Ladies and gentleman, I am deeply sorry to report that “Red Sparrow” is one of the worst movies to hit theaters in my lifetime.
I took some time to go check out this movie Saturday, and as you all know, I’ve been hyping it big time. There was no way I thought a movie with Jennifer Lawrence as a sexy Russian spy and Joel Edgerton as a CIA officer could go wrong.
Well, I was extremely wrong. I couldn’t have been more wrong if I tried. I’ve been wrong about so many things in my life. For example, there were a handful of women I thought I could shoot my shot at in college. It went miserably, and I was very wrong. That pales in comparison to how wrong I was about “Red Sparrow.”
It’s nearly 150 minutes of pure garbage. Torture would be a preferable two and half hours over watching “Red Sparrow.” The movie makes no sense, the plot has so many holes that you could drain pasta with it, and the whole thing is outrageous.
I really don’t know how this got screwed up so badly. This was supposed to be the easiest home run of 2018, and instead the film was a disaster. I couldn’t be more disappointed. “Red Sparrow” was so bad that I almost left halfway through. Anything would have been a better use of time.
If you only listen to one thing I say in your whole life, please let it be this. Do not see this movie.
