Red Sparrow.

My son Ranjan had seen Red Sparrow earlier this week and was insistent that I see it. I tried to on a few occasions earlier in the week but, was unable to due to unavoidable reasons. I was able to catch a matinee show earlier this afternoon and I understand why Ranjan wanted me to see it.

Jennifer Lawrence as a Red Sparrow is simply magnificent and the story, direction, photography and action kept the audience spell bound for the entire running time of 2 hours and 20 minutes. Some very tight editing ensured that the pace was maintained and all in all a remarkably well made film. The story is built almost entirely around the lead character and so the others make more or less cameo roles in it.

The spy story is unusual and the climaxing turns and twists makes for top notch thrill.

If you are interested in spy stories particularly about women being trained to be honey traps, don’t miss this. I guarantee that you will thank me for this recommendation.

  4. I’d like to see it, but I’m curious – if you put yourself in a woman’s shoes, for a moment, is it still a movie you’d recommend?

    I’m debating between this, Black Panther, and A Wrinkle in Time, this weekend. If I had to choose one in the theater and two on Amazon or Netflix, which should it be?

    • Welcome back Holly. I have missed seeing you around in my blog.

      Yes, I would recommend putting myself in a woman’s pair of shoes, unhesitatingly too. It is a woman centric film but, not a chicflic. It is a serious tale told well and acted superbly by all the cast.

      I have not seen either Black Panther or A Wrinkle in Time. I am unable to offer an opinion. I however intend seeing both if and when they are screened here.

    I have seen Red Sparrow and I love it. A friend suggested that I read the novel on which it is based on before watching the movie, but I couldn’t. I would try and read the novel now to see the parts that were omitted in the movie.
