Honestly, the acting is solid and the pace is fine. The locations are all spot on. But 5 minutes after watching it, you'll have completely forgotten the film. Nothing about it is particularly memorable. And the end of the film can be predicted within the first 15 minutes (there are no surprise twists...just a steady pace toward an inevitable outcome).
Jennifer is amazing in this role! She can really act in a way I never seen before! This is a crazy but great movie!
This was a pretty good spy thriller about Cold War ops by both the US and Russia. And Jennifer Lawrence is great as the tile character - an elite ballerina forced into the spy game. Of course they “train” her to be a seductress, etc. by using males in the most horrible ways. There’s even full frontal male nudity after they make one of her male comrades strip in front of all the other cadets -both male and female. It’s just humiliating. And then they portray every other male in the movie as a psycho, mole, torturer, or rapist! The writers only make the US male operative as the only male with a sense of morality and conscience- if there is such a thing in the spy world. It’s just blatant exploitation of men and sets back male equality decades. I think there are better spy movies to see...
Sexy spy, revenge, and the end. Boring plot. Rent don’t buy!!
It’s such a great movie binge watching all day every day!
It was ok. Just ok. Nothing to write home about.
The Acting wasn't bad. Jennifer was great! If you can deal with the violence then it was fair.
This was pretty good movie . I have to say the ending caught me off guard
Rented, out of intrigue and curiosity of a film I’ve been eying for a while but have been too apprehensive to plunge into. Turns out it was as bad (if not worse) than what I thought. I got through a whole half hour and couldn’t stomach it. And no, it was not J-Law’s accent, nor was it the slow pacing, but was a combination of a few areas. Firstly, flat acting that wasn’t emotionally connecting in the least. Secondly, a dry premise of a story that felt shoved together. And lastly, and most importantly, a disgraceful display of women and what they’re “good for”. To create agents solely based on seduction only after peeling off every bit of self respect they have is horrid in every sense. I felt like the view of the female populace was knocked back a few centuries and left me disheartened and disgusted. I’m gonna go find a barf bag and an infinitely better movie to show women kicking butt and taking names. Which won’t be difficult.
Very good spy thriller. I would like to say 'realistic', but I haven't as clue LOL
Si vous cherchez un film d'action, ce n'est pas le film qu'il vous faut. Parcontre, c'est un film riche en émotions et truffé de gestes subtils qui nous amènent au dénoument. Parfait pour une soirée tranquille et ce film nous pousse sur la réflexion des décisons déchirantes qu'une jeune femme doit prendre pour sa propre survie. Feriez vous les mêmes... Écoutez ce film pour comprendre ce qui m'a tourturé. Je le recommande!
Did'nt expect this movie to be so good but the acting and storyline went together well.
This movie is written like what a 14 year old boy imagines would be sexy to force a woman to do. It's garbage. Jennifer Lawrence's accent is all over the place. The plot is old, tired and well trodden. Watch anything else instead.
GUYS its amazing movie !!!!! My heart was racing few times i. this movie honestly you will not regret to watch this !
Like I said, stupid. This Jennifer Lawrence is not the be all and end all actress. She’s done. Bring some fresh faces to the big screen
Nothing too spectacular, just a fairly decent spy-thriller. But then spy-thrillers are over done and the genre is becoming boring. Ms. Lawrence, along with the other actors, does a credible job.
I watched this despite the poor reviews, because the trailer looked great. The movie was very good, Jennifer Lawrence was fantastic, and I definately recommend it.
This was a great movie from start to finish! Great story well done
it started off really good until it went nowhere and got extremely boring.
U can’t be on facebook and watch this in the background. Requires paying attention. Its a smart movie.
