Ballerina Dominika Egorova is recruited to 'Sparrow School,' a Russian intelligence service where she is forced to use her body as a weapon. Her first mission, targeting a C.I.A. agent, threatens to unravel the security of both nations.
Foul-mouthed mutant mercenary Wade Wilson (AKA. Deadpool), brings together a team of fellow mutant rogues to protect a young boy with supernatural abilities from the brutal, time-traveling cyborg, Cable.
12 Strong tells the story of the first Special Forces team deployed to Afghanistan after 9/11; under the leadership of a new captain, the team must work with an Afghan warlord to take down the Taliban.
A young Russian intelligence officer is assigned to seduce a first-tour CIA agent who handles the CIA's most sensitive penetration of Russian intelligence. The two young officers collide in a charged atmosphere of trade-craft, deception, and inevitably forbidden passion that threatens not just their lives but the lives of others as well.
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: "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." See more »
Dominika suffers a broken left leg and has to use a cane to support herself. She is shown holding the cane with her left hand. This is not the correct way to support oneself if the left leg or foot is injured; she should use her right hand to hold the cane, thereby easing the pressure off the injured limb. Conversely, if her right leg or foot were injured, she should hold the cane using her left hand. When one walks, one's left hand and right foot swing forward, and then the right hand and left foot follow suit alternately. So, with her left leg injured, her right hand should hold the cane to help support the left leg. See more »
You were dancing for them because they were letting you I mean, you see it now, right? You belong to them pretty much your whole life. So, Dominika, work with me. Make this something that you own for the first time in your life. And make them, make them fucking pay.
What is it you want from me?
Whatever you can give us.

Firstly, this is an amazing film. It stands out in a world full of childish sequels, prequels and bland and boring movies. Finally, a film for adults with action, intrigue, psychological warfare and sex.
I am glad they still make films like this.
Secondly, and this is the good news part or rather second piece of good news, all the Russian hackers and bots whose life is comprised of not doing constructive are not very good. We have proof here. They have flooded this site and others according this film bad reviews, but given their command of 'English' we can spot them so easily and breathe a sigh of relief that they are so obvious. Clearly, Russian motherland defenders (who do nothing to improve their decrepit country all day and instead sit behind their computers 24/7) are pathetic.
Here are examples just from the top page of reviews here:
"Red rate for red movie"
"This is so money waste to watch this."
A reviewer called 'english'_artist writes: "Porn movie or 'spie' movie?"
or how about this: "blatant propaganda in 2018 DansGame "
Dear Russians, put down the vodka bottle, turn off the laptop, step outside and pave a road or repair a bridge. They are all crumbling.
Everyone else, this is an action-packed film in a sea of weekly Marvel films or boring sequels. Watch it.
