Finally An Intriguing And Original Film
It seems to me that Hollywood has been pushing out endless childish sequels with poor actors recently.

Red Sparrow is none of those things. It shows a topical issue, gives its viewers lots of action and heart pounding moments. The actors are impressively good and take chances and push boundaries.

I am impressed that films like this still exist.

Trivia

When 'Red Sparrow' source novelist Jason Matthews completed his thirty-three year tenure with the CIA, he found that he was not content to remain idle in his retirement. Flush with time, Matthews took up writing for his second act. "The career was so experiential. There was a great gap to fill," Matthews says of his adjustment to post-CIA life. "It was either day trading, or fishing, or going for walks. It was as much therapy as anything else, starting to write." The longtime fan of John le Carré and Ian Fleming began work on 'Red Sparrow', which was published in 2013 and became a best-seller and the foundation for a trilogy: 'Palace of Treason' was the second in the series and upcoming is 'The Kremlin's Candidate'.

Goofs

One of soldiers involved in the interrogation strikes Katya to the back of the head with the wooden trudgeon. Such a strike carries an incredibly high risk of damaging vertebrae, or even detaching the brain stem causing immediate death. The risk of killing the subject of an interrogation through the use of such a strike, would be well understood by someone trained in interrogation technique. This is why rabbit punches are banged in contact sports.


Crazy Credits

The title doesn't appear until the 10-minute mark.
