Trivia

Dominika Egorova (Jennifer Lawrence)'s training ultimately leads her to CIA operative Nate Nash, portrayed in the film by Joel Edgerton. Source novelist Jason Matthews explained the unusual courtship between Nate and Dominika: "Inevitably, they fall in love, which is dangerous and forbidden for him. Like Romeo and Juliet, it's a love affair that can't end well." See more »

Goofs

In the film, a US public servant delivers sensitive information on 3.5" floppy disks. It is extremely unlikely that a computer supplied by the US government to this servant would be able to transfer sensitive data to an external device - let alone a floppy drive. Additionally, there is the issue of capacity since a floppy disk only holds 1.44 MB of data (even with compression and using only text files - why not simply use an USB drive which can store GB of data).

Edited: In modern day (2018) police and military do still use floppy disk to store classify documents. Since its impossible to hack or clone a floppy without having the physical disk in hand. let alone they need a floppy drive to even read it. So its technically accurate they would go through the trouble and uses like 8 floppies for security. See more »

Almost perfect
2 August 2018 | by lgf-01733See all my reviews

Violent, violent, violent film. It is superb. Jennifer Lawrence is slender yet has a super rack. She also sports a long hair cut here. Love it. She is powerful, sexy and puts it to work. Love the action and brutality. Sorry, it isn't a joke marvel film. If you want stupid wisecrack humor go watch Thor or something.
