What a terrible movie. I'm sorry, but Jennifer Lawrence can't act and people saying this is her finest work are delusional. The accent itself is very laughable. I walked out of the theater because it was so bad. Don't waste your breath or money on this.

Not worth it.Reviewed bylindaiamayaVote: 1/10
I somehow understand where about 40% of the critics (professional or otherwise) are coming from. They expect fast pace action, laugh a few minute , action packed thriller movie a la True Lies if I dare say. One that this movie is not - its an old fashioned, pace building movie with plot twist and turns that keeps you guessing.
I've read a couple of reviews saying that the acting is bland and there's no chemistry between the main protagonists. J.Law's poker face acting is close to perfect to be honest . Shows her capacity to bottle her emotions and be unpredictable. Of course US of A will always get the last laugh but there was a possibility that it may also go the other way.
I enjoyed it, but that's me.
Though I'm a fan of Ms Lawrence and wouldn't fault her performance all that much, this film's attempt to portray Russia as the home of overly cruel spymasters doesn't ring very true to me. It smells of over-the-top propaganda hoping to cast Russia as some soulless country without moral compass. If the US were given this treatment, we would all see through the overwrought bias. But as Russia is in the news, we tend to tolerate this kind of hyperbole.
At the start I really couldn't picture Ms Lawrence as a Russian for some reason. But she does a fairly good job of bringing her role to life, despite a lame accent. Quickly, however, I started to wish I had read the book first. There's a buildup and then a middle act that the director pretty much bungles. The problem is Red Sparrow's psyche is not well delineated during a crucial time in the story. All the plot elements are there but they're deliberately not gathered together. Why, I have no idea, as the story might have been much more compelling if played out under better direction. But then that might have been how the book does it.
Anyway, I was sorry to have missed Bruce Willis' new movie by the time it was over. It was also opening this weekend. Red Sparrow didn't work for me on several levels but I doubt Ms Lawrence's career takes much of a hit.
