Goofs

One of her interrogators strikes Katya on the back of the head with a wooden truncheon. Such a strike carries an incredibly high risk of damaging vertebrae, or even detaching the brain stem causing immediate death. The risk of killing the subject of an interrogation through the use of such a strike, would be well understood by someone trained in interrogation technique. This is why rabbit punches are banned in contact sports. See more »

User Reviews

Finally a good film not made for children
14 October 2019 | by jakobialviSee all my reviews

So some things in this world can improve! Jennifer Larwrence, who has made a career out of appearing in silly sequels, stars in a serious movie aimed at adults and lovers of film that is based on a novel.

The action and foreign locales is enhanced by her beautiful face, hair and body. This one has it all.
