all of it sucked...
Hard to find a redeeming characteristic, poorly photographed, poorly acted, poorly edited, music unmemorable. See something else, unless of course you enjoy watching people being tortured or enjoy being tortured yourself by a bad film.
Fairly well done. Missing some major parts of the plot from the book as they "simplified" the story for the movie script. Would have liked to see a bit more of the spy craft from the book included but overall it was entertaining.
Torture, torture, Rape, rape, abuse, abuse, Nudity. Had to leave 8 minutes early, just got unbearable.
Melodramatic long long oh so boringly long over rated movie about Jennifer Lawrence talking her clothes off again and again and again. I almost fell asleep, implausible story line prima ballerina breaks leg so is cast aside. What can I do to help my Ill mother. Think think I know im a top Bolshoi ballet dancer I could teach at the Bolshoi. Or go to a Russian sex spy school. Mmmmm let me think.
Anyone can write script using the amazing factual events that made the KGB the most efficient and feared intelligence agency in the world during the cold war. Although fact is more entertaining than fiction on this subject we still get an entertaining movie out of it. In case anyone cares the women who carried out these missions in real life were called Swallows and many, if not most, were married so as to keep some leverage on them back home. Men also were assigned to seduce women in NATO etc. as a means to get hold of classified information and succeeded spectacularly.
Improbable plot, gratuitous semi-pro porn, ridiculous blonde wig on the star for nearly the entire movie, more slasher than thriller. Skip this one!
Where’s the Atomic Blonde when I need her!
Best of the best
Best movie ever made for JL
JL absolutely gorgeous and no one can compare with her. Good Story Line, Love it!
I loved the movie, Jennifer Lawrence acting was superb, kept my interest throughout. Good spy and thriller movie, would recommend!
LITTLE ACTION,OLD PLOT,MILD NUDITY AND SUGGESTIVE SEX SITUATIONS
Several surprises violent nudity not. Sexy a good change from super hero movies
Horrific, violent rapes against women. Don’t watch this movie, don’t give them your money. Don’t put these awful images in your head or your heart.
You get to see LOTS of jlaw if you know what I'm saying
Gore and Whore are the two necessary ingredients of the story plot. The transformation of the gentile ballerina to part time savage was not demonstrated in her indoctrination. Whore portion; the prime groomed virtue of a female spy operative was covered. Less graphic blood and guts would have made it more believeable. Jlaw scares me now and definitely surpasses my intelligence. She is out of my league. Wonderful acting on her part if all "was" acting.
I would watch a soup commercial if J Law was in it 8>)
Very good movie. Would recommend seeing it.
Wow just Wow!
absolute garbage movie, what a slap for all women only movie ever to get up and walk out of, not even worth asking for refund. Very disappointed in J.L. Stick to Hunger Games!!
very slow moving plot,--the lighting of the movie on screen to me was very very dull, like they used a second hand camera for shooting, not worth the admission price
Best movie that you can watch now.
JL is so lovely, a lot of action, good story, great acting, what do you want? Best selection, no doubt!
Amazing thriller that keeps you on the edge of your seat. Jennifer Lawrence is amazing. The ending was such a surprise. Highly highly recommend it!!
Intense sexy and mind riveting.
I agree with the two posts right below regarding rating the plot, acting and overall entertainment. To that end, when Nash the American agent fires his weapon into the ground after a clandestine meeting in a park, his action is for the greater good. This act essentially means Nash gave up his own identity, which he did to spare the mole's life. It was a calculated risk so long as he could safely make it back to the US Embassy, and he does. The mole was an American asset providing information to Nash. The greater good here means that business can go on so long as the mole's identity, which means his life, is protected. I liked this value added to the plot. This view is flushed out in the story lines as the movie goes on. Excellent entertainment.
Action and suspense
A reply to the following review: "Totally inappropriate and way too offensive and brutal to watch. I can"t believe how sick people can really be." What is he reviewer's beef? That there's some violence and skin? Why's that inappropriate for a spy movie? The review is supposed to rate the plot, the acting and the overall entertainment value which are excellent.
What a perfect movie to release in honor of all the women around world on Women"s Day next Thursday??? Totally inappropriate and way too offensive and brutal to watch. I can"t believe how sick people can really be.
Save your money. She is too good an actress to play in trash movies. Violent and degrading. Very disappointed.
Oh, my! JL is awesome and sexy. Excellent acting, great story, very entertaining, worth all the money.
This is the type of movie that you will watch it twice! Really enjoy everything!
Love it, Jennifer Lawrence is always great!
This movie is way too offensive and inappropriate for the screen. I don’t understand how this film made it to the screen . Way too disturbing to watch ??
Really enjoyed this movie
