Ballerina Dominika Egorova is recruited to 'Sparrow School,' a Russian intelligence service where she is forced to use her body as a weapon. Her first mission, targeting a C.I.A. agent, threatens to unravel the security of both nations.
This is one of two films shot in 2017 in which Matthias Schoenaerts played a Russian character. The other is The Command (2018).
American! American! Don't shoot!
Dominika suffers a broken left leg and has to use a cane to support herself. She is shown holding the cane with her left hand. This is not the correct way to support oneself if the left leg or foot is injured; she should use her right hand to hold the cane, thereby easing the pressure off the injured limb. Conversely, if her right leg or foot were injured, she should hold the cane using her left hand. When one walks, one's left hand and right foot swing forward, and then the right hand and left foot follow suit alternately. So, with her left leg injured, her right hand should hold the cane to help support the left leg.
The title doesn't appear until the 10-minute mark.
In 2019, the Indian video release was given a UA certificate with multiple cuts. This version is 124 minutes long.
