My thoughts on Red Sparrow

Red Sparrow movie review

First of all, this movie is very intense and brutal. there are quite some scenes where I looked away.

Secondly, the actors has done a great job. Jennifer Lawrence is doing a great job as the leading actress, I quite like her together with Joel Edgerton, who plays Nate. Matthias Schoenaerts plays the role of Ivan and is the creepy uncle. Charlotte Rampling has a small role at the Sparrow school, which is a shame, I wish I could see more of her.

At last but not least, the story itself is very good. I really like the story and the ending. However some scenes are very gruesome and disturbing, so this movie is definitely not for everyone.

Red Sparrow is a spy movie with a twist. The movie is a like violent puzzle, you never know what to expect. If you like spy thrillers and don’t mind gruesome scenes, go and watch Red Sparrow!
