Dear Jennifer Lawrence,
You’re amazing just the way you’re.
For once, I really hope you’re dancing by yourself. But knowing the fact that you’re using double, it doesn’t change anything.
You’re still great!
And because you’ve learned Russian accent and ballet only for this movie. I salute you.
(FYI, I love Russian accent.)
Yesterday, I watched this movie with Day (yes. it’s another date)
She seems enjoying this movie although the movie was very heavy.
From one point on the start, I think this movie has similarity with the story of Black Widow (Marvel).
And I’m not the only one…
Even the director, Francis Lawrence shared his feelings on the comparisons between Red Sparrow and Black Widow from the Marvel comic books, played in the MCU by Scarlett Johansson. He said, “There’s people who think it’s very similar to the Black Widow story. This is not pulled from Black Widow, this is pulled from Red Sparrow, you know, it’s written by a guy who was in the CIA. It’s like, his references are coming from a very, very different place from that. But there’ll always be that. People like to put things in boxes, and I think it’s a really unique film. This is a thriller, it’s not action, again it’s not gadgetry. It’s a hard-R. There’s violence, it’s a bit perverse, it’s suspenseful, a lot of intrigue. It’s a different kind of spy film.”
So, ya… this movie is a thriller movie, not an action.
You can see through out the movie, it has a very little fighting scene, and you’ll find a lot of bloods.
Which is pretty good for me.
Do not complain…! LOL
Back to it’s title, Red Sparrow.
It has been told that Sparrow is a code name for a trained Russian spy.
But Dominika it self gained the name Red Sparrow (for the title of this movie) only because she used the red dress while performing ballet in the beginning of the movie.
I don’t want to spoil the story here, but you need to know that the ending is very cool!!
And ya, honestly I didn’t expect that.
Knowing throughout the movie, Dominika’s character is very unpredictable.
The only thing we know is that she is a Prima Ballerina, and she lives with only her mother, who is very sick. And she loves her very much.
She’ll do anything for her mother.
Well, we can easily catch the situation that she hates her uncle very much but it still not helping to guess the ending.
Yeah, you should just watch it and bear with the sadistic R-rating movie.
And, don’t bring under-17 yo friend with you. LOL
