks good, has a strong lead performance, and it never becomes boring. But, it also lacks a lot of what audiences will probably want out of a movie like this.

There are better examples of this kind of movie out there.

A rare misstep from Jennifer Lawrence...

Feels overlong as the twists and turns pile up like empty vodka bottles outside the Kremlin bar.

On the surface, nearly none of it is clever, which is quite disappointing in a movie about espionage and duplicity and triple-crosses.
Nov 6, 2020's just a flat, disappointing thriller that doesn't really do anything but show off Lawrence's beautifully toned body.

If "mother!" is up for the Razzies this weekend, there's a chance that "Red Sparrow" will do the same next year.

The issue isn't the film's slow pace; it's its duration and lazy screenwriting that use violence and sex like a slap to the back of the head.

The main pieces of Red Sparrow, but the lack of developing secondary parts keep the movie from being a complete spy movie.

The trouble with Red Sparrow is that it doesn't realize it's a down and dirty sex thriller.

I guess I can say maybe see it once, mostly for Lawrence's performance and its intricate plot. I just don't know that I ever need to revisit the movie.

"Red Sparrow" mistakes a slow pace for a slow burn. For a film that aims to be tense and thrilling, to keep the audience on a wire, there's little suspense.

Lawrence is allowed to let her rich talents as an actor breathe life into a character that might have otherwise been played as shallow and far less interesting.

This movie is dark.

I really liked this movie.

Red Sparrow is a dense, thoroughly adult espionage tale, the likes of which are rarely seen at the multiplex.

Director Francis Lawrence... seems to have reasoned that, because Russian literature is so long and slow, making his movie long and slow would be the path to authenticity.

This is not entertainment, especially when the drawn-out brutal scene goes on and on and on. Way too gross and unnecessary.

Here's the thing about Red Sparrow. It's completely ridiculous, way too long, and yet also, somehow entertaining. A lot of that probably comes down to Lawrence, who pretty much just brazens her way through the proceedings.

Red Sparrow is lifelessly paced and frequently abusive towards female characters in the most manipulatively unsuccessful ways.
