Trivia

Source novelist Jason Matthews may not have encountered a real-life Dominika in his work with the CIA, but "honeypot" school was indeed part of Soviet intelligence training. "In the Soviet Union, they had a school that taught young women the art of entrapment, the art of seduction, for blackmailing intelligence targets," Matthews explained. "They had a Sparrow School in the city of Kazan, on the banks of the Volga River, where young women were taught how to be courtesans. They were called 'Sparrows'." See more »

Goofs

When Nate meets with his source, then is followed by Russian police, they shout "Stop! Militsiya!", which was the name of the police force in Russia until 2011. The cars, however, have the word "politsiya" - Police inscribed with Russian characters on the side, which is correct. See more »

Excellent film and excellent news

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.
