A well made movie with a good story. It's shocking that some would call the few brief and modestly shot sex scenes "soft porn". It's not. Nothing in this movie is gratuitous. If anything, it exercises restraint for the sake of realism. No splashy Atomic Blonde hijinks here. No idea why some feel the need to trash something that isn't to their liking.
Is so good
Just never gets good at any point. Not worth the time or money
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.
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.
Long, boring, aimless, bad acting.
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
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.
= Jennifer Lawrence
Wow! So raw and entertaining! Jennifer Lawrence gave a wonderful performance!
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.
I like Night Manager and I liked Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy but I didn’t like this, too much emphasis on her sex and not enough on spy craft.
I didn't initially like the film at all. Despite Jennifer Lawrence looking like the perfect femme fatale, she had a flat character who, of course, starts off as the prima balerina of the country's top ballet company. Yawn.. The film is insanely cliched and looks as drab as Russia often is (I am well familiar with the country). However, in the end I am giving this film 3.5 stars - it's worth watching - because I thought the crisis and the denoument were fabulously good. Completely unexpected and fun. Oh yeah, the final cliche - Americans are the good guys.
I just love it couldn’t get enuff of it
Yawn extremely boring 👎
Un des meilleurs spy/thriller que j'ai vu!
