| Not Enough Violence Or Nudity
So I will give it a 6/10. In a world dominated by sequels, prequels and universe films at least it was none of those and had some violence and nudity.

Unfortunately the nudity was only partial and what nudity there was not adequate. It is disappointing because there are so few smart mature films with the naturalness and beauty of the human body out there. It is all Disney/Fox wimpy G rated crap out there. At least there is some action in this movie and Lawrence looks delicious. Please Hollywood do not do a sequel. It will be Pacific rim Uprising or Independence Day Resurgence or JJ Abrams Mr Rip Off crap. Sequels suck (just see all the new Marvel films)

Quotes

Vanya Egorov: You are special. You have a gift like me. You see through people. You see them for what they really are. You do this for me, and I'll let you go if that's what you want. But I feel you won't. This is what you are meant to do.
Dominika Egorova: Yes, uncle.


Goofs

Crazy Credits

Alternate Versions

The UK version is cut for "strong sadistic violence" to earn a 15 certificate instead of an 18, which was done based on BBFC advice. As both countries make up the same distribution region, Ireland also received the same cut version (rated 16 for cinema and 18 on video). The contentious scene shows Ustinov being strangled:

  • In the UK version, we only see a brief establishing shot where his hands are covering his throat, cutting right to a close-up of Dominika struggling but completely clean. The censored footage shows the wire cutting into Ustinov's throat for much longer, in more graphic detail after his arms hang loose, and him bleeding on Dominika's chest.
  • Ustinov collapsing uses an alternate shot in the UK version, and the second close-up of Dominika is digitally bloodless as with the first, but there's still blood on her chest when putting on her clothes as per the uncut version (a continuity error).
The uncut version is roughly 13 seconds longer.
