(WLTX) - Life changes pretty quickly for Dominika Egorova. One week, she's a famous ballerina and the next, she's seducing a politician. It appears to be all for Mother Russia - but it's really all for her mother.
With some coercing from her uncle, she soon becomes a spy who excels at the art of seduction...or a "Sparrow." And her first target is Nate Nash, a CIA operative with a mysterious friend on the inside of Russian Intelligence. It's her job to find out who that friend (or traitor) is.
"Red Sparrow" has a pretty interesting plot, but it can also be a bit confusing at times. You're never quite sure who's really working for who and the accents mask a lot of the dialogue's clarity. But, if you're capable of staying with it, the story still works.
However, the film's R-rating is well-earned with plenty of intimate, sadistic and torturous moments. So, it's not for everyone...especially the kids!
Yes, it may be a bumpy ride getting there, but everything comes together in the end. And that's enough to produce a smile from the Leemoji. You, however, may see it differently. Just keep in mind that red signifies caution.
