    I was worried it was going to be a rip off of atomic blond but I was very wrong, it was a strong movie with a solid story.
  • Odd story, imo.

    I didn’t really like the sexual roughness of this movie, but the ending explains why. I still wouldn’t watch this a second time, though. Still a dumb plot.

    JLaw was pretty good as a character. I read the comments below before deciding to watch it and I'm glad there is a pretty good divide on the consensus because I feel that this movie is worth the watch. I enjoyed the ending for sure
  • Very disappointing

    Having read the excellent book, I was looking forward to this movie. However, I found it very disappointing. If you haven't read the book, you will be a bit confused and find it hard to follow what is going on. If you have read book, you will be confused because the movie deviates from the book in important ways (especially in the final betrayal). It focuses on the violence rather than the broader spy story, which is unfortunate. I won't be watching the inevitable sequel.
  • Boring

    There’s a lot wrong with this movie. First, the person or persons who coached Jennifer Lawrence on her phony Russian accent need to be slapped. Her phony Russian accent was just about the worst I’ve ever heard. She constantly pronounced words using letters that the Cyrillic alphabet doesn’t have. Second, Jennifer Lawrence simply isn’t a good-enough actress to be the main star of a movie like this. The Hunger Games movies were okay, but only because Lawrence didn’t have to live up to a preconceived notion of what a “Katniss” was. We’ve all heard Russians, and we’ve all heard Russians speaking English. Lawrence just can’t do it. Third, the movie was littered with little mistakes that anyone paying attention will notice readily. There were tons of spelling errors, along with numerous mistakes in signs and labels. I really wanted to like this movie, because the premise is interesting to me. The fact is that Lawrence needs to spend less time on her political pursuits and more time on preparing for her movie roles. Avoid this movie.

    Is there nothing Jennifer Lawrence can’t do? Very interesting movie. I thought there would be more action, I assumed JL would be some sort of assassin. I was wrong but it was even better than expected.
