I've been interested in seeing this spy film since it was released because it has had such mixed reviews.

It stars Jennifer Lawrence as a former Russian ballerina forced to become a Sparrow spy. Don't expect great Russian accents as you won't get them. It's also not a spy film in the Bond style, instead quite rough and realistic, with a fair bit of violence and torture.

It's quite a long film at 2 hours 20 minutes, but doesn't drag on too much anywhere. It has a few nice settings and also has just enough content to keep you interested, and the end is worth the wait.

Personally I would recommend it if you like spy style dramas such as The Americans or Homeland. I enjoyed it and it does leave itself open for a sequel or two if they wanted.

I enjoyed Red Sparrow quite a bit too. Are they looking to make a sequel to this film? I hope they do.
