Review | Red Sparrow | 2018

From The Dispatch:
It’s an exploitation film that thinks it’s a social commentary, but doesn’t have the guts to just be one or the other. In its milquetoast attempt to be both, “Red Sparrow” not only does a disservice to its actors, but to its very thematic identity, using its female characters as pawns in a male fantasy where powerful, independent women exist only to titillate and fulfill male desire.
