Awww That’s A Shame

Dominika Egorova is many things. A devoted daughter determined to protect her mother at all costs. A prima ballerina whose ferocity has pushed her body and mind to the absolute limit. A master of seductive and manipulative combat.

So when she suffers a career-ending injury, Dominika and her mother are facing a bleak and uncertain future.

That is why she finds herself manipulated into becoming the newest recruit for Sparrow School, a secret intelligence service that trains exceptional young people like her to use their bodies and minds as weapons.  Aww what a shame.

After enduring the perverse and sadistic training process, she emerges as the most dangerous Sparrow the program has ever produced (Of course she does).

Now Dominika must now reconcile the person she was with the power she now commands, with her own life and everyone she cares about at risk, including an American CIA agent who tries to convince her he is the only person she can trust.

Just like I must reconcile myself to the fact that I probably will only watch this  movie online for free.

This is what I don’t want to see and why I am glad that I saw the movie Atomic Blonde.  Not once did did the character Lorraine Broughton have to even pretend to want to seduce a male YO! and she STILL got the job done and even got the girl for a short time! Besides she didn’t present us with the protagonist suffering a career ending event only to emerge stronger and more powerful.  So unless Domenika is missing a leg I see no reason why she didn’t return to ballet.

Wonder Woman saved a guy who became her sidekick and Domenika can only trust a guy? Good Grief!

Where’s Delphine Lasalle now that we need her?

Those who can DO and those who CAN’T come up with contrivances like this movie.

Seriously? Check out the ONE action scene the viewers are given privvy to, so far:

Oh wait there were no action scenes, unless you consider someone putting a rope around an old man’s neck ‘Action.”

Sad when you consider that Alicia Vikander walked the walk and put in the hours to achieve bad assery.

Yes, I have been spoiled BIGLY from watching the movie Atomic Blonde: Because there will not be a same sex love scene in either Tomb Raider nor Red Sparrow, well at least not in Tomb Raider!

It is crazy how Hollywood churns variations on a theme (female action) and all the studios put their version out around the same time. Who is deciding this or are they all just ‘stealing; each others ideas?
See I imagine something like the story of when Moses found the 10 Commandments, except in my version Moses goes up the mount monthly to find out what movie needs to be made.

What’s even crazier is that…I don’t know what’s crazier but I am no fan of ‘Wire Work; so even though Vikander got buffed for Tomb Raider I wish the movie didn’t rely so heavily on the extreme jumping, that is so ‘Crouching Tiger/Hidden Dragon’ which was a great movie.
