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.
